Hello lovelies, there's free shipping (yay) and $5 off each item in my Society6 shop until March 9th. Hooray! Click here for more.
Is it really March already? This year is whizzing by... soon it will cold and rainy so we've been making the most of the sunshine while it lasts. There have been trips to the beach and the botanical gardens, and lots of splashing in the paddling pool. The Big Boy has turned into a real water baby this summer and we have had several requests from him for a house with a pool. Fingers crossed for that lottery win then :-)
So now that March is here I can share my choice for The Year In Books. I've been reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and I cannot put this book down! The blurb from the back of the book calls it a story of love and race centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria who face difficult choices and challenges in the countries they come to call home. So, essentially a love story. I'm less than halfway through this one but I'm hooked!
I really hope the rest of the book doesn't disappoint because I'm already looking forward to trying out Adichie's other books. Anybody else read any of her books? Let me know if they're worth a read.
Linking up with Laura and The Year In Books.
Things that have broken this year: our car, and it took seven, yes, seven, weeks to be repaired. Then the toaster died. Not the biggest deal in the world, I agree. But now I've just gone and dropped my relatively new phone on the floor and the screen has gone all weird. Sigh. I know it's just stuff, and trust me I'd rather my phone broke than anything horrible happened to an actual person but it is such an inconvenience. And I'm just a little bit cross with myself for dropping it in the first place. Not the first time today I wish I had an 'undo button'. This morning I asked the stupidest question on a tour of a prospective school for my son. Spent the rest of the morning squirming at how my mouth engages without consulting my brain first! One of those days I guess!
