Just so you know….I haven’t died….

Hello Hello my lovely readers! Happy New Year!

Yes, I can see you looking at me in that judgemental fashion, raising your eyebrows. I can almost hear the offended tone of ‘Where HAVE you been’. I apologise. Unfortunately, the final year of university is something akin to being tortured with a phenomenal lack of sleep and the creeping fear that the work may, in fact, never end and thus, no time for blogging. However, I am back (cough…to ask for your money) because I have genuinely missed blogging but also…because….I HAVE FINISHED MY CHALLENGE!! woo! Yes, I have finished 100 books. I kind of feel like I’ve been on a mental marathon, and there were times I was fairly certain I wouldn’t manage to finish but I have!

I shall be writing a few blog posts on varying aspects of finishing the challenge but would like to take this opportunity to ask…welll…for your money. It’s not for me! As those of you who have been following for a while know, I started my blog and my challenge hoping to raise money for the charity World Horse Welfare (info all over my blog). So far I’ve raised 251 pounds, but I would greatly appreciate it if you would contribute anything on my justgiving page. Horse welfare might not be high on your priority list but here are some reasons its high on mine:

1. Horses are still needed to support people’s livelihoods in many countries. Unfortunately many of these people do not know a great deal about proper horse care and this leads not only to bad conditions for the horses but ultimately, to a much less capable working animal for the person. World Horse Welfare supports these communities and animals in their work.

2. The lack of high profile is precisely why I wanted to raise money for World Horse Welfare in the first place. Horses are often associated with the very wealthy and it is assumed that horses are usually animals that benefit from this wealth. However, this is not always so, as there are many cases of serious mistreatment of horses within the UK. Dogs and cats that end up on the streets are quickly picked up and cared for. A horse in a lonely field that very few pass will often go unnoticed for a very long time, and this is why we need World Horse Welfare.

3. They’re cute! Cummon!

I would also like to thank those of you who have commented and not stopped following despite a 6 month long absence and those who have joined more recently!

With a big hug for you all!

  1. Ahhh so you arrre alive! πŸ˜› Well actually I figured as much because you’re still fairly active on your Goodreads account!
    But yes, I know how you feel – the final year of university is rough. Especially if you’re an idiot like me and you go back to do further degrees, and thus face your final year more than once, hahaha (but seriously, never again. Unless it’s to become Dr Watson, essentially). Point is, I can totally understand your lack of blogging, between that and your manic amounts of reading. Even I slowed down towards the end of last year a bit, due to a bit of travel and such.
    Anyway, I shall contribute something. If you don’t hear from me saying I have done so in the next few days, feel free to nag me. Honest. πŸ™‚
    Look forward to seeing more blogs from you hopefully, we’ve missed you!
