Monthly recap

October Recap

This month seems to have gone by SO fast!  I haven’t been very present online, or doing much blogging, but I really loved co-hosting and taking part in Simsathon and it has absolutely helped with my reading – despite school being as manic as ever, I read pretty much twice as many pages in October as I did in September.  I’m on half-term right now so that helped me squeeze a little bit more reading in and has been good for both catching up on life admin (laundry, tidying etc) and recharging my batteries a little too. We’ve been living the ‘work hard, play hard’ motto pretty well this month I think, so I’ve been leaving work a little earlier, doing maybe 50 hours a week instead of 60 last month, but also I’ve been running, going to Karate, went to see The Joker, and have had a few board games evenings.  All in all a great month, if a little knackering!  I’m spending this afternoon planning out my November TBR, doing a little bit of blogging and bookstagramming so here’s to hoping for a few more blog posts in November.
