Goals, Monthly recap

September Wrap-Up

This month I went back to full time at work, and my reading rate suffered for it, drastically! Last month was admittedly a great month for reading, and I ended up reading less than half as much this month.

Blogging-wise things are still more sporadic than I’d like, but I did about as well as last month which I’m okay with. It may be time to face up to the fact that posting six or seven days a week just isn’t practical for me right now – I’m now working six days a week, and somehow have to fit in visits to my other half since he’s back at uni, as well as squeezing in time for reading and relaxing!  At the minute I feel like a dieter who screws up on Monday and writes off the whole week: I don’t post as much as I’d like and then I get disheartened and post even less, etc etc. Maybe deciding to post less, say four times a week, would take some of the (self-imposed) pressure off. That way, if I can post more, great, but if I can’t, at least I won’t be depressed for missing a target by miles.

Favourite thing I did this month: Spent some time with my other half before he went back, having dates, relaxing together and generally enjoying our time off.
