MAILBOX MONDAY/IT'S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING?





Nothing in my mailbox and the week has been hectic.



I have a couple of new books but I have gone back to re read a Rosy Thornton 


The Tapestry of Love


Right now I have far too much work on my hands! I also have a wedding to plan. My second daughter Shivanthi is getting married in September. She lives in Australia, her fiancee is in Ghana and the wedding here is in Sri Lanka. Lucky for me, she is very easy going and is perfectly willing to leave the details of picking out stuff to me. Having done this once before for my eldest daughter, I am just pulling out the notebook I have and using the same vendors for the second!  

Though the New Year is now over, things will only start today in actual work terms. So there is backlog of stuff to attend to. On top of it all, Colombo is suffering, really suffering from a heat wave which does not show any signs of breaking. We have had showers in some areas in Sri Lanka but not in Colombo. By 2 pm everyone is inert and inactive!

Getting back to books though I am inactive in that area myself, I am still visiting the blogs as I do love to see what everyone else is reading!

It's fun to re-read a good book! Comfort reading, it is.

Good luck with all the wedding preparations involving three countries and many people. I'm sure you'll do a good job!

Goodness me that sounds like it will make for some complicated wedding arrangements! Congratulations though!

I hope you find some time to read and I wish you rain!


Have a great reading week!

Enjoy the reread. I liked that Rosy Thornton book.
I was the first of 6 daughters to marry and I know my mother referred to her notebook for each wedding :) Hope the plans are stressfree for all.

I read that first paragraph and thought "That sounds like a book I'd like" before I realized that it was actually your life! LOL.

Uggh I don't cope well in heat like that, hope there's some relief soon. Another wedding, how exciting .. good luck with all the planning. Will they be living in Australia after the wedding?

Sounds like you're getting off pretty easy in the wedding planning. Good thing you kept your notes. I hope the heat breaks soon there. I'm just ready for the chilly weather to move on out of here. Warm days keep teasing us but then we cool back off. Enjoy your week!
