Weekend Plans

It's Bank Holiday weekend - Yayyy! :-P

First off, my review for the Wicked: Witch & Curse series is now up at The Book Bag. For those of you who don't know, here's the premise:

Holly Cathers' world shatters when her parents are killed in a terrible accident. Wrenched from her home in San Francisco, she is sent to Seattle to live with her relatives, Aunt Marie-Claire and her twin cousins, Amanda and Nicole.

But as Holly struggles to settle into her new home, her sorrow and grief soon gives way to bewilderment at the strange incidents going on around her. Such as how any wish Holly whispers to her cat seems to come true. Or the way a friend is injured after a freak accident by a vicious falcon. And then there's her undeniable, magnetic attraction to a boy she barely knows . . .

Holly and her cousins, Amanda and Nicole, are about to be drawn into a family feud spanning generations. And as they uncover a dark legacy of witches, secrets, and alliances, where ancient magic yields dangerous results, the girls learn of a shared destiny that is beyond their wildest imaginations . . .

My full review is right here.

So, does anyone have any plans for the weekend? My mother and I are off to see The Sound of Music stage production tonight. It's the West End production that has been traveling around the UK starring none other than Connie Fisher (How do you solve a problem like Maria?). We have front row tickets and I really can't wait. :-D

Tomorrow I'm attending the evening reception of one of my oldest friend's wedding. Thank God I've convinced my man to come along - I don't think I could do it alone. It's been a while since I saw them all and I'm a little nervous.

Then, I have to ask you guys for a favour for Tuesday. I had a job interview last week - Apparently I made an impression and stood out so now I've got a second stage interview this Tuesday. Apparently it's very hard-going and really tests your abilities. I'd really love it if you guys could cross your fingers for me. I've been unemployed for over six months and I don't think I can last any longer.

Anyway, TTFN.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Edit: I also have to add a link to an article I just read that my man posted on Facebook. Right here.

Some reader of the Daily Mail wrote a letter complaining that the packaging on the Maoam sweets look 'pornographic.' What the hell??? He said his children were very 'sensitive' and that he was glad he got to the advert before they did.

Right ...

Over sweet wrappers?


Yeah, you should really watch out for those 'inter-fruit' relations. They're dangerous and bad news.

Honestly, this is why I don't read the Daily Mail - the readers are idiots. :P

I will certainly be saying a prayer and crossing my fingers for you for the job. I have a dear friend dealing with unemployment now and I have seen first hand just how not-fun that can be.
