Well, my hope that writing a first entry after my hiatus would "break the seal" was clearly unfounded. The good news is that as well as keeping up with work, I've also finally started getting stuck in to our personal unpacking and sorting out our new house. There are various hurdles still impeding progress, but we're gradually getting there.
One of the hurdles is a lack of bookcases. Frustatingly, I do actually own enough bookcases for all my books, but the ceilings in the new place are much lower than in my previous flat, and so the tallest ones no longer fit. Add to that Tom's book collection, which he doesn't have enough bookcases for either, and we're a bit stuck. We're going to make some to size, but that means we can't unpack our books until we've had time to do the DIY. And as any fellow book-lover will understand, the place just doesn't feel mine until I've unpacked all my books.
The good thing about the wait is it'll give me time to print some "ex libris" stamps or labels, so our book collections can be combined and organised alphabetically without getting mixed up for all time. Not that I'm expecting to have to separate them any time soon, but you know, they're my books. It's the principle of the thing.
All of which is as good an excuse as any to post this startlingly hot birching picture:
Thanks to my friend J for sending it to me. A bibliophile after my own heart. <3
