I do hope you are having a great weekend. I wish to invite anyone to join in the Sunday Night Chit Chat session. I really look forward to hearing what people have been up to each week.
Linking up to Carla http://halfdozendaily.typepad.com/my-half-dozen-daily/
for Sunday Night Chit Chat
It's time to chat!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I've just finished The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I heard about this book a couple of years ago and wanted to read it ever since. Of course the film was Oscar nominated.
It is a fantastic read and shocking to think it relates to a time only 50 years ago! It helped improve my terrible knowledge of American History. There is a strong story line and great characterisation, which I love.
I would highly recommend it and I give it 9 out of 10.
Now I'm reading another recommendation: COASTLINERS BY JOANNE HARRIS. Joanne is a British writer, author of Chocolat (you may have seen the film with the delicious Johnny Depp in it?)
On the tiny Breton island of Le Devin in France, life has remained almost unchanged for over a hundred years. For generations, two rival communities, the wealthy La Houssiniere and the improvished village of Les Salants, have fought for control of the islands only beach.
When Mado, a spirited local girl, returns to Les Salants after a ten-year absence, she finds her home threatened, both by the tides and machinations of a local entrepreneur. Worse the community is suffering from an incurable loss of hope.
Mado is not so easily discouraged. Dogged by prejudice from the superstitious villagers, she is forced to enlist the help of Flynn, an attractive drifter.

We've been to my parents for Sunday lunch so we've had a day off from cooking.
This weekend we've been menu planning for March.
As it's warmer our neighbours' hens are laying again so we are enjoying cooking with the beautiful eggs. I'm looking forward to having a boiled egg each evening for my tea!
LOOKING FORWARD TO:
My niece has a day off school on Tuesday so she's coming in to help.
Mothers Day with my Mum!
Our anniversary break.
