I think of this blog as my second home. My virtual home. Where friends come to visit.
Every home needs a little blitz from time to time. A little bit of a tidy up.
As Monday is my ‘down day’ in the School’s Out Schedule, I thought today would be a good opportunity to have that blitz.
‘Simply Being Mum’s Six Slow Cooked Soups’ e-book giveaway
First things first. Something that has been weighing heavy on my mind is the unfinished mini e-book that I’m giving away to all readers. As an unexperienced e-book writer, I didn’t really know what it entailed. I do a little more so now. The launch has been delayed considerably (did I originally say March, did I really?).
Top priority for me once the Kids are back at school will be to complete the book. I aim to have it done by the end of September without fail.
There’s still time to request a free-copy.
Once again this year I decided to do a spring sale. The total generated so far is £135. Which is still £465 below my £600 target. I do have stuff to sell, it’s just getting round to selling it that’s the issue. My second car-boot sale has been postponed numerous times due to weather stopping play. Have I mentioned we are having the wettest year I can remember in my 38? Yesterday several parts of the UK had flash floods and giant hailstones. If I wasn’t so level-headed I’d be suspecting some outer-space activity may be affecting our weather system. Hmm now there’s an idea, could there be a Planet X? 😉
I’m determined to meet and even exceed my self-imposed £600 target. Like I said, I have stuff to sell. Even my 4-year-old’s first bed which he has now outgrown. Time passes so quickly. As Gretchen Rubin says the days are long but the years are short.
There are still 5 boxes of yeast to post.
If you haven’t yet e-mailed with a delivery address to send it to, please could you get in touch? Many thanks!
As you can see they are on my desk waiting to go. Debbie yours will be in the post tomorrow!
This one’s a little kick to myself. The Kids still haven’t been signed up for the Summer Reading Challenge!
Having a blog makes you publically accountable and it’s very motivating. I do have a little confession. I decided to finish the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy that I’d downloaded onto my iPad a while back, even though it wasn’t on my reading list. So in theory I’ve read 2 books in 2 weeks (well skim-read actually). I’m moving onto The Host this week by Stephanie Meyer. The Kids and I started Harry Potter last night. I may be the only person remaining who has not read J.K Rowling’s masterpiece! The timing may be perfect as I am in much need of some well written prose 😉
How’s your Summer going? Nice and tidy, all on target or are there things weighing heavy on your mind. Do you need a bit of a blitz?
I now update most days on Facebook, why not head on over and join the conversation?
**Couldn’t leave today without sending my congratulations to Team GB. Way to go Guys!**
