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, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time.
On the home front:
Last week was a busy one, the usual stuff and still making a birthday present for youngest son's 21st, a lovely midweek catch up with friend and author Sherryl Caulfied (Iceberg Trilogy) which involved a 5km walk and yummy breakfast. Reviews and blog visits were thin on the ground but I did get a couple of reviews scheduled for this week ... and if I stop reading for another week I might actually get caught up HA
I finally had the nerve conduction tests on my hands but have to wait until later in the week for results. Still hanging in there with the gluten-free thing until I get those results. My gorgeous granddaughter came for her regular sleepover and we had a lovely couple of hours at the park.
Tomorrow it's been 7 years since mum passed away from Nodular Melanoma so I'm heading back to Toowoomba to take her some flowers and then catch up with a friend of 25 years. As usual around mum's anniversary I'm on my soapbox to say please please get your skin checked, including your scalp. The Melanoma awareness campaign is huge but many people are still unaware of the relatively innocent looking but very dangerous Nodular Melanoma (mum's was pink and on her scalp so it looked very much like a pimple. She didn't get much time and was sadly in the 2% that die from a stage I melanoma)
