The Sunday Post #57: Slow & Steady



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 was one of those that flew by without me really noticing. Not a lot has happened, other than that I had to work the dayshift Wednesday till Friday, and this weekend I have to work two nightshifts again. 

On Monday I had a free day and went to the office of the ‘Nursing’, a Dutch magazine for nurses. I was asked to help them test their new website, and I must say I really enjoyed doing that. It was fun, and different than my normal job. And as a thank you I got a really gift card. Definitely a nice treat.

Not much to mention about this week really. I had a lot of traffic jams after work again, so I can’t wait for our scooter to arrive. It would be nice to not have to wait in traffic every single day. 

Ow.. and hopefully our wedding album will finally arrive this week. We did receive the pictures online already.. Gorgeous!! I just love watching them!


Books & Reading:


Blogging and reading wise it has been a slow week too. I was really tired this week, so I went to bed early a view evenings which really shortened my reading time. I hope to catch up next week. I did finish the first Harry Potter book, which I’m re-reading for the Wizarding World Book Club and I already re-started the second book. I figured since I read only a chapter or two a day I can start already. 


And not to forget I reviewed a great new book 'Summer's Lease' by Carrie Elks. I loved it!!

  9. Your wedding photo is gorgeous! So happy! I hope the album arrives soon. I'd be looking at it all the time, too. I hate traffic - I can't do it. I start getting shin splints. Your trip to Nursing offices sounds fun!
