Sunday Post 96, It's Monday, What are you reading? 81
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/
It's school holidays here now, and I've taken a few days off in the first week (the break two weeks long) so Spawn isn't stuck in a school holiday programme the whole time. He's not looking forward to going into the programme on Thursday, but as the loving and caring mother I am, I pointed out that he could either do that, or we could not pay our rent and eat. It's not ideal, but it is what it is right now. He's going to be too old for the programme he's in at the moment in May as they only take kids until they turn 11, so he'll be switching after the holidays anyway. Hopefully a change of scenery will help. The struggle, etc.
What else has been happening? I had Thursday and Friday off and instead of the two days of blissful nothing I intended, I ended up going to a friend's for part of the day on Thursday, and I had a bank appointment on Friday. It wasn't all bad though. I treated myself to lunch in town and had a bit of a browse, two things I don't get to do a lot of now as my office is juuuuuuuuuust a little bit out of the centre of town and I like a leisurely browse.
I finished Blood-Stained Tea by Amy Tasukada yesterday, and really enjoyed it; review coming later this week. I also watched Clash of the Titans which, erm. Review coming later this week as well.
I started Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch today, which seems promising. Still working on Wizards and Glass, and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet as well.
I don't have a lot of plans for the next three days. Hang out with Spawn. Maybe venture out of the house for a bit if the weather doesn't crap itself everywhere, which is a distinct possibility. Most likely we'll stay home and watch a lot of Netflix. Maybe read some. Usual holiday time stuff. :)
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
