The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news. This week my main feel was the struggle is real.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
the struggle is real
November started full of great intentions for me. But thanks to headaches, dark evenings and lack of motivation to read, it quickly disintegrated into the struggle is real kind of week. Somehow, I pulled myself kicking and screaming out of my funk on Wed morning and got back into my exercise routine which helped. Still the headaches lingered on, and I basically got no reading done, apart from audiobooks.
I practised yoga Wed, Thurs, Fri and Sat. So I missed a few days, but I’m realising that yoga 4/5 times a week rather than everyday fits better into my schedule. No guilt allowed though as this is my me-time, and I refuse to get bothered by how long it takes me to do the 30 day challenge.
On Saturday, I indulged in a little online retail therapy. New clothes and a new planner definitely meant my week ended better than it started. I’m writing this Saturday night, and my plan is to cosy up by fire and read my first HoHoHoRAT book – Dashing Through the Snow.

This is my second time borrowing the audiobook of Bring Her Home from the library. This time I’m actually reading it, and finding it fraught from tension. So I’m really enjoying it.

Calling that a wrap on this week. Happy Reading to all.
