Sunday Post #73: Hogwarts Express POP



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.

This week has been one of those were I wonder where the time went! Crazy really! Last weekend we had a great time on our trip to The Hague. The hotel was gorgeous, the room was very luxurious, we had some great food and drinks, it was a lot of fun with our friends and I had a fun time shopping. If you follow me on Instagram you may also have seen my Hogwarts Express POP I got. I love it!! It was just a great weekend, and it went by way to fast.

Monday and Tuesday it was back to work for me. Traffic has been crazy lately and I’m missing the warmer days when I was able to go to work with my scooter. I do seem to go through my audiobooks pretty fast though, so that’s one positive point about these traffic jams. 
On Tuesday after work one of my colleagues went home with me for dinner and to watch our Wedding Pictures. We had a really fun evening.

Wednesday and Thursday where my days off. I went to visit my mom, which was a lot of fun like always, and on Thursday I did some blogging and listened to Christmas music. I just love this time of year!! BTW.. Happy Thanksgiving to my American visitors. I hope you had a great day.

And from Friday till next Wednesday I’m working again. But I can’t complain. My husband and I almost have a week vacation. I can’t wait.

Books & Blogging:

This week I did some work for Maureen’s Books Promotions. I have two Book Promo’s that are open for Sign-Ups. One is for December 14th, and the other is for a 10 daylong event in January. If you guys have a spot free I would love it if you could sign up. (Just click the pic below for more info.)


I managed to do some reading too this week. But not nearly as much as I wanted. I definitely need my vacation to come soon, so I can have reading marathons.

  1. It sounds like you've been busy having fun. I had a four day weekend and just stayed home doing some reading and watching some movies. Did manage to get some yard work in as it's been sunny and warm.

  3. Glad to hear you had such fun in The Hague - it sounds a fab trip. And what a lovely souvenir:). I know all about traffic - there are now TWO sets of roadworks with lights between me and one of my teaching jobs which eats into my time far too much. I hope your week is a good one, with plenty of good books, Maureen:) My Sunday Post - https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/11/26/sunday-post-26th-november-2017/

  4. The Hogwarts Express funko is gorgeous! *.* I really want to get my hands on it, but shipping costs make it so expensive.

    Happy readings & Wishes of a great week.

  10. It must be awesome to be able to zip in and out of traffic on your scooter. I ride the train to work because I cannot deal with the congestion and there is really only one way to my job. =/ Glad you had an awesome trip and a few relaxing days off.

    1. Being able to go on the scooter is definitely great. Unfortunately it's now just to cold and wet outside, but when the weather gets better I'll be back on there. :D

  15. Glad your trip was so great! It's so nice to feel luxurious every once in a blue moon. I'm so glad I decided to sign up for your upcoming tours! I've SO been on the fence about committing to anything lately with what all is on my plate and what little time I have. Like now, writing this at 4:07 AM when I should have been asleep hours ago because I have to get up in two hours and I am 99.99% my evaluation will be tomorrow. C'est la vie. I hope you don't work too hard before going on your vacation!

    1. That's so good to hear Charlie. I hope you'll enjoy participating! ;)
      Oh dear.. only two hours of sleep? Sigh.. I hope your doing okay today. Good luck with your evaluation!
      Have a great week and happy reading!
