Welcome to my weekly updates on my challenge to do at least one Good Deed a day for a year. This has been inspired by Judith O’Reilly and her book “A Year of Doing Good”
See the book here on Amazon
28th July – Have been doing some work over the weekend so that we are ahead as we go into the working week. Dropped the work off this afternoon and cleared the desk ready for my colleague who works on Mondays.
29th July – Agreed to do another book review today for an author. Launched my competition to win a Kindle Cover from Joules Clothing, it’s not a massive prize like a car or a holiday, but it’s a start.
30th July – Posted a Guest Author post for Charles Yallowitz here on the blog in preparation for his new book launch tomorrow. Drafted up another post for Briana Vedsted who is also doing a book launch tomorrow.
31th July – It’s book launch day for the two authors mentioned above, so I’ve sent out my posts. Finished 2 books today and will be sorting out reviews.
1st August – Sent birthday wishes to one of my book reviewers. Had a child over to play for the day, took us all out to the park for some cricket, then dropped the child home again. The August Issue of Fleet Life goes online today, check out my book reviews for some lucky authors on page 18. www.fleetlife.org.uk, click on the online directory and go to p.18
2nd August – Shopping for birthday presents today, then out to tea with friends, taking homemade cookies with us. Also gave out some of my rice and pasta winnings.
3rd August – Came down with a stiff shoulder last evening, spent hours trying to get comfy during the night. Lack of sleep makes me a grumpy bear! Had an early appointment at the hair dressers, but still made sure I left the girls a tip. (Tipping is a hardship for some Brits!) Spent a couple of hours reading, could really do with a nap!
Well done – sounds like a lot of authors have benefited from your generosity this week, may it all return to you 100 fold:-) And still there’s time for cricket…love it! Blessings, H xxx
Thank you for your lovely kind words, I love reading your own weekly updates too.
I think it’s wonderful everything you are doing to support authors, as well as the kindnesses you show others. You set a very nice example 🙂
Thank you, some weeks, I do wonder what I’ve got myself into!
Yep, you’re busy 🙂 But you do show from your posts that these acts of kindness can be small gestures that mean a lot to the recipient.
