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?

I wasn't a very good blogger last week, didn't manage to put up all the posts I wanted to, and didn't comment as much as I would like to. Thursday and Friday I didn't feel to well - migraine type - and went straight to bed at 7pm when I got home No energy for anything else. Feel better today, but still not 100% 

The Football World Cup is not going too well for England, in fact they are out of the competition I think. I'm not very passionate about football (IMHO there are other things to get passionate about!). But it usually is always a nice atmosphere in pubs and clubs and even in the streets with people having BBQ,parties etc when England was playing. That all seems to be gone now. People don't want to know about the World Cup any more. Which is a shame, because I also enjoy other countries and especially their colourful fans. I've picked Spain, Russia and Belgium from a hat for the sweepstake, so let's see how they do. I believe Spain not doing to well…:(



New: The Coroner's Officer

The coming week I have a big case in court which has taken almost 2 years to come to court. It is a case where 3 persons have died in a club. They have all died from drugs overdoses. The issues were with the club - should they have better drug searches to prevent drugs getting into the club, and also the facilities at the club should have access to emergency services in case someone gets ill and should have 1st aiders at the scene.

This week at The Coroner's Officer

Finish / Start

Finish

  • The House of Kingsley Merrick by Deborah Hill (Kingsland Book 2)
Start

  • The Heir by Deborah Hill (Kingsland Book 3)
(I'm really starting to get into the series now which is a family saga starting in early 1800's, spanning many generations and historical events, and now in Book 3 we are on to 1930+ and I can't wait to see how it continues.
