Now July has hit, I’m deciding no more excuses. I’ve got to get the set amount of work done that I target myself each day and I’ve got to make it to the gym when I say I am going to go.
I have absolutely no idea how much pep-talking myself is going to help, but it has to be better than not having the motivation to do anything. I’ve always been motivated, but have just been drowning under trying to do too much and the end result being that I’m not achieving anything.
I’m currently having an odd-jobs and bits and pieces afternoon. Nothing that takes long, but all jobs that I want to get done. If I make Sunday a catch-up day on those sorts of jobs, it will free up time during the week.
That being said, I’m babysitting later so am desperately trying to get as many done as possible before heading out!
This week hasn’t just been about break-throughs (although I do have my first gym class on Monday – eep! Wish me luck!). Between reviewing books, I have been revisiting Harry Potter this year. I finished the final book last night.
All I can say is that I had forgotten just how good these books are. And, true to form, I cried in the last one. Only once, mind you, but it still hit me hard. It wasn’t just the nostalgia of revisiting these books. I had forgotten, or never quite realised, how genuinely good they are. This was my first time of reading them as an adult and I think I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed them!
I watched the first two films earlier on in the year but wanted to stay ahead with the books. Now, however, I can have a bit of a marathon and watch the rest of them. I’m not sure how many times I’ve seen the later films, so it could make for some entertaining watching.
But while I’m having fun rewatching Harry Potter, you can have fun catching up on any blog posts you might have missed! Sounds good to me!
Despite believing I was short of a review this week, I managed to pull one out of the bag! It was mainly because I went to uni, which gave me a nice long train journey to get some reading done. So rather than only two posts, here are this week’s three blog posts:
- Monday: Book Review: They are Trying to Break your Heart by David Savill
- Wednesday: The Book Sacrifice Tag
- Friday: Book Review: The Song-Sayer’s Lament by David Ebsworth
I should be able to get the normal types of posts done for the next couple of weeks – managing to see some of the films that I wanted, for a change. I’m just hoping that I have plenty of reading time.
But here is what is scheduled for the upcoming week:
- Monday: Book Review: Blood Fiend’s Bane by William Stacey
- Wednesday: Up and Coming: July
- Friday: Film Review: Doctor Strange
- Saturday: Book Review: Blood Bank by Zoe Markham
Even an extra review for a blog tour thrown in there!
How about you? What do you have planned?
