Sunday Post 70; It's Monday, What are you reading? 56



The Sunday Post - a chance for a chat and a catch-up with other bloggers is hosted by Kimba, here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? is run by Kathryn, here: https://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/

Sorry for the double post today - I remembered that I had a review languishing in my docs and wanted to post it before this one went up.

Let's see ... nothing outstanding, I don't think, but that means nothing bad, so there's that. I went quizzing with my team on Wednesday night and we won, so that was fun. 

Spawn and I have been walking home from school a few days a week - I don't have my licence and (let me just say, if you have teens, encourage them to get their licence; I should have back in the day and I didn't and now ... blergh. anyway) - and so we've been walking home rather than rely on buses and taxis, the cost of which racks up very quickly.

It's a pain mostly because it's a good 30 minute walk, but on the other hand, we talk, which is great, and we also slay dragons. So there's an up side and a down side. My friend also suggested we could hunt Pokemon to help it go faster.

I missed out on an interview for a job I really wanted (archive assistant) but I also have a job interview this week for a part-time short contract job at the hospital. So cross fingers, prayer, good thoughts ... I will take all of it. I'm a big believer in the power of positive energy, wherever it comes from. :)

I actually managed to put up two book reviews (okay, so one was today, but who's counting), and I STILL haven't finished my latest awesome ladies post - hopefully that one will go up this week.

I'm also hoping to get another mobile game review up this week. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet; I'm trying to avoid doing match-3 games but there are so many. Maybe I'll do Gordon Ramsey's Dash.

For what I'm reading ... I caught half an episode of a CSI Miami repeat on TV and it put me in the mood for something procedural, so I got a CSI (Vegas) novel out of the library. It's pleasant and largely forgettable and very easy to read. I'm also re-watching Hannibal from the beginning because I never watched to the very end of season 3 for some reason. So my procedural mood is satisfied for now.

What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?

  1. Good luck w/ the interview! And on the quizzing win- congrats! I have some friends who do that every month, it's a music trivia thing, and they're amazing frankly.

    Have a good week :)

    1. Thank you! There's a pub here that does a quiz every week - we can't all go every Wednesday but my team does show up in various iterations every week. :)

  2. Even though I have my license if the weather was good I would walk to school to meet mine. It was a lot of fun bonding as we walked home. Sorry about the missed job, and good luck with the interview. Have a delightful week Maree!

    1. The bonding is fun, true. It's a bit of a distance, though. Thank you! :)

  3. Best of luck on your interviews :) and a daily walk is good for your health! After I stop working, me and mom often go out walking for an hour or so, just so we could get some exercise :)

  8. I hope the interview goes well for you. I got my driver's license only a little before my younger brother got his. He was eager, I didn't care. I'm really glad I got it young. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
