Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2018

Posted 10th April 2018 by Tizzy Brown in Blog Fests & Hops, Blog Updates / 🗨3 Comments

This post is going up nearly a week later than planned, but oh well! I hope you all had a happy Easter? My little one had chicken pox so our plans for a reunion meal with extended family had to be cancelled, but we still had a nice time visiting the in-laws. 

I’m currently on holiday from work and I’m enjoying relaxing and spending quality time with my family. Work has been pretty stressful lately and I also had lots on socially in March, including several family birthdays, mothers day and a hen party. April promises to be even more exciting, with my Dad’s wedding next weekend, a couple of parties and a trip to Centerparcs. I’m really excited and hoping to see some lovely springtime weather soon too!

 

Blogging

Last month I was busy with Bloggiesta and preparing for the A-Z Challenge. I made a few changes to the blog design and structure and joined in with several hops. 

Total Blog posts: 13. You can read all my March posts here.

Creative Hobbies

No new artwork, baking or poetry last month. I have done a few creative things in preparation for my Dad’s wedding, such as designing the post box and writing the place cards in calligraphy using my newly learned lettering techniques. After the wedding is over I can post some pictures!

 

Tv & Film

Films watched: The Hobbit trilogy

TV shows: The only thing I remember watching was a BBC mystery/thriller called Keeping Faith.

Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2018

Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2018

Welcome to my monthly wrap-up post for February, a time when I reflect on the month that has just passed, review what I’ve achieved and set my goals for next month.  February flew by as usual and I feel like I achieved next to nothing!. I had one week off work and I had great plans to fill it with lots of blogging, reading, writing, quality time with my husband and fun family activities. Unfortunately, my little girl was ill and very miserable all week so all of our plans went out of the window and although I enjoyed all our cuddles […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2018

Welcome to my monthly wrap-up post for January 2018, a time when I reflect on the month that has just passed, review what I’ve achieved and set my goals for next month.  January has been a busy month for me as I have made a lot of changes to the blog, including a name change, layout re-design and, of course, the switch to WordPress. I wanted to start the year as I meant to go on, dedicating much more time to the creative hobbies I enjoy. After a long time of feeling blocked, I’ve been inspired to start writing again and I […]

Monthly Wrap-Up August 2014

Monthly Wrap-Up August 2014

I normally forget to do these monthly wrap-up posts, but I thought I’d better get into the habit again. I’m on a bit of a blogging roll recently and hopefully the momentum will last. Monthly wrap-up is an opportunity to reflect on the month that’s just passed and what I’ve achieved and review my goal’s for next month. August really flew by because I was off work-it only seemed to last about a week! But never mind, I still managed to get a few things done in that time. Reading On holiday in Tenerife I read the following non-fiction books: […]

November Wrap-Up

November Wrap-Up

It’s that time of the month again (no, not that time), the time when I reflect on the month that’s just passed and review my goals and what I’ve achieved. I’m not a great fan of November due to the increasing cold and dark weather, so normally I don’t do much except hibernate in bed with the electric blanket on and drink huge amounts of hot chocolate (except when I’m at work, they don’t let me do that there). ReadingThis month I’ve read Shiver by Maggie Steifvater, Crewel by Gennifer Albin and Every Dead Thing by John Conolly. That’s a […]

June Wrap Up

June Wrap Up

Well I don’t know where June has gone to be honest, but now it’s the 1st July and the year’s already half over (or half begun, depending on which way you look at it). I’ve decided to start doing a monthly wrap-up of my reading and other creative activities as well as goal-setting for the next month, mostly to keep my own brain in order. ReadingI’m close to finishing City of Bones by Cassandra Clare and will soon need help deciding what to read next (see my ‘What Next?’ post on Thursday). It’s taken me quite a bit longer than […]
