The D List - does not include 'doing' facebook!

I haven't read a book for ages that I have enjoyed so much.  I laughed, cried, and commiserated with Jackie, the main character as she learns to live and love.   It's also a book about blogging and the power of words.  Definately worth a read.  I must admit that I found it as I was working in the returns room at my library.  Pretty good perks I say!  I read the first page and was totally hooked.

Today is D day in our house - doing stuff in order to go away tomorrow.  Doing things like washing, ironing, packing, taking the cat to the cattery, charging the billion and one gadgets that we all own, freaking out wondering if I've remembered everything.... the list is endless.

Am hoping to get to the Auckland Public Library so I can check some emails, do some uni postings and check my facebook (not that I'm addicted or anything).  Many thanks for all the well wishes for good health to my Father in law.  He started chemo on wednesday, so everyone is just taking one day at a time.  As one of the customers in the library stated when asked how she was, 'every day not underground is a good one!'


  1. Hi Jo,

    thanks for your comment on my blog and reading my random words. And thank u for telling me about your blog. I saw you wrote posts about your prac. I haven't read them yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm sorry about your father-in-law. I hope things go ok. And shouldn't you be going to Auckland Public Library, just so you can see the library. or is that just what weird librarians like me do :)

    I'm hoping to publish my paper after Reality 2.0 and I'm sure I'll blog about what Stephen Abram has to say.

    Cheers, Clare.
