Back at the start of the month I set my self a 3 part challenge for October and I am pleased to say I succeeded (sort of). Yay for me!
1. Blog More. I wanted to post at least 1 if not 2 ‘proper’ blog posts a week over the course of October on top of my 365 project posts and I managed a total of 11 which is a pass. Especially impressive considering I was away on holiday for half-term week and had no internet access.
2. Read At Least 2 Books. This is where the ‘sort of’ comes in. I read one and two-thirds. I finished Pale Demon and got very close to finishing Forever but I didn’t manage to fit it in before I went away and the opportunities for reading when sharing a caravan (and bed) with both Tori and Arthur are precisely non-existent. When they weren’t running us ragged we were collapsed in a heap somewhere sleeping!
3. Cook At Least One New Recipe. Now here I excelled – I cooked LOTS of new things this month. This is partly down to my random urges to bake and also to the wonderful veg boxes we are now getting – I have to start finding things to do to use all the yummy veggies!
So one fail but one super success – that equals out, right?

I missed last month…oops…
So, Hello October and your very confused weather! My Personal Challenge for this month? Try to get back on top of my blog, finish at least 2 books and cook at least one new recipe.
I neglected Carole Finds Her Wings over September aside from my 365 Project posts and I missed it. I just wasn’t really myself last month and lots of things suffered for it – I didn’t cook as much, read as much or blog as much amongst other things. So this month I want to try and fix those things with my 3-part challenge.
1. Blog more.
I want to aim for at least one, if not two, blog posts a week aside from my 365 posts. By that I mean posts with words, like this one. Any two – be it a meme or an original post.
2. Read at least two books.
I have just started Pale Demon by Kim Harrison so I am aiming to finish that and then read another one after it. I am thinking it is either going to be Forever by Maggie Steifvater or The Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind. but it could end up being neither of those because I have so many books in my TBR pile that I might pick another one at random in the end!
3. Cook at least one new recipe.
I have petered out on my meal planning too and have been cooking all the old standards that I used to with little variation so this month I want to cook something shiny, brand new and different at least once.
Fingers crossed October is a better month than September was and I start to get back on track with everything. I’m fed up of feeling fed up.
