Weekly Catch Up: 31.10.21

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:

I have been off this week and my daughter has been in holiday clubs, so I have been able to spend a bit of time getting on top of my blog & reading. I also sorted out a new desk and chair in the spare room, so my new home office is a bit more out of the living space.

Reading wise, I have completed six books this week, including two short stories by Faith Blakely. I have been preparing my November TBR and am hoping ot also fit in some reads for Netgalley November.

Back to work this week, so we will see how much reading I will get done.

    1. I was in the dining room, but since I moved out of there I kind of want to keep the table clear, so thought I would try this. Especially as home working doesn’t look like it is going any time soon πŸ’•
