This is is Meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and here are the rules.

It is your chance to re-cap your bookish week, what did your review last week, any new purchases, what will be coming up in your blog next week or generally anything you feel you would like to share with the blogging community.

So, What did I do last week?

So, this was my week off. The weather was actually beautiful here - sorry, I know some of you are still suffering with snow etc, but we actually had a beautiful spring week here in SE England. I managed to clear out my garden  ready for spring and this is how it looks like now: 

I also managed to do some work on the blog - it was so great to have the time for it! On my first day I sat down and put a 'Follow Me on FB / Twitter / GR' widget together. I'm not a very patient person and if the Html doesn't work the way I want it … lets just say I get easily frustrated and don't have a lot of patience. Funny how I don't have problems with my patience when browsing blogs etc. It took me about 3 hours (with various online tutorials) and I did manage it at the end to put a working widget together. Though the buttons are now underneath eaach other instead of side by side. Oh well, you can't have everything! But I just couldn't go on any further and really didn't want to mess it up again. I did that in the morning I was supposed to be be repairing the roof of my garden shed. Yes, I do have my priorities right.
