It’s Monday!

This post was originally started on Monday 31st March however between the jigs and the reels things got a little hectic and now the action is happening today. As you can see!

Over the past couple of weeks I have been caught up listening to the PC Peter Grant stories and currently I am on Broken Homes. I have never been one for audio books but getting into these books listening has been a lot better than reading the hard copies. With work in the background and really stepping up its game taking time out to read a book has been quite difficult so having an audiobook on in the background whilst doing little things like cleaning or packing things away is just brilliant.

The lovelies at Audible have given me a bit of rope to go out and review some books so I will be letting you know what I choose for my first list and keep you updated on how I get on.

Do you use Audible?

What do you think of it?

Do you still prefer reading or are you happy to mix it up?

Busy bee right! I have to say that I am incredibly proud of myself and once I have finished writing this post I will try and finish the rest of my list! After I have pooped myself out I will be looking at many of the other wrap up posts to see how everyone else got on!

Well done guys ‘n’ gals!

It’s Monday

So what have you all been up to over the past week?

Did you have a nice weekend? 



Still jumping between audio and paperback my mind is slightly boggled to the point that I cannot wait to get to the end of the book. That does not stop it being fabulous!


Rivers of London


ozeri espresso 2

I have been at home drinking plenty of coffee and trying to be productive and conquer my ever-growing procrastination (yet again!).


kiefer jackThis addictive TV series is something that has taken up many hours of my time but it is just something that I cannot help to click on next when one episode is over. Each episode leaves you on such a cliff hanger that you just HAVE to know what is going to happen next. Oh and Kiefer (Son of Donald) Sutherland is just amazing! You have to love him.

I am very excited about Season 4 of Game of Thrones, apparently it is due to air on April 6th – so exciting!!!

That’s all from me – now it’s time to sleep (Night shifts here I come!) 

It’s Monday What Are You . . .


A Winter Flame by Milly Johnson

So far so good and almost finished so the review will be up ASAP! Just keep checking back.

Reading Next

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Coco's Secret by Niamh Greene

I am looking forward to reading both of these books. Have you read either of them?

What are you reading?


jordans 1st pair

After returning from the US with this truly AWESOME pair of Jordan’s they are all I want to wear. Sadly they do not go with everything and I don’t want to wear them out quickly so they do go back in the box every now and then!

If you have Jordan’s – How do you wear yours? If you don’t buy some because they are über comfortable!

Skin Care

Ginger wake up shower gel

This delectable bathroom goody has made me want more than the regular three showers a day (it may seem excessive to some but oh well!). Have you tried it?

Hair Care


These bad boys have not only tamed my locks but also kept away the split ends and made my hair feel sleek. Very happy at the moment!

Listening to . . .

This is the clean version of the tune as I thought it was only appropriate for the blog. However if you would like to watch the original then please do find it on You Tube!
I listen to a variety of music but this song right now has made a regular recurrence on my playlist. What is on yours?



This show is highly addictive and there is something that I cannot identify about Benedict Cumberbatch that is just so HOT!

How is your Monday panning out?

Do let me know :Dmonday love!
