Just a quick update from Being Anne…

By | February 19, 2017


My blogging break – as some of you may have noticed – has gone on for far longer than I ever intended. These last stages should have been simple – finish the sale of my Mum’s house, move her to her lovely new flat with Churchill Homes in Yorkshire, get a care package in place if needed – but everything that could possibly go wrong around a simple move has most emphatically happened. We should be exchanging contracts on Tuesday – on the old house and the new flat – but I have absolutely no idea if it will actually happen. If it doesn’t, Mum will be moving anyway – we’ll scrape together all our savings to buy the flat, Mum can move in, and we’ll be putting the house back on the market. So I’ll finally be moving back home on 28th February – with some “me” time (at long last…) to read, blog and interact on social media again.

Between now and then, I do have a few posts planned. Tomorrow, I’m joining the blog tour for Sheryl Browne’s After She’s Gone – I really couldn’t miss that one, could I?

Thursday 23rd sees the paperback release of Annabelle Thorpe’s The People We Were Before. I’d really hoped to read and review, but instead I’ll be running again the excellent article Annabelle wrote for me on the background to the book.

On Friday 24th I’ll be reviewing Through The Barricades by Denise Deegan for her blog tour with Brook Cottage Books. I’m reading this one at the moment, and thoroughly enjoying it.

Then on Monday 27th I’ll be reviewing Because I Was Lonely by Hayley Mitchell as part of the blog tour – my next read (not sure quite when, but hey ho!), and one I’m rather looking forward to.

I then have no more posts planned until 8th March (there might just be a chance of some quick reviews though!), when I’ll be reviewing The Girl In The Painting by Kirsty Ferry, accompanied by a guest post.

I’m rather hoping that’ll mark my return, both to a more normal existence and to more regular blogging (I’ve missed it so much!).

    Everything crossed for Tuesday, Anne! Would make life so much simpler if the purchasers pull their fingers out and come up with the goods. xxx

    Why is nothing ever simple? I can’t count the times I’ve thought – ‘I’ll just do that,’ but then…. I very much hope the sale goes through and you don’t have to raid the personal piggy bank. Best of luck and fingers crossed you can soon get back to normal. gx

    I know what a nightmare this has been for you. Thinking of you and keeping everything crossed it all goes off OK xxx

    Fingers crossed for Tuesday, you’ve had a traumatic time and don’t need the extra stress of this. Hopefully this time next week you’ll be telling us that the move went smoothly and both you and your mum can start looking forward. xx

    Hope all goes well on Tuesday Anne. I’m sure you’ll get it sorted out whatever way it goes but the less stress the better all round!
