Sunday Post 75; It's Monday, What are you reading? 60


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

Okay. Up first. *Clears throat*.

I GOT THE JOB.

The one I interviewed for a couple of weeks ago.

Well, actually, I didn't get THAT job, but the hiring manager said I interviewed so well, that she offered me one of the other positions that they had coming up with the company. So I start on October 24.

And, I have to tell you, it is a GREAT relief. I still have some battles - mostly related to childcare since J and I will both be working fulltime and I likely won't get paid till about three weeks in.

BUT.  A JOB. I HAVE A JOB.

I have three weeks to work out the rest and surely in three weeks I can come up with something.

What else. As you can see, I got 0 blogging done last week, despite having good intentions.

Something, something good intentions.

But on Wednesday I worked at the paper I proof pages for sometimes for a few hours, and Wednesday is also quiz night (we won) and on Thursday I volunteered for a school trip, so blogging took a bit of a back seat.

What else.

I finished season three of Hannibal and GGRARRRRGHHHHH. That means, it was great. Like. So great. And gory and horrific, but mostly great and I wish there was a season 4.

Up next is season 4 of Game of Thrones as I slowly and surely catch up. I'm also reading book 4 but I'm not very far in because I keep getting distracted.

The Girl With Seven Names came back up on the library's ebook reserve list, so I'm back into that one again, and I also started Contact by Carl Sagan, which I'm greatly enjoying so far.

I'm still doing the #30daysofreadathon challenge on instagram, and seem to be sort of keeping up with it so far.

It's school holidays here now - spawn has the next two weeks off so I expect we'll be doing some hanging out before I become a salaried person again in a few weeks. He's excited about me starting work because he believes it will lead to him getting Lego Dimension packs - lol.

The library is having its annual sale to cull withdrawn books, and I'm planning to take spawn to that on Tuesday. I fully expect I will come home with books, even though ... I don't need more books.

I think that covers the highlights.

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

    1. Thank you! I am enjoying it - I like the quietness of it, given that so much of sci-fi is so loud. :)
