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! I'm noticing that some blogs set with Google Plus are trying to force you to open a Google Plus account before you can leave a comment. Well, I have no interest in rejoining Google Plus so if your blog uses this set up, I won't be following it or commenting! 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!
It's nice to be back! I was totally burned out and suffering in the hot weather spell we were having-I don't do well in heat-so I decided to take a break towards the end of last week, hoping to feel refreshed, rest and read! Well it didn't quite work out how I expected as my dad phoned the hotel in Blackpool that we usually visit when we go there on Saturday night, to see if he could fit us in for a short break. I love going to Blackpool but I didn't enjoy the mad scramble on Saturday night to get ready to leave on Sunday morning! And guess what-Blackpool had a bigger heatwave than we had here and I was ROASTED in the sun!!! The average temperature was 25 degrees! All the details will be on my holiday post-An Unexpected Journey. So much for a quiet rest! It was a hectic holiday full of walking, sweat, and sun but it was a good holiday overall. We got back yesterday afternoon so now I have piles of washing and ironing to do...groan!
So I didn't get a single book read the entire holiday as I was just too tired! I had to just read those true story magazines instead, which I like. It reminds me that other people are having worse times than me. I plan to do a post about these reading habits this week sometime. I do hope to get some reading done while my dad yells at the football over the next couple of weeks! On holiday I just had to buy a few books (of course!) and a few I'd ordered a couple of weeks ago arrived while I was away. I'm not sure I'll like the charity shop book but I just loved the cover so it was an impulse buy! A smaller STS this week at last!
