Meh,life updates and stuff

So. yeah opps sorry and all that- I have ben uber busy, seriously so. Been reading tons and my current TBR list is off the scale. Christmas is fast approaching so we have been getting the stuffs in for the boys.

Not a lot of toy play toys this year, as they are getting older ( Eight and 10 respectively) so far we have a mini iPad each and a new Nintendo 3D XL bundle as their main “sancta’ gifts

Smaller gifts include Ninjago shirts, Liverpool training tops, desktop football ,a magazine subscription, scooters and books by the bucket load.

Both boys are taking part in the Accelerated Reading Program at school and its kinda meh. The main issue (according to the boys) is the restrictions placed on their levels. Both are a the top level but the younger boy in particular is complaining that it is stopping him from reading the books he wants. He is reading Jeremy Strong atm but he’s already read most of his stuff because the older boy went through a JS kick about two years ago and I bought him about 30 of his books. I  just told him to read what school gives him, and I will cover anything else he wants at home.

 

My Bad..

Did I just drop off the edge of the tinternet  again? I  did.. Bad girlie..?

It was my birthday week ,last week, so I am officially ‘old’ MEH. I’m still waiting for my brain to catch up with my physical age, but that’s not gonna happen anytime soon methinks.

I did make out on the present front, though. I got the TorchWood box set, the Heros box set, the Riddick trilogy dvd set, and err a MoonLighting box set – I really have no clue as to why husband dear bought me that.. oh and a new hot water bottle, which I was delighted with.

The last DiscWorld book was released last week also,The Sheperd’s Crown which was exciting and devastating at the same time. I haven’t started it as yet, my copy is sitting right beside me but it has been years since I have read anything Tiffany Aching related so I though I would go back and re-read the back catalogue starting with The Wee Free Men.

You do know the the domain name – Temporal-Confusion -was taken from  ‘Wintersmith’ which was the third book in the Tiffany Aching & the Nac Mac Feegle series.. *smiles* just sayin’..?

Quiet Please!

So, I’m sitting here typing this out on the Ipad Air not the easiest thing to do but never mind 😀
Hubbies has taken the younger boy with him on an errand.I’m left behind (thankfully) with the older, who is currently jumping around like a loon whilst listening to Queen. Yes, he’s ten years old and is into them BigTime. Luckily his rents are and have always been huge fans so he has their entire back catalogue to peruse at his leisure 😂 as long as he finishes tidying his room then it’s all good. I have held two of the new books that I bought him back as an added incentive. He’s a big reader and according to school test thingies he’s around 16-17 level.Scary but he does take after me in that department. My dad gave me the ability to love books,so in turn I passed that onto my boys.Small boy is around 12 year range so all is good.Both are in top tiers at school and doing very well indeed. Older boy enters Year 7, so it’s a big year for him with sitting the Transfer Test 😝
I have just finished Hard Landing by Stephen Leather,it’s a re- read as I first encountered Stephen Leather via iTunes and my IPod many years ago,and I’m starting on Soft Target shortly. Again it’s a re-read for me but hey it’s Spider Shepard and gads know I can’t get enough of him.Black Ops just came out and once I finished it I was salivating somewhat ,and not looking for an 18 month wait for the next, the opportunity to purchase the first six arose and as I did not have them in hard copy I fell on them.Happy days 😎
