This is the hour where I start bargaining with myself on whether or not I can have a snooze. I am definitely usually in bed, asleep, by now. It's also eerily quiet, munching on a prawn cracker sounds deafening. My next update will probably be in the morning so I can have a few hours sleep and rest my slightly aching neck.

I'm looking forward to getting back to Bill Bryson's The Road to Little Dribbling.
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Mostly only to eat, and a brief conversation with Josh about Harold Wilson/Beechings railway closures. As you do.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
That I have barely made a dent in my snacks!


  1. I did sleeping, and it was very nice. Only about three and a half hours but MAN I feel better now. Onwards! Hopefully at the end of the next hour it'll be acceptable for me to go make coffee but I think 5:30's a teensy bit early to be waking up the household by accident, so... *yawns expansively*

    1. I just made so much noise making coffee, forgot to grind beans yesterday and then kept bashing things around in the kitchen!

    2. Hehe, nice. In our new(ish) house my mum and stepdad's room is downstairs riiiiight at the bottom of the stairs, so you get creaky step noise, and finding-the-light noise, and feline "OMG IS IT BREAKFAST TIME" noise... Let's just say I managed to wait until about 7am and that's probably a good thing. :D


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
