The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book 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.
What happened this week?
This was an okay week some nice things happened, some bad things happened, but overal it was a nice week. I got some work for Lola’s Blog Tours done and had contact with some authors about upcoming tours. I also got a nice chunk of marketing assistant work done for this month already.
Last Sunday we had an issue with our internet, it was a frustrating day. One moment nothing would be wrong and then suddenly the pages wouldn’t load or if they did it would be incredible slow, like taking minutes to load a page. We called our internet provider and they didn’t knew what was wrong either. Then the internet would work for hours and then be gone again. It was frustrating and I think I double commented on some blogs and forgot to comment back to some bloggers thanks to the issue. I always click open the pages so I know to comment, but as we tried a lot of restarting pc’s and the internet modem I lost some blogs I still had to comment on. Then monday we heard it was a local issue and multiple people in our surrounding had complained as well. Luckily the internet kept working normally after that!
On Monday I went to the doctor for my ears, it turned out the problem wasn’t on the outside like I expected, but the doctor thought there was water behind my ear on the inside. So I got a nose spray and have an appointment tomorrow to check and see if it helped. I also got my form for blood testing, basically I can go the a place were they do blood testing in this city and if I show them the form I can have my blood taken and tested. I probably will go tomorrow morning for that, to have that out of the way as well.
We’re still a bit worried about Pita, the area around were her last tumor was is still a bit hobbly and we discovered a very small lump behind one of her front legs, we’re keeping a close eye on her and probably will pay a visit to the vet this week. She’s been squeeking a lot lately, if we pick her up or if she moves or if another rat grooms her.
And this week was my first Lola’s Kitchen post! I started with a post with general cooking tips and next week I’ll share my first recipe with you! I am so exicted for this feature and thanks for everyone who stoped by and commented!
I also made a new page on my blog for my recipes so you can easily find them all in one place, it’s still a bit bare at the moment and only includes two recipes I shared last year.
And have you seen the amazing banner Michelle from Because Reading is Better Than Real Life made for me for this feature! I am so happy with how it turned out! And I have to thank Michelle as well for pushing me to start this feature, I am so excited for this feature and having a blast writing and scheduling the posts.

Random Picture(s) of the Week
Here’s Smarties, she seem to like the wigwam a lot and ate a new hole in it. I took her and the wigwam out of the cage as it’s a safety hazzard now. And she was content to just keep sitting in there on my desk. She’s such a cutey!
