Sharing Saturday: Alternate Advent Calendars - Miscellaneous

  I love advent calendars, however, opening little doors just for a tiny bit of chocolate isn’t as appealing as it once was.

I use different apps to keep me entertained and my mind off pain if I feel ill, or I’m stuck waiting in a line/for an appointment so I like to have a range of things available.   FBReader Not in anyway related to facebook, FBReader is an app I have on my android tablet which lets me readRead More →

Monthly Goals November 2016

    After seeing several ladies over at Geek Girls + Blogger posting their November goals I decided it would be a good thing for me to implement. Hopefully it will help me keep up with things, as well as also helping me to realise that I am getting things done. That I am being productive even when I feel like I’m not. So here are my monthly goals for November!   Blogging I’m planning on upping my blogging game this month in several different ways.
