Yet again I’ve had a hiatus, and I don’t think any of you would blame me for it right now. Not only have we been in unprecedented times as a planet, but on the 3rd of April my cat Tigger had to be put down. These two things combined have meant that my reading has fallen behind and therefore my book reviews are behind also.
Tigger, my family’s beautiful tortoiseshell girl, passed from kidney failure just after 6pm on the 3rd of April. She was really struggling and unable to even walk in a straight line. She looked like she had been drugged. It was the only fair thing for us to do. Our vet was so lovely and made the process as nice as it could be, especially with the social distancing that had to be put in place for everyone’s safety.
In terms of the rest of life, my mum is now at home all the time. So I’m not alone in the house so I’m not reading as much. It’s just also a struggle to read right now, I’m not entirely sure why but getting lost in a book just feels impossible.
However. I’m trying to come back. I’m trying to read. Sometimes, personally, forcing myself into it can help so that’s my next aim and we’ll see how that goes. I might go dark again, I might keep posting consistently. We’ll just have to find out. But thank you for sticking with me through all this and I hope you’re all as healthy and safe as you can be.
Stay safe, stay inside, protect the health service.
By now you’re used to me disappearing for a bit, one reason or another has lead to me taking breaks from the internet many times before. This break has been pretty short, but it might happen again and I wanted to pre-warn you guys this time as there’s a sad reason.
My cat, Tigger, who is 13 years old, has been diagnosed with kidney failure. We thought we would have some time with her, but sadly last week we had to rush her to the vets and her potassium levels are really low. We don’t think she’ll be here too much longer, we don’t want her to be in pain.
I know that with the pandemic currently going on that a lot more people have a lot worse issues than me right now, but Tigger is a part of our family and it’s been devastating to watch her decline. So far she’s hanging on. I’ll try keep you guys updated about it but if I drop off grid that is probably the reason why.
I pre-schedule a lot of my blog posts, and a few of my YouTube videos. So there’ll be some stuff still popping up. But thank you with sticking with me and hopefully we’ll all be in happier times in the not-so-distant future.
Hey guys! So there is going to be a wee bit of a gap between this and my next blog post. If you follow me on other platforms then you’ll likely know that I’m currently doing a Masters degree (in Geological and Environmental Hazards if you care) and right now is crunch time. I’ve had a little backlog/schedule of posts to be going up for a while, but I review my books as I read them and I haven’t read anything since as my thesis is taking up the majority of my time.
My thesis should be finished up by mid-September and my last assignment finishes up on the 20th September, so there should hopefully be some new posts coming in by October, and maybe even some more videos!!! I’ve missed doing this so so much but this Masters is the most important thing in my life rn (seriously, my so is in hospital after breaking 4 ribs and puncturing their lung but can I go visit? Nope! Need to work – well… he’s there at time of writing… I really hope he’s still not there by the time this posts…but anyways)
For those who have stayed with me I am so so grateful, knowing that I have you guys whenever things get a little too rough has been amazing. To those who have just found me/dip in and out, I hope you enjoy the increase in content in a few months and that my little backlog of posts and videos has been entertaining!
Thank you again, now it’s time to go write some more about a volcanic eruption from 1944. If you can guess which one it is comment below!!
