Linking up with Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and It's Monday! What are You Reading? now hosted by Kathryn @Book Date.
Well the first week of 2016 didn't quite go as planned, our home server crashed and died and we changed our internet & wifi arrangement and ended up being without for a few days so apologies for being MIA and not visiting. I must admit I enjoyed the unplanned, unplugged time but this week things are back on track #fingerscrossed
Yesterday we had a 'gourmet' picnic in the park and played badminton, so much fun!
After Christmas I watched the Downton Abbey Christmas special. Sad to say goodbye to one of my favourite series but what a wonderful send-off.
And amongst all the series I can't wait for the return of, Vikings tops the list. How exciting does the new season look :)
#FitReaders co-hosted by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and Jen @ That’s What I’m Talking About. FitReaders is a great way to stay motivated, accountable and it's more fun having bloggy friends to check in with. If you also have a fitbit and want to add me, let me know :)
I love this group ... support and encouragement no matter what level of activity you're at. Felicia and Jen's stories made me feel comfortable joining 2 years ago, a virus affected my heart and after 6 months of no exercise, I was cleared to begin walking again. It's been a long, slow road to getting heart healthy (literally) but I'm so glad it was with bookblogwalkers/FitReaders. Heartfelt thanks girls HA :)
This year I'm going to try and do the 5k each month. January was tough but I did it :)
