A belated Thank You to my Secret Santa!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Secret Santa (aka Melody) for all the great gifts! I've been out of circulation for a while and apologise for not posting this sooner, but better late than never, eh? Although I'm not totally ready to come back to blogging full-time, I love the book bloggers' holiday gift exchange and didn't want it to suddenly be February with me still not posting this, so here we are.

Thanks Melody, I love all the gifts you sent and can't wait to read the two books: Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi (I loved Persepolis and have really gotten into graphic novels so am immensely looking forward to this one) and Dark Visions by L.J. Smith, a new vampire-type book which Melody says she hasn't read yet either - it sounds fantastic and I can't wait to sink my teeth into it. Ha ha. :-)

Melody also sent me a cute keychain that says "Friendship is not won by the giving of things, but by the giving of the heart". So cute and SO true!

I also got a beautiful Christmas card with an actual personal message - I don't get that many of those anymore and it was much appreciated!

Hope Melody and everyone else had a wonderful holiday season! I did and am now trying to cope with the end of my pregnancy and the waiting for baby to arrive - I've had all sorts of painful ailments throughout and am SO ready for him to come out so cross your fingers that he'll be early! :-)
