Hi guys! Sorry it’s been a while. There are a few reasons I haven’t really been active in the blogging community recently but I’m hoping things will be back on an even keel soon. I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you, and I miss you!
So where have I been? Well first of all, my new commute is hard work and I haven’t really adjusted to it yet. Add to this that most evenings I visit my family, and by the time I get home it’s too late to switch my laptop on and still get to bed early enough. I don’t have much time to check Twitter either, which is killing me to be honest! Hopefully now I’m almost two months in to the job I’ll finally adjust.
Secondly, about a month ago, I ended up with conjunctivitis that lasted for THREE weeks. I was just about making it through work to be honest!
Thirdly, my mental health has not been good this month. It’s not something I ever really talk about, because I generally don’t suffer too much. But October has been pretty relentless. I know why it’s been kicking my arse, but that doesn’t really help much, does it? When I feel like this though, I do find it difficult to do anything, even read, though that’s what I tend to default to. Harry Potter has managed to keep me company, but blogging just wasn’t going to happen. I’ve felt much better this week though, and I think that black cloud is lifting. Fingers crossed this lasts!
So I’m hoping that next week will see me back here properly. I’ll never be a person who blogs every day, but more than once a month if I’m lucky would be nice.
I’m getting off to a good start with a fantastic guest post from Maria Lewis tomorrow, as part of the It Came From The Deep blog tour, so please do come and check it out. Maria Lewis is the author of the Who’s Afraid series, but this is her YA debut and features mermen. Who could resist?!
As I’ve been out of the loop for a month, please do let me know in the comments if I’ve missed anything, or any books you’re looking forward to this month!
