Linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and It's Monday! What are You Reading? hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. In Sheila's absence, share your Monday post on twitter #IMWAYR.
Making headway with the clean-up from last week's flooding. We still have no home phone and no internet as a result of some line work during the week because of that weather event.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mums. The mums of kids with two and four legs, mums-to-be, the mums who provide care and nurturing to children in their lives, the dads who are also mums and a special wish for the mum's who can't hold their angels and those who have said goodbye to their own mothers.
My Mother's Day was special, I was blessed to spend it with my family. I wish my mum was here to share the blessings and it doesn't matter how much time passes I miss my baby girl terribly.

CONSPIRACY GIRL by Sarah Alderson ~ my first Sarah Alderson and it won't be my last!
Finished last week:
A DESPERATE FORTUNE by Susanna Kearsley
ROSE UNDER FIRE by Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity #2) ~ audiobook. Very emotional.
WALLY THE WARM WEATHER PENGUIN by Stephanie M. Ward ~ so cute!
ONLY WE KNOW by Victoria Purman
NORTHERN HEAT by Helene Young
THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE by Cynthia Hand (audiobook) ~ a departure from Cynthia Hand's usual, very moving.
