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. In Sheila's absence, join in sharing your Monday post on twitter #IMWAYR. Also linking to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
On the home front: Well you know what they say about best laid plans! The week was a chaotic one culminating in a weather event that caused flooding in SE QLD on Friday. Our suburb had one of the highest rainfall totals in Brisbane (285mm) and our garage and office/scrapbook room flooded. Not a lot of damage, thanks to my eldest son's help pumping out water. We still have a huge mess to clean up but it could have been far worse. Thinking of the families who lost loved ones in floodwaters.
24 hours on, family were able to make it through from the Sunshine Coast to celebrate Callum's 21st. Hopefully this week I'll have a chance to look at the photos I took.
Ricky Martin's One World Tour was a fabulous concert with a mix of old favourites and new. And Ricky Martin in a kilt #HOT ... gives Sam Heughan a run for his money ;)
