A much-needed palate cleanser

After yesterday's indecision about what to work on I spent the evening sat on the sofa adding a few squares to my sock yarn blanket and watching A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix (which I adore; I loved How I Met Your Mother and was genuinely sad when I watched the final episode. A Series of Unfortunate Events stars Neil Patrick Harris (who played Barney in How I Met Your Mother) as one of the central chartacters, and I can't help thinking of A Series of Unfortunate Events as The Barney Show. In any case, I love watching A Series of Unfortunate Events!).

Today I feel refreshed and have cast on the sock I was procrastinating over. It's going well, and matches my nails beautifully!

An extra happy-thing at the minute is the current book I am reading: Bill Bryson's The Road to Little Dribbling. I read my first Bill Bryson book in my teens, and have read many more over the years. The book is a travelogue covering Bryson's trip along the longest straight-line route you can take along the length of Great Britain and I am really enjoying his descriptions of the places he visits.

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along.


  1. It's on my bucket list to backpack through Wales so maybe I'll have to give the book a try. I've enjoyed his other books.

    1. Do! It's made me laugh out loud several times. I have no idea why I left it on my to-read pile for so long.

      Are you planning on travelling round the whole of Wales, or do you have a specific route in mind?
