Hello all. How is everyone?
This week has been a little bit of a quiet one for me. It’s mostly been consisting of night shifts which has meant that I have been mostly trying to sleep during the day. That sounds amazing when you’ve not got people ringing the doorbell and buses thumping by. Oh, and a cat craving attention. Even when I close the door, we will meow until I have opened it.
It’s that law of when you need to sleep, you can’t and when you get to work, all you want to do is fall sleep. Then when you get to sleep, you wake up and clock watch. My head will remind me of things before I sleep – embarrassing moments in my life (it likes reminding me of those.) My to-do list, that I need a drink of water. It will helpfully wait until I have almost dropped off. Does this happen to anyone else?
I have been managing t0 get a lot of reading done this week which is great. I have read some great books this month too; Who’s That Girl by Mhairi Macfarlane, If I Ever Fall by SD Robertson and The Sixth Window by Rachel Abbott (reviews and blog tours coming soon.)
I love it when I get lost in books. I had gone through a couple of months where I didn’t read as much as normal. I don’t know what happens. I just struggle to stay with books. It’s not the fault of the books. It’s like I get a little restless. I think that is why the Goodreads Challenge for 2016 almost didn’t get completed. I ran out of steam in the last few weeks. However, since the beginning of the year, I have a renewed love for reading.
Reading has always been an important thing for me and I couldn’t imagine completely being without books.
Laura the bookworm. That’s me.
Until next week writing people.
