Hello, my lovelies and welcome to my September 2021 monthly wrap up post.
What have I been up to this month?
September is BACK TO SCHOOL month. 😝 It’s been a busy time. We’ve already taken the class on a residential trip – and survived! 😂 My mum had her 76th birthday and we all went out for a lovely meal together. Hubby and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. We didn’t go out but did have a delicious Chinese takeaway.
The ratio of audiobooks to Kindle has been 7:1 this month and I think the reduction in screen time will be a permanent thing too. The number of ocular migraines (also referred to as retinal migraines) that I’ve had this month can be counted on one hand! Woop!Woop! The only downside is the sporadic blog hopping. Sorry.
Coronavirus COVID-19 is still lurking about and keeps mutating! However, here in the UK, our immunisation programme is still going great guns. Over 61% of us have now been fully vaccinated (me included!) WoopWoop! The UK government are recommending that we all still take precautions, although the National restrictions have been lifted.
In bloggish news…
I updating of old posts is an ongoing process. However, it hasn’t been a priority these past few months due to my migraines. All of the reviews on the blog are SEO friendly. Thank you Yoast SEO plugin. 😉 However, there are still some older ones that I need to add to the UBB plugin.
Please continue to let me know if any pages, posts or links throughout Flora’s Musings either don’t open or you have problems with. Thanks.

~ My Current Reading Challenges ~
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I take part in the Goodreads Annual Reading Challenge but that’s not the only one I take part in. I thought that I’d use these regular wrap up posts to update you on my progress in all the challenges that I’m taking part in …
2021 Audiobook Challenge
Last year I joined the 2020 Audiobook Challenge. I enjoyed it so much that I’ve signed up again this year.
Audiobooks have become my main format since reducing my screen time this year. I’ve already achieved my original goal of 50+ audio listens, so I’m now trying to reach the 75+ level. Wish me luck and check out my progress on my Audiobook Challenge 2021 page.
I’m linking up to The Sunday Post – a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer.
(See rules here: Sunday Post Meme)
Don’t forget to hop along to some of the other amazing blogs taking part in the Sunday Post.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my September 2021 monthly wrap up post.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, stay safe and healthy.
Bye for now,
