I pity the poor folk who have less IT literacy than I do and try to borrow eBooks or audio books from Fulton library system! I have been trying to get a few alternatives to listen to and read on the plane on Monday but blimey you need a flippin’ IT degree to figure out the library’s system – I used to work in IT and have still been struggling! There appears to be a cluster of issues making it nigh on impossible to borrow a book. A combination of few available books, several file formats, several apps needing to be downloaded, and zero compatibility with my Macbook – resulting in one frustrated borrower. It’s easier and cheaper time wise just to buy a couple of books on iTunes or go back to the good old paperback. MM thinks I’m fooling myself anyway – thinking that I will have time to read with a 4 year old and a 6 year old in a confined space for 9 hours is just asking for trouble:) Anyway the third book in the Larsson trilogy will be joining me on the plane and I will get to read it – though I’ll be sad when I’ve finished it – I’ve loved these books so much. Next on my list is the new Robert Harris book – The Fear Index.
I’m off to the pool with Poppy this afternoon again to avoid the workmen at home. I had a sneak peek in the room yesterday and my oh my – it’s all gone! The old bathroom is completely demolished and the old closet wall is gone! So we’re almost at the ‘fun’ bit – that is bringing in the new bathroom! It does look a bit creepy in there now – as MM pointed out – they get their plastic sheeting from the same supplier as Dexter Morgan
I opted for a bit of summer color today with my Boden fab jersey tunic in prune (I have the moss here too). This really has been the surprise of the season – it is so lovely in real life – the colors really pop. Luckily I also have the perfect J.Crew cashmere cardigan to coordinate with the orange in it – and my nectarine Tory Burch Revas work perfectly! Apologies for the dark photo again and all the stuff behind me – my packing is in full swing!
