Linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ 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.
My granddaughter's 1st birthday was the big event here, a big family get-together celebrating Mia and the joy she has brought us. I can't believe how quickly the year has gone, I love being a nonna! We had family stay most of the week and with all the preparations and social stuff I needed an impromptu blog break to look after myself.
I know it's disappointing when reviews aren't posted in a timely fashion, my apologies to those authors I had commitments with but I also know you are very understanding of the need for health and family to be top priority.
I'm participating in Paris in July again this year. My love affair with Paris continues and I hope to post photos and a couple of book reviews. Pop on over to Tamara @ Thyme for Tea and join in the fun.
#FitReaders Weekly Check-In
Yay me, on target again this week. The combination of intentional exercise and the timer as a reminder to move for 5 mins each hour that I'm on the laptop is keeping me on track. And of course I'm in again for July!!
