nothing to report

I've really been neglecting my blog lately, poor little bloggy!
And the title of this post is actually not true, there are things to report. Just not very interesting ones...
My reason for being a ad blogger is this: I have been reading. And baking and tending my garden (well three strawberry plants and one chili plant). But mostly reading.
A while ago (a month, two months? It's all a bit of a blur...) Sky started showing Game of Thrones. I immediately knew it was for me: fantasy, knights, kings, dragons and evil plots! I don't however have sky on my TV and I could watch it on the beast upstairs but, apart from the fact that it freaks me out, I don't really know how to work it. Besides, I'm rubbish at watching TV these days, I never remember when anything is on and end up missing it every week. So I did it the old fashioned way and bought the book the series is based on.
And like that I was hooked! So for the last few weeks all I have done is read. Last night I started the fourth book and soon I will have finished them all.
So, if anyone out there is a massive nerd like me and haven't read these books I  highly recommend them!
The whole series is called A Song Of Ice And Fire and you really need to get them all in one go as it's torture if you finish one and haven't got the next one to hand!
I have sat up until the wee hours most nights just reading. Whenever I have a minute (waiting for the kettle to boil, waiting for the iron to heat up) I read. They are addictive!

In fact, I'm going to read a bit more now before I go to the shop to get the stuff I need for fajitas with sis tonight!
