    Life update – mini hiatus

    Good afternoon bookworms This is just a very small post to say that … well, I’m tired! I had all of these grand plans to start 2020 off with a bang, but between the crazy insane hot weather here, the threat of bushfires, and the smoke, I’m feeling a bit stressed at the moment. On top if all of this, I didn’t have the break I normally take over Christmas/New Year’s from work – it’s coming later this month – and we also had my brother’s wedding… outside… on my…

    You know when you take on too much…

    Good morning bookworms! You know that feeling you get when you’re SO EXCITED for everything, and so you sign up to it all, and then about a third of the way through whatever time period you start to realise that you’ve overloaded yourself and then panic and anxiety start to set in, and then you start to spiral and you end up in a weird mental trance state where nothing makes you feel anything, but everything is too hard and you just cry a lot and cut yourself off from…

    The Birthday book tag

    Good afternoon bookworms! No WWW Wednesday today because nothing has changed since last week!! However, it is my birthday today!! (For those of you on the other side of the planet, by ‘today’, I mean 19 June.) And to celebrate turning the ripe old age of 36 (yup, I can’t believe I’m admitting it either), I am doing this tag that I have seen floating around recently. There’s also an update from our move (and my new LIBRARY) below if you want to see!! BIRTHDAY CAKE – A book with…

    Mini slump…

    Hi friends and book worms (although I guess you’re all one and the same at the moment) I’m having a mini slump. I won’t say a ‘reading slump’ because I haven’t been posting on instagram or blogging much either. I’ve even taken a few days off Discord *gasp*. I’ve had some change recently and I thought everything would magically fall into place, but apparently that’s not a real thing. I also think I might have been pushing myself a bit too hard. I started the year with a bang, but…

    Mini life update 2018

    Hi guys! I hope you had a nice Christmas, and best wishes for the coming New Year! I’ve decided to postpone the remainder of my posts I had planned for the last week of the year. The reason behind this is that we didn’t have a great Christmas. We were away visiting family from the 22nd, and on Christmas Eve our house was broken into and burgled. The thieves stole about $20,000 (AUD) worth of our stuff, including my husband’s motorbike, our new TV, all the gaming consoles (and games),…
