Thank you plus bits

Thank you all for the lovely comments and emails regarding my previous post. My mother in law is an angel and has offered to look after Littlest for an afternoon every week while Oldest is in pre-school, and just the thought of such freedom for a few hours has lifted my mood considerably.

N took me to the movies THIS weekend instead of next, and we went to see Coraline in 3D. It was lovely doing something together. He mentioned something about going to the cinema every month! I could have clapped my hands.

My assignment is due tomorrow. I still have work to do on it, but it will get done!

I'm behind on my May book reviews. It's unlikely that I'll post them soonish, but look out for reviews for Falling Man by Don DeLillo, Savvy by Ingrid Law, Small Island by Andrea Levy and Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka.

I've also read City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare and Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr, but I don't know how I feel about reviewing them just now, as they're both sequels. I'm still thinking about it.

Do you Twitter? Last month it felt like everyone was posting their views about twitter, usually how much they love it and how addictive it is. I never really got it, so I thought I'd spend a few weeks using it on a trial basis, and now I love it too. I normally check Twitter first thing when I log onto my computer! I still haven't gotten the hang of it all, but let me know if you use it especially if I haven't followed you yet.

A proper post coming soon, just not today!


  1. Glad you are feeling a bit better and getting some breathing room from from your MIL and N. We all need back-up and a chance to have fun on a regular basis!

    I'll enjoy hearing what you thought of Small Island when you get a chance (no pressure!).

  2. Good to hear things are getting better. Your mother in law sounds fab.

    I avoid Twitter like the Plague - I just don't have time to get addicted to one more thing. I already do Facebook and with reading blogs, the computer is taking over my life!

  3. Im playing catch up right now and I havent read your previous post yet. I hope everything is okay with you.

    Sounds like you're keeping busy which is a great thing. Take it easy lady xx

  4. I'm glad you're feeling better.

    I have a twitter account, and follow you, but I rarely use it. I find it so busy and overwhelming to keep up.

  5. I'm glad things about going much better for you.


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