If you’re an avid reader on a budget, you’ll find loads of free and bargain books on this weekly book linky from Beck Valley Books. Here you’ll find a great selection of pre-loved reads plus all the new releases about to hit shelves and Kindles, all downloadable from Amazon.com.
It’s the start of the new school year tomorrow and I’ve spent the day wrestling with ironing, labelling everything in my path and mentally berating myself for not making more of the long summer holiday. If, like me, you suffer from an onset of the back to school blues, you may find some ideas to cheer you up in this post.

I’m already missing Devon so much that we have already rebooked for my birthday in 2019 when I will reach the rather scary age of 55. I have to say I never know where the time goes and, when it comes to age, I always find myself very reflective (and somewhat melancholy) on the subject as you can see from a post I wrote a few years ago now when I reached the age of 52.
Mum is back out of hospital and normal family life has resumed. The Husband is flying around Europe whilst I man the fort at home. Caitlin starts year 6 and Ieuan is now in year 5 and after 6 weeks on their iPads they could definitely do with some non screen-related mental activity!
As I wrote last week, they are both looking forward to seeing their friends again but for us introvert mums, the whole school run thing can be a bit of an ordeal.
It’s back to ballet for Caitlin and back to football for Ieuan so the family taxi is in need of a spruce to purge it of sweet wrappers and sand. At least when I’m waiting around to pick them up I can catch up with my reading and, as usual, you will find some free and bargain books from Beck Valley Books on this link.
Look out for my upcoming review on 7th September of a fabulous motivational book by Davide Di Giorgio entitled “Being Unapologetic, Empowering You to Become an Influential Speaker and Visionary Leader”. I’ll give you a clue. The secret is all about being who you already ARE. I’ll leave you to mull that one over until next time.
Have a great week!
