Reading – 2018 Book Challenge

So I said to myself I need to read more, the only reading I seem to do is online or study related. So I set myself a challenge:

To go through the alphabet and choose a book starting with each letter of the alphabet and read it. So we are 5 months into the year and I still have not started this. So I have sat down today and drawn up a little table on the computer to start this goal.

So here it is;

Nice and simple?

I will start filling in the letters with pictures of front covers and will review the books that I feel stand out or I truly recommend and have something to say!!

With only 229 days left of the year I better hurry up. Wish me luck!!

We have been bestowed with a prince!!

Today flags are flying to celebrate a new prince.

Congratulations to Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William; The Duke of Cambridge – And of course to Prince George and Princess Charlotte!!

It is also exciting that Princess Charlotte, whose position in line to the throne will not change with the birth of her little brother; due to a change in the law, has made history.

“Kensington Palace Twitter Account”

I have not added any pictures of the new Prince as I feel it is not my right to share them, but if you browse the news websites and the Kensington Palace twitter account, then there are plenty of images there for you to see. The Prince is beautiful, you can see mam, dad, brother and sister in the young Prince. Beautiful children and a beautiful family.

We have yet to hear about the name that has been given to the new Prince, I wonder if Prince George had a different name, would this Prince be called George? He was born on St George’s Day after all? George, Charlotte and ……..

What name will be bestowed to the new prince?? I cannot wait to find out!!

Casualty – Crying over Glen

Series 32 : Episode 30 – If you have not seen this episode then click back now: SPOILER ALERT (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!)

Just when you think that Robyn will have a happy ending…. BOOM!! The plot thickens.

What got to me in this episode was the circumstances surrounding how Glen passed away, it reminded me of losing people in my life. I am a big believer when it comes to people having a choice in where they die, although I fully understand it is not always possible. I admire the BBC for how they portrayed Glens’ death; they made the room special, a little family together in the room in their pyjamas and dressing gowns. I cried inside and almost outside, but I do not like crying in front of people so managed to hold it back. I would have loved the chance to say goodbye to those I lost and be there for their last moments. It hurts me so much that I did not get that final ‘Goodbye’, this is why the episode meant so much to me.

I thank Owain Arthur (Glen Thomas) and Amanda Henderson (Robyn Miller) along with the BBC for the way the story was presented.

Books 📚📗📙📕📓📒📔📚

So I was sent this Anxiety Booklet from the Primary Mental Health Team, and it had a list of recommended books in the back.

Me being me (the book freak) I went to trusty ebay and got most of them, they were pretty cheap apart from the one I didnt get. Some of them were published in the 90s so I’m guessing that is why they were cheaper.


The First one arrived today;

Self-Help for your nerves – Dr Claire Weekes


Apparently I can learn to relax and enjoy life again by obercoming stress and fear 😳🤔

We will see….

Next Book has arrived,


It is an older book, but still recommended so will give it a try.

I will update again when more books arrive 😄😄

What to watch next….

So I have spent a lot of time at home lately as you know if you read my blog.

In that time I have watched:

  • Almost every episode of Friends (lost a few discs to other cases)
  • Downton Abbey (although Now TV said 9 seasons, season 9 was a xmas episode and I swear there is a series missing)
  • Greys Anatomy (finished on Season 11 this morning but the next seasons aren’t there, apparently there is more?)

What else is out there? 

Should really be concentrating on revision for my exam June 2nd and finishing my huge assignment due in at the end of the month (this determines whether I Fail the module) 

I just don’t have the energy 😦 

What is wrong with me 😦
