SUMMER BUCKET LIST

img_4353

Someone asked me if I was going away in my camper van this summer and it got me thinking about a summer bucket list. What do you want to do? Have you made any plans yet? My biggest wish is for hot weather, it would be so good if we actually knew it was going to be warm and nice as then you would have so many plans. Also it would be so good to be able to leave all your chairs and cushions etc out in the garden all summer, I get so fed up bringing it all in as soon as the weather changes.

I think my list goes like this:

Camping with the family.

Going to the open air swimming pool in Faversham with the children.

Getting a tan.

Enjoying a glass of wine in Jodie’s hot tub.

Going to the beach.

Spending an afternoon in the sunshine with friends and drinking a cocktail.

Eating in the garden.

Seeing more of the UK in the camper van.

Sitting outside in the evening just chilling.

Taking lots of photo’s in manual mode on camera. (I need the practise)

Going up the stables with a picnic, watching them all ride.

I am sure I will think of lots more as soon as I have finished this.

I saw these cute note books in The Works, you can never have too many!

This is the book I am reading now and so far it is ok, a FBI agent has crashed her car and lost her memory so I guess anything could happen next. I have a few ideas but I am probably wrong, I think I have seen a film along the same lines but as usual I cannot remember the name of it.

This is a new author for me and one I have not heard off, I like giving reviews for different authors.

I have been asked if I would like to do another hypnotherapy session with Mark down at Core Therapies in exchange for a review, so that will be happening after Easter.

Tomorrow is the meeting for the Folkestone writers which I attend, this year I will be doing a lot of their advertising on social media and getting the word out about the writing competition this year and the anthology. We still have some books left from last year if anybody would like one please let me know.

Hope you are all having a good week and dodging the showers.

BARGAINS FROM THE WORKS – JULIE WASSMER BOOKS

I was so pleased to find these in The Works a couple of days ago as not only did I have points that added up to £3.60 I then found my favourite authors books at 3 for £5 most definitely a great bargain!

I have all of the series now so looking forward to reading them all and then I will have to wait for the TV series of them which I think will be great.

This author keeps you guessing until the end in all her books and I like that. I also find it wonderful to read about places I know and love.

Hope you enjoy them to. x 

REMEMBER STATIONERY WEEK

I just had to show you these cute little note books I found in The Works and what an absolute bargain at 99p.  I really love the handbag one with the chain handle, very handy if your hands are full.  I could not decide which one I liked best so I just had to buy both.  Then I saw a lovely pink gel pen, writes like a dream and you have to get a new pen to go with the new note books don’t you?  Well that’s my excuse lol.
