Our Lives This Week

In Asti’s Life…

From beginning to end, this week was an absolute blur. Dave and I went and saw Queen + Adam Lambert on Sunday (I had bought myself tickets for the concert a couple of months ago as my “Going Away” present to myself)[1], stayed in the Greenwich area for a couple of days to celebrate our three-year anniversary [2], and then headed over to Kingston for my graduation [3]. On top of that, Dave’s mom also had surgery on Wednesday, which went well but means that we have extra company in the house all week and are expected to take care of her when we can.

It’s just chaos, I tell you, chaos! How am I supposed to write posts and respond to comments and take book pictures and do all the things when I’m too busy running out and about around London and helping out Dave’s family? Well, I can’t. So apologies for those who have commented on some of my recent posts but have not yet received a response. This is an unnaturally busy time of year for me and my focus is more on enjoying my last week in the UK and my last month with Dave (and then recording it all on my personal blog) than doing book bloggy stuff. I hate admitting such things, but it’s true, and I know most of you are sweet enough to understand. <3
