Miracles do happen!


I, for the first time in about 10 years, have read a book!!!

I have tried to read many books, since the children have been born but have failed on each occasion. When I read, I like to read it in a short, concentrated spell otherwise I end up reading the same bit over and over again as I'm too tired to remember what I read the time before.


Now the children are older and much better at occupying themselves and because I intended to switch off completely from work, I thought it was time to give it another go, so I asked Jeff to recommend a good book he thought I might like - he choose 'One Day' By David Nicholls.

He made a good choice, I read it from cover to cover during my week in Cornwall and loved it. I won't tell you what happens but I see it's been made into a film due out in the next week or so - I wonder if it will live up to the book? Will have to treat myself to a night out to see!

Oh I haven't read that one, must check it out. I read in bed at night some nights around 11:00-11:30, its a nice escapism

This is on my 'next to read' pile. Looking forward to it now. If someone who doesn't normally read can read it in a week then it must be good!

I'd never heard of the book before today, and yet I've heard a new report, read about it on a website and now you've blogged about it. Isn't it funny how things happen like that?!

I've heard not so good things about the Yourkshire accent of Anne Hathaway though ;)

My boyfriend is obsessed with this book! It was set on the street he lives on and will tell anyone that'll listen!
