The little dude was at his grandfather's for week one of Easter break, which kinda sucked for me but he had great fun and yesterday my mother in law rocked up to my doorstep in a campervan she'd just bought... Wouldnt be so weird if she didn't live in Ireland when we don't! lol
That turned out to be an amusing day... Today too probably.
I've been trying to not use the computer during the week as I'm on computers all day at work and I figured coming home and being on the laptop isn't the best use of my time.
Over the past few weeks, I've limited the laptop to the weekends (Fri-Sun) and tried to schedule all blog posts, return comments and make visits, and take care of home-related admin in that time freeing up the other evenings to just chill, watch tv, play with the kid, clean, read, go out and do stuff.
It seemed to work pretty well (well, except the blog commenting, I'm not sure that's working for me) but this week it all went wrong in that posts I'd written and thought I'd scheduled were just saved as draft and didn't go live... I published them yesterday anyway but it's annoying.
I think I'm going to have to check in daily - like I used to - to make sure this doesn't happen and to comment a little everyday (I think I prefer that) but I really don't want to get sucked into the black hole that is the laptop and the internet every single day. All my time just evaporates whenever I go near it! 😖
This was a KU recommendation that had the interesting quirk of allowing me to access both the Kindle and audio versions so I can read and listen (never gonna happen) or chop and change. In the end I listened to about 60% in the car and finished off reading it at home later in the evening.
(No hardship. The narrator was a bit blah.)
It was pretty good so I returned it and borrowed book two.
I got both a the kindle and audio versions with this one too!
I'm liking this new quirk that's appeared with some KU files... Is it like it in other countries? Borrow the kindle and get the audible too? I've never been able to borrow audible files before and with these, it just appears in the audible app same way the kindle file does in the kindle app/on the kindle!
I took part in the blitz for this earlier in the week and I'm looking forward to reading it.
I'm in a bit of a slow reading phase/slump so I want something different to shake me out of it!
This one is actually from last week but I forgot to include it...
OMG! I can't believe I got approved for this one! I love Alex and Angela so freaking much and can't wait to see how this series wraps up!
This is a rockstar series that I adore and I'm excited to finally find out wtf Roxy and Cole's deal is!

Binge watched S1 of The Umbrella Academy. It was weird... I don't think I understand half of it, but I liked it. It was funny af.
