Book Club

Well, book club...what can I say. I had a really nice night. It was so nice to go out and be an adult for a change, especially with Daniel not getting home until the wee hours this morning after 6 nights away. All I have really done is be a Mum and go to work, there has been very little adult company in that time - other than going to work, if you can consider those that I work with adults haha. There was a really good mix of women there some that had known each other for many years, like Charmaine and I and a really good mix of young and old (er) ...what a great way to widen your circle of friends!

We have planned the next year of books, one a month and we will meet monthly to discuss them and have a lovely dinner (of course). The first book was chosen by Carol - It's a 'self help' book called The Angel Inside. I am really unsure about this book but I'm happy to give it a shot. I'm off to the book shop in a minute to see if they have it. I've already done a library search but nothing :( My choice of book - not until August - is The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble. I have already read one of her books and am reading another at the moment called The Tenko Club, not as good as the first one I read but still enjoyable. I'm looking forward to discovering new authors, my whole family are readers so it will be good to pass the books around to them as well and hear their feedback. Some classics were chose, Gone with the Wind and To Kill a Mockingbird, can't wait to read those ones!

Well, I'm off now to the book store and to also meet my cousin April for a coffee. Her and I tend to get together on a Wed or Thurs afternoon for a chat because that is her 'weekend'. Not for long though, she starts her new job in a month and then it's back to normal weekend days for her so will make the most of our mid week get-togethers while they last.

No scrapping to share today, not even a card but instead I'll leave you with a photo. I have been dabbling in Photoshop, trying to teach myself for some time now and this is one creation I did a while back that I absolutely adore of Daniel and I. Eventually, this will be on a canvas on our bedroom wall.

Until next time,
Shell xx
