Year in Review

I did this last year and it feels like a tradition. I've taken the first sentence of the first post of every month last year and posted them together to hopefully give a general overview of this blog in 2008... I think it gives a fair representation - my kids, books, going back to school. Big themes of this year (and my entire life!) What does yours look like?

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year, and hopefully 2008 brings everyone what they wish for.

If only things were this simple, right?

It's Mothers Day here in England, and I've had a great day.

On the day Littlest was born, it was a Thursday, and as usual, I went to toddler group with Oldest in the morning.

Over at Hidden Side of A Leaf, a new challenge has begun called Weekly Geeks.*

Here is my list of books that I read in May.

Also read half of A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, which I've put aside to finish another day (hopefully in July, but we'll see!

Last month I felt chained to the 1001 books list.

It's back to school time, and I've been reading lots of posts about other bloggers going to grad school or taking their kids to their first day at school and I feel all a bit left out.

As most of you are aware, it's Banned Books week in America.

..November is kicking my ass.

We held Oldest's birthday party at our house on Saturday.

*I actually welled up when I realised this would be included. I haven't yet talked about how I've felt in regards to dewey's recent death. I have no words to say that haven't already been said. She was a great blogger, someone who built a great community of book bloggers around her. I didn't know her very well, but I always meant to participate in more Weekly Geeks, the next 24-hour read a thon, sometime soon, I'll do the Carnival... The dewey-shaped hole that is left behind is a huge one. I will miss her.

  1. This is a cool idea. I've only had my book blog since July, but I'm going to try it with my personal blog. I'll probably wait to post it until the end of December, though.


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
