Medicine for the soul8:22 PM
This week I haven't been feeling so well :(
I haven't felt like getting out and about at all, and I haven't made it in to tafe the last couple of days. My forced confinement to my bedroom has meant I've got quite a lot of homework done though, so there is somewhat of a plus side.
Today, I had to take some time away from the Mac, to rest, just for myself. And I must say, when you're feeling yucky, theres nothing quite so comforting as a good book.
I have a huge obsession with books. Particularly nice big fat (healthy-sized!) ones with pretty covers. I hoard them like a crow does with shiny things! My collection has far overflowed my bookshelf. And at the moment, I'm especially enamoured with clothbound books, and ones with ribbons :)
These are just a few from the pride of my collection; 20 clothbound penguin classics released a year or so ago, with fabulous cover designs by Coralie Bickford-Smith.
(In posting these pictures on the internet i discovered there are actually more to be collected! Gulliver's travels, Inferno, and A Christmas Carol are on their way to me now, and there will be three more after they are released in a couple of months. The collection grows!)
Of course, a good story can be helped along with a nice hot drink, chai perhaps?
... and maybe a little chocolate or two :)
Jordan and I bought these from the Central Markets last Friday night. I have to admit they didn't actually last until today :)
As you can see, I'm well on my way to being mended!
