March was a good month in a lot of ways especially for my blog as my stats went up lots so I am on track for building it up. I had over 2,000 new followers over all social media and I am pleased to say that Stumbleupon has proved good in bringing in new people to read my blog. Facebook and my blog itself are the most popular ways of following my posts and I am pleased to say that the comments are increasing although very slowly.
I did an awful lot of reading but I think that was because of the bad weather and not feeling the best, a couple were short stories but altogether I read ten books, very pleased with that and keeps me on track for my total at the end of the year.
So it is now April and spring but not very spring like weather although we have not got snow down here on the south coast like they have up north.
My camper had a flat tyre so Greenflag breakdown service came out and sorted that out and charged the battery also telling me that it has the wrong battery so I will need to purchase a bigger one as that was why it went flat. A new tyre and a battery so it is going to be an expensive month. I am so looking forward to going away even if it’s just for a couple of days, I want to take the cat with me and see what she thinks about it.
I joined a Facebook group called single women with campers and was really pleased that there were so many of us out there roaming around the world. They did give me some good ideas and one was to put some tools in the van even though I will always have breakdown cover you never know when you might need a screw driver or spanner. I am still trying to think of a name for my camper so any ideas will be welcome, I think I am thinking too much about it.
I hope to do a lot more writing if I go away as very behind with book, I also have to write a couple of short stories for a competition and one for the Folkestone Writers.
Lunch this month is not until the end of April and hopefully everyone will be able to make it. We will be going to The Grand, I like it there and the views over to France are splendid on a clear day.
The weeds are starting to grow so I need to get the black matting put down under the stepping-stones to stop them and trim back some of the grape-vine. I put some pansies in pots just to brighten the place up a bit. I need it to stop raining so I can get it all sorted before they take over the garden, the weeds I mean.
What have you got planned for April?
Have a good week, it will seem like a nice short one if you are back to work in the morning. I just love this bunting, how clever.
