Meanwhile, I have been trying over the past few months, to get a better balance in life. I found that I had slippped into a pattern of spending too much time at the computer and one of the things that was being sacrificed was the reading of books. I have been a voracious reader all my life and it became imperative that I make time for it again. Most of my reading is done on the Kindle Reader app on my iPad but there is nothing like the tactile pleasure of a real, proper book.
I just finished The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading. The next book in line is one I won from the delightful Lucy. I am really looking forward to starting this one.
I'll be packing it this weekend because I won't be here. My mum is arriving in a couple of hours and on Friday morning we are running away to London for the weekend. Yay!
