Random Thoughts: My MIAness

I have been away for quite awhile now. So NOT what I'm supposed to be doing according to my blog

Here's what happened. I was working part-time the past few months and had just "retired" at the beginning of this month, since it's still March. Then just days after, that weekend, a family member was struck with a mini "tragedy", an operation! And as I am the only one who's free, I was tasked with taking care of the patient. First it was daily hospital visits, and now at home, I take care of the house AND the patient. I haven't even been out of the house in almost a month! We're under house arrest.

Anyway, that hasn't left me with time to blog. But what I have been doing, and thankfully have had time to do, is to read, read, and read! And read I have! And so I will be (finally) publishing some book reviews in April. Hopefully to start up my blog again. There will be a few giveaways to come too! So do look forward to them.

I am also doing some blog design updates so if you see anything different, it's meant to be like that. I hope nothing gets disrupted in the process.


Cheers for now!

Random Thoughts: January 2012 RAK Wrap Up

It's now March. Where has all the time flown! I know this is supposed to be my January Wrap-Up which is supposed to be done at the end of that month but boy has life been hitting me hard. And so I hope no one will penalize me for this lateness. For that I am REALLY sorry.

January was my birth month and I received (or am going to receive), 2 lovely presents!

First one I received was from Emmelyn from Singapore
She sent me some lovely bookmarks she made herself PLUS some skincare goodies! 
Sorry for lack of piccie, told you life has been hard. 
I will do my best to put one up soon! 
She sells some of her other wares at her blog, Velvet Mess


In return I sent Emmelyn a book from her wishlist.





That's all I have for this post. Will do my best to keep participating in RAK every month I can. I really do love it, sharing the book love with people from around the world. I hope you all do too!
