So here we are, Christmas Eve Eve, and I think apart from a couple more presents to wrap we're ready for the big event. Turkey is bought, as are the sprouts (yeuck), plans are afoot for the Family Crib service at the Parish church followed by the pub tomorrow, and come Sunday it'll be time to watch the kids' eyes light up. The slight fly in the ointment is that my Grandad is in hospital and unlikely to be home for Christmas as he needs an op. He should be fine once it's done though, so we'll make a happy day of it. I hope everyone else is looking forward to a lovely Christmas.
I was so busy last Friday (office Christmas do) that I didn't manage my review of the week so today I've got two weeks worth! Since my last Friday recap I have read and reviewed:
Red Right Return by John H. Cunningham
While I'm Still Myself by Jeremy Mark Lane
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
Creepers by Bryan Dunn, and
The Animals of Grandfather Mountain by L.L Mitchell
Another library visit today saw me pick up Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's one of those books I feel like I am missing out on, so that will be my 12th book towards the Borrowed Book Challenge (13th if you count the novella I had too) completing that challenge.
Happily Monkey loves visiting the library and she has 4 new books to make us read over and over. I'm beginning to think I should start a children's book blog!
I will take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays if you prefer) and a very Happy, healthy, peaceful 2012 to everyone.
