Where I have Been + In My Mailbox (#20)

Hey Everyone! :-)

I disappeared again for a few days but fear not, I will tell you all about my escapades, so sit down and get comfortable, a personal post is on its way ;-)

Sorry for the late posting but we went away for the weekend and I only got back late Sunday night and had a pretty busy day at work today. And if that wasn't enough the last 7 or so days were preetty busy. Wanna know why? Well because it was my birthday on August 20th (yep, I passed the big quarter of a century mark, and became 26 years old, thankfully I do not feel old - despite my childhood best friend's hysterics, who turned 26 a month ago - lol :-D), and spent all last week meeting with friends, going out for drinks and chats, going to the movies and of course collecting presents :-D

Furthermore my birthday is public holiday in Hungary (the equivalent of 4th of July in the US): it's a bank holiday, everything is closed, no work and fireworks at night, just for me! (kidding :-D well that's what my parents used to tell me when I was a kid). So I had a wonderful 3 day-long weekend, full of rest, doing nothing, sunbathing and reading, playing boardgames at night with my sisters and stuffing myself with the birthday cakes my sisters have baked. :-) 

I hope you had an equally wonderful weekend, and now let me show you all the great books which found their way into my mailbox last week :-)
