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. I love this meme ... thanks Sheila :)

A good week and a lovely weekend. Total Recall at the movies on Friday night - we all loved it. Saturday we had a visit from my eldest son, Anthony and Christine. BBQ dinner and drinks around the brazier, it was lovely to spend precious time with them.
