A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila :)
An eventful week; some wonderful, some ... not so much.
I won't be at all offended if you just want to skip to the book stuff but those that are interested in the goings-on in our life ... read away. I always mean to do a separate post but run out of time each week and I love finding out what my bloggy friends are up to via Sheila's Monday meme so I figure some of you probably do too :)
My dear old friend in hospital isn't doing so well but it was nice to spend some time with her again last week. She's not going back to her home town any time soon so I'll probably visit again.
Alaine's daughter Kylie delivered a beautiful baby girl, Charlotte Michelle on Tuesday and mum and bub are doing well. I'm hoping to have a visit and cuddle later this week.
I'm having nerve conduction tests done tomorrow so hopefully there's an end in sight to the pain and pins and needles in my arm. Unfortunately the test is around the same time as author Katherine Howell (Silent Fear) is speaking at Victoria Point Library. I've been so looking forward to catching up with Katherine and still hope to make it but will just have to see.
Mid-week little Bella bit a bat on our back deck (try saying that fast) and was in turn scratched by the bat which resulted in an ongoing saga between vets, the Department of Primary Industry and Biosecurity. Long story short, Australian bats/flying fox carry Lyssavirus which is closely related to rabies and on Friday afternoon Bella had the 1st of 2 required rabies vaccine. As it was an extremely unusual situation; dogs don't normally have contact with bats unless a bat is sick and out of its habitat, protocol wasn't really in place so waiting for decisions to be made was quite stressful for us. Bella on the other hand was wondering what all the fuss was about ;)
and finally, we did make it up to Tin Can Bay for a family visit with my Dad which was really nice.
This week I'm hoping for an uneventful week so I can catch up on reading, reviewing and blog visiting ... fingers crossed :)
