Wishing you healthy, happy, wealthy and wise.

Today was supposed to be a big party day. We were to travel to Derbyshire for a lunch to celebrate a family members 50th, but last night one of the family elders had a heart attack. He is OK but the surprise lunch and the big, happy birthday celebrations are off. Instead we will be staying home, and I will be grateful (for 10 minutes at least) for what I have.

Thank you for stopping by this year, and for taking the time to leave your comments. I am looking forward to reading, writing and more sharing in 2011.


  1. Although we only just 'found' each other's blogs, I am so pleased to find a fellow bibliophile and look forward to many more tales of books sold, books read and enjoyed, of recommendations too perhaps.
    Sending you very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

  2. Thank you Maggie, ditto. An exchange of top reads of the year perhaps? Hmmm, need to percolate on that one. Thanks for the suggestion.
    Happy Christmas.

  3. Hope your relative is OK. Makes you stop and think, doesn't it? Thanks for your comment. Abby

  4. Thank you Abby. I hope he's OK, he's under surveillance, a scary time, he's a family lynchpin. Enjoy your new space with your newest family member.
