Much earlier than you are used to of me but as this posts we are getting ready to leave to the German airport to board a plane to Spain. I won’t be able to do my usual end of the year wrap up for a bit and so I figured I’d wrap the month up as is already and do the rest in the year wrap up. If I even read at all during this vacation.

So in the new year I am going to start C.W.’s #StartOnYourShelfathon and one of the things that goes along with it is to plan out what books you’d like to read for it each month. So in my wrap ups next year you will be seeing this little addition to my wrap ups where I talk about what counted towards this reading challenge, how my star map is faring and what I will be reading the next month. It kind of will come in the place of my section what to expect next month as I can add in any personal things in the how was I section. (And this wrap up is big enough as it is, lol).
January Possible TBR: The Dragon Republic / The Tyrant’s Tomb / Tristan Strong
⌘ December started off swell with Merijn catching a stomach flu and missing the Sinterklaas celebration at pre-school. Then I caught the stomach flu, husband and back to me. After that I started coughing so bad that I didn’t properly sleep for a few nights and managed to pull a muscle in my neck so we’re back to neckpain now. To say I am kind of over my body is an understatement.
⌘ Mostly everything is so exhausting with arranging things for Merijn. And getting people to understand how things work for him. Or rathering willing to accept. But at least he is doing pretty well at pre-school and he is getting better at talking.
⌘ On the up I signed up for a volunteering pilot trajectory at the library that is nation wide. I will be doing a 5 meeting course with a small group of parents about helping them to motivate their kids to read and to help them help their kids do homework. It is a little more than just that but there is also only so much known about it because it is a pilot. I’ll get training 3 mornings in january/february before the course actually starts and there is a lot of room for me to fill things in on my own.
⌘ As this posts we are getting read to leave for Spain and please keep me in your thoughts because this the first time flying for Merijn and our first time in 10 years.
