My own best thing? Handed in To Defy a King 6 weeks ahead of schedule - yay!
Then again I have to dung out my study and do other admin tasks - perhaps not so yay!


LOL I spent a good part of today doing something similar - need help? ;)

Michelle: I love the new book cover!

BosswellBaxter: That is good news! FIL has glaucoma, he manages it but it means that hubby needs to have regular checks to see if he will develop it.

Me! I have managed to get back here! I have been reading lots, but due to college work and home life time has been precious!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

My dishwasher really hasn't worked properly since I moved into this house, and it hasn't worked at all for at least 4 years. Today, I finally did something about it and ordered a new one. It should be here next week!

SM - Sounds like a great day out! Keep us posted on how the latest Potter movie is.

For me, best thing today is seeing my hubby for the first time in 2 weeks!

That cover is a vast improvement over the 'wing.'

Yesterday, Harm and I went to see "Potter" with a friend of mine in Tacoma and afterwards we went to Red Lobster for lunch, yum! I had the Maine Lobster and Crab Bake (3 small lobster tails, snow crab legs, shrimp, scallops, red potatos, corn on the cob and brocoli. For desert I had Key Lime Pie. Harm had Walt's Favourite Shrimp and a chocolate wave cake/ice cream.

The only downside is when I got home I had a really bad migraine :(
