Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul

Happy New Year folks! Whoa – three posts in one week? Some kind of record for me (this year anyway!) What can I say? I’m inspired lol. I made a decision to not let things get too on top of me and most importantly to give myself a break and stop beating myself up for every little thing. I’d say it was a New Year resolution but no one ever keeps those so it’s more like a promise to myself. Hope I don’t let myself down haha!

I’ve had the last week off work and I’m off the whole of next week as well and it’s been great just to chill out and not think too much about everything (probably also why I’m posting more as well). I’ve been playing a few games (A Plague Tale: Innocence (again) and The Sims 4) plus watching films (my traditional Christmas Eve movie – Black Christmas lol) and a couple of shows (Emily in Paris – what can I say, it’s trashy but pretty!) and also starting watching World on Fire (which is so, so good).

We went to my partner’s folks house for Christmas Dinner and just had a nice chilled day. Hogmanay was quiet too (we’re both homebodies and not keen on going out at New Year – prefer to spend the time in our jammies lol). I woke up this morning feeling a little out of sorts though – typical!! Never mind, I still plan to make the most of this forthcoming week by relaxing as much as possible. 😉
