Hi! Sorry. Fancy a Reading Suggestion?

Hello, my dear blogging friends. I am awfully sorry for my totally unexpected four-week blogging absence. I have no particular excuse up my sleeve, just life as it is. Nothing special. Children finishing their school term, along with all their extra activities, idling away on hot summer afternoons (yes, we have plenty of summer to be had in our little part of the world - all you soaked British bloggers are more than welcome!), and to be completely honest, it takes me ages - literally - to download all those pretty photos from my camera, waiting to be blogged about. There's a camera full of lovely garden shots, outfit shots, crafting shots... you get the idea. I will hopefully get round to it in the next days :) 

In the meantime, let me share some of my current reading material (I must have told you already that there's always more than just one book next to my bed/kitchen table/picnic rug... 

First of all, a classic, Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. It's funny, though, I've read Pride & Prejudice at least a million times (feels like it, anyway), but I haven't read this one so far. Go Fanny Price!

Another classic, and oh what joy! I've read Three Men in a Boat several times but it's always so good to get back to them. And I'm totally looking forward to the sequel as well...

Last but not least (although admittedly the least interesting of the three), some statistics about Great Britain. I was told at one point that reading statistical data about a country for pleasure was utter madness but that's how mad I am, I can't help it (nor do I want to!).

Hope you're all having a lovely summer, despite the (non-) weather!

P.S.: I have been following all your blogs on a regular basis, even leaving an odd comment or two, just to let you know I'm still here...
