I've been somewhat MIA as I've had a hectic work week. I led a 2 day conference this week, attended a 1-day Intermediate Excel 2007, have an inbox thats grown to 600+ mails - and am completely wiped out!
This week-end I require some serious ME-time. DH is taking diva junior to her horse riding lessons tomorrow am, so that I can attend a stamping and inking demonstration at my favourite scrapbook store, yeah me!
Schools are also on break from today and goes back to school on 11 April. My daughter brought home a stunning report card and we are so proud of her. DH then took her to Exclusive Books for a little treat, and these are the books she selected as she is an avid reader
There's no escape
When everyone is watching you.
Emerson Watts was pretty sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a
straight A student whose brain had been transplanted into the body of a teenage
But it turned out she was wrong.
Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's mysteriously gone
missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, ex-boyfriends
crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op, and a British
heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.
How can Em balance all that with school, lingerie runway shows, and weekend jaunts
to St. John—especially when she's got final exams; a sister who is headed to the high
school cheerleading championships; a former best friend, Christopher, who's intent
on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love; and a company
she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...
But then, nobody said it was going to be easy, being Nikki.
Aprilynne Pike's #1 New York Times best-selling debut, Wings,
is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl named
Laurel discovers she is a faerie, sent among humans
to protect the gateway to Avalon.
Thrust into the midst of a centuries-old battle between
faeries and trolls, she's torn between
a human and a faerie love, as well as her loyalties to
each world. In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue,
romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
Have a great week-end, and hopefully I will get big chunks of time to just CREATE!
