Miss 10 is on school holidays and is off with her grandparents for five days by the coast. Some might think I'd sit back with a book and relax. The cat kept jumping on my lap and didn't seem to understand that while I love cuddles, I'm not so keen on cat hair when it's 40 degrees celcius outside. After the fourth headbutt I gave in, left my book with a last glance of longing, got into the car and did some dutiful Christmas shopping.
And now the house is a mess of wrapping paper, glace fruit and cake mix and I'd like to read a book off my TBR pile.
Except the world didn't end on December 2012, and I have to finish book two of Daughters of the Abyss after all. If you'd like a glimpse of Book 1, here's ILLUSION.
