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 week went a bit better than the last one, but a lot of the things we are dealing with still aren’t resolved. After someone looked at our kitchen sink that is clogged they said another company had to resolve it, but it didn’t get put through correctly so only late this week we got hold of the correct company and they will hopefully resolve it next week. We had someone look at our boiler problem this week and he could only partly resolve it, so we need another appointment for that as well. My boyfriend couldn’t visit the doctor till next week, this is for a test they want to do to see if they can figure out what caused the concerning side effects he had from his new medication. So a lot going on and none of it got resolved yet.

On the bright side it was my birthday this week, I didn’t do anything special, but I had a decent day. I got some money for my birthday that I plan to spend on some books.

Work wise it wasn’t the most productive week, but I still got a few of things done. I put the sign up post live for a new review opportunity. I also worked on a new blog tour that goes live next week. And I wrapped up some assistant work for one of my authors.

What did I read this week?

    Aah I’m sorry all these issues keep swirling around, but hopefully the next week will bring some resolutions your way! And happy birthday! I’m really starting to enjoy calm birthdays where I just get to chill, rather than trying to plan anything big. Your books look great, the title ‘Minor Inconveniences for Annoyed Pixies’ made me laugh! I hope you have a lovely week 🙂

  2. Side effects from meds are so common for me that I take few of them!
    Happy birthday, Virgo. Have a good one. My birthday is the next weekend.

  3. Fun to get book money for your birthday. Belated best wishes, Lola. Hopefully the plumbing and boiler concerns will all get met this week and you’ll have productive work days. And, definitely hoping the doc can get your boyfriend’s med situation sorted out.

    Have a good week, Sophia!

    • I was happy with the book money, now the trouble of deciding which ones to buy. The plumbing finally got sorted, but we still need to book the second appointment for the boiler.

  4. Urg! The business with your kitchen sink seems to be going on a long, long time… Let’s hope it’s resolved in the coming week. I hope you enjoyed the Lindsay Buroker audiobook – I love her writing, which got me through the worst of my long covid fatigue. Have a better week, Lola.

    • I think it’s been almost 3 weeks now before it got resolved, so many various issues that caused it to take longer than it should. I really like Lindsay Buroker’s books and enjoy her audiobooks, I plan to grab the spin-off series in audio as well.
