September is not a month I want to think about too much. There was heat, there was sickness and there was a whole lot of depression making the rounds.
In September I read a total of 9 books which makes the total of 2020 224 books read.
Of the 9 books 7 books were fantasy and 2 books were sci-fi
Out of the 30 days of September I read 15 days which amounted to a total of 3120 pages. My best reading day was September 5th with 494 pages.
The rating average of this month was 3,66.

⌘ Well September didn’t start off too well. I got a really bad cold with achy troth, headaches and all the other fun bits. So as asked by the government in the rules I isolated and got a covid test to make sure it wasn’t covid-19.
Fun times. I had to drive 30-40 minutes to get to the test street (a drive through where you can stay in the car while swabbed). Because it has been so busy I had to go further away. It was okay in itself. The one up your nose was terrible but everything was done fast.
One the up, the test was negative. I remained sick the rest of the week though. And I hated that Merijn couldn’t go to school because I was not allowed to drop him off because of my cold and covid test. I get why but it still sucks immensely.
⌘ We had the last bit of heat at the start of September with a bit of a heatwave.
⌘ I ended up having a bowel infection the third week of September. Luck was not on my side. I also ended up having a very bad point in my depression. I think I am crawling back upwards right now but you know how these things work.
⌘ On the up, Merijn is getting more and more used at school and doing better overall.
