My life/books I’ve finished
Another Thursday where my support worker couldn’t come this time due to a family emergency She did say that next week she’d come two days, Tuesday and Thursday and that we’d go for a walk too which promises to be really fun and a break from just staying around the house all the time. Earlier this week I have also had a lady from social services come in asking about making plans for how to develop my independence which was also a positive experience even though at that time nothing more was mentioned about the large sum of money we potentially have to pay towards my support workers and we haven’t heard any more about that but we’re all hoping for the best 😛 With this lady I also discussed my desire for house renovation which desperately needs doing and dad has been resistant to not because he’s lazy but because he is an old man and can’t seem to cope with responsibility AND he has had low quality jobs done around the house in the past… I hope with these people’s help dad will be open to change because as I see it its a win win situation but as my support worker has said I shouldn’t get angry with him instead I should feel sorry for him as like she said he genuinely can’t seem to cope… I’ll have to wait and see and hope for the best 😛
As I have said before things seem to be positive at the moment and I hope they stay that way because I’ve come to learn that appreciating the small things in your daily routine can go a long way in terms of positivity which has always been something I’ve struggled with in earlier life. But I hope that a combination of good books, trips out and good relations with my parents can help eradicate any worries of post holiday depression and I know, I know, I need to stop thinking about it if I want to bear it but honestly sometimes it tries to sneak in.
In regards to reading I think I have done quite well because I managed to finish Storm Siren by Mary Weber a lot quicker than I thought I would because it seemed such an average YA fantasy however with good characters. The Muirwood books that I’m getting through at the moment are proving to live up to expectation and I think I will be disappointed to leave this world behind… But most of all I aim to keep trying to get through this massive TBR, stay positive at home and get on well with my parents and try to be tolerant of dad as it seems he might have autism too (many people have thought this over time) 😛
Books I’ve recently added to my TBR
Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd
Like with all the new books I add to my TBR, I hope this will bring something new to the fantasy table and that description certainly sells it well for me. I’ve always loved to find books about people who were created rather than born as this idea resembles my stories and characters quite a bit so it’s always good to look for more inspiration 🙂
The First Confessor by Terry Goodkind
I think I’ll always love every fantasy this author writes! I have tried to get this out from my library a few times but have been forced to return it to make space for ordered books… soon my friend, soon…
The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks
Have always, always wanted to read a Terry Brooks novel and I was told this was the place to start. There have been many good things said about this author and I am every bit determined to try these stories myself. Just. Need. Time. 😉
