This week in my life
I’ve had a week off work and it’s been great to spend some time with my family. I’ve been having lots of cuddles and tickles with my toddler and we took her to the park yesterday, which she loved. We also went to see Deadpool 2 (not with my toddler, I hasten to add) and had a huge Pizza Hut feast. It’s been a really fun week and exactly what I needed.
However, I’ve been feeling under the weather since yesterday; I’m achy all over and my lymph nodes have swollen up. Whatever it is, it seems to have sapped all my energy so I’m hoping it won’t last long.
This week on the blog
Guys, I did it. I actually caught up with replying to comments and visiting back! I even got through my backlog of ‘to read’ posts on Feedly. This is a historic moment.
Next week’s line-up
- Tuesday-Top Ten Tuesday
- Wednesday-Insecure Writers Support Group
- Saturday-On my Wishlist
- Sunday-The Sunday Post
Also, I still need to review Sever!
What I’m reading
I’m really enjoying Ready Player One. I love all the geeky 80s pop culture references! So far, this book seems really unique.
I didn’t actually get any new books this week! This is good news for my bank account.
Links I’m loving
- Top Ten Tuesday: places I’d never want to live (but would make excellent book settings)-AJ talks about some really cool (and creepy) places you may not have heard of.
- This book, written by the homeless, can only be read when it’s cold
- The art of being genuine on my blog (Amber shares her thoughts on blogging authentically).
Before you go…
How was your week? What are you reading?
Sounds like the perfect week! I hope you feel better soon.
It near enough was. I recovered pretty quickly, thanks.
I am glad to hear you had such a restful and enjoyable week with the family 🙂 I’m going to go and see Deadpool 2 tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it! But I am sorry to hear about you falling ill DD: Whatever it is, I do hope it passes soon.
What did you think of Deadpool 2? Yes, luckily my mystery illness passed pretty quickly, just in time to go back to work (typical).
Ready Player One sounds good as I love the 80’s! Have a great week!
Mary my #Sunday Roundup #21!
It was brilliant, I highly recommend it!
I’m glad you enjoyed your time off. I also did a staycation this past week. I think I’ll be lucky to get around to all the blogs maybe once a month. I hope you feel better quickly. I’m off to bed- I work early tomorrow. Anne – Books of My Heart
I love staycations. Going away is great too, but I always come back feeling tired. I like having time at home to rest and catch up with everything. Thanks for visiting, Anne!
My book reading has been slow. I was trying to slog through a free downloaded book called Out of Time by Monique Martin, but she couldn’t seem to decide if she wanted the book to be a romance, sci-fi, or some kind of gangster thriller, so 100 pages in, I quit. I don’t like doing that, but life’s too short.
New task for this read, sift through the titles on my nook and kindle and see what jumps out.
That sounds like a strange genre mash-up. I agree, it’s not worth continuing if you’re struggling your way through Hope your next read was better!
Nice that you had a break and got to see a fun movie as well. We’ve just had a long weekend and it’s been lovely hanging around the house today instead of being at work – I could definitely learn to be a stay at home cat mother (if only I could become independentely wealthy to sustain my lifestyle!)
Me too! I would love to stay at home all day writing and blogging, it’s a shame I have to pay the bills. But I suppose I would turn into something of a recluse if I didn’t work.
I’m glad you didn’t see Deadpool 2 with the toddler. LOL! Hope you feel better soon and you can keep up with your blogging successes!
Thanks. I was back to normal quite quickly. I haven’t done much blogging this week but hope to catch up now it’s the weekend.
I’m glad you had a nice week off work! I hope you start feeling better soon though. I still need to see Deadpool 2. My brother has seen it though and he really loved it.
Thanks, I wasn’t ill for long. Deadpool 2 was great fun, I’d definitely recommend it if you liked the first one.
I hope you feel better soon. Family time and pizza are always nice. So is catching up on replying to comments. Have a great week!
I recovered pretty quickly, luckily. I live for family and pizza time. Can you believe my husband ate THIRTY slices of pizza that lunchtime? I was in awe.
Oh what a fun week! It’s nice to have a week off like that now and again. Hope you’re feeling better!
I pretty much live for those breaks. Yes, my mystery illness didn’t last long at all, thanks.
