Dancing out of March 2022

March was a weird month. I started off reading okay but then got hit by eh news which then at the end of the month turned to bad news and that hit my reading pretty hard. I still managed 8 books so that is okay. But I also only read 9 days of the whole month.

The Numbers

In March I read a total of 8 books which makes the total of 2022 30 books read.
Of the 8 books 7 books were fantasy and 1 book was sci-fi .
Out of the 31 days of March I read 9 days which amounted to a total of 2950 pages.
The rating average of this month was 3,5 stars.

⌘ March was a hard month for a variety of reasons.

⌘ I don’t know why people always feel the need to tell you how to be. Merijn had a meltdown in the street, near school, and an elderly man had to scream at me about it the middle of the month. That did wonders for my anxiety. I’m sure you can imagine.

⌘ There has been some health scares in my direct family that really suck. Normally I would be a bit more open about that but they don’t want some people to know and I don’t know who reads my blog from real life. But I don’t mind if people ask me about it in private. I have been so tired and headachy from all that is to come and from the things we don’t know yet.

⌘ Maarten and I went to Crea Weekend mid-way through March. It was the first time I went to a multiple day creative event like that with workshops and stands. Honestly, Maarten and I theorized I could probably have a stand/workshop there as well in the future. I was thinking about the fall but I might wait until next year.

⌘ We had t-shirt weather for 2 weeks and then bam, the last day of March we got snow.

⌘ I am going to try and participate in the magical readathon but the above health scare is going to be a whole traject for the person and once things start going I’m probably going to have to be there part of the time.

  1. I hope April is kinder to you and your family than March was! I have to say, though, I’m really impressed that you fit that much reading into just 9 days of the month! And I’m tempted now to start tracking pages read by day…

  2. I hope that all gets better for you and your family as time goes on. As for the old man yelling at you, forget him! You are an awesome person and an amazing mom! Kids are little people trying to figure out the world they live in, and no matter the age, meltdowns happen.

  3. I’m sorry to hear March was a tough month for you. I hope that April will be better for you and your family! Ugh, that man that yelled at you sounds awful. I definitely don’t understand why people feel like they need to do things like that. We had the same weird weather in Belgium, really keeps you on your toes, never knowing what to expect (or even what to wear haha).

    1. Right like I wasn’t in front of his house or anything like that. They just walked past.

      Then this week was rain and wind and hail and thunder. And next week we are back to sun It’s like a whiplash.


  4. Niet moeilijk dat je na dat nieuws iets anders aan je hoofd had dan lezen. De reactie van het ouder koppel snap ik nog steeds niet. Zo bizar hoe buitenstaanders zich snel een mening vormen terwijl ze iemand totaal niet kennen. Jammer ook dat mensen zich zo snel geroepen voelen om anderen te bekritiseren.

    Go hex yourself en Crowbones staan op mijn (Gifster-)wenslijst dus die hoop ik later dit jaar aan mijn collectie te kunnen toevoegen en lezen.
