Sorry for my MIA ...

Yes, I know that you have heard it before ... but it's been way too long and I didn't plan on staying away this long.

The last 6 weeks have been hectic and emotionally draining ... but it looks like we are finally back on top of things and from here on things can only look up.

My hubby has had a change of job - which was totally necessary, at his age he shouldn't have been doing the physical work he was and his body really suffered for it. Thankfully now, he is back on to a desk job and his body is slowly starting to repair itself. He doesn't have anywhere near the aches and pains that he did a month ago. Downside of the job change - less money, so frantically reorganising financial commitments to see us through until the pay rise promised comes through.

Haven't done anywhere near the reading that I would have liked to get done - also had to deal with my son and the breakup of his long term relationship. Knocked him for 6 and finally now (even though he is holding out hope they will get back together) he is starting to get settled once again and he has all of his family and the friends that matter around him supporting him.

So ... apart from the odd illness that his hit us and updating my pc ... that's about it. I have been slack with my other blogs too ... and plan on getting things happening all over once again.

I did find the time to read a few books ... and I doubt that I will have time to get reviews done for them for awhile ... so here's a quick summary.
Shadow of the Moon by Rachel Hawthorne (Rating 6 out of 10)
MisGuided Angel by Melissa de la Cruz (Rating 8 out of 10)
Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz (Rating 8 out of 10)
Original Sin by Allison Brennan (Rating 8 out of 10)

I am currently reading Luxe by Anna Godbersen ... I have read it before, but after speaking to a few people that loved it, I am rereading it to see what I missed ... lol

Water for Elephants is next on my reading list - interested to hear from anyone else that has read this ... love to hear your thoughts on the book, and coming movie.

Till next time ... xoxoxoxo
