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 wasn’t a good week. I mentioned in my last Sunday Post that my boyfriend was sick. Well Sunday evening I started feeling sick as well and have been sick for basically the whole week. I think we caught the flu or something and it definitely was a bad one as my boyfriend and I have been feeling miserable for most of this week. So yeah that was my week basically. My boyfriend went for a Covid test as well to make sure it wasn’t that, but that came back negative luckily.
Unfortunately being a business owner I couldn’t just take time off work and still had to do a lot of work. Especially as this was a busy week with 5 tours running, a media kit for next week’s tour that had to go out and the last of this month’s assistant work that needed to be done. Somehow I got that all done and only had to shove a few less urgent tasks to next week. Two tours I wanted to get live this week I didn’t get to, but hopefully I can get those live next week.
I am still tired from being sick and from working while being sick. I did take some extra time off and made sure to sleep more as it seems I needed that. I got some extra reading and gaming time in during the evenings when I felt way too sick to work. I am glad I am starting to feel better now, so hopefully next week is a better one. I really hope to avoid getting another sickness like this for a while as it was a really bad one.
What did I read this week?
Both were great read. I picked up Stitch X for Murder as I was in the mood for a cozie and I really enjoyed returning to this series. Due to my sickness it was a bit hard to follow at times, so I decided on a contemporary romance for my nest read and grabbed Shoot the Gap. That was a great choice and I really enjoyed the romance and the way it wrapped up the series.

Thanks! I am feeling better now luckily, it really was a nasty flu.
I’m so sorry that you were sick and had to work while sick. That really sucks. 🙁
Those oat bars look delicious!

It really was tough to be sick and have to work. I am glad I am feeling better now. The oat bars are really good!
Glad it wasn’t the Covid, but regular flu can be the pits, too. Hopefully, this week will be a good recovery week and you can be all caught up on your work. Glad you had some good books and games to be comforts when you didn’t feel good.
Have a good week, Lola!

Yeah this definitely reminded me how nasty the regular flu can be, but I am glad it wasn’t the Covid. This week I managed to catch up on my work, so that’s good :).
Oh no! So sorry to hear that you’ve been smitten:((. It’s grim when you’re forced to work through when you’re feeling like nothing on earth… I hope the coming week is a much kinder one, Lola:))
Thanks! It was though to have to work while feeling sick. Luckily this week I felt better and could catch up on work.
Ugh, I’m so sorry to hear you got sick as well. So many of us who quarantined during the pandemic had a great year without colds or flus. And now they are all back. 🙁 I hope you’re feeling better now!

The quarantine time was great to avoid the flu. I am annoyed we both sick this year now that things have opening up. And Covid cases are rising again too, luckily we didn’t get that yet. I am feeling better now 🙂
