Bit Of Me Time

Searching for more time …


It’s a Blog-iversary

Yay, I got this ready for the Monday Club.  Although it is in fact a little belated….Birthday

On 21st April 2012,  I began my blog.  I can hardly believe it has already been a year.  In my very first blog, I gave the reasons for starting to blog as having time to myself and my thoughts, and if nothing inspirational came along, then it would be a bit of diary on the events that go on around me.

I’ve re-read my blogs and there are days and events I’d forgotten, funny things that have happened, and I’m really glad I have a record of it.  So, as before, I’m not a writer, I’m a busy Mum who enjoys putting a few thoughts on paper.  Some blogs are reduced in size due to time, others flow freely.  Consistency may not be my thing, but I am hopeful that I’ll be celebrating my second anniversary.

Book Club – Chapter 10

This weeks’ book club was in the village, so I dusted off my bike, which now has a kick-stand, and I have just discovered that kick-stands do not stand on gravel, they sink.  It also has some very bright new lights and it was really cool to be able to see where I was going, at last.  The evening was as fun as ever and with very yummy food.  We are also trying to fill our vacant space, so there maybe eight of us again soon.

“Gold” by Chris Cleave was a great book.  It is about two Olympic track cyclists, the story on and off the track and their preparation for winning gold.  There was a good balance between the training and track-side, as well as the personal lives of the riders.  I really got involved with the characters, and felt for them when times were tough, and relieved for them when it went their way.  For me it was really difficult to put down.  I don’t think when it was chosen that everyone around the table was looking forward to it, but I read it pretty quickly.  I would definitely recommend it.

The next book is “You Before Me” by Jojo Moyes. Me Before You
