The Sunday Post #68: A Packed Weekend



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:

Last weekend I finally was able to catch up on some sleep and this week it was back to work again. But I definitely felt so much better. It was a busy week with work from Monday till Friday but it was all good. The week was busy, but not too busy. And since the weather was very nice Monday till Wednesday I was able to take my scooter to work. And that means no traffic jams. What definitely makes me very happy!

On Friday night my husband and I had a dinner date with one of my girlfriends and her boyfriend. It had been a while since we did something with just the four of us, and it was a very fun evening. After dinner, we went to this café were we had some drinks. We laughed a lot and so hard my stomach hurt. It was the perfect evening to start the weekend.

Saturday, today, was also a busy day. I had to do some shopping in the city and it took a lot longer than I anticipated. When I came home I was super excited to see the new ‘Harry  Potter: A History of Magic’ book finally arrived. It’s a gorgeous book! But unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of time to look into it. I’ve planned some time for that this Sunday.

A lot of the following afternoon was spend helping my husband with repairing the water tap. Sounds like an easy thing, but it took hours to get it fixed. Nothing fitted the right way and it was very stressful. Especially since we weren’t able to put the water back on. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to use the toilet during the night. But thankfully it worked.

Saturday evening, we went to my mom’s house and had a nice dinner with her and her boyfriend. And Sunday, we have to wake up early to go to my little nieces baptism. Definitely a busy weekend!

Books & Blogging:

Last weekend Maureen’s Books Promotions own website went life. I’m super excited about that. I’m still working on it, but I’m happy with the way it looks so far. If you’re able to visit, let me know what you think. ;)

I also updated my Pinterest account. I’m still not really good with it, but if you’re on their let me know and I’ll follow you! I'm slowly getting better! ;)

This week I definitely had some more reading time and I hope to get some more Sunday afternoon. I also managed to blog a little every evening, which is my goal to make the rest of the week a little easier.

  3. I need Harry Potter: A History of Magic in my life. I'm just waiting for the price to drop because the illustrated editions can be a little bit expensive.

    Happy Sunday! I hope your nieces have a beautiful baptism.

  9. What a busy week! I plan to catch up on sleep, too. Last weekend was spent running here and there and everywhere. I slept for a good number of hours the last few nights and woke up exhausted and fatigued, like I had a hangover (impossible since I don't even drink). That is how I feel every time The Man and I work on projects around the house, or when things break - like the TV this past summer. Just moving the old one into the garage and mine from the bedroom into the living room was horrendous. I would rather just hire someone than deal with the hassle and anger and hurt feelings. I hope you enjoy your new HP book! So exciting!
