How quick has this year gone?

Is it just me of have I missed the whole of 2018 with a blink of an eye. This year has had it’s ups and downs. As it may for everyone. I’m not going to concentrate on the negatives as they’ve been dealt with. I think 2018 has been a really positive year. I’ve been promoted at work which is great. I’m enjoying work again. As I thought this was the main reason why I was always feeling low. Especially before my shift. Now you can’t keep me away from work.

Also another magical moment. Seeing my second daughter being born. I can’t explain how amazing this feeling is. Not to happen once but twice. I can’t thank my partner enough for giving me two beautiful children. I honestly don’t know how she done it. Yes I did cry my eyes out when they were both born. I couldn’t help it. Just the wave of emotion you have when you see them for the first time is amazing. I’m going to leave it there before I start crying again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Every year people keep asking about new year resolutions. I’m not a big fan of them to be honest. I’m just going to be more positive about life and enjoy being with my family.

I hope you all have wonderful Christmas and New year.

What’s your new year resolutions?

I’m looking forward to 2019 and need to get a handle on my books. I’ve got so many that I keep randomly buying that sound interesting but haven’t actually come to reading them. My wardrobe is now starting to look likea library πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The LifeBlood of the ill fated woman.

I was lucky enough to recieve this book from the author himself (Kevin Breaux) and once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. The book kicks off with a warrior woman Astrid the white (someone who you wouldn’t want to mess with) The picture in my head when I think of Astrid is the main character in Horizon called Aloy anyway onto the review πŸ˜‚

Astrid has awoke in a strange place that she’s never heard of. Even upon awakening Astrid has to defend herself and let her warrior skills take over.

Astrid walks to a town and is befriended by a warrior called Warren who takes Astrid in and tries to help her find her way back to her family and her homeland.

Astrid doesn’t take to her new surroundings she’s always getting into trouble and arguing with the elders about her homeland and they don’t believe a word she is saying.

For me Astrid was a person I could connect with straight away and enjoyed the character development of Astrid and her companions that she met on her way.

The book does have you gripped straight away. As I’m always thinking ahead to see how it will pan out but it never seems to go the way I think. That’s what I like about Kevin’s books. You’re literally sitting on the edge of your seat looking forward to the next page/paragraph and word to see whats going to happen.

If you haven’t read this or any other of Kevin’s books please go and check them out. Also one last thing the cover looks amazing. I want the actual book just to have in my book shelf πŸ˜‚

Reading slump.

My reading atm has came to a complete stand still. Every time I pick up my book I fall asleep. The last book I read was the blood of the ill fated woman by Kevin Breaux (review pending) Now I just can’t seem to get back into the swing of things and it’s getting really frustrating. I really do love reading and very passionate about it. I even borrowed a book to my friend who hasn’t read a book for 20+ years that should be motivating enough. I’m hoping this passes over soon and I get back into the swing of reading again.

Blogger interactions.

0A while ago I asked my fellow bloggers if any of them would like to work together on a post. There was a few that actually responded. I do apologise for the late post 🀣 I also forgot to write down the list of amazing bloggers that wanted todo this. Again I’m sorry about the delay. I hadn’t forgotten about you all.

 

So you awesome people what would you like to collaborate about. It can be about anything within reason 🀣 maybe leave a comment and we can get the ball rolling.

What todo?

Lately I think I’ve been handling my depression/anxiety quite well lately. I’ve even thought about cutting down my medication for obviously if the doctor think it’s ok. I have been a bit snappy lately but I’m putting that down to tiredness. The gym for me is really helping. Working out just seems to settle me down and release so much stress. I’m not here to preach what everyone should do. This just works for me. I’ve been keeping myself busy so I haven’t been over thinking. I was stressing about my blog as I haven’t been as consistent as I used to be. I’ve nearly done 200 post since March this year. I think I should’ve just posted every other day instead of everyday like I used to. I think I was just over excited when I first began blogging. I still get excited when writing a blog post. Even this one that I’m doing now 🀣 I’m now thinking about posting a few times a week. I was going to ask if you guys or gals would like to see do any specific posts or what would you like to see me post more of?

Nearly 400 followers.

Once I reach this amazing milestone, I think I would like todo a giveaway. One of my books from my small collection. I will give the winner a choice of three books and they can pick any one of the three books. This will be UK only. As it will cost me a fortune to send it overseasΒ πŸ˜‚ I don’t know how to set up the competition yet. I’m guessing using raffelecopter will work? I will have to figure out 🀣

This is just a little post. I hope you’re doing well.

Peaked too soon.

Yes gentleman we’ve all done it. Including you..yes you πŸ‘‹ My brain literally seems to be frazzled at the moment. Could it possibly be this glorious weather we are having here in the UK recently. I just can’t seem to find the motivation to write posts. I’ve got 39 draft posts that just need to be completed. Everytime I look at them I seem to manage to do something else 🀣 I do have todo alot of work on the house within the next few weeks so that’s going to take most of my time up. I’m still finding time to read. I’ve even tried reading 2 books at a time. I’m getting there slowly but surely 🀣 I think I’m just getting old and my brain doesn’t want to function unless I’ve had numerous amounts of coffee πŸ˜‚ I do apologise for the post it’s just me posting something so you all won’t forget about me πŸ˜‚

My over thinking brain. Would you kindly p*** off.

Why do I feel angry all the time. I’ve never felt like this before. I’m usually quite a chilled bloke. I never let anything bother me. But lately it just seems like everything is pissing me off. If something is happening I usually just keep my mouth shut but lately I’ve been having outbursts and saying what I’m actually thinking. I don’t know if I’m just over thinking this (there has been a lot going on in my personal life) so maybe that isn’t helping either.

I literally want to just to tell everyone to fuck off and leave me alone. I’m sure that’s just my depression trying to take over again. Well that can also fuck off aswell. As it’s not going to win.Β  I wish someone could take this away so I’d never have it again. Taking tablets just don’t work sometimes and pretty sure there isn’t an alternative.

I may have to go back to the doctor’s to see what else can be done. I’ve been eating really badly lately aswell so that won’t be helping my mood at all. So I could get that into check and hopefully that will help ease up things upstairs.

My head really needs an off switch. I’m over thinking everything lately and pissing myself off with it. Which is unfair to the people around me.

Think I’m going to end it there as I need to keep busy and stop thinking about this shit that’s going on in my head.

I apologise for the curse words but they seemed to fit better while I was writing 🀣
