New Year

Is it too late to wish everyone a happy new year? I have been on a bit of a bloggy break during school hols :-) Normal blogging will resume in a couple of weeks, for now it's all about the beach, aquarium, picnics at the park, playgrounds and fun, fun, fun!

Of course the new year has had a very sad and tragic start for many, with the floods in Queensland and Brazil. I don't usually watch the news much but have been watching the progress, what amazing people have been helping with the clean-up and of course praying for the souls of all the lives lost and keeping up hope for those not yet found.

Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, not being close enough to physically assist with the aftermath there are many other ways of helping, through donations of clothing, toys and of course much needed cash.

Hugs to you all, hope your 2011 is a happy and safe one.

Oh, it's so strange to think that people elsewhere in the world are enjoying their summer while we're buried in snow at -20C!

Oh how I envy you!

Hey, Happy new year.
I couldn't email this response to you so ill post it here if that's cool...
About the comment you left on the book depository. That's just wrong... it so annoying! I had a similar experience, I followed a link to them from a UK blog and the prices were cheaper, I naturally assumed they had just gone down again so I signed in to purchase from my wish list but it didn't exist??? Weird... I then opened a new window and entered the book depository site through the saved page I usually use to compare them and found that they were two completely different sites??? some titles weren't even available and there was at times a $10 -$15 difference (those prices have since increased too). Now I have two wish list's on two different sites but the account and all the details are exactly the same? more weird, needless to say ive been using the other link mostly but when I do my, purchases take much longer? weird again.
It does feel like were being ripped off just because they can.
I think you are right about the postage... Im very not happy too.
