Another busy month in September, and the time I was hoping to find just didn’t materialise. Still lots to do in the house, and I’m still not fully recovered after my injury. Starting to feel somewhat guilty for my lack of blogging and reviewing, but there really isn’t much I can do about it quite yet… Continue reading “September 2017”
July and August have been, quite simply, batcrap crazy. Life stuff has meant that I’ve not done anything on the blogging and reviewing front, and not much of reading either.
I was on track to end July well, with a lot of stuff done and planned, but I was then involved in a car accident where I got rear-ended. From there life just turned the dial up to 11 and there’s been no let-up since. There’s the obvious post-accident issues I’ve had to deal with, and the injury I sustained has made life even more difficult at a time when I needed a break. But there we go.
Another reason for the silence is a house move. We bought our first home together, completing at the very end of July. With help from friends we got moved in at the start of August and then proceeded to re-decorate some rooms (again, thanks to family and friends – I’ve been pretty useless!) in time for my wife’s surgery and recovery. Now there’s a small downtime to let her recuperate before the decorators are in again to finish off what was started.

The cruise was great and we visited some amazing places (Oporto, Barcelona, Villefrance/Monaco, Rome, Naples/Pompeii, Cartagena, Gibraltar), but it was also quite tiring and non-stop on the port days. I did manage to get a fair amount of reading done, and the balcony view (see featured image) was an amazing place to relax. Continue reading “June 2017”
(I should have posted this at the start of the month, but got caught up in sorting the holiday. Oops!).
Another busy month in May, and with the weather getting nicer I’m managing to get out for more walks, which in turn means I’m getting to listen to some more audiobooks. It also means I’m not staying in watching as many movies/TV shows or playing as many games… Continue reading “May 2017”
