Thank you, Jennie!

Those of you with long memories will recall that last month, my wonderful friend Jennie gave me a £25 voucher for Amazon and I have spent the past four or so weeks agonising about what to spend it on.

Drum roll, please maestro, as I have finally made a decision!

If you’re interested, I have purchased:

  • Lords of the Bow and Bones of the Hills, the second and third books in Conn Iggulden’s Conqueror trilogy about Genghis Khan.
  • Troy: Fall of Kings, the final installment in David Gemmell’s trilogy about, funnily eough, the Trojan War.
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire, the first two books in Stieg Larsson’s The Millennium Trilogy.
  • Last, but by no means least … a set of dog claw clippers.

Thanks Jennie. I can’t wait to get stuck into them all, though I’m quite certain that the dogs will not be impressed with their share of the haul! xx

    When you’ve finished the larsson books, I’ll post you the final volume, if I can get it back from the person I’ve leant it to.

  2. Hurrah!! 😀

    Now that lot will keep you quiet for a while.


  4. Enjoy your books!

    Gavin would agree with your dogs…I have to sneak a claw clip in when he’s snuggled in the chair with me. Yeah I said A claw, you get one snipped and he’s off like a shot. I have to wait a day or two to get the next one…it’s a long, slow process doing his. Patty I can do all in one shot.

  5. Well, you certainly seemed to get your money’s worth! I hope you enjoy them all. Write a lovely inscription in the front of them all from me or something!

  6. Jon, here’s hoping!

    DM, I suspect that Snipe will be following Gavin’s example. She is, after all, a Wimp!

    Jen, given the distinct difference between your handwriting and mine, why don’t we leave that til you come down?! 😆

    A good haul of books, although it takes me ages to get through one these days. I’m still on track with the claw clipping – one claw a day, followed by a biscuit (of course!), and I spent a couple of weeks getting Jasper used to having his feet held firmly and having the clippers touching the nails. It’s a long process, but I haven’t hurt him yet thank goodness!

  8. Who is the biscuit for? You or Jasper?!
