Apart from the cold and rain January has not been too bad for me, my health had its ups and downs but I have kept busy with my reading and writing even if I have been in bed.
I think my three main highs would be:

  1. My blog has been going for 5 years, with more readers every day from all the social media platforms it goes on.
  2. Reading 5 books and half way through the 6th one, a really good variety and well on track towards my yearly total.
  3. Receiving some glorious flowers, delicious chocolates and the cutest teddy from Prestige Flowers, any girl would love them.


New books, I have seen some books that sound really good this month so I hope I get round to reading them, so they have gone on my list.
The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler
The Tent, The Bucket and Me by Emma Kennedy
A Room with a View by E.M. Forster
Are Experienced? by William Sutcliffe
The funniest thing would be ending up with a huge bag of ginger when I only wanted one bit.
Shopping, I was very good as only bought make-up and I used my points in Boots, so all good on that score and kept to my budget.
We also celebrated Freddie’s 4th birthday, why can’t my grandchildren stop getting older lol.
I am looking forward to February, my aim is to increase the traffic to my blog, so please, all share my posts and comment as it is lovely to hear what you have to say.

  2. I’ve always enjoyed The Accidental Tourist and was so happy the movie remained true to the author’s writings. You’ll enjoy this quirky novel I’m sure. πŸ™‚

    I think it’s safer to stay in bed as then I don’t end up on floor having a little doze. At least we keep the doctors in work, that is when we eventually see one. The cats happy laying on the bed so all good. Take care xxxxx

    I’m sorry you’ve been having a few health hiccups this month Karen. We’re a right pair aren’t we. Let’s hope that’s it for the year now including the rather nasty fall I took tonight. Buddha wasn’t very peace loving as his glass head fell and bounced off my knee cap.(I’m OK though )
    It’s always a pleasure to tweet your posts and I hope your traffic increases to wht you want.
