The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – little donkey

December 3, 2017 meme, The Sunday Post 30

Welcome to The Sunday Post, 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 we attended a craft fair at The Donkey Sanctuary and I wanted to bring home a little donkey, or two!

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

Little Donkey

Every year, we frequent the craft fair at a Donkey Sanctuary, and every single year, I long to bring a donkey home.  Of course, we don’t have enough land for that, but that doesn’t stop me wishing.  The Donkey Sanctuary do great work rehoming and caring for older donkeys whose owners have died, or are now unable to care for them as they deserved to be cared for.  Basically it’s all the cuteness!  The sight of so many donkeys together just makes my heart happy. Of course I’m sad they ended up there, but glad they are living the good life now.

The Christmas Book Bloggers Tag

This week, I created my first ever tag!  Guys, I loved writing and answering it, and would be over the moon if you joined in.  If you love Christmas, or just want to get in the festive mood with a bookish twist, then this is the post for you.  So TAG, you’re it!

A Day off Work

Lately, I have been moaning about working long hours (due to an extra seasonal job this time of year), however this week I had Monday off.  It started with a lie in, a yummy brekkie with all the calories, then I gave my neglected house a good scrubbing.  Next I wrote my Christmas cards, and did my last bit of Christmas gift shopping.  Finally with a clear conscience, I lay on the sofa, watching cheesy Christmas movies, and munching popcorn.  Even better I had time to read too.  All in all, a pretty successful day off.

Books I have received to review:

 

I’m ridiculously excited about The Maid’s Room. Set in the blistering heat of Singapore, The Maid’s Room follows the lives of two Filipina maids.  Sisters Dolly and Tala who are working hard to send money back home, and British ex-pat Jules who has left her job as a midwife to move to Singapore with husband David.

Books I have bought:

Friend Request was on sale on Amazon.  As a book blogger, I couldn’t let cyber Monday pass without an unnecessary book purchase now could I?

Library Haul:

Lighthouse Bay is an audiobook that I snagged in the library.  Lately I’m loving fiction set in Australia, possibly in an effort to block out our cold, dark winter days.   In addition, lighthouses fascinate me, so I grabbed this historical fiction.

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

    Sounds like a pretty good day off! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it. And the Donkey Sanctuary sounds great- nice that there’s a place to take care of animals like that. I imagine I’d want to bring one home too if I went there. Thanks for sharing it.

    Have a great weekend!

    Ow… Donkeys!!! I love them! I totally get that you would like to bring one home. I do too.. but living on our balcony probably isn’t something for a Donkey. LOL!
    Your new books look great. Friend Request is on my TBR.
    I’m off checking your Christmas TAG!! Happy reading! 😉

    The donkeys are cute! I’m happy they have a sanctuary. Your Monday sounds like a wonderful day off! Hope you enjoy Friend Request. 🙂

    What a perfect day off, from beginning to end! Accomplishing things…and nurturing yourself. I especially love that bit about watching cheesy Christmas movies and munching popcorn.

    I am also drawn to The Maid’s Room. I do love that cover, and the story sounds very tempting.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog. Have a great week.

    Awe the donkeys are so cute. It is so good to hear that there is a charity for them. Glad to hear you support them.
    This weekend totally got away from me and I didn’t post a wrap up this week. You week sounds like fun. Have a good week!

    The donkeys are really cute 🙂 didn’t know people did that. Where I live, I guess, donkeys are not that common? So I wouldn’t imagine there being a care house for little donkeys, like cats or dogs 🙂 but it’s good there is!

    Oh, you created your tag? That’s so cool 🙂

    Oh, and thanks for sharing my post!

    The Maid’s Room sounds really good. I’d love to read that! Lucky, good catch.

    Have a great week 🙂

    Wait! Donkey Sanctuaries are a real thing!? That’s amazing (and thanks for sharing the pictures!) My Husband and I want to get a small hobby farm someday and we’d love to have a few animals – maybe a rescue donkey would be a good idea 🙂 I’ve dreamed of a whole rescue farm-animal scenario since seeing your post title. I think I’m going to need a rescue goat too 🙂

    Love the tag! I’m not sure if I can remember enough Christmas books to complete it myself, but would love to see what other people come up with 🙂

    The Donkey Sanctuary sounds wonderful! We have wild burros who live in the hills not a few miles away. Sometimes they venture into the neighborhoods looking for water. Less so now that we’ve gotten a little relief from drought conditions, fortunately. I imagine their lives aren’t as good as the donkeys in the sanctuary though. 🙁

    Your day off of work sounds so nice! I am glad you were able to have one. You certainly earned it.

    I hope you enjoy your new books, Trish! Have a great week.

    Awww donkeys! They’re totally one of my favourite animals. When I was a kid, a neighbour had one (we lived in the bush with huge backyards); I used to feed him all the time 🙂

    It sounds like your day off was delightful (minus the housework!)

    I hope you’re having a good week 🙂

    I would like to visit a sanctuary once. I follow a Facebook page from an animal sanctuary. I’ll have to see if we have some close by here, just not sure what we call them in dutch.
    That donkey sanctuary sounds like a great place to visit. And that’s great they’re living the good life now, even tough it’s for sad reasons they ended up there, it’s great to see they’re taken good care of. Your day off sounds productive and relaxing! Have a great week!
