Sunday post 33; It's Monday What are you reading? 21
The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and is a chance to chat and catch up with the week, and It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Kathryn here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/ and does what it says on the tin. :)
I didn't do a post last week - I hadn't blogged at all, and didn't feel like I'd done anything particularly noteworthy. I did manage to - finally - do a short reviews post, and I'll be doing another one of those this week.
Spawn turned nine last Sunday, and on Saturday we packed up the car for a road trip to Dunedin which was enjoyed by all. Spawn was happy with visits to a gaming store and KMart, and I was happy with Lush and the University Bookstore - lol.
We didn't have a party on the Sunday, which he was quite happy with. We had lunch at McDonald's and he was perfectly content to be allowed to play video games all day. He declared it the best birthday ever, so there's that.
Work has extended my contract by four weeks, and I'm still covering for a woman on maternity leave. They're preparing for a Big Move to new (smaller) premises but from tomorrow I'll be able to work from home. Sadly, I feel little attachment to the place now - most of the people I worked with and enjoyed working with have moved on and the nature of the beast has changed so much. So I'm clocking in, doing my work and clocking out again, essentially.
I'm still doing the #30for30crafting challenge on instagram and it's going pretty well. I've moved on from the peonies for now, to Circe, who is the next slot in my rotation. But it's been nice, the past couple of weeks, settling down for a bit of stitching while I watch TV. Usually I tell myself I'm too tired, but so far so good. *fingers crossed*
As for what I'm reading - I've embarked on Marvel's Civil War. The arc was on special on Comixology and I know I'm reading it out of order but it doesn't seem to matter *too* much. It's certainly interesting. I also still have Perdido Street Station on the go, although I haven't picked that up for a while (sorry Jodie!) and Royal Assassin, though at the moment it's on the backburner and I'm reading Vision in Silver, book three of the Others series by Anne Bishop.
What about you?
How's your week?
