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
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?
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.
