The book first, though quickly. I needed a book for the Every Month is a Holiday Challenge and since September 30 is Botswana's national day, I read the fourth book in Alexander McCall Smith's No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, The Kalahari Typing School for Men. I love this whole series - the writing, the characters, the descriptions of daily life in Botswana... everything. They are all short and sweet and charming. This particular one is no exception - if you need something light and uplifting to read, I definitely recommend the entire series.

And my news. I had my 21-week scan this week and we found out that we're having a boy! I'm spending some time thinking about my future life as Mom to a little boy... it takes some getting used to, I was convinced I was having a girl. I'm thrilled to bits about this news though and so very excited. I can't wait till he's actually here!
