Where did this week go to?

One of those weeks that passes you by, when i've not been sleeping or resting i've been reading a little and stitching only a little.

Santa brought me a few new books, 2 of them were the same, one in paperback and the other hardback. Lynda Page is a local lady author who writes novels about the city i live in so its nice to know the places she is talking about. The hardback one was a bit special though she has written inside it just for me. The paperback one is from my son and that is also signed inside by the author when she was at a local book signing and he managed to get a copy!!


Hopefully this weekend will be a bit more productive on the stitching front, the weather is supposed to be rain, rain, rain yet again, so a good excuse to stay inside and settle in front of the TV.

Hope you all have a great weekend

  5. I'm reading The Sooner The Better, Lynda Page. I think shes a great writer. Its nice to picture the places you know in different era's in each book. I'm thinking of parting with my collection of Lynda Page Books! So that others can enjoy them. I'm not one to re-read any of them, so they are being wasted sitting on the shelf collecting dust. x

  8. Enjoy your reading, Julie. Lynda Page books sounds great, but i've never encounter her books here yet.
    I've just finished one of Erica James, i like her bu she doesn't have that many. Quite a pity.
