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!
For me, the truly amazing thing about being a blogger is the wonderful sense of community and the friendships that blossom over the years. Some bloggers don't like to share personal stuff, (and that's cool) some blogs are an open book, I guess I fall somewhere in the middle. I love seeing friend's photos, sharing in a small way in joys and sadness, ups and downs, getting to know them through their personal posts. How about you?
I mentioned last week about long months of tests and the wait for answers. My specialist appointment confirmed I have Myocarditis (an inflammation of the heart) from a virus I didn't know I had (well I did but I didn't know it was a virus lol.) Anyway to cut a long story short it's a relief to know there is a reason for my utter exhaustion, it's now a case of finding the right heart medication and rest, rest, rest and heal. Frustrating at this time of the year but ... it could be worse.
Thanks so much to everyone that has kept me in their thoughts and prayers over the last few months. Mike and Callum are always there for me, they've picked up the slack on the home front, little Bella is my constant 'resting' companion (I think she's enjoying being a slug lol) and my very dear bestie Alaine is a never ending source of support and laughter.
Our friends' beach wedding was lovely and after a week of having a Christmas tree up with nothing on it, Callum helped and our tree is now decorated ... can't rush these things :)
The photos I took were atrocious so I'll just share the one that did turn out

DADDY LOVE by Carol Joyce Oates ~ I'll be reviewing this one this week so I don't have to think about it again. I knew what to expect with content when I picked this one up and I 'get' that you don't get happy ever afters when dealing with sociopathic sexual predators but after such horror the ending was just ... SHITE!!
