Sunday Salon – Sunday Reflections

I have not posted recently, which is a shame. I have been working on various projects, doing some reading and coping with the day job, which in itself is not difficult, but I have had a further complication and the result of that is my loss of confidence and faith in myself. So, when things get tough, I tend to focus on various hobbies and interests and reading usually plays a part in that.

I am currently writing the reviews for the following recently read books.

I have another book which arrived this week for a review for the Federation of Family History Societies.

I also have four other reviews to post, not to mention a rather large mountain of books to read. I am attempting to not purchase any books. I have not been to the library in ages, although I did ask my Mum to renew a book that I was about to get a fine for and I still want to read. So that needs to be read in the next few weeks.

I am also on the look out for a book club; either virtual or local to me, where we can read and share thoughts and alike. If anyone has any recommendations I would appreciate it.

Overall, I am finding that I am caught up too much in work mode. I am, only a month back from my last holiday in desperate need of another and have until early October to wait. Work will settle down soon hopefully and once it does I will stop bring it home in my head and that will enable me to focus on the other important things of life – mainly my genealogy projects, reading and my beloved husband.

    I hope things get easier for you, and that you enjoy all of your books in the meantime!


  2. Sometimes it is almost impossible to do all the things we want or need to do. Hang in there!

    Hope you do find a good book club. I've been thinking about that, too.

    Looks like you're really busy. I can see why 🙂 I see we share a hobby, genealogy. Well, that's very timeconsuming, isn't it?
