Dear regular Bloggers... I aten't dead

Just a quickie to say hi and I'm alive and well.
(ALTHOUGH I did BLOG this morning)

My paper "developing professional practice" is going well.
One more week of class and then a bit more time to finish off the main assignment and I'm free.

I have been lurking on my regular blogs but haven't had much time to leave comments
I still love you all and read and enjoy your writing.

I'm also pleased because I found out I'm going to go to the Liaison librarian workshop in April down in lovely Pay of Plenty. I'm hopefully giving a talk about how cool LibGuides is so YAY me!

I'm looking forward to joining in on penny's reading roundup thingy. I'm off to buy some of these books tomorrow. Although I'm a librarian I'm the WORST library user. I end up HATING the fact I can't keep and share a good book!

It Starts TOMORROW!!!I've read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and have lent my copy to Penny but since I read slowly I might start early (Once the course is over naturally)

April: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto / Michael Pollan
May: The 19th Wife / David Ebershoff

This studying/Mum business is hard! Especially when your son decides not to nap.
Luke has to work today :-( but hopefully tonight we're going to see the fireworks for the end of Chinese New Year.

I'm not a good library user either -- because I'm busy developing my own library at home. Nothing like owning your books, I reckon. But now what you librarians want to hear, I think! lol1

Hope your talk goes well -- I'm sure you'll be a star.

Re your books -- I'm currently reading Love in the time of cholera and enjoying it. I've read a bit of Maya Angelou's poetry and have thought she was great.
