Blue book, emptying a bag and going nowhere to do nothing.

1. I come home from work and find a parcel -- Fiona Robyn's The Blue Handbag. I've joined her 100 Readers project. Once I've finished reading and done the interview, I need to pass the book on to someone else. I love the idea of books being re-read by a whole succession of people. If anyone likes the sound of it, let me know and I'll pass it on to you.

2. Tipping the last quarter bag of compost into a new planter. I like the dead weight pouring and tumbling away.

3. One of the other students in my art class says her daughter has been camping in Spain since March -- just relaxing on the beach, eating and sleeping. She felt she'd never had a gap year, so she and her fella went out there to stay until their money ran out.
