It feels like simply ages since we had our Wedding Lunch, and the wedding day itself seems to have receded into dim and distant history, but at the same time I'm struggling to get back into routine. Having had something so exciting on the horizon for over a year, I guess it is not a little surprising that life feels a little strange after it. And frustratingly, it seems to have hit onto my reading too - I had a plethora of wonderful books which I read on my holiday (and because it was a holiday I didn't keep notes to blog about them afterwards), but now I'm back to the dregs of the TBR, and a very disappointing library trip last week.
How nice then to recieve a parcel of two books from my friend Geraldine on Saturday, completely unexpectedly. We had lots of presents for US for our wedding lunch, so how nice to have a present just for ME, the week after :)
I'm heading to the library at lunchtime in the hope that I will find SOMETHING to entice me, and to enable me to start writing more about books on this blog again (although I do have a cake post scheduled for tomorrow!). The highlight of last week's reading was a Maeve Binchy book which I'd not read - even though I thought I'd read all of them as they came out - a good story but not something that I especially want to write about.
In the meantime, ahead of tomorrow's cake post, here's a cake that I made for my friend Kate's birthday at the weekend - the poor girl was stuck in hospital, so I hope this made up for it a little bit, although I was sad that they wouldn't let me take in candles!
