Don’t worry, I’m not going to go on and on about this topic. So many other people have already done just that. What I am going to say is that I spend too much of my day sitting. It’s just too easy to do just that, especially in the UK, where the weather generally isn’t very supportive of your spontaneous desires to go outside. (It’s cloudy and windy outside now, right when I want to play some badminton in the garden.) And now I’ve stumbled upon a rather terrifying infographic about the consequences of sitting.

This all means that today I technically started my summer holiday, but it doesn’t really feel like a holiday. For a start, I have so many projects I want to work on, from this and my online log of journal articles and books I’ve read, to learning HTML, Italian and knitting, to passing by driving test. Oh yeah, and Flan and I are on a special diet for my benefit for the month so I can lose some weight (half of which will probably be put back on when we go to Verona on June 30th). On top of all that, I also hope to do some more nursery work, as I have to buy birthday presents for both Flan and my brother this month, as well as get a bit of spending money together for Verona!
So expect some more blog posts and hopefully a link to my reading log site using Drupal Gardens!
