This month started with me returning to work after a short break and I really struggled to get back into the swing of things. June is always a busy month at work but for some reason, I felt like I didn’t have my normal patience and calmness. I mentioned the challenges I face with balancing book blogging with my work in this book blogger hop post.
I’ve been feeling very tired and run down lately. My toddler was ill a couple of times so she woke a lot in the night. At the beginning of the month, I caught a mystery virus that made my lymph nodes swollen and painful and for a couple of weeks I’ve had bad back pain and numbness in my fingers which seems to have been exasperated by sitting at my desk all day. Hopefully, during the summer break I will be able to get out in the fresh air more and concentrate on my fitness goals, which should have a knock-on effect on my health and wellbeing.
The highlights of June for me were judging our local talent competition, going out for two Father’s Day meals and enjoying the sunshine with my family. What have you been up to this month? I’d love to hear about it!
Total blog posts: 16. You can read all my June posts here.

Both books were amazing!
Thank you all for joining me, I really appreciate it!
Again I didn’t have any time for my artwork. 🙁
However, I did make some progress on my novel and I faced my fear of sharing my writing by posting a short story for National Writing Day called “No People, No War.”
Tv & Film
Films watched: I finally got to watch The Greatest Showman on DVD and really enjoyed it.
TV shows: I haven’t watched much TV lately, but I did watch a bit of Star Trek TNG and Dark Angel on DVD.
