Naomi’s Weekly Wrap Up 144

The first week of school holidays went well! I had a 40th, kids went to my mother's for a few days, so I had some alone time! I picked them up and came home Wednesday. The hubby is home until next Wednesday, so we got a bit of work done. I redid my back garden... and I am NOT a gardener! 

I have read and listened to a few books, and managed to write the reviews, but haven't got the posts ready as yet. I will catch up over the next week or so.

    A 40th?? Happy, happy, girl! Congrats on a great haul and a productive week. Gardening, huh? I'm not a gardener either. I have a rock garden with only 2 types of flowers...I pay my kids to weed it! *ha* You and I will both be playing catch up...hmm, I'm betting you catch up faster. ;)

  22. Surprisingly, I haven't read 'When I'm Gone' yet, but I'm guessing that the answer to your question is yes. Hope you enjoy.

  23. Bugger! I hoped you had! I think it is a continuation of their story... I'll have to think about it then!

  24. I just put them both on hold at my local library. Hopefully it won't take too long before they're both available.
