The Sunday Post #29

I realise that my regular Sunday post is multiple hours late.

I may have slept in, not written the post in advance and completely forgotten.

But that’s life for you.

Nevertheless, I’m here typing away whilst the Mr has kindly gone to the shop so I can make some Tanya Burr cookies.

I’ll be honest, this week has been rather shit. I’ve been in a massive grump because of that time of month and it hasn’t been pleasant. But I’ve got on the week and surprisingly, it’s gone quite quick.

I’m looking forward to a 3 day working week. You’ll see why in next week’s post.

This Love by Dani Atkins


Published: 23rd March 2017
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 480


Sophie Winter lives in a self-imposed cocoon – she’s a single, 31-year-old translator who works from home in her one-bedroom flat. This isn’t really the life she dreamed of, but then Sophie stopped believing in dreams when she was a teenager and tragedy struck her family. So, to be safe, she keeps everyone at arm’s length. Sophie understands she has a problem, but recognising it and knowing how to fix it are two entirely different things. One night a serious fire breaks out in the flat below hers. Sophie is trapped in the burning building until a passer-by, Ben, sees her and rescues her.

How I Want My Blog To Be

I’m currently in a full time job which I love. The marketing team are lovely, I’ve settled in nicely and I get into the office at 8am every day so I can have the chance to read.

But my blog is suffering.

That’s a sentence I never thought I’d say.

I’ve been blogging since 2nd July 2012 and I’ve always had content, even when I was travelling but things have changed.

 The opportunities have stopped rolling in, my ideas have dried up and I’m finding myself comparing my blog to others.

Into The Water by Paula Hawkins


Published: 2nd May 2017
Publisher: Transworld
Pages: 368


In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help. Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind. But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped. And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool…

The Sunday Post #26

I have no blog motivation.

I have no content ideas, no tweets scheduled and honestly, juggling a blog with a full time job is a lot harder than I thought it’d be.

I thought I’d have the energy once I’m home from work, but all I want to do is see the Mr, eat good food and fall asleep at 9pm (which I have been doing).

There’s a lot going on behind the scenes and despite these Sunday post’s being created for the weekly highlights, they’ve become quite the “catch up with me” posts.

Perhaps I should write one of those?
