I have lots to tell you about.

I hope I voted correctly. Just ticked the box and sent. As always there's so much happening on your blog, it makes me happily dizzy. I'm going to have to come back and check it out further. So much to do...
It looks like your vote registered :-)
I have The 19th Wife sitting in my TBR pile, just waiting to be read.
I love Agatha Christie so I'm off to check out the carnival. Thanks for the info!
Interesting Sunday Review. Its been a while since I have done any Sunday Salons myself, I seem to not have the time these days to do all the blogging I would like!
What can you do if you visit my blog?
I came to tell you I had awarded your blog. Please pick up your award in my place.
I voted in your poll! :) That's a lot of postings in one week-I'm impresed!
Thanks for visiting folks.
I probably post far too often Eva. Can't help myself it seems.
my Sunday Salon is a bit formulaic Louise- it is really just a summary of what I have been doing in the week
Thanks for the award Dorte
Scrap Girl, it is so long since I touched the 19th wife I may have to start again! I'm about half way through.
Hope you enjoy the Agatha Christie Carnival Samantha
