Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. I don't allow any company access to my social media accounts and I certainly don't allow them to edit and take over my accounts the way DISQUS does. So if you use DISQUS, I can't leave comments on your page so I can't really follow you back, sorry! And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me so there might not be a message from me some weeks or you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
Here we are with another week and March is getting closer to an end. Still can't believe how time has been flying by. This has been quite a gruesome week for getting stuff done and I'm tired and sore. I usedmy new water jet thing from Aldi to give the window edges and the doors a decent clean, something I kept forgetting to do-but for the last two days my ribs are aching and my arms feel like they have been pulled out the sockets! Still, it's a job done. I had hoped to get our rain collection bin set up but my dad won't let me touch his drill and he's been glued to the horse racing all week, his yelling giving me a 4 day headache! And of course the pasta last night decided to annoy me by taking ages to go soft so my back was pleading for mercy! I plan to do nothing and feel sorry for myself this weekend!
On the computer side of things I also got a ton of things done. As you might have seen on my earlier blog post, I decided this week to tackle all the old reviews I never did back in 2010-2014. I have lost the notes for all of these reviews so knowing I had to do mini reviews from memory, I kept putting it off. This week I got started and hoped to be finished by the weekend but I still have a ton to get through. It is quite depressing but when it's done it will make a huge difference to my Goodreads pages! It will leave me with all the reviews I do have notes for, a handful that I plan to reread and write new notes for, encyclopedias/colouring books which I only have a few lines to say once I take a quick look at them. This will make me feel there is light at the end of the tunnel as far as reviews go and when I catch up during the year, I won't let another backlog occur!
Book wise this was Horror Week at The Book Cave and it got off to a decent enough start but by the middle of the week I was struggling to lift a horror book, having lost the mood for them! So I switched to non fiction disaster related books and fictional books about nuclear war which are a different type of horror. It gets more books looked at. My STS this week includes a few new books I got this week and another pile I was directed to by a friend! Nice! I'm excited by the bought paperback collection including the two sequels to Imperium which I'm looking forward to read soon! I haven't decided on my theme for this week-it will either be Paranormal or Disaster.
