It's been an eventful few weeks here.
First of all, I had a nasty dental abscess with a week on antibiotics (and all the joy that brings!), followed by painful dental work, then it was my mother-in-law's washing machine packing up and us having to source a new one for her and arrange for it to be delivered and installed, hospital appointments to attend and dealing with that paperwork.
And then.... we have finally, thankfully, have had an offer on my late mother's house, which we have accepted, so that is all in hand at present, with all of its associated mountain of legal paperwork and phone calls.
The two young ones have been invited to be bridesmaids at a wedding in Scotland in the summer, so we are investigating how feasible it will be for us to have a family holiday up there so we can meet my very dear Scottish friend :-)
I am hoping to get back on my schedule of posting book reviews very soon.....
