In an attempt to gain a semblance of order in my chaotic life, it’s time to write a Stories & Shout Out housekeeping post.
In real life October has been a month of family birthdays, HSC exams, hay fever and extra shifts at work.
Next weekend is the Cancer Council’s 7 Bridges Walk which I plan to do for the first time in it’s ten year history.
In blogger land October has been a month of reading thanks to Andi’s #15in31 challenge.
I’m a chronic multiple book reader.
Every now and again I need a prompt to simply finish all the half-read books cluttering up my life. With 11 days still to go, I can proudly say that I have just finished reading book no. 12, although I’m rather behind in writing the subsequent reviews.
Maybe November will be my Month in Review!!
I attempted to join in Dewey’s 24hr Readathon this weekend, but it clashed with my niece’s 5th birthday party. The time difference meant that I was able to join in reading for the first hour and the last hour as it coincided with my usual read-before-sleep routine.
I was able to finish Geraldine Brook’s The Secret Chord during this time – yay me!
I have also been working on Blog Ahead during October in an attempt to get organised for the Silly Season with some scheduled posts.
I currently have 6 scheduled posts for this blog and 3 scheduled posts on my Four Seasons blog.
Personally, November features our wedding anniversary and one family birthday. The trial season for next year’s soccer teams also starts in November….there go the weekends!
No wonder I feel tired!
But at least I now feel like I’ve got it all straight in my head.
How are your October plans panning out?
