Well obviously, March was the month that the world changed. We now cross the road when we see someone approaching from the opposite direction, yet still call out a cheery “Good morning!”. Scully is enjoying the social distancing from other dogs, 2 metres seems to be the perfect distance for her to gawk at said dog but not have her bum sniffed. Still, it’s hard not being able to take her on nice long walks, especially since it’s been so sunny. What cruel twist of fate the weather is playing on us.

I haven’t really been reading much though. Audiobooks are down to almost nothing, I’ve tried listening while working but it’s not the same as walking at a brisk pace. And the constant news cycle has been badgering my anxious brain to look at it rather than the books I want to read. I seem to be getting a bit back into reading now, and I actually wrote a review the other day! So we’ll see if I keep the blog going or not. Not to mention that book buying opportunities seem to be drying up all over the place. Haha, like I’m going to run out, but still, it seems hard to encourage people to buy new books.

I hope you and your loved ones are safe, and have enough food to satisfy your mental health as well as physical. Here’s what made it onto the blog…
