The Sunday Post



This is is Meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and here are the rules.

It is your chance to re-cap your bookish week, what did your review last week, any new purchases, what will be coming up in your blog next week or generally anything you feel you would like to share with the blogging community.



So, what did I do last week?


The week was insanely busy at work. I knew that I will be off on vacation from Good Friday onwards for 2 weeks, so I had to leave as clean a desk as possible - files to get ready for court, reports to send out, summons witnesses etc etc etc. So I stayed in the office every day from 7am to 8pm. Insane hours this week but….. I got it all done and now I'm not going back until May 6th jippeeee. 

But it meant that that I didn't get as much time on the blog as usual and didn't really read and comment on any other blogs - sorry folks. 

Easter is a quiet and relaxing time for us. We don't have any family in this country, so it's only going to be hubby and our 3 children. I will cook roast leg of lamb on Easter Sunday. 

And than it's getting all exciting, as next Thursday the 24th we are flying off to Lanzarote / Spain for a 1 week vacation in the sun (hopefully). But hey, even if we don't have very hot weather, it's still going to be nice just to relax. I have 3 books packed for the vacation:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

They are all 3 books which I wanted to read for a while and never got around doing it. So I don't even mind the 4 hours in the plane :)
