Back to Blogging…

Sorry, it has been so long! I’ve been meaning to return for some time. Obviously, with all that is going on in the world, now is a good time to blog.

Deciding what to write isn’t as complicated as you would envisage. Focusing on what you can do rather than what you can’t, is my intention. We are, at the very least, social distancing or even self-isolating. Or, as I am, somewhere in between.

Topics will be the usual MISHMASH. The content will be suggesting and exploring ideas rather than telling you what you should be doing! The aim is to be as helpful as possible, in these troubling times.

As the whole business, is so worrying at present, I aim to inform, entertain and maintain wellbeing. The content will be researched, informative but also just fun.
Here are some topic which I will be investigating:

Health, Fitness, and Wellbeing
Gardening
Cooking and Food Shopping
Podcasts
Books/reading
Social Media, online education and virtual tours/life
Photography, films, telly, etc.

Hopefully, my new chatty approach will be interesting and if you’ve any ideas let everyone know in the comments.

Books I’ve enjoyed during Spring 16

Recently, I’ve enjoyed a couple of books after reading several mediocre ones.  This has encouraged me to spend more time reading and I decided to blog about them…

Follow You Home by Mark Edwards

This is a gripping psychological thriller and I was hooked immediately.  This was handy because I was enduring a cramped, long haul flight and it kept me occupied.

It’s about a couple, Daniel and Laura, who are on a back packing trip around Europe.  When they fall asleep their passports and money are stolen.  They are then put in an unbelievably difficult situation when thrown off the train in the middle of a Romanian forest area and the action develops from there.

This creepy, unusual tale keeps you guessing with plenty of twists and atrocities in Romania that continue to haunt them when they return home.  Quite a unique, frightening tale and I can recommend the book.  In fact, I shall now read more of Edwards’ books.

Perfect by Rachel Joyce

This is a very unusual book and quite different from anything else I’ve read.  It is about the life of two young lads and their lives as children but it also weaves a present day tale.  It is all about connections and the nuances of personality and what is reality and what is imagined.  It embodies the feeling of how people can influence each other by innocuous stories and actions.  Again, I enjoyed this book because it was so different from anything else I have read.

Please share any books that you have enjoyed and thank you for reading my blog.  Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter: @mishmashmedia_
