The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer.

It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!


This week in my life

I’m not sure where this week has gone? I’ve been off work so I haven’t really done that much apart from potty-training my daughter (which is going much better than I expected thankfully). We went to a local children’s activity park on Thursday and had a meal at my in-laws on Friday.

Yesterday was quite busy-after Mini-Me’s dance class we went to the park for a Teddy Bear’s Picnic event which was a lot of fun. Then in the evening, we had a meal out an American-style diner to celebrate my stepdad’s birthday.

This week on the blog

Strangely, I didn’t feel like doing that much blogging this week so I haven’t been that productive. I’ve still been investigating all the errors that keep happening and am thinking of changing hosts but it all sounds so laborious and scary.

Writing update

I wrote over 3000 words on Monday but then I slacked off for the rest of the week. I’m still on track, but a little annoyed with myself for not working harder. I’m nearly at 20,000 words so I’m about a third of the way through now. I seem to spend more time daydreaming about the book than actually writing it though.

I wanted a neat visual way to track my progress so I signed up to Pacemaker and I love it! I can see how I’m doing with various handy little graphs. I love how easy it is to customise. 

What I’m reading

I finished Twisted Tales by Deborah A Stansil, which was very creepy and interesting. I’ve still got a few other books on the go which I hope to finish and review soon. I’m starting to get back into short stories again.

Latest goodies

I’ve been enjoying Some of the Best from 2012 Edition, so I decided to get a couple of other anthologies that were free on Kindle, as well as a crime novel that sounds interesting.
