Baby & Book

16.Make Jo special baby gift..IN PROGRESS
Don't want to say much more at this stage as it's a surprise. Baby due in about 3 weeks I think so hopefully will have it finished by then and post a pic thereafter.

20.Read & list 50 books.... IN PROGRESS 6/50
I'm doing not too badly with my reading progress and have another book to list. This was a gift from a friend sent all the way from America. Thanks, Kim. Humourously titled 'There's A (Slight) Chance I Might Be Going To Hell' this is the first offering by U.S author Laurie Notaro. It is indeed a comical read about one womans quest to make friends in the odd little town in which she has just moved. After a series of false starts which almost finds her banished from the town Maye, the central character uncovers what may be the last chance to connect with her neighbours. The kooky town holds a deadly serious annual Sewer Pipe Queen Pageant open to contenders of all ages and genders. With a deranged former beauty queen as her mentor Maye competes then accidently on purpose goes on uncover a sinister mystery that has haunted the town for decades. A great tale of small town peculiairity and dark secrets.
