Where did July go?!
Like... I know sometimes time goes quick, but really?!
I think it's the heat.
I spent most of the month slouching around the house, trying to cool down, and being a generally not-nice person to be around.
Me + heat = grump monster! Lol.
So yeah - the main thing about July was that it was too f**king hot!
I'm hoping that it doesn't heat up again any time soon.
The Northern Hemisphere is literally burning, and Trump and all the other climate-change denying a**holes need to wake the f**k up and get a goddamn clue!
In better news, my grandmother is once again out of hospital!
At the moment, she's doing OK (fingers crossed!) and is back to dancing around the house, so that's definitely a good sign!
Thanks to everyone who's sent me support and love over the past few months, and thanks so much to everyone who's read my post on Parkinson's - if you haven't checked it out yet, please do, it means a lot!
In blogging-ness, I took part in a roundtable Q&A over at Poetry Books YA this month on negative reviews.
Check it out if you can and send Dani some love!

...I actually hope this is bot-traffic 'cos otherwise I think international spies might be using my site to send messages to each other! 😅
