Sunday Wrap-Up – October

Each Sunday I will be rounding up my week and linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberley @Caffeinated Reviewer as well as The Sunday Salon meme hosted by the wonderful Deb @Readerbuzz. Do please pop by their blogs and show them a little love 💗.

Life Last Week

We began the week on the south coast, Newhaven to be exact, which is somewhere between Brighton and Eastbourne. It’s a part of the UK we have never explored before but one we have definite plans to return to in warmer weather! (first two photos)

Seaford is a sleepy town just a little further along the coast (next two photos) and a few miles east of that is Beachy Head – Britain’s tallest cliff at 531m above sea level. You can get an idea of that height from the bottom photo – that is a full size lighthouse down there! I had to kneel on the ground to get close enough to take the photo. I did consider laying down to get closer to the edge but there are regular rock falls from this stretch of coastline due to the fact the cliffs are made of chalk, which is constantly eroded by the sea.

Karma is not a!

As an ancient soul working to enhance human empathy Karma has served for millennia.
When her work turns sloppy and leaves her with a bad reputation, the community of ancient souls makes a demand of her. She must return to earth and clean up the mess she made for seventeen-year-old Emma White.

For Karma it’s a rush to be back in a physical body, and life as a junior in high school shouldn’t be a problem for someone who has guided humans for thousands of years. But much has happened since Karma last walked the earth in Ancient Greece. Facing teachers, bullies, parents, and Emma’s crush, Ty, gets complicated when Karma doesn’t have her usual powers and can’t reveal that she’s a soul of infinite wisdom. And by the way, how does one answer a text message?

Ancient Souls is a breathtaking story that is a must-read for everyone who remembers what it was like to be a teenager. It’s witty, wise, and has a fast pace that will make you turn pages all night long.

Looking forward to…

…our next short break away – even though we haven’t booked anywhere yet!

…Bonfire Night

…an extra hour in bed today as the clocks go back.

    1. It was surreal to see it in the flesh – it looked so small! I did have to get on my hands and knees to take the photo – there was no way I could stand that close to the edge, nor is it safe to.


  1. Your photos are great. I have always wanted to visit England. The lighthouse is especially neat. I can see why you are eager to go on another vacation.

    You certainly had a wonderful reading month. Ten books read is fantastic.

    I wonder when our clocks move back. I love the fall back, but the spring forward? Not so much.

  2. Amazing photos – I love seeing them. I noticed about that and our clocks don’t go back until next week, weird. It won’t matter to Lulu, she will want to get up at the usual time no matter what the clock says!

  3. I thought you were going to say the first picture was of the White Cliffs of Dover. I’ve actually been there. I guess many coastal areas in the UK have white cliffs. Or is it just along a particular area? Anyway, the photos are gorgeous ❤️

    1. They are only really found in Dover, in East Sussex (where we were) and on the Isle of Wight, so not that common. We didn’t even realise they were there until we got to the coast, and they are absolutely stunning to see.
