A slight indulgence - on my part

I actually did something I haven't done for ages, really enjoy doing it but never make the time - I read a book! Now that might sound silly but I use to read an awful lot, then life came along and the reading disappeared to be honest.  Both girls were big readers but uni stopped them, though B is now starting again and Amanda does during holiday time.  When they have a new book they always say 'you would like that one mum', so I put it on my bookshelves waiting for that time when I can indulge....and that happened this week. Amanda had to go to hospital on Thurs to have three wisdom teeth taken out under general anaesthetic, which meant I would have an hour or so to kill at the hospital.  So I picked up one of the recommended books called 'No Time to Say Goodbye' by Linwood Barclay.

It is all about a 14yr girl who has an argument with her parents one evening and when she wakes up in the morning they and her brother have disappeared.  I shan't say any more in case anyone decides to read it.  I found it very compelling reading so much so at some points I couldn't read it fast enough to find out what was going to happen next.  I have two more books by Barclay to read and very tempted to start one today, but still enjoying the aftermath of the first one lol.
So today Amanda has headed back to uni early as she has got a job as student warden and needs to be back early for the first year students moving in.  I had wanted to go with Mick and Amanda but I had already committed myself to photographing the People and Gardens cricket match this afternoon ages ago!

Cannot believe that it has taken me 13 days to get back to this post to actually post it - shameful!!!
