October 2023 was best described as interesting. I survived Halloween, found a new and exciting way to make my muscles complain and finally after months of angst, idiots and everything in between, I finally sold my old car while simultaneously enjoying the new one.
Yes a special shout out to the month just gone in September 2023 for throwing in all sorts of good and bad across it’s thirty days including a stonkingly good AFL Grand Final, a great looking car with very little oil inside, one of the worst sales months ever and a passing fever that bowled me over like Bill Murray in Kingpin..
While the usual foibles of this year continued across August 2023 (my car attracting idiots, things like the dryer blowing up etc) there were some highlights to the month, the main one being a new furry addition to the family!
I finished a book, swore at my car (again) and cut out another financial service that said ‘Please sir, can we have some more money?’ Now that July 2023 is ticked off, it’s the downhill slide to keep my sanity where I’m looking forward to things calming down again.*
*Using this year as an example, results may well and truly vary.
Ahh half a year down, half to go. Welcome to June 2023 where it’s been a month of big birthdays, bills and book sales. Oh and the month where we quietly clicked over 100 posts!
Building the desk, hearing from critics and being well out of my depth. Welcome to May 2023 where you can’t please everyone but talking about things certainly help.
Well wasn’t April 2023 a busy month? I had not one but two milestones this month, celebrated an anniversary, got stuck in the mud, checked out some live music and finally finished my box set!
Obviously not every month is going to have a theme here but this one certainly did. March 2023 was all about celebrating birthdays and everything deciding it wanted to be paid at the same time. And I got back into exercising, after we made sure the house was ship shape first though..
Across the month I blogged, I wrote, I lifted and got injured. I also finally took myself to the doctors when my asthma went a little stir crazy and on top of that I started wondering about big Volvos.. Welcome to February 2023!
January 2023 – So much for a slow start to the year then. This month I cut back on the caffeine and my spending. I lifted more weights and read more. Oh and I sanded down a table and became a part owner of Tesla, so it’s been a pretty eventful month really…
I did all the right things for a good night sleep and all I got was a series of minor nightmares. Seriously brain, can’t you just switch off and let me slumber?
Just 11 days into the new year and I’m proud to report that I’ve chewed through a few workouts, put fist to keyboard a few times (in a positive way) and organised things a little better so there’s not data and other gear flying all over the shop.
Also I’m confused by stat apps and is it just me or do things seem very quiet in the self publishing world at the moment?
