Looking Back At August and Forward To September 2017

Firstly… I’m not sure how this post is going to look. The thirteen year old was acting very shifty last night when I took her to a sleepover. I realised this morning why… she’s took the laptop ( for Netflix no doubt ) Yep, there’ll be big trouble when she gets home! So excuse any dodgy formatting… I’m doing this on my phone! 

So this is it, summer holidays over and back to work tomorrow 😭. I’ve taken a few days off from blogging & social media this week to spend a bit time with the daughter – we’ve done theme parks, shopping, movie nights etc. She’s 13 almost, so it was nice to connect again. It feels a lot like she’s drifted away in the last few months… though I’m mighty pissed off with her right now! 

I set myself a challenge over the holidays to read 20 books and I managed 24! So I’m really pleased with that. Here’s some of the highlights. 


September is looking really busy and I’m lined up to take part in some fab blog tours and have some amazing sounding books to read. I’m particularly looking forward to these books! 


Autumn is the best time for reading I think, with crisp mornings and cosy evenings. September and Early October are beautiful here I Cumbria full of gorgeous colours. It really is my favourite time of year! So when I spotted @ canelo_co had an autumn themed photo challenge on Instagram, I had to join in! My first post combined day 1’s prompt of #Leaves and day 2’s prompt of #scarves 


If you want to follow me on Instagram, I’m @vicki_cosybooks and if you’re interested in Canelo’s challenge, here’s the details right here … 


So, August was a great month but I’m ready for September now I think. Give me a week or two though and I’m sure I’ll be moaning about having to go to work again! I’m off out soon, as I support in a club for people with Learning Disabilities on a Sunday, so apologies again if this post looks awful (I’m mostly worried about the images as I can’t format them on my phone!) I’ll be back later this afternoon to fix it once I’ve got my laptop back!

  1. Oh I remember those years well but remember she still needs you really (or at least your laptop!)
    You did well to finish 24 books and I particularly loved The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde too – and have My Mother’s Shadow to read soon too. Enjoy A Dangerous Crossing, it is a stunning read, a particular favourite of mine as I have a small cameo role in this one!
