It's only 1.35 p.m. and I've read all my recently updated blogroll. Where are you all? I can't be bothered to read my book so I'll bore you instead.
We're off on holiday this coming Saturday. To Cornwall for two whole weeks. I have never in my life had two consecutive weeks away from home. We are taking some DVDs, several books and my MP3 player to keep us entertained. I think they have Corrie in Cornwall, too. So we won't do our usual trick of recording a week's worth then catching up when we get home.
There is no internet access where we're going. Well, there are probably loads of internet cafes serving cream teas, but we're not going to any of those. It will be good to get a break from blogging. I don't know whether we'll feel refreshed when we get back but I think it'll do us the world of good to get away from it for a while.
Just so we don't miss anything, can I ask you all not to post anything on your blogs from this Friday to, say, Sunday 24th June. There's nothing worse than a massive backlog. I don't think my nerves could take it.
I'm letting you know in advance so you can plan those two weeks. Why not take those two weeks off yourselves? Don't turn on your computers! You don't have to go away. You don't have to stare into space. Read a book, watch the television, like you did in the old days. That's what we'll be doing. Let's make these two weeks an international bloggers' holiday.
If you're stuck at work and your meany boss won't let you have the time off, dedicate those hours you normally spend blogging to interacting with your workmates. Chat about that book you're reading, what you watched on television last night. You'll be surprised just how much in common you'll have with them.
Some book reviews
