First off it’s July! It’s crazy that we’ve passed the halfway point of the year, it also means that I’ve now been blogging for 6 months! Time flies!
I started my blog back on 1st January whilst feeling particularly sorry for myself, unfortunately it wasn’t self-inflicted as I’d spent the couple of days leading up to New Year’s feeling unwell so no alcohol at all was consumed! In the 6 months since:
- I’ve gained 130 followers – which I still think is crazy!
- Published 169 posts
- Had nearly 3,500 views and 1,500 visitors from over 55 countries
- I’ve read 49 books – Caught up on books I’ve been meaning to read for a while, read some wonderful new released by authors I love, and discovered some fabulous new ones!
- I’ve also connected with a load of wonderful fellow bloggers across social media – All my links are in the side bar >>> Feel free to add me and come and say hi!
It’s been a good week for me, work-wise I’m starting to feel more accepted by the rest of the team and been a bit more included in some of the work chat. Also it was payday! I went to have a look at some of the sales but looks like I missed the best of it, although I did pick up a pair of shoes – I tried on a few things I liked the look of in New Look unfortunately none of it looked as good on as it did on the hanger! I did however walk out of Waterstones on Princes Street with 6 new books, I then picked up another 2 in WHSmith Books on Friday. I’ve ordered a couple of Harry Potter bookmarks from Etsy so I’m looking forward to them arriving!
The Authors for Grenfell finished on Tuesday and it’s done incredibly well, I was gutted I fell asleep after work and was outbid at the last-minute so I missed out, but the wonderful book loving community did incredibly!

I’m looking forward to next week, I have a team night out with my old team on Friday that was planned before I moved over, we’ve going clay pigeon shooting, which should be interesting, then we’re going for dinner and cocktails. Also my Round-Robin will be starting, I’m just waiting on a couple of addresses and then I’ll be sending out the details, I’m really looking forward to sending out my book and receiving my first one!
