Hi all,

I know it’s been a while now, almost a month, but sometimes you just need a break from blogging and time to get back into the real world and all that.

I have been rather busy this past month, having started a weight loss scheme run by my local council I have been making use of the 12 week free gym pass it comes with and actually turning up at the gym. I even went after work yesterday and did a spin class today – maybe that’s why it decided to hail as I got out of the gym?! I have lost a tiny bit of weight, quite a lot more to go, but it’s a good start. 🙂

I have caught up with old friends, made some progress on blankets I am knitting and crocheting, started reading Daniel Deronda again (couldn’t get into either last year or the year before, which is quite rare for me to put a book down to one side once I’ve started it). I finished Game of Thrones up to season 4 so I just need to watch 5 and 6 now (payday on Thursday yay!).

Speaking of books, I saw this article on the BBC today.


Apparently almost half of people asked in a survey were too busy to read and 35% struggled to find a good book they wanted to read.

To which my reply is…don’t be so damn fussy! Some of the best books I have ever read are those I have either heard mixed reviews about or those where I have literally judged them by their cover. And it’s not school. It’s not university. You don’t have a set amount to read every night so there’s no excuse!

Now, it’s time to write up my gym planner and get sorted for tomorrow, pics of stuff to be posted tomorrow, I cant be bothered now…too tired from the gym lol!

    Congrats on the free membership and weight loss! Way to go. 🙂 One of my nieces is a teacher and she told me once that she doesn’t like to read and hadn’t ever read a book for pleasure! That just boggled my mind. What???!!! And she grew up watching me read. I felt so betrayed. LOL

    I haven’t picked up a book in a while! I have no idea why, I can’t even say it’s a time thing because I have time to plop in front of Netflix for a few hours! I love reading! The weather is getting nicer and I always loved sitting outside with the sun on my face, a nice iced tea and a book! I know what I’m doing this week – as soon as this rainy spell passes! Welcome back by the way!! 😀

      Sometimes it can be a strain after work to read especially if you’ve looked at a screen all day, other times I’m in the mood to read a whole library! But I know what you mean about sitting outside with a book…or knitting… I still need to get Netflix lol! :O

      Thanks! I did feel like the fatty trying to keep up with all the super fitties but I’m just glad I made it to the end…45 mins of pain, I was done after 20 mins :O
