Weekly Catch Up: 10.10.21

Here is my weekly post each Sunday to catch up from the week before.

I will be sharing what I have been up to, what I have read, am reading and what’s up next along with other weekly catch up news.

What I have been up to this week:

It’s been a really busy week and with heavy rain I had water coming into my dining room, so I have relocated my work from home desk to my daughters room. Everyone at work found that funny when we had our daily hangout meetings. I have a weekend to myself so I am relaxing and hoping to catch up with my reading.

Reading wise, I have completed two books this week. Until Friday I didn’t think I would be able to keep on top of my plan as I couldn’t stay awake in the evenings to read.

I’m attended the #AllAboutAvon showcase this week on 6th October, it was lovely hearing the authors talking about their books to be released next year. It was also great to hear them talking about other book related topics in the Q&A session. 😊

I also attended the Penguin Books showcase on 5th October, which was a very professional video and again some very great releases for 2022.

I hit the 100 posts milestone this week 😊

I can’t believe that a few months ago I would never have even thought this was possible. I am really proud of what I have achieved in the last 3 months and am thankful to everyone who has interacted with me and made this a really exciting new project. I am enjoying every minute and can’t imagine my life without this blog now.
