Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.
During my week I’ll also being updating you on My Kindness Challenge which I’m also doing. I read about a new challenge to make the world a better place to live in. “Speak Kind Words, Receive Kind Echoes” see the inspiration on The Kindness blog . During my learning process I’m donating money to charity for my slip-ups to make me work harder to achieve results. I earn no money from any of my book reviews, so having little to spare should focus my mind.
September 28th – A busy day, drafting blog posts full of book reviews, and liaising authors with readers. Wrapped presents and sent thank you cards to other people. Plus fitted in a couple of driving practice sessions for my daughter and her friend who are learning to drive.
September 29th – Back at school this morning, last Monday the school had a day off, but I’m back with my readers today. Took some old shoes to the school for a re-cycling collection that they are having for this years Harvest festival.
September 30th – It’s the last day of Romancing September, I can’t believe it’s all over for another year, although we’ve got people interested in next years tour already I believe.
Have just walked into town, it’s a beautiful sunny afternoon, picked up loads of litter on my route. Now for some reading.
October 1st – The need arose to walk to town again, and once again I was on litter patrol, making small steps towards tidying the place I live in and making it a better place for others to enjoy.
October 2nd – A morning visiting my Aunt and Uncle whom I haven’t seen for a couple of years, where does the time go? Another Christmas arrives and we swop cards saying we must see each other more often. Well I was determined to visit before another Christmas arrived. I went bearing gifts of delicacies to have with coffee and books for their new young Grandchildren. We carefully trod around the estranged family subjects and put the world to rights promising to stay in touch.
October 3rd – My first book review post for Brook Cottage Books goes out today as part of a book tour, Seaside Dreams by Melissa Foster
October 4th – A visit to our Aunt in the lovely Cotswold’s today. Helped her with her new lap-top and her latest toy, her ipad (She’s 85) Just needed to do a few tweaks and get the kids to show her a few tricks on the ipad and she was off again, buzzing with what she’ll do next. Helped her with lunch and the clearing up. She is such an inspiration I want to be as with-it as she is when I’m her age.
