7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol 147)
Last week after reading of a couple of fantastic Amazon deals, I slumped into a pity party, bemoaning shipping costs from the States to Australia. However I was instantly struck with a moment of sheer brilliance, what if my favourite bookseller had a bargain box too? Popping over to have a hunt around I discovered it does indeed!!! So Book Depository fans check out their Bargain Bucket, I love narrowing down to look at children’s books, that way I can justify my spending;)
Two days ago my mum’s best friend suddenly passed into Eternal Life. Frances has been mum’s bestie for nearly 30 years, that’s a long time, a lifetime of sharing and support, these two ladies have been massive supports to each other through alot of life’s adversity. Feeling comforted to know that Frances will be now reunited with her two sons who have gone to their Eternal reward before her. Please pray for the repose of Frances’ soul, and pray for her husband H, her two boys and d-i-l, most especially if you could spare a prayer for my mum as she grieves.
Today is officially the beginning of school holidays here in NSW, two weeks of possibilities. Princess and I are planning some op-shopping and garage sale-ing, ’cause finding a bargain is always fun:) Also have plans to finally visit a 2nd hand book shop nearby, oh and our library needs a massive cull, the books are overflowing.
Just wanted to stop by and say hi!
Sending prayers for your mom and her friend's family. And congrats to your kids on their fine accomplishments.

You know I love it when you talk books!
I did not think I'd ever need to say this to you, but repeat after me:
Thou shalt not cull. Thou shalt not cull. Thou shalt not cull. Got it?
My fellow book crazy!
Well I gifted to my friend and she was excited, does that count?
