Truth be told I’m in somewhat of a panic as I look forward to July. Knowing that the children finish this coming month for the summer and the reduction in time I will have for completing work throughout the day. I foresee some early mornings and late nights happening in order to get everything done.
Oh what a month, I feel as though I have bee here, there and everywhere, yet not managing to complete anything or make an impact on anything. Many plans going out of the window this month due to the weather and Roo’s injury at school. Although I did finally get to see the beautiful beach huts at Wells Next The Sea up close today – so that makes up for all the other meh moments the month has thrown at me.
As May approached I had a grand plan to clear off my ARC (Advance Reader Copy) reading lists on NetGalley and BookSprout. However, as the month began I was finishing off some mafia romance books and got sucked into reading more on a similar theme. The suggestions that pop up as you finish a book on my Kindle Paperwhite swaying my willpower and wanting me to read another dark mafia romance.
Looking forward to the sixth month of the year I am reminded just how quickly the days, weeks and months are passing me by. As life in lockdown eases and life begins to pick up speed I’m conscious that I need to set monthly goals to help me maintain focus and on track. Hoping that I’ll be able to tick off some much-needed tasks from my to-do list.
Time to wave a fond farewell to Spring and hopefully the worst of the wet weather to allow us to have a nice summer (not too hot or I’ll be obviously complaining about that). Although the weather has been surprisingly wet for May it has allowed us to tick a few things off our to-do list at home.
You’ll notice somewhat of a theme to this month’s books. Nothing I did intentionally, I just managed to fall down a dark mafia romance hole. After downloading a couple of books via my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I found myself craving more of the dark, suspense-filled drama that comes with a happy ever after.
Just when I didn’t think that I could add any more to my plate, I started my new role within the NHS this month. Whilst keeping on my temporary contract at the supermarket plus the upkeep of my blogs, social media etc.
There is a large part of my personality that prefers the busy, hectic days. The days where I’m not clock watching hoping that the clock hands would move a little quicker. Rather hoping that they would slow down a little to allow me to complete more things each day.
With Spring just around the corner, this month I thought I would do a little spring cleaning when it came to my reading lists. With a few books still there waiting patiently for me to download and enjoy. So I’ve been making an effort to put different lists together and cross at least one from each list across the month.
There should be a relatively big change happening in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household in April. After being made redundant from the NHS back in 2016, I am making a return. Surprisingly to my former Trust so it will be interesting to see if things have changed over the years. With this milestone on the horizon, it’s even more important that I knuckle down and focus on my monthly goals.
