July 2019 round up

I had intended to do this last week, but got confused and did another post about my bookshelves instead. Whoops!

What I have read

I feel like I haven’t read so much the past month, but I’m still six books ahead of schedule so it’s all good. Instead I’ve been re-reading bits of fanfic that I’ve written and trying to finish off some stories and that’s taken up a lot of my reading time. What I have read is:

  • Seven Stones to Stand or Fall (Outlander short stories) – Diana Gabaldon
  • Absolutely Smashing It! – Kathryn Wallace
  • The Mystery of the Missing Masterpiece (Adventure Island #4) – Helen Moss
  • Sustainable Home – Christine Liu
  • St Andrews in the 20s, 30s and 40s – Hugh Oram
  • Russian Roulette (Mirabelle Bevan Mystery #6) – Sara Sheridan
  • Victory in My Hands – Harold Russell
  • Miss Carter’s War – Sheila Hancock

And I made progress on:

  • Outlander (Outlander #1) – Diana Gabaldon (audiobook)
  • The Mummy Lessons – Helen Wallen
  • Baby. Boom! – Helen Wallen

I’m almost finished the Outlander audiobook. At time of writing there’s just 1 hour 29 minutes to go!

I’m not reading both the Helen Wallens’ books at the same time, I bought the second one for my Kindle and got a chapter or so in before I realised it was the second in a series. So Naturally I bought the first book and started on that!

What I have watched

  • Hollyoaks
  • Murder She Wrote season 4
  • Series three of Stranger Things, which was probably the best one yet
  • ER season 12

What I have done

  • Gone Oor Wullie hunting, as there’s a new trail.
  • Replaced our kitchen sink and work surface – it’s amazing how much difference a little thing like that makes – and we managed to put up a blind in our bathroom with minimal help!
  • Been to the beach again
  • Made a few trips to play parks, but less than previous months as of course they are full of school kids now!
  • Visited the Botanic Gardens
  • Went to the Emergency Vehicles Day at our Transport Museum
  • Set up the paddling pool (only once, as carrying buckets of water down the stairs is a pain!)
  • Organised crisp packet recycling points at my work

    Regarding the paddling pool: is there maybe a way to attach a garden hose to the warm water tap? That would save you carrying buckets of water downstairs.
