Liz and I went to the Coventry meet up today – so quick by train, and a not far to walk after really. We had a quick look around the museum which I had been to before with kids from school. It’s a really well done museum, and there are some great exhibits. The meet was in the coffee bar, and we sat in some comfy chairs by the window, unfortunatly it was also in a draught and I got rather chilled. There were some bcers I knew already and a couple of people I hadn’t met before or only met once before – so it was nice to have a chat with them. As my releasing supplies are diminishing a bit, I picked up a few books for future release too. I only wild released 2 today although I took another 4 to the meet, I also released 3 on Thursday evening. It’s the Birmingham meet next weekend too, so will have another chance to get some releasing done.

I have started to feel as if bookcrossing has begun to take a back seat in my life – I don’t want it to – I think it has just happened naturally after more than 4 years on bc. I suppose after the initall enthusiasm you organise and take part in fewer bookrings etc. So in an attempt to re-ignite my original love of all things bc I plan on attending a few more meets etc this year, and organise more rings and rays. Although the rays I’ve just advertised on the forum have had a pretty rubbish take up. I may have fallen at the first hurdle however – as I was planning on going to the Coventry meet up this weekend, but now I have found out the station is a long way from the transport museum – anyone know any different? I am hopeless at finding my way to things – so if it’s complicated I may not go after all.
Half term has arrived and I am still loving life in year 2. I am looking forward to not doing much this week though, it’s great to have the freedom of getting up when you like, going out or not when you like. I am particularly excited about getting the trees in my garden chopped and pruned on Monday. I am meeting up with Liz one day, and with another friend next Friday, and have a bonfire party to go to next Saturday – but apart from that I haven’t much on. I plan a lot of reading, and jigsaw doing, maybe I’ll watch a couple of flms I have either on dvd or on my box that I have been meaning to see for ages.
It was the Birmingham meet today, which is a lovely way to start half term I think. I had three books passed to me, and returned home to two pms for my address *gulp* it’s a conspiracy! Tomorrow I am going into Birmingham to cheer on Jen and Liz in the Birmingham half marathon. Then I’m off to my mums.
Someone mentioned christmas shopping today, and it reminded me of this fantastic website which my sister found, and which has us both pretty excited. I haven’t bought anything off it yet – but I will be.
