The Sunday Post #44: Harry Potter



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its a chance to share news ~ A Post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Life:

This week I’ve been feeling much better after the situation from last week. I’ve been catching up on sleep and my braces-for-a-view-weeks have finally come off. This totally made my week. I worked the evening shift on Tuesday, which was crazy busy and worked two dayshifts on Thursday and Friday. 

Some exciting news came Wednesday, when I heard I was chosen to be a Nursing Ambassador. Shortly it means I won a free yearlong subscription to a Dutch Nursing Magazine, I’ll get information and posters so I can share them at my work and I will be getting invites to go to nursing conferences in exchange for an written blog/article. I’m super excited and I think it’s pretty cool. I’ve never really written any nursing blogs or articles, but I think I can do it.

Saturday morning I went to the Harry Potter Exhibition with my mom. To say it was cool is a total understatement.. It was amazing! It was very crowded which was a little disappointing because you buy tickets so you can go in at different time slots. Unfortunately no one checked if people were also leaving, so the time slots didn’t really help. But I did manage to see almost everything and take some great pictures. I wasn’t able to visit the shop because it was so crowded, but it also meant I couldn’t spend more money. Which probably is a good thing. Great day! I hope I can go again one day!

My Sunday will be spend blogging, reading and spending time with my man.

Books & Blogging:

Slowly on I’ve been catching up on my reading again this week. I also tried to visit everyone who visited my Sunday Post last week. But in the end I just didn’t get enough time. But this weekend I’m free, and I’m planning on Sunday Posting right away. 

I’m still having a lot of fun making my Weekly Meme: My Favorite.. If you haven’t heard about it please visit my page here. I’d love for you to join up!

  9. I am glad you are feeling better, Maureen. And congratulations on becoming a Nursing Ambassador! How cool! The Harry Potter Exhibition sounds like so much fun. I am glad you had a good time despite the crowds. I loved visiting Hogsmeade at Universal Studios Hollywood, but it was so crowded! I know that's different than the exhibit you went too--but it goes to show the popularity if the series is huge.

    I hope you have a great week, Maureen!

      Have a great week and happy reading!
