  1. Hmm…hoping to put October (ok, even September) behind me and start afresh. Unfortunately it was 2 months of injury, healed, another injury.

    Anyway, glad October turned out well for you, especially with Chicago and the birthdays.

  2. Your moving day is approaching fast now, happy for you that you sold your house, must be a huge relief for you.

    I’ve read 50 shades of grey during Summer and they are definitely the worst books I have ever read. I didn’t like it at all and ended up skipping complete chapters in the last book. At the moment the book is hot here in Holland and apparently I’m the only one who didn’t like it 🙂 (which is because it was so poorly written en it got bored after a while).

Say what?
