Bad blogger

It happens to the best of the bloggers, even more so to the rest of us... Every time I think I can post more regularly I just loose the thread...
No, this time nothing particular happened, in fact if we don't count the general uncertainties at work things are looking up as I get more and more task I like to do, and can do rather well (translations, interpretations).
Nothing new on the knitting front either, I really need to finish some of my current projects so I could start something new...
One of the Yarn Harlot's posts made me think what strange creatures knitters are. We rejoice at some of the strangest incidences (that would annoy the heck out of others). Hours of waiting in a dr's office? Hurray, knitting time!!! A train trip taking hours? Oh good, I will knit! Stuck in the metro? I hope I didn't forget to put my knitting in my bag! I can't move around without pain? At least I can knit without feeling guilty!
On the other hand even though I swore I will not do it I find myself wondering more and more about spinning. I mean I just don't need a new craft do I? I mean I am already very annoyed the unavailability of the better yarns in this god forsaken country, imagine what would I be able to find in terms of fibre, rowing. Absolutely nothing. Or some VERY raw wool just cut off the sheep if I am lucky... YUCK. I am not afraid of an other appliance, because I can imagine using the simpler, portable method (spindle) and I do have a spinning wheel in shambles down in the country house if the urge really would hit me. BUT... and other BUT is here. My knitting time is already severely limited, what would happen to it if I take up spinning???
All the same, I keep looking on E-bay at this and this or this... Not that I could by any of them... my yarn budget is limited, and diminishing fast...

Acually I don't worry... it was just a statement... I was never good at writing a journal, and I thought this blog might change that...

it has. you just don't have to do it everyday. just enter in non-routine things.

Of course I wasn't planning to blog about "original things" like I got up, I took Chrs to shcool, went to work, etc...
