Bout of Books 24: Day 5

You guys I’m tired. It’s supposed to be the end of the week, but I don’t have that Thank God It’s Friday feeling because my next day off is actually next Thursday. I know it’s my own fault, shift swaps and what not, but its leaving me with no energy left to read. That’s it, enough moaning, onwards and upwards now as I have had my mini rant. We have 3 days left of this readathon, let’s see how much we can all read.

Bout of Books 24: Day 3

Today is a much needed and hugely appreciated day off from work, and even though there is lots to do around the house, I think I am going to try and have a bit of a relaxing day, because once today has gone, I don’t have another day off until next Thursday. I am really enjoying the actual reading in Bout of Books 24. I have been so busy with work that I must confess that I haven’t done as much chatting and socialising with you all yet, but I am loving what I am reading and I really enjoyed the sprinting last night. I am thinking about doing some more this afternoon, would you be up for that?

Bookish Savings | 2019

Hello folks, how are you finding the January blues? I always think that January feels like the longest month of the year, and as much as I really don’t want to wish the time away, I am always pleased to see the back of it. I think we all suffer from either actual or perceived money problems in January. Christmas costs a lot, let’s be real, so January is all about saving the pennies and thinking about ways to put money away for the year ahead. Last year I decided to have a bookish savings jar that would help me save some extra money for my trip to Disney at the end of October. It worked a treat and I ended up having around £200 saved which was enough to make the effort worth it and for me to have a little extra pocket money to spend on holiday.
