If you’re an avid reader on a budget, you’ll find loads of free and bargain books on this weekly book linky from Beck Valley Books. Here you’ll find a great selection of pre-loved reads plus all the new releases about to hit shelves and Kindles, all downloadable from

How are you all this week?  For us, it’s been a week of doctor’s appointments and just generally back to the grindstone.  I don’t know about you but I’m not sure the allotted 10 minutes is really long enough to spend with your doctor!

This time it was the hubby’s turn to go and, in complete contrast to me, he hasn’t been for years!  It’s always a worry when your partner isn’t well though and men are truly terrible at going to the doctor.  Luckily the husband just had to be assessed for medical insurance.  For me, it’s usually routine check-ups for my underactive thyroid.

I’m still loving everything about Autumn and my thoughts are not only turning to Halloween but to all things Christmas, particularly budgeting for the most expensive time of the year.  You can find some great budgeting advice in this post.

There are already signs of Christmas appearing in our local shops and I am planning the return of Ollie, our Elf On The Shelf.  You can find some great ideas curated on my Pinterest board for all sorts of Elf On The Shelf naughtiness.

From This Week’s Selection

We’re also planning to finally get to grips with all our outstanding DIY projects to get the house ready for Christmas.  There never seems to be enough time though.  The husband insists on trying to do it all himself – anyone else have a partner like that?  I suspect that I have quite a bit of cleaning up to do too, if I’m to compete with Mrs Hinch who seems to be everywhere this week.

If you’ve a break in your own cleaning routine (ahem), you can find your own free and bargain books from Beck Valley Books on this link.

I hope you caught my review of the fabulous motivational book by Davide Di Giorgio entitled “Being Unapologetic, Empowering You to Become an Influential Speaker and Visionary Leader”.  If you didn’t, you’ll find it here.  Enjoy!

Have a great week!
