Rae Recaps… January 2021

Thanks for stopping by!

So other than reading the main thing I have been doing in January is home schooling. It’s definitely an experience and a challenge! There have been bad days and good days. Even on the bad days there have been little moments that make it all worthwhile. I love to see my children’s creative side. Whether it be creating a story or designing and drawing. It’s so lovely to see how they light up when something engages them! There have been 2D shape hunts, alien pictures, Stone Age stories and describing volcanoes. So I’ll think of these moments if our day doesn’t necessarily go to plan! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

I have also been colouring which is helping to relax me and having lovely Callie cuddles. Speaking of Callie I thought I’d share (spam) a few photos of her on each recap. Seeing as she’s so cute 🥰😂

Now onto…

It’s been a great month for reading. I guess that’s because at the moment reading is the perfect escape.

This month I managed to read 14 books which is pretty good.

Sadly no audiobooks this month. I would usually listen to them when I’m walking home from dropping my children off at school and again on the way to pick them up. I think I might have to start listening in the evenings instead.

Only 2 blog tours this month, both were brilliant books although very different 😂

A Waltz with the Outspoken Governess by Catherine Tinley

The Last Thing to Burn by Will Dean

The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon

Her Banished Knight’s Redemption by Melissa Oliver

A Match for the Rebellious Earl by Lara Temple

The Rags-to-Riches Governess by Janice Preston

Unexpectedly Wed to the Officer by Jenni Fletcher

How did I do? Bingo Reading Challenge 2020

Well, I guess that’s it for today and for January. Take care and very best wishes.

    14 books is fantastic! I just about finished 13 myself after completely The Hearts Invisible Furies this morning! I refused to let that one slip into February lol! I am home-schooling two kids as well at the moment and it can be so hard! I hope we won’t have to do it for too much longer because even though I love seeing how clever and creative they can be it really does stress me out on the days they don’t want to do their work!

    • Thank you! ❤️
      Yes, I would have been the same and tried to get that last book in 😂

      Those days are tough, aren’t they?! It really isn’t easy and it’s no good for anyone if we are all stressed. I usually get them to read for a bit which is better than nothing. Although sometimes even that doesn’t work 🤷🏻‍♀️ x

  2. Callie is so cute. Looks like a great reading month even with everything going on. I am doing virtual school with my granddaughter. I spend most of my time asking her to listen to her teacher and watch the class, then I get to help her with her work. She is only in kindergarten, so it is fun, but tiring.

  3. There are amazing books you have read in January, Callie is so adorable – you could never spam us with pictures of her she is too cute. Your doing a great job homeschooling, I was homeschooled for years so I know it’s not easy on the parents. Huge respect for those like yourself who have had homeschooling pushed on them. xx
