. . . for now anyway. Seems that my contrary computer's modem is playing nice today so I can finally go online and do some studying. The downtime has given me a chance to catch up on some reading. I've dived back into my regency books, Stephanie Laurens only, and using this extra time have re-read some of my not-so-favourite titles - you know, just to see if time has made them any better. Guess what? It worked! I was never too fond of the last book in the Bastion Club series (Christian Allardyce, Marquess of Dearne's story) but found that having not read any regencies for over 6 months, I got into it. While it is by no means my favourite book in the series, I did enjoy it a lot more.
I'm still waiting - not so patiently now - for my Amazon UK parcel to arrive. I bought a copy of Jean Auel's Land of Painted Caves for mum, plus a copy of Treachery in Death by JD Robb. I know that I could reserve a copy of the book from the library, but I'm doggedly waiting for my copy to arrive. . . someday?
On the home front, the weather has turned rather chilly the last few nights. Not doona weather really, but you certainly need more than a light blanket on the bed. This gave me a case of 'spring cleaning', so I attacked my rooms, dug through the linen cupboard and washed my flanelette sheets (no laughing okay) so that they would be nice and fresh to sleep in. There's nothing nicer than snuggling down in a freshly made bed to sleep at night.
