March was the weirdest and longest month. With covid-19 hitting most of us, I expect I won’t be the only one who feels like that…
In March I read a total of 14 books which makes the total of 2020 39 books read.
Of the 14 books 13 books were fantasy and 1 book was sci-fi.
Out of the 31 days of March I read 16 days which amounted to a total of 3767 pages. My best reading day was March 9th with 562 pages.
The rating average of this month was 4.

April Plan: Wyrd Sisters | Guards! Guards!
My E-arc copy of The Electric Heir was over 500 pages so that totally counted.
April Plan: I mean, I don’t know. I have a lot of plans but none for reading a 500+ page book but I do have a lot of plans for May for those so…

⌘ I’m sure this was a weird month for everyone with covid-19 hitting the western countries fairly hard. In the Netherlands they decided to close down school in the middle of the month, including pre-school, until April 6th (now April 28th). So Merijn has been home. Most people have to work from home if possible.
⌘ Husband works at a supermarket and his job has been marked vital which amuses me. But yeah he has been working 4-5 days a week still.
⌘ Merijn has been having a hard time not having pre-school and searched very hard for some structure. We ended up choosing to use pictograms for a day structure and that has helped him. But he has regressed in certain behaviours because of all the stress (points down below) and change.
⌘ Unfortunately grandpa (fil) had a cerebral hemorrhage and that affected Merijn a lot too. At the end of the month he was admitted to a rehabilitation center to work on getting better. But overal he got extremely lucky with how much damage was done. We’re mostly worried about his eyes at this point.
⌘ So one can imagine that I have no idea what is up or down anymore. Things are all over the place and what is even normal?
