This week has revolved around my first week of training at the fabulous Palmerston North City Library, and getting ready for my eldest son's 10th birthday - very exciting to be getting to double figures.
I love working at the City Library again - Come visit if you are in town.
The library also has wonderful events - highlight of my week was attending a talk by Peta Mathias about her newest book
She was as fabulous in person as she is in her TV programs - she was witty, enthusiastic, honest and articulate, and I am now 21st in the queue for her book at the library - thankfully they have more than 1 copy!
I have continued to stitch the charity quilt, and I have done a few more pages for my paper/stitch book.
