Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page where readers get to share the books that came into their house last week.

I bought and received the following book from The Book Depository after reading so much rave reviews about it:

1) How to Be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway (I love reading about other cultures and don't you think the cover is lovely?)

What books came into your house last week?



I mentioned this on Facebook last Friday but I want to share this good news here again: My daughter has gotten a place at the primary school after the balloting!

I know this may sound silly but believe me I have never felt so nervous (and excited) just waiting and praying our number to be called! (I don't recall being that tense waiting at a dentist office but that's another matter...) And the best thing is, a few of my daughter's friends (they are all in the same kindergarten class) got into the same school too so at least she has got company! Well, I want to thank all my friends who have sent your well wishes to me! I really appreciate them all!

    Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your comments! Now I can don't think of the school stuff and let myself relax a bit, haha.

    Iliana - The class will begin in January next year.

    I look forward to reading that Housewife book as I've read nothing but rave reviews about it. :)
