An unexpected break

Sorry guys, no post today.

Both yesterday and today I was rushed to hospital.  That’s 3 trips in just over a week.

I’m still recovering and it put me back so I never got this post finished. Wednesday’s and Fridays are already done.

I may be slow to reply to comments, have patience with me.

Thanks for your understanding

While I will be reviewing books, I also wanted to review products and services that other writers and bloggers may find useful.

I only review products that I have personally tested, as a confirmation, I was not paid for this post nor have I been compensated in any way.

How to recognise and stop doing busy-work

Edit: this didn’t launch on time as I wanted to check it before scheduling… but ended up being rushed to A&E early this morning and only just got back. Not a great start to the new year 😁
