And I was on the train while it was crazy weather outside and I was thinking "thank goodness I didn't drive - poor Leonie!" I was hoping you and hubby were OK...

That's good to know Jane, especially as you don't usually read the genre!

721 I'll put up photos tomorrow and also unpack my case :) I'll be hitting the sack pretty early tonight ;)

Glad everyone else is home safely (we haven't heard from Leonie yet though??)

721 And I'm finally home! Fabulous day - thanks everyone! It always goes so incredibly fast... can't wait for the next one!

And with my train problems this morning - guess what! Comedy of errors for me! Stuck at Fassifern for 1/2 hour and when they finally told us why - one of the doors was stuck open and of course they couldn't allow it to move without the shut door. So finally (unfixed) they had a staff member stand in the doorway (and I was hoping they wouldn't fall out!) while we carried on to Cardiff and Broadmeadow. It terminated at Broadmeadow and went into a siding to be fixed while the train which was going on to Scone came back to Broadmeadow and picked up some of our passengers; people who needed to go into Hamilton and Civic had the buses come back from Hamilton to pick them up from Broadmeadow!!!

So of course, I'm quite happy to be home!!
721 Hopefully! That's good :)

Haha! Put it down as a DNF (did not finish) and choose another in its place :) And I'm sure it'll be much better!

No that wouldn't work as I get carsick and she and her hubby are driving down :) Already checked, thanks!

721 Good luck for March's organisation :) You might be able to read a couple for this month - it's the enjoyment of the book that's important :)

721 We've just discovered that there's been a lightning strike which has damaged signal equipment on my train line :( Now trying to find out if they "think" it'll be fixed in the morning, or if I should go for an alternative!

721 Fabulous Michael! You always have some great authors for your Writers Festival :)
721 Lovely :) Rain and thunder has stopped here now - and I hope the thunder doesn't come back! Our little dog will and does freak!

I always try to concentrate on the challenge books first in the month - then once it's done I have "free" time to read any others I want!
