Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

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

In terms of reading, I’ve done super badly this week. I don’t know what’s gone so wrong but I just haven’t been in the mood. I’ve not really slept well all week which hasn’t helped. Too tired to concentrate on the pages. But I’ve had a relaxing weekend. A relaxing but non-bookish weekend, unfortunately. Still, there’s been a lot of family time. My sister brought my niece over both today and yesterday which has meant lots of cuddles. Babies still kind of scare me but I’m getting used to it. Or at least less terrified to be left holding one. It’ll take small steps.

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

I’ve eaten so much this weekend. It’s not even funny. Yesterday, I went to a local food market with a friend. We ate bratwurst and churros. Then I bought the biggest slice of custard tart for that evening. And I still have a massive slice of cheesecake to eat. Then, today I made brownies for a friend but, because the first batch went wrong, I had to make them again. And, after I’d made the first batch, I used the leftover peanut butter chips to make pancakes. I’m fucking stuffed and I still have my evening meal to eat. I think I’ll have to go for a walk to make room. I was meant to be using today to read. I’m just going to be in a food coma all evening.

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

Is it just me or are the weeks getting longer and the weekends getting shorter? Maybe it’s because I don’t have any leave from work coming up but my workdays are dragging along. And this weekend went by in the blink of an eye. Although, I had a great time on Saturday celebrating the 1st birthday of my friend’s son. She threw a BBQ and it was super nice. Hot but nice. I definitely got sunburnt but it was worth it. The three of them had a great time. But today has flown by. I wasted a few hours finishing my current read this morning and then spent some time taking photos for the week. Then I’ve just wasted my time. Just like normal. Classic Sunday.

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

This weekend has just flown by. Yesterday was a long day that saw me traveling to and from a friend’s wedding. It took 2 hours to get there, 2 hours back, and a lot sitting around waiting. Most of the guests were staying over so could go and wait in their hotel rooms. Not me. Plus, I couldn’t drink anything most of the night for fear I’d need loads of toilet breaks on the journey home. But the actual wedding was lovely and a lot of fun. The bride looked beautiful and it was a really emotional day. But I’m tired and have done nothing all day. Well, except get angry with a random comment on my Instagram. After ranting about how badly written and pretentious a book was, someone commented that they “liked complicated language” and might give it a go. To me, this suggested that they hadn’t read my caption properly and were suggesting I was too stupid to understand the book. I wasn’t. I was suggesting the writer was too stupid to write a book. What is this awful shaming thing that goes on with bookish people? It’s pathetic. If you want to waste your time reading a book with nothing to say then fine. Just don’t suggest that I’m not a good enough reader for a book you’ve not even seen.

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

Urgh, back to work tomorrow. How has this week gone by so quickly? I’ve had a really lovely week though. I’ve seen friends, spent time with my family, and just relaxed. I’ve also had a stressful time trying to find a dress for a wedding next week. I hate shopping for an occasion. It’s all so stressful and sizes don’t make any sense. What is it with clothes companies not factoring in people with larger chests? According to the first result on Google, the average bra size in the UK is 36DD. So, why are we still making clothes assuming that it’s still 34B? It doesn’t make sense. In order to get a good fit on the top, I have to suffer through a larger lower half. I hate it. And I’ve bought so many different dresses this week. All our delivery men and my local post office must think I’m insane with the number of parcels I get and send back.

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

I started my holiday this weekend and I’ve already used my days wisely. Yesterday I spent the afternoon with a friend. We ate donuts, watchedΒ Spider-Man: Far From Home, and then ate loads of food. It was bliss but I was stuffed by the end of the night. Today, I woke up, took some photos, read, and had a nap. It’s been all go. So, if the rest of the week goes like this I won’t do a great deal but I’ll be well-rested. And hopefully well-read.

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

I’ve got a holiday coming up in a week so, at the moment, all I can think about is getting through the next 5 days. The only problem is, I have to try and write a load of articles about football in those days. Something I know fuck all about. So, it takes a lot of research and writing obviously takes time. I don’t mind having to do it but my boss is really keen to get it done. I’m not sure he understands how long it will take to get it right. It’s a really good job that I’m so fast at typing. Touch typing is hardly an important skill these days but I guess it has done quite well for me. So well, that my boss even asked me if I’d ever thought about being a secretary because of it. Don’t worry. I bit my tongue and laughed it off. Even if the feminist inside me was screaming with a white-hot rage.

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

I’m probably not going to be doing a reading wrap-up post this month because I’ve been terrible at reading. I’ve only managed to finish one book and that was Detective Pikachu. I don’t know how it’s gone so badly for me but I’ve just not been motivated. And it’s not that I haven’t got enough good books to read. I’ve currently got about 4 on the go and I’m enjoying them all. It’s just I can’t seem to open the pages. I’ve been pretty lazy. I guess I’m just so tired at the moment. Thankfully, I just have to get through 2 more weeks of work and I’ve got a week off. It’ll be the last break I have before our busy Summer period. Maybe I’ll get some reading done then? Or maybe I’ll just waste my time doing nothing again.

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

So, you may have noticed that I took a brief leave of absence last week. It wasn’t something that I’d planned but it felt like I needed to. On Monday, 5 days before her due date, my sister gave birth to her first child. She went through a lot to get to this stage so it’s something she, her husband, and our whole family have been eagerly awaiting. I mean, I know pretty much everyone eagerly awaits a new baby but this was more than a typical amount. I think we’ve all been so anxious that the whole pregnancy has flown by without us really daring to get too excited. Which means, when the baby arrived early, we were all ready to let that excitement out. And, in doing that, I haven’t really stayed on top of reading, watching, or blogging. I hope to make up a few missed posts this week but I also have shit to do this week. We’ll see how it goes.

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

So, I’m writing this Sunday rundown on Thursday night before I head down to London. As I write this I haven’t seenΒ Hamilton but as you read this I will have done. As such, I’ll pretend it’s Sunday and give you my feedback. Oh my god! It was so amazing! I have no words to describe just how good it was! It’s an experience I’ll never forget! I mean, the chances of me not enjoying it are pretty slim. I know it’ll be weird without the voices I’m used to hearing on the soundtrack but seeing it all happen in front of my eyes will be amazing.
