A crisp and sunny Monday ...

I had a wonderful weekend, didn't do a scrap of writing but did lots of reading and got out of the house for a change. I popped into Fareham centre to visit Mandy Baggot who was signing in Waterstone's and naturally left with three new books. Yes, I know, I know; more books?! It's okay, The Exec ordered us a new bookcase this weekend too!

At the farmers market I bought Meon Valley watercress and a couple of ribeye steaks from Woodlands Jersey Beef who supply Michel Roux at Le Gavroche no less! Yummmmm.

And spring is just about here!

So a trip to the garden centre (with tea and cake) was in order for Sunday. Thus, we now have twelve heritage primrose plants to get planted in our woodland garden under the apple tree. And some ferns. And some other stuff.*Cough*.

But now, suitably refreshed, it's time to get back to work. And Monday mornings are actually quite a treat when you wake up to a 5/5 star review like this:

 "This story left me speechless ... I truly enjoyed this book. Rachel's Greek Billionaire (Andreas) can kidnap me anytime. Hey, I'll go more than just willingly."

You can read all of lovely Evie's review here at In Love with Romance .

Did you do anything exciting this weekend?

Thanks so much Judy and Sally!You're total sweeties.

I'm good at buying the stuff, Bon, but with any luck The Exec will be the one getting his hands dirty! Thanks forthe lovely congrats.

I share your love for books... I can't ever leave a bookstore without at least five. I'm bad that way, the same as I am for my love of handbags and shoes tee hee! You're right on too, Spring is here and time to do lots of planting. Well, the hubby will do the planting while I sit and watch him do it HA!

Can't wait to read more of your work... What's cooking? Give me another hunk like Andreas, please ;0)
