I've just completed my first Life Coaching course assignment with Newcastle College of Further Education, and wrestled it into the post box.

And I've done my ironing.

And my 35 minutes of brisk walking.

So maybe I can go and do some reading now!

I'm reading Jonathon Strange and Mr Norrell at the moment. I'm enjoying it hugely, well worth a read. She explores a world in the 1800's where magic is mainly found through a body of academic writing, studied by scholars but rarely practised. She uses some very clever devices to draw you into that world, such as footnotes and the occasional old fashioned spelling. I like the design of the book as well - it looks like an ancient academic text book. Great fun.
