Project 365 2018 Week 2

Week 2 of Project 365 2018 and it occurs to me I may have some new readers who don’t know us. So, I’m Sarah, married mum of three big kids – two boys aged 16 and 14 and a girl aged 11. I don’t post recognisable photos of them on the blog, but my blog is still all about family life.

What I read in 2017

I love nothing more than reading. It’s how I unwind and escape from the frustrations and boredom of everyday life. Left to my own devices, I wouldn’t need a TV and you wouldn’t catch me watching videos online. I’d much rather read a book than a blogpost or magazine or look at social media (although I do those things a lot too). I read every night before I go to sleep and every lunchtime when the kids...
