This beautiful book arrived today from Goodreads. I love the cover. It's very clever with a keyhole cutout & the picture behind. It's premise sounds very intriguing & I hope I get the chance to read it soon. With the recent influx of books they'll be fighting to be read!

How has another month disappeared? At least this one has been productive for my writing. Here's my Bridget style update.
Writing: I returned to pen & paper this month and I've written in the region of 10,000 words. It's not all typed up yet & it's in need of an edit for all the overused words, but at least I've found a way to get back to the WIP.
Health: My weight loss has reached 10 pounds and I'm hoping to reach a stone by the end of next month. Happy Days!
I managed to do my first Good a Food recipe. 11 more to go!
Reading: At long last I finished the book I was reading on my kindle. I really didn't get into it so it's taken me a while. I've now started reading A Cornish House by Liz Fenwick and I'm already enjoying it.
Competitions: It's been books, books, books this month! I wanted to win a fiction book and I've won 5 this month from Goodreads. That'll keep me in good stead given my current reading pace! I only have one item left on my achievable things to win which is a family day out, so I'm going to add two more to the list. First, an item of clothing. Second, an evening out for my husband and me. These are both things that I would love, but have little money for now my maternity pay is ending. So if I could win them, it would be fabulous!

Today I received another book from Goodreads. Having not been picked for the first month of the year, this month I received 3 emails in 3 days! This is the second of those books to arrive. I best get reading!

At the beginning of the year I set myself several challenges. One was to cook a recipe from every copy of Good Food magazine this year. For January I picked the Mexican chicken stew with rice & beans.
How it did look!It was a fairly easy recipe. My only alteration was using left over roast chicken whereas the recipe suggested chicken breasts which you then shred. It was fairly hot which I like and the yogurt worked well to reduce the heat. It's definitely a recipe I would do again.

Today the So Baby Hamper arrived that I won after sharing a post on Facebook. There was a mistake with the delivery date at first but having contacted the company they rearranged delivery for today. I'm looking forward to the girls trying these as one of the twins got bad nappy rash with jarred products. It will be interesting to see how she does with these.

In the post today I received another book from Goodreads: Cut Dead by Mark Sennen. It sounds pretty grim, but it's the kind of crime novel I enjoy. Read far too much romance of late. It's on the TBR pile but if my brother reads this he might claim first read.
