Adventure Week 1 - Orinignally Posted 05/07/14

So, We've been in our cosy new home for a week today. It's been fab! Maybe I still feel like I'm in holiday mode, I dunno. But I love it! The sun streams in the windows all day long, I walk out and step onto lovely grass, it's quite peaceful (except for today as the people whose yard we're in are having a big party today so there's loud music and lots of kids!) and I love being so close to my Dad if he needs anything.

This week has been so free and easy! I bought a watermelon that must have weighed 12lbs and re-enacted the "I carried a watermelon" scene from Dirty Dancing. Sadly there was no lake dancing afterwards. I read 2 books and reviewed them both (The Life You Left by Carmel Harrington and Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige). I've started 2 new books (You Had Me At Merlot by Lisa Dickenson and Disraeli Avenue by Caroline Smailes).

I always read 2 books at a time, one on kindle and one proper book, just in case you wondered. I have done a little bit of ebay work and I have spent lots of time with my lovely man. We have chilled out. Like properly chilled out, watching tv series (Sons of Anarchy) and chatting and just being together with nothing else to worry about. What a difference to 3 weeks ago!

There's also been a big change in ME. I'm relaxed. I'm learning to let go and just go with the flow. It's so nice to not have to plan everything. I'm still working on it, but I like the idea now! I've found my reading mojo, I want to write again. I'm walking around barefoot, which is how I was brought up. I'm wearing my hair down, long and curly and loose. That's a first. Even my friend Sarah (who's my hairdresser too) said it's never looked better, relaxed and controlled curls. I just feel great for the first time in ages.

On Wednesday, we bought a bigger caravan on ebay. When they got it back here, we all just stood around and went "bloody hell, it's big! That's not going in that yard!". Sadly, it was too big for the space we have available. So, we parked it on a friends caravan yard and listed it back on ebay. We now have a better idea of how big we actually need. NOT THAT BLOODY BIG! It's ok, it was an idea that didn't work out. Nothing lost, no problem.

 Move on and keep looking. For the time being, our cosy little caravan is perfectly fine SO, that's been our first week of our Big Adventure. Let's see what week 2 brings, eh? xx

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Character In A Series: DI Natalie Ward written by Carol Wyer

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Best Memoir: I have a tie here between Eat. Drink, Run by Bryony Gordon    AND 
Born In The Bed You Were Made by Brooklyn James

Children's/YA Book: We Are Young by Cat Clarke

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…

Blog Tour Stop with Review - No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley!

What They Say:
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
With the big day ap…
