So what else do you do while you're slaving over your daylight-bulb lit craft space then? I'm in a downstairs room, seperated by a doorless doorway from the lounge. During the day, when I tend to do most of my crafting, this works really well. I use the tv as a mega big radio and flick between Radio 2, 4 and 7. In the evening (when, in my opinion, Radio 7 is just the business), I generally 'listen' to the tv. I do less and less at my table in the evenings, mostly because it takes so long to cruise all the blogs! I deliberately placed the PC in a corner of my work room which means that you sit with your back to the door and therefore any view of the tv in the lounge. I cannot, just can't follow a programme properly if I don't watch it, so I don't bother trying, the lovelies call me in to watch 'important' or interesting stuff. Although Top Gear is only a favourite of mine because there's no sound I like more than hearing those two enjoy a mutual laugh. During the day though, because I'm alone, (not lonely, I must add!) if there's nothing on the radio and I plan it fairly well, I listen to a book. Recorded novels are just the best! I'm an avid reader - well I would be if I made time. But I fear reading a bit, because if it's a really good book..I read until it's finished - which causes a noticeable neglect of my house, life, cookery, bathing issues..you understand. I like a story narrated by its author too, and particulalry I like a good autobiography. Do you think anyone will ever be asked to record their blog entries? Lots of people treat them like autobiographies - if you read a good 'un, do recommend it to me. The other thing that keeps me company is silence. Sometimes I'm so engrossed that I don't notice when the CD finishes. And I certainly don't talk to myself - well not just to break the silence anyway. Oh and of course, I eat. And drink. At the work table, as WOYWW has also proven several times. So what do you do while you craft?
And forgive me for being pushy - but you may need to know - a new post over at 2 Scrap Ladies.
