July Wrap Up

News I finished my astrobiology short course! I am now an amateur astrobiologist. I ended up with a grade of 89%, a distinction, which I’m kind of annoyed about, because that’s only one percent off 90%, which is a high distinction. I mean, I’m still happy with a high grade but it’s annoying when I […]

June Wrap Up

News In the middle of June I saw a picture of a stray cat posted by a rescue shelter and I swear alarm bells went off in my head. My husband and I have been joking about getting a third kitten, but I’ve very firmly said no, as we already have two cats. But I fell […]

May Wrap Up

News So April sucked balls. My grandad, uncle, and a Goodreads friend of mine all died. May is looking much better with my husband’s treatment going so well he was even able to return to work part-time. Which means I’m back at work, too! Wow, caring for someone who is suicidal is HARD WORK. But […]

April Wrap Up

News Last month I explained how my husband’s accidental switch-up on anti-depressants made him suicidal and I had to take time off work to make sure he didn’t kill or hurt himself. Honestly, there’s not much change this month either. He’s still adjusting to his proper medication and his psychologist appointments were too far apart […]

March Wrap Up

News March was really rough for my husband and me. Turns out he’d been put on the wrong anti-depressants for the past month and a bit. The medication made him worse than no medication at all. He clearly needs a very specific med and the pharmacy screwed him over by choosing to put him on […]

February Wrap Up

News My husband got food poisoning just before Valentine’s Day so we had to cancel our fancy restaurant dinner plans and  instead got takeaway from the fancy restaurant and ate it in bed, which is about a hundred times better than the original plan TBH. We’ve also decided he’s going to trial dropping some hours […]

January Wrap Up

Is everyone having a great summer? Or, for those of you who aren’t living in The Lucky Country/the Southern Hemisphere, a great winter? I’m having a wonderful summer, because I have AIR CONDITIONING. AND IT’S AWESOME. News We have a new blog design! Courtesy of Laura from Laura Plus Designs. I thoroughly recommend working with […]

December Wrap Up And Giveaway Winner

News I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Hubby and I went to my parents and ate way too much food and then went home and played with our cats. We really love spending time by ourselves, but we don’t want to offend family by not showing up on Christmas! And the good news is […]

November Wrap Up

News Hiatus So I tried to take November off because 2 years of full-time blogging and reviewing was burning me out and I was extra hurt when my blog was temporarily suspended for violating WordPress.com terms of service. I was doing too much author promotion and not enough original content, which probably also contributed to […]
