I'm an Aunt!- A Personal Post

I haven't been posting a lot for the past couple of weeks (sorry about that!)- but I have an excuse! It's been a busy time for me at work, working 42 hours a week, and we are short staffed at the moment so I seem to have been rushing about twice as hard. At the end of the day I'm usually so exhausted and my brain is so fried that the thought of stringing a coherent sentence together is too much, and just collapsing into bed is much more appealing!

I've also just become an Auntie for the first time and have been busy meeting my gorgeous new nephew Aaron James.

He is seriously the cutest little thing in the world. Now that I've got the ball rolling, I thought I'd share some other random facts about myself as well:
  • I'm addicted to chocolate and drink a lot of tea.
  • I have a thing for sunset pictures- it's something about the reddish, orangey, purpley colours that does it for me.
  • Red is my favourite colour.
  • My lucky number is number 2.
  • I adore musicals and could happily watch Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables and others over and over again. A few weeks ago I went to see Legally Blonde: The Musical in London and it was fantastic!
  • I would love to go travelling one day- my dream destination is Australia.
  • I'm a bit of a sun-worshipper. Whenever the sun is out (which is rarely) I love to just lie out and absorb the rays. I hate the winter when it's cold and dark all the time.
  • I'm lazy- I love to sleep in late when I can.
  • I'm very shy in person, especially when meeting new people and never know what to say. I worry that sometimes this leads to me getting mis-interpreted as stuck-up. But I'm really not I promise!
So that's me. I'll be back now writing properly for the blog again. I didn't know what to expect when I started the blog, it was sort of an experiment and I never thought it would get this far. I'm not very good with computers and have sort of fumbled my way through so far (confession- I still don't understand twitter at all), but I absolutely love blogging, and now spend all my time talking about books with fellow bloggers who are the nicest people in the world, and I have so much fun. I'm hoping to completely redesign the blog in the next few weeks so look out for it.
If you're still reading thanks for getting this far, and have a good weekend.

  5. Hi, I'm your newest follower :) I know it's all about the books, but I just couldn't resist commenting on this post, as I'm a big musical lover myself and live in Australia *g*

    I saw Legally Blonde last time I was in London (Nov last year) and really loved it. The cast is amazing :)
