You are spoilt for choice, Cookie - there's enough reading there to keep you going for at least a day or two!

DH laughs when Iím looking at them and deciding what to read. He doesnít understand that I have to Ďfeelí like reading the book I select. He isnít a reader of fiction at all.

I am exactly like that, Cookie and my DH is also exactly the same as yours!

Bought 2 12 1/2 k of flour. Works out at $2.50 a kilo.
Ordered a 3 way kitchen tap. Hot, cold and filtered.
Yesterday, the joiner/ cabinet maker installed the library and book shelves. Wonderful. Iíll unpack more book today.

I'd like heaps more bookshelves. DH says books are slowly taking over our home. I try hard not to buy too many, but then all my birthday, Mothers' Day and Christmas gifts are book vouchers.  Just how I like it.

Cookie, I completely understand. It has given me a great deal of pleasure unpacking my cooking books. GS is coming tomorrow to fill the top shelves. These will be other books. I need the cooking ones where I can get them .

We head off today for Scotland and Spain, for a couple of weeks.  Not looking forward to the long flights as my foot is still giving me a great deal of pain but have arranged for wheelchair assist at the airports so at least that will be a great relief.  Looking forward to catching up with all the family in Scotland, and Spain will be a whole new country for us (mainly at a conference, but will have some trips around as well).

Marina, enjoy your trip. Donít be backwards in asking for a wheelchair when in Spain and Scotland. Look out for a group of Aussie cyclists. GS it joining a cycling group in Spain.

Cycling in Spain for GS will be fun .
DS had a late hockey game tonight .. 6pm . They played hard but just beaten by a goal . Incredible warmer night and full moon was special.
Had a relaxing day on Friday , lunch with the girls and we then went to natural mineral spa for the arvo coffee and a late night home . Very hot ones 37-40 , didnít venture into the ice cold ones . But next time will take a water bottle and drink heaps more ( headache all the next day ) then out collecting DH in the paddock till 9.30 at night , the joys . DS has two SACs tomorrow, has to had in a large practical year long Assignment for Rist the next day . DD is bunkered down doing assessments for uni .
