What's on my shelf

I'm woefully late with this - I've been debating taking the time to do it all weekend, but the essays are looming large. Still am, so here I am blogging instead! Yay procrastination! You know I'll be regretting this stolen hour when it's 2am and I'm totting up marks.

This little meme called 'My Place & Yours'is from Pip over at Meet Me At Mike's. This week's theme is what's on the shelf.

I've spent the whole weekend sitting at my desk marking essays - when I'm not being pestered by a small spotty child that is. On the windowsill is a small stone and I've been watching the light change across it as I struggle with misused semi-colons and free-form grammar. Its roundness contrasts so perfectly with the straight white lines of the windowsill.

  7. Thanks for the comments people, it's a lovely little stone to look at and I'm just pleased I managed to capture it in a way that actually looks like how I see it. It fell out of the bowl I have funny things like that in and got put on the windowsill in a half-hearted attempt to clean up so its position was a happy accident. I wish I could remember where I found it, because I do have some with stories, but alas I think it was just a nice stone I picked up on a beach and probably slipped into a pocket before Mat could make me put it back ;)
