More books!

I finished reading ‘The Notebook’. Actually, I found it a bit disappointing as nothing much really happened! It was a pleasant enough tale of two people who fall in love and live happily ever after, but that really was about it.

However, my copies of ‘The Hunger Games’ trilogy arrived on Friday, so I’ve been happily immersed in those since then. I had already read the first one, so started on the second straight away and am now about ¾ through the last one. I love these books! 

3rd in the series.

And, after that I’ve still got ‘The Time Travellers Wife’ and the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy to read!

Another bank holiday!

Actually, this was a double bank holiday! We had an extra day off to celebrate the Queen's diamond Jubilee. She has reigned over us now for 60 years, and I recon she's done a pretty good job of it.

So, my extra long weekend consisted of:
Saturday - Shopping with niece #2 and BBQ with friends
Sunday - Dinner at Mum and Dads
Monday - Sister-in-Law's birthday party
Tuesday - Sleep, dog walk and running!

My one nod to the jubilee was that I painted my nails alternately red white and blue. I'm not clever enough for fancy designs so it was the best I could do!

Back to work tomorrow, this has been a really nice break though.
