Been Kinda Lazy!

Well I have there's no two ways about it I have hardly done anything, apart from getting slowly addicted to G's DS...

And we did have some eventful days last week G fell over right outside school and is now sporting a lovely round graze, with a nice yellow tinge to it, she did do it on Thursday.

And then both the kids had their swine flu injections on the Friday, I got to sit in the waiting room while hubby took each of them in G was super brave and hardly cried but Dub cried a fair bit but then we had lost his dummy so he had new ones (and he doesn't like new ones).

We found the dummy on the Saturday he has a new hiding place on the top of the sofa behind the cushions...

I really need to do more of everything... Well maybe not eat so much but everything else I really need a jump start...

Well everyone else is doing it…

What's that you ask...Its the bloody snow , everywhere I turn someones talking/blogging about it so I thought I'd add my thoughts.

Firstly I'm sick of it, especially with G back to school and having to cart dub in his quinny pushchair, its like a rollercoaster for him.

(Even without the snow I hate that pushchair, the brakes don't work properly and the raincover doesn't fit right.)

Anyway even with my pushchair driving skills being poor at the best of times its been like having a forty five minute walk over a beach its been a nightmare, although the first day was the worst because the snow kept sticking to the wheels and then they would jam up and it would be sliding with a mound of snow in front of each wheel.

And then with G wanting to hold hands too so I'm pushing the 3 wheel death trap one handed, well I think even Jesus would curse like a sailor all the way there and back.

But I can feel the burn in my arm muscles and legs so it can't be all bad...

Well G starts the journey a little over excited making snowballs and running around and then burns herself out before we get halfway... Then she walks all duck footed because she thinks her feet are wet when they're just cold... Oh its a fun packed trip to school.

I did wish it would stop snowing today so I could go out and make a snowman but the kids just won't hang out outside if its blowing in their little faces. G has been wearing my sunglasses to stop the snowflakes getting in her eyes. She does look funny.

I haven't fallen over yet so thats definitely in the pro section, G has a few times but nothing too major so wahay!

Hope its a little warmer tomorrow so we can go out in it and play without having to go to school or to the shops, although knowing my luck we will need milk again...

Happy New Year

Ok so I've been super slack on here but I have a couple of images for you in celebration of Lost airing in USA on 2nd Feb....
You can get these fab cards from my etsy store!

Book 2...Death's Mistress by Karen Chance

Oh I'm whizzing through these books hehe, only 98 to go, (well its 97 really I've read another one I'm just a little slow at posting).

Anyway this is the sequel to Midnights Daughter which follows the exploits of Dhampir Dorina Basarab. I wasn't sure if I had read the first one but after a couple of pages I realised I had and it all came flooding back.

Also that I got Midnight's Daughter for Xmas last year from my mum as well as the first Keri Arthur. Well I thought it was a bit strange.

It's a very easy read, even with a lot of characters and following the twisty story but it keeps flowing and it is easy to follow. But you might want to read the other one first.

Here's the back page for a taste:

"Dorina Basarab is a dhampir - half-human, half-vampire - and the only way she can stay sane is by unleashing her sometimes uncontrollable rage on demons and vampires that deserve killing.

After the fortunate demise of her insane uncle Dracula, Dory is back home in Brooklyn, hopinh that life will calm down for a while. But then two visitors arrive, her friend Claire, asking for Dory's help in finding a magical Fey relic, and the gorgeous master-vampire Louis-Cesare, desperate to find his former mistree, a vampire named Christine.

Dory and Louis-Cesare soon discover their problems may be connected: the same master-vampire Christine is bound to is also rumoured to be in possession of the relic. But they soon realize there's more at stake when Christine's master turns up dead. Someone is killing vampire Senate members, and if Dory and Louis-Cesare can't stop the murder, they may be next...

First Day Back...

Well G had her first day back to school yesterday.

Which would have been lovely apart from carting dub in the pushchair through the snow...

Oh and the fact that he was poopin and puking all day....

Oh well at least he's better today.

But its still snowing grrrr.

Book 1 of 100...Deadly Desire - Keri Arthur

This is the 7th in the Riley Jenson series and I would usually re-read the previous books in order before starting the new one but I just couldn't resist it, (plus all the rest are in boxes under the stairs). But when I buy book 8 I will definitely re- read the rest beforehand.

That said, blimey Arthur's novels and having 2 small children do not mix well at all, I just couldn't put it down and seeing as I picked it up last night as soon as the new year had barely begun, I didn't want to waste a second of potential reading time, I was amazed at how quickly I finished it though.

If your not familiar with the series here's what the back page says

"A rare hybrid of werewolf and vampire, Guardian Riley Jenson, always seems to be facing danger. She's trying to catch a fiend who's left a trail of female corpses behind in a bizarre ritual of evil, just as a series of brutal slayings also shocks the vampire world of her lover, Quinn. So the last thing Riley needs is the heat of the upcoming full moon bringing her werewolf hormones to a boil - or the reappearance of a sexy bounty hunter, Kye Murphy.

Torn between her vamp and wolf natures, between her love for Quinn and Kye's lupine charm, Riley knows she's courting danger and indulging the deadliest desires. And when her hunt through the supernatural underworld brings her face-to-face with what lurks in a darkness where even monsters fear to tread, things begin to get really deadly."

I'm totally useless at writing reviews because I'm too worried about not giving away the ending and end up hardly describing it at all. And if it wasn't for my mum buying me full moon rising last xmas I may never have know the literary delights of Keri Arthur.
