How has your week been? What have you been reading?

It’s so late on Sunday night, I have to be up at 5:45 tomorrow, and I was meant to be getting an early night. It’s safe to say, this rundown hasn’t gone well. So, hopefully you can forgive me for this rushed introduction. Let’s do this so I can go to bed where I belong.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

My week off is nearly over and I’m both looking forward to and dreading going back to work. I’ve been keeping up with the gossip over the weekend and it sounds… interesting (to put it mildly). Thankfully, I’m in on Tuesday, off Wednesday, in Thursday, and at work experience on Friday. Not the worst week I guess. And I’ve still got one more day to relax. Plus, I’ve had a pretty decent week. You catch me after watching Captain Marvel this evening so I’m full of feminist joy. Perfect for a few days after International Women’s Day. It was such a wonderful viewing experience and it’ll be a difficult thing to review. But I’ll get there. Believe me, I’ll get there.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

Today marked my final day at work before I have my annual birthday week off. I hate working my birthday. I know that seeing all my friends would be a great thing but the idea of having to be in work on the actual day is just too much. I think it should be a worldwide policy that nobody has to work on their birthday. Along with standard 4 days weeks. Then workers would be so much happier and less stressed. But, let’s be honest, it’s never going to happen. So, we do what we can to de-stress when we can. And for me, that will involve a lot of reading and watching stuff. Oh, and a super exciting trip to see Captain Marvel, of course. I cannot wait.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

I’m starting to sound like a broken record but I’m feeling awful again. I’ve spent most of the day just lying around in a funk. If the last few weeks are anything to go by, 2019 is going to be a shitty year health wise. At least I’ll have a good excuse to stay in bed reading though, right? I’ve got a bit of catching up to do this month. I’ve only completed one book and that was a 40 page short story. I know February is a shorter month but that’s pathetic even for me. I’m just so tired at the moment that I can’t stay awake long enough. And I’m so slow as well. I’m barely making it through a chapter on my breaks at work. Let’s hope March will fair better. After all, it is birthday month.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

Oh god, what a weekend. Work has been so hectic, I still feel shit, and I’m over it. I’ve also done such a small amount of reading it’s very upsetting. I attempted to do some on my lunch break but I could barely keep my eyes open. I just need a day off. I’m getting to that emotional level of tiredness where I cry over dog videos. It’s not great. So, as soon as I’ve done this, I’m off to bed. I wanted to get a super early night but I, inevitably, got distracted. Need to work on that.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

Not to be too melodramatic, today I’m dying. Okay, so I’m basically just recovering from a touch of the flu so have been in bed all weekend. I’ve been shaky, cold, coughing since Thursday. So, I was kind of delighted to be told that work wasn’t going to open today. I know it’s bad but it did mean I could spend the day in bed. I’m still coughing like I’ve got TB but, as you’ve got to find the positives somewhere, I’m hoping it’s making me sound sexier. In other news, on Friday I had the sheer joy of seeing Boyzone during their goodbye tour. We got my older sister tickets for her birthday but, as we were all fans back in the day, my twin and I were loving it just as much as she did. Singing 90s pop songs at the top of my voice wasn’t exactly the best thing to do with my cough but I don’t care. It was an amazing night.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

So, last week was the first day of my mini holiday and this week it’s been my first day back. What a difference 7 days can make. I’m tired, annoyed, have a headache… basically it’s just shit. But it pays the bills. And, therefore, allows me to indulge my passion for book. Something that I’ve still not been allowing myself to do. This book buying ban is going better than it ever has before. Maybe I’ll be able to stop myself for most of the year and actually read the books I already own. For some of them, it’s about bloody time too!

So how has your week been? What have you been reading?

It feels like ages since I last wrote a rundown… almost like it was last year. Badum tish! Be aware that I do hate myself for that. But it does feel like a really long time since my last rundown. Last week was just a nightmare and then I ended up planning so many posts for New Year’s Eve that it seemed stupid writing a rundown anyway. I don’t think you missed out on much. I was still reading Normal People at the time and probably hadn’t watched anything fun on Netflix. So it would have been a waste of time anyway… just like this week’s.

So how has your week been? What have you been reading?

You know that feeling when you’re pretty sure that you’ve bought all of your Christmas presents and then you remember you still have a lot to buy? That happened to me the other day. I was so smug but I’ve still got a few biggies to sort out. I’ll get it done but it’s a kick in the teeth considering how great I felt. I got my work secret Santa present sorted the day I picked the name out and I’m so happy with it. So happy, in fact, that I’ve been finding presents for other people to give to their picks too. I’m a bloody present buying machine! And, considering how many presents I’ve bought for myself this year, I should know how good I am at picking gifts out.
