Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 19

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.

New Good DeedsDuring 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.

August 24th – Lent some books to my mother-in-law today who enjoys reading. Have been having a clear out and made a collection of items for the charity shop.

August 25th – Sent out a group e-mail to everyone on the Romancing September Tour to start creating some Buzz and support for the tour and all the lovely authors who are taking part and hoping to spread the news about their books. Finished reading Frenzy by Mark King.

August 26th – Completed 30 pictures that can be used on Twitter during the Romancing Tour. Walked round to a friends house to drop off a birthday present and picked up litter on the way home. Started reading Dark Water by Jan Ruth

August 27th – Left a tip with the barber who successfully scalped my son this morning. My book review today on the blog is for The Landland Chronicles by Dallas Sutherland, a good fantasy for younger readers. Helped out another friend with the bus timetable for college next week.

August 28th – Agreed to read and review two more books today, my list is getting rather long, but then I love reading. Added two more books to the book review team list this evening. Drafted up a guest author post for Mark King for October and have been liaising with reviewers and authors over book review books. Good deeds received, lots of lovely people are getting behind the promotion of the Romancing September tour which starts on Monday. Thanks for all the tweets and posts.

August 29th – Saw a gentleman drop a £5 note today, picked it up and returned it to him. Reading has been really slow this week, I’ve had 24 working hours of accounting book work to complete.

August 30th – It’s been really windy over the past day so there has been lots of litter blowing around. Picked up rubbish this morning and again this afternoon.

Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 18

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.

New Good DeedsDuring 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.

This week I’ve been doing the following;

August 17th – Was at the park by 9.15 this morning to play some tennis with my son, nothing fancy just an hour of whacking the ball back and forth and over the fence and laughing at ourselves. It’s been windy and the overflowing bins have been spreading their rubbish about, so I had a good opportunity for a good deed and I picked most of it up, some of it was spread too far and wide to get.

The book review team are working really hard and I am getting lots of reviews in ready to post out on the blog, plus I’m getting quite a few requests for books to be added to the team list.

August 18th – My books arrived from Amazon today, some to share with family and friends and one particularly for me You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Her books are truly inspirational, she teaches you to change your words and thinking because every ache and illness is a die-ease of the body and a reflection of our fears, guilt and criticism. She helps you turn around from disbelief in yourself and your life to one filled with love. It’s not a quick fix nor an easy process but one which I want to make.

August 19th – I love reading articles on the Kindness Blog and this morning I read about a 99 year old lady who makes a dress everyday for little girls in Africa. Her ambition is to make her 1000th dress by May next year to coincide with her 100th birthday. Little Dresses for Africa is also a charity.

Posted my review of Patriot by A.S. Bond

August 20th – Finished off the last draft post for The Romancing September Across The World Tour. Am a complete bag of nerves today, oldest child is sitting her driving theory test this afternoon.

Hooray she passed the first part of the driving test, we just need loads more work for the practical.

August 21st – Picked up litter while I was out for a walk. Finished reading The Soul and The Seed by Arie Farnam a really good fantasy thriller. Sent a birthday card to friends in Australia.

August 22nd – Found the new bus timetable for when college starts again in September for my oldest child. Copied the info and sent to another friend. Today I’ve been reading Stranger at Sunset by Eden Baylee

August 23rd – Noelle from the book review team sent me a review of the Britannia: The Wall by Richard Denham and MJ Trow we’ll be posting the review next week. Drafted up my post for Eden’s book and posted my review to Goodreads and Amazon. Started reading Frenzy by Mark King
