It's Monday! What Are You Reading

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila :)

It's been two weeks since I posted and what a busy two weeks. I celebrated a birthday, Cal has his first day back at school,  year 12, final year of schooling, my goodness where did it go?? We celebrated Australia Day and have had a week of hot, humid, summer weather. Alaine & I went to a scrapbooking flood fundraiser day at our favourite scrapbook store Daisy Chain Scrapbooks (pictures next week) and last but not least a fun 1st Birthday party for Alaine's grandson.

my gorgeous boys ~ can't wait to scrapbook these photos!
