Long Time No Blog

Hey! How are you? What have you been up to?

Wow. I can't believe I haven't posted an update since the beginning of the month. BUT, in my defence, July has been a pretty active month. 

For starters, hubby took two weeks off from work for an overdue break. And my daughter was home for the same two weeks because of school holidays. 

So, put all that together and it means I was too busy relaxing, going on adventures and catching up on stuff we'd put off. By the time we settled on the couch for the night, I was too tired to post anything. And instead sat back sorting through the Idea Files on my phone while Seinfeld eps played in the backround.

What did we actually do? Well, we started the break with my birthday weekend celebrations. There was much secondhand book shopping, delish meals, lots of walking, plus Ant-Man and the Wasp. Loved the movie, btw. It was SO MUCH fun and that ending was killer.

After such an awesome weekend, we took care of tax stuff, got blood tests done, walked over The Sydney Harbour Bridge, went on several city outings, bought a bunch of EOFY-sale books & stationery, walked everywhere, and hubby even found an awesome laptop for me!

If you remember, I actually bought a new one at the beginning of this year because my beloved Samsung lappy was getting sluggish. As it turns out, the Acer Switch is cute and fast and lovely, but just isn't a right fit for what I need. The 2-in-1 thing is great if you're on the go, but I need something sturdier, with a bigger screen, and more USB ports.

And hubby found a great deal on a 15" HP that is just what I need. Yay. Looking forward to testing it out when I get stuck into my next WIP...

I also spent quite a bit of time reading. Of course! And even more time buying books. 😳

It was a winter break we REALLY needed, and we had a great time. So good I wasn't ready for it to end. The first week back was a little strange and so I spent most of it reading, trying to shift gears, and thinking about what to do next. 

That's another problem. My brain is so cluttered with ideas that I STILL haven't settled on my next project. But that's a story for another day.

Have a great week!
