Sunday Post 90, It's Monday! What are you reading? 75
The Sunday Post - a chance for bloggers to have a chat and a 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/
Last week was a bit more lively but certainly not in the way I wanted.
I'd gone out at lunchtime on Wednesday for a bit of a walk and to get some money out, when I got a call from Spawn's school - he'd just thrown up everywhere. Now, J is working in a different town at the moment, so he couldn't pick him up. I don't drive, and I'd also given my house keys to my sister as she needed to do laundry.
So I headed back to work and both the receptionist and I tried to get my sister on her phone to no avail. I packed up my bags, let my team leader know what was happening and was all set to make a dash for a taxi. Luckily, his teacher offered to drive him home once she knew I was there.
Then the receptionist bursts into the back office and says, "She's here!"- lol. My sister, luckily, had come back at just the right time to return my keys. (Note to self: get a spare key cut.) So she drove me home, and the teacher in due course showed up with Spawn, who was miserable for the next two days with a tummy bug.
Luckily it was only a 24 hour thing, I think. I kept him home the next day anyway and J stayed with him for that one.
Give me a quiet week in which nothing happens - lol.
I have tomorrow off - I had to take a company leave day before the start of April and I accidentally took Oscars day off, so I know what I'll be doing tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.
I went out to the pub quiz with my friends last Wednesday. I did feel guilty because of Spawn being ill but he was home with J so I struggled on. We came third.
I wrote a couple of review last week, and I'm going to do the same this week, but I haven't finished any books, so I just have a couple of movies to review - Rough Night and Get out.
I'm still slowly getting through Wizards and Glass - it's my lunchtime book so it's going to take a while anyway. I also started City Stained Red by Sam Sykes, and Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda, which I've been meaning to read for a while, and it looks like a reasonably quick finish, so I'm not entirely getting bogged down in Tomes.
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
