Aftermath and what we are reading

The girls decided to have a pajama day, and of course by the time 4pm tiredness had set in Zoey was demanding to know why she was still in her pjs. “Why mummy, WHY am I not in clothes?”

There was relief all around that we were at home today with no visitors so Nomi and Zoey could get fully stuck in to playing with their new toys and reading new books.

A friend gave them Dr. Seuss books which I’m not familiar with but after a day of reading and re-reading them I’m now on first name terms with Sam-I-am, and Things Two and One.

But the girls are not the only ones getting stories I am reading books again! Hurrah after three years I’ve finally figured out how to squeeze time in for reading. I bought myself a Kindle as my gift to myself for three years of parenting, and banned my iPhone from the bedroom. Now I read my book before bed and more importantly when I wake in the morning (I’m normally conscious well before 6am but unable to move so not to disturb the pingus).

Within a few days of getting the Kindle I’d managed to finish The Goldfinch which I’d been reading all year, and now I’m galloping through Gone Girl which is quite brilliant.

    Huh. I joined a book club for the first time, just recently. The last book they read was Gone Girl and the one before that was The Goldfinch. Next on the list is The Fever Tree.
