April 2020 Recap


Firstly I just wanted to give a quick update and apologise for things being so slow around here lately. Obviously this has been a really strange time for the whole world and I'm finding that the stress is kicking my butt. I've managed to do a bit more reading this month (mainly because I've been cheating with graphic novels & shorter stories rather than full length novels LOL) but I'm finding it so hard to concentrate on anything and blogging has fallen by the wayside. I'm hoping to get myself back in gear soon but I hope you'll bear with me if it takes me a while to get things back to normal.

I hope that wherever you are in the world you and your loved ones are managing to stay safe in these difficult circumstances and I really hope we can all go back to normal life in the not too distant future!
