My 2020 Reading Challenge: The Second Quarter ðŸ“š

Sorry guys, this is a bit late… but I thought I would still post it as I want to keep up with the quarterly posts.
I’ve been a lot busier since I started back at work.

April/May/June


So, that bloody pandemic is still happening… I am however back at work and have been for two and a half weeks. It is definatly nice to have a bit more normality. My work schedule isnt 100% back to what it usually is so I’m trying to make sure I still use this extra time to get through all my new books that I bought for the COVID-19 outbreak.


Lets have a look at what I have read during this next quarter… we’re halfway through the year already, madness.


Books I have read:

The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

The Secret Seaside Escape by Heidi Swain

The Switch by Beth O’Leary

The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling (3/4, but I’ll leave it on the list as its a biggun’)

The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer


Heidi Swain is one of my favourite authors so I was so excited to have this book in my second quarter. I had pre ordered it so that was a very welcome arrival.

As you can see I have also been enjoying Beth O’Leary’s books this quarter. I started with ‘The Switch’ as I have seen lots of recommendations on Instagram and then my friend at work read it and suggested it too. I really enjoyed it and consequently bought her second book, which I enjoyed even more.

‘The Family Upstairs’ I found really gripping. I literally couldn’t put it down by the end, its funny how some books grip you like that! I had this book at the beginning of lockdown so I can’t believe its taken me this long to get around to it.

I have even more books planned for the third instalment, so check back to see what I’ve been reading.

Or, check out my Insta ‘RoseannesBlog’ as I post regularly on there too.


Until Next Time,

#blacklivesmatter -How can you help? Pt 2

𝕋𝕙𝕒𝕥’𝕤 𝕎𝕙𝕚𝕥𝕖 ℙ𝕣𝕚𝕧𝕚𝕝𝕖𝕘𝕖 𝕣𝕚𝕘𝕙𝕥 𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕖.

‘Well I’d never do that’ or I don’t see those things’ isn’t enough.
The fact is you could, as a white person, and get away with it. Its disgusting.

White privilege is an unseen, unconscious advantage.

You are automatically one step ahead because of the pigment of your skin.. because that is the only difference, we are all part of the human race but our skin pigments vary.. everything else is the same, literally everything.


ℝ𝕒𝕔𝕚𝕤𝕞 & 𝕤𝕪𝕤𝕥𝕖𝕞𝕒𝕥𝕚𝕔 𝕣𝕒𝕔𝕚𝕤𝕞

Racism is usually carried out by individuals or groups.

Systematic racism is when groups use their power to instill biased values.

(These definitions are adapted from online research.)

This bias within the very systems and fabric of society create a culture of privilege and biased views. When this racial bias results in actions this is when racism becomes a active part of society.

If you are biased you may believe that a black person is more likely to be the culprit of a crime. When you use your position to emphasize this view you are actively being racist, eg: you call the police when a black person is doing nothing that is illegal, but you call anyway, because of the colour of their skin.

This systematic racism within institutions such as the police means that once you’ve made that call that person is unlikely to be treated fairly.

We all know the tragic stories of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless innocent people. It’s sickening.

Can you imagine being terrified everytime you see a police car? No, white privilege.

If you committed a crime and it was between you and a black person, would you be deemed more trustworthy, more innocent regardless of the evidence? Yes, white privilege

𝑫𝒐𝒆𝒔 𝒊𝒕 𝒎𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒇𝒆𝒆𝒍 𝒖𝒏𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆?

𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗱.

That is nothing really is it!
The least you can feel is uncomfortable. Because it’s nothing compared to actually being subjected to it.

ℙ𝕣𝕠𝕥𝕖𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕟𝕘/𝕒𝕔𝕥𝕚𝕧𝕚𝕤𝕞

You don’t get it?

It’s because you dont have to shout to be heard.

It’s about fighting for a right/s that most people already have as basic human rights… why aren’t black people afforded the same rights?

The system twists these rights so that they aren’t applicable for everyone. Especially in the US. They seem like they apply to everybody, that everybody is free, but they aren’t, not if those in power don’t want you to be.

The Thirteenth Amendment (to the United States Constitution abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime) being a prime example… you are free unless we can pin a crime on you then you are at our mercy.

So stop and think about how you would feel if you knew you were always going to be on the back foot.

Wouldn’t you want to fight against that?

Yes riots can turn to property damage… I suppose it depends if you equate property damage to human lives? If a bit of rioting is all it takes for people to not care about the ‘Black Lives Matter’ then they were never really on board with it in the first place and thats part of the problem, it’s all too easy for people to walk away from it, black people don’t have that luxury, it’s literally their life.


𝔹𝕝𝕒𝕔𝕜 𝕃𝕚𝕧𝕖𝕤 𝕄𝕒𝕥𝕥𝕖𝕣

All lives cannot matter until black lives matter.

The voices that need to be heard at the moment are that of black people because they are increasingly being targeted. I’m talking about the ‘all lives matter’ debate here; If a house on your street was on fire, would you expect the fire service to arrive and point their hoses on all the houses?
Of course not.
While they would, rightly, argue that all homes matter, in that very moment they’ll focus their attention and expertise on the house that’s burning down.

All lives cannot matter until black lives matter.


So, what can you do?

Educate yourself. Speak up. Stand together.

👊🏿👊🏾👊🏽👊🏼

Here is a link to the petitions, sign, sign, sign. It’s so easy.

Petitions


ℍ𝕠𝕨 𝕔𝕒𝕟 𝕪𝕠𝕦 𝕖𝕕𝕦𝕔𝕒𝕥𝕖 𝕪𝕠𝕦𝕣𝕤𝕖𝕝𝕗?

Netflix and Spotify have some brilliant resources that you can watch and listen to.


𝔹𝕖 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕔𝕙𝕒𝕟𝕘𝕖 𝕪𝕠𝕦 𝕨𝕒𝕟𝕥 𝕥𝕠 𝕤𝕖𝕖 𝕚𝕟 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕨𝕠𝕣𝕝𝕕 🌍🤜🏿🤛🏻

It’s so important that we keep talking about these issues.
It’s important that we not only use our platform to do this but to educate ourselves at home too.

Black Lives Matter Is A Movement Not A Moment.

I am by no means an expert, after all I’ve lived my life in a very privileged position (even if
I haven’t always realised it) so I am doing my best to change this & educate myself.

Hi guys 👋🏻

I hope this finds you well.

I was going to post a Biscoff baking recipe recently but I wasn’t 100% happy with it (it just means I’ll have to make it again 🤪)

So, instead I thought I would share my fail proof Banoffee recipe because it is A-mazing!

Also, it’s super easy, and always a cried pleaser (if you have to share it)

Day in the ï½Œï½‰ï½†ï½…🌿

Hi guys 👋🏻

Over on my Instagram (roseannesblog) it was decided, via a poll, that my next blog post would be my ‘Day in the Life’

I am going to do a Part One and a Part Two, a mini post for each one.

Part One : Quarantine DITL

Part Two : Back to Work DITL


🄼🅈 🄱🄰🄲🄺 🅃🄾 🅆🄾🅁🄺 🄳🄰🅈 🄸🄽 🅃🄷🄴 🄻🄸🄵🄴

6.30 am Get up! (Begrudgingly) and do our ((Bounce)) trampoline workout.



7.15am I make my breakfast smoothie after ((Bounce)) and I either drink it as I get ready or I leave it in the fridge to take to work with me.

I try and pop something into the slow cooker before I leave for work. I am loving it as it saves any faffing when I get back from work.

8.30 am – 3.30pm Work, Work, Work!

4pm Once I’m home I get changed into my Pjs or comfies.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this!!??

I usually use this time to wind down a bit. I’ll watch a bit of TiKTok, read or watch some tv with a snack.

6 30pm Dinner.

Some meals we have been loving recently are Mexican dishes such as Nachos or Tacos. We’ve also been loving sausages, burgers and BBQ chicken.

8pm onwards

I usually do either a guitar lesson or a little bit of practise at this time. I don’t always do a full lesson, it just depends on my mood.

I also either read or play/chat on House Party with my sister.

11pm onwards Bed time 😴

I probably should go to bed earlier but I’m so rubbish at it, I can’t switch off. Plus, the lockdown got me in bad habits as I didn’t have to get up the next day at a particularly early time.

I usually read or listen to podcasts before bed. I try to limit my screen time.

At the moment I’m listening to the ‘Showmance: Glee recap edition’ podcast with Jenna Ushkowitz & Kevin McHale.

This is awesome, especially if you are a fellow gleek.

I have just finished ‘The Switch’ by Beth O’Leary which is awesome! I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a book to read.

What have you guys been up to in the evenings since we can’t go out?
