Blogging is the New Crochet

A habit is forming.

At the end of a long day, and a long evening getting three lively kids settled for bed, the Prof and I often veg out in front of the tv.

At such moments, tired as I might be, my hands have always sought a task. I don’t know why exactly, because I have no particular contempt for the mighty tube, but I find it very hard to simply sit and watch.

So, at various times I have knitted, crocheted, breastfed, cross-stitched, sketched, breastfed, kneaded bread, done cryptic crosswords – and more recently (when no more breastfeeding was needed) worked on the vile Sudoku.

And now, to the new habit.

The laptop blog, avec movie.

Currently watch-blogging: Kingdom of Heaven on dvd, Orlando (or Balian as some 12th century lass may know him) is sparing the life of the servant of the man he has just killed… the servant who (is fortunately fluent in English and) will take him to Jerusalem.

God, this stuff is predictable. No wonder my extremities get bored.
