real world took over most of my attention! In March, my parents came to visit for two weeks. Great fun, since we don't see each other that often. At about the same time we sold our flat in Mallorca, which generated a lot of preparations. For Easter we went there to finalise the signing and moving out of the flat. It was sad in a way, but we will come back to Mallorca. It is a lovely place!
Our plan was to buy another flat in Sweden. I knew already where and had seen the flat in a viewing some years ago. We settled down to wait for the relevant flat to come on the market, expecting to wait even a year or two. You can imagine the surprise when it came on the market this April! We went to Sweden for a day to have a look. I already knew I loved the flat, having seen it before, but the good thing was that my mister also loved it! We gave an offer and got it.
So you see I have been busy with contracts (boring but necessary) and all the administration around buying and selling. I have hardly had time, or could concentrate, to read, and only finished a few books. Now when everything is 'up and running' I will have time to concentrate on my blog again!

I am presently reading a historical fiction by Lauren Willig The Secret History of the Pink Carnation which is about a history student obsessed with the Scarlet Pimpernell and his accomplices, and are looking into a still undisclosed spy from that time. This is one of the books I picked up from the book market!
