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?

I very nearly had a bad disaster on Friday… I left my Kindle on the train on my way back home! I was so upset and angry with myself, and no matter how much poor hubby said: it doesn't matter, it's replaceable etc. I was seriously thinking what to do in regards to reviews,  because the vast majority of my review books are all on the Kindle. Ok, I can still read on my laptop, but I don't take the laptop to work and well, it's just awkward to handle for .

But there is a good ending to this story! The next morning I went back to the railway station to ask (didn't give much hope to it, but thought, hey, you've got nothing to lose….) and it was there! Someone handed it in. I was lucky, that's what the guys from the train company said as well, because the train I had left it in had terminated at my stop, and the cleaner has most likely found it. Phew, I was so relieved. How silly of me, I've never even in all my years of rail travel and commuting left a paperback on the train. 


And - The Football World Cup has started. I don't usually watch football, and neither does my husband - don't understand the different leagues and cups, but we like the World Cup for it's celebration of different countries, cultures, the colourful fans.  

Also - it's Father's Day here in the UK today (not sure about anywhere else in the World? I know it's not in Germany where my dad lives). I saw this quote from Mark Twain on the Penguin FB page today and had to smile:





New: The Coroner's Officer

Busy week, as always. One of the cases I dealt with was a road traffic collision. The unusual thing about it was that a nurse who came across the accident gave first aid and sustained a needle stick injury. Her doctor than contacted us to see if we can do HIV / infectious disease testing on the deceased person. While I have all the sympathy for the unfortunate nurse, we are not allowed to do any testing on the body other then required to establish the cause of death, so we had to say no to her.

Didn't get any books (yes, you did read correctly!) I got offered a few blog tours, but just can't commit as I know I've to lots of review books to read and I don't want to overwhelm myself. It is so hard to say NO though :(
