That is really good and hopefully you will have enough reading material to take your mind off your present worries. You do need outside help but you also, and I am saying this in the nicest possible way, need to get a grip of yourself. For you, it has happened at just the right time.

still waiting for the 'big ' parcel to arrive. Cant wait, they said there might be something for my DGD too so it will be like Christmas a few days early.

got my prize yesterday delivered by a bulging eyed buckling legged postman whom I thought was about to have a heart attack on my doorstep. He staggered into my living room with this huge heavy, parcel and I began to search through it. I am so pleased with it, been reading a book tonight then thought ' I will go online to tell all at gransnet how happy I am'. I will not enter any more comps though for a while as I think it would be unfair to others.

How lovely enjoy ethelbags..

I am enjoying my prize, I cant concentrate on reading very much at the minute so I am reading the more 'lighter' novels but with a few more serious ones in mind for the next few weeks. DGD has bagged a couple to borrow for over Christmas and so has her partner. I am in great demand. Im reading 'A week in Paris, by Rachel Hore'. One of my fave writers and I have several of her books in my bookcase.(I hoard books). My greatest regret was not being a librarian or working in a bookstore.
I have wrapped up the two childrens book for DGD for Christmas.
My dining table is like a publishers warehouse at the minute but its no problem as I love the smell of books.
many thanks grans net once again.

I received an email to say I had won a book prize. Title of book Lost and Found. wink Not received it yet, nearly two weeks on from the email. Nevertheless very excited about it arriving. Patiently waiting.
