It has been an odd month this one! I have now started to feel so drained with working from home and trying to find the motivation for it. When you read this I will have started my 3-week break from work. I would say holiday but our first family holiday abroad has been cancelled. Now before people get judgy, we booked this in January before the pandemic and obviously our health is way more important but still a bit crushing knowing that we now have nothing to look forward to in that respect, and man I need a break. However, Ryanair are not playing ball so its been stressful.
Like I say it’s been an odd month, but I FINALLY got to see my Mother! Funny how even though we talk every day I still missed her.
Mini-Me has now finished Year 1, god help me she is growing up too quickly and now she is on summer holidays until she grows, even more, to go into Year 2!! The horror of it.
The garden is getting more flowers and I love sitting outside and smelling the flowers. Although my nasturtiums have been eating away by the black flies 🙁 and the cats do think that it is a glorified litter tray.
Some flowers to bore you with…PLUS I didn’t plant some of this! Especially these big purple ones!
Next month (August) we find out where the boy will be posted for 3 years and we made the decision that Mini-me and I will not be moving with him, so going to be interesting.
It was the anniversary of my Dad’s passing, 11 years ago now, seems like yesterday he was here! Still hate how much he has missed
We will pass over the subject of the football and that disappointing end to the season.
I have been a rubbish blogger as I have not shared anyone’s posts for ages! I am sorry and normal service shall resume once I have had a break! I am wiped.
And I wrote about 3,000 words of my second book, on the back of a dream I had about Chris Evans. I have a playlist which is inspiring different scenes. Still need to finish book 1 which has kind of halted at 11,000 words so will need to go back to that. As Mini-me would say dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnnn
Ahem….sorry got slightly distracted here…….. if it hadn’t been for Knives Out I would have never have thought of him like this!!!!!
Not really much more to say so all things bookish now!
What Have I Read This Month?
A whopping 21 books, woah there! I surpised myself with that figure!!!!
What Have I Got This Month?
Yes, you are right 2 are NetGalley! One is a tour and one was direct from the author! Otherwise, I stayed away and I bought audiobooks for my takeover!
What Have I Posted This Month?
This will start again just haven’t had a chance to write up my reviews!
I am having a couple of weeks off now from blogging and work. My holiday has been cancelled so will just chill out at home – I need a holiday from this house! I do have some tour posts coming up and 3 more Takeovers in the works but not until the end of August/September, I need some sleep!
How was your July?
Until next time xxx
