March Wrap Up

It’s been a couple of months since my last wrap up post and, predictably, all my good blogging resolutions have gone out the window.

Truth is, at the moment I just don’t have the time or inclination to blog. When I do have some spare time, I really don’t want to be back at my laptop. It’s sad that I don’t feel the same way I used to about it, but that’s how things go, I guess.

I’ve recently been promoted and am going back to working full time. Between that and my own writing and looking after Little Moore (who is becoming quite a handful!) I am struggling to find time to read, let alone blog.

With that said, I’m not going to promise to do better next month. I’ll put out a few reviews for books I’ve been sent, but I’m not going to promise to post regularly. Sorry!

For now, I’ll do a double wrap up post for February and March, just so I can share all the wonderful books I’ve read.

What I Read 

I’ve lowered my Goodreads challenge from 100 books to 80, just to be a bit more realistic. I might get rid of it completely – I feel it’s been pressuring me to read as fast as I can and that’s stopping me enjoying what I’m reading.

What I Wrote:

Over the last two months, I have finished my WIP (finally!) I’ve also written a short story for a competition (fingers crossed but not holding my breath) and also started throwing a few ideas around for a new novel.

What I Did

As I mentioned above, I have a new job, which I’m really pleased about. There’s been a lot of changes going on at work and I’m excited for some new challenges ahead (even if it means doing a full working week again!) The bonus side of this is that Nathan is reducing his hours so now we’ll have some time off together, which will be great.

What Little Moore Did

Little Moore is now two and is a right bossy so-and-so! He loves telling me what to do. He had a great time at the Sea Life Centre for his birthday and got far too many toys (mostly cars, he’s obsessed with them!) We also enjoyed an Easter egg hunt with his cousin and the boys loved searching for painted eggs (and some chocolate ones too!)
