Sunday Post #11

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalise it! Include as much as you want or as little. Check out the rules of the meme.

Somehow I feel as though my feet have hardly touched the ground this week.  I fitted in my usual activities and also made three library trips.  My son had overdue books which we returned, then a CD came in which needed collecting and today my daughter wanted to pop into the Central library whilst in town.  Hubby and I went to a poetry evening which was a book launch for two local poets who also read from their work.  We also got to see a string quartet playing in a pub rather like having them in your living room, photos can be viewed in the Saturday Snapshot link below.  Today, the teen and I went into the city, we had lunch and I sneaked off to see a short live performance featuring a baroque cello.  We then met up to visit the museum to see some interesting exhibitions.
