The Sunday Post #1

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

You can find the original post here.

The end of the week was HOT. Heatwave in the city is not much fun, it’s all very sticky and stifling. Although, if I’m being honest I hate the heat no matter where I am so wish me luck because next week is going to be just as hot!

We went to Ikea this week to get some storage solutions and random bits and pieces, and it was truly shocking to see the number of people not wearing a mask on the bus. It makes me wonder if London too is going to be on lockdown again, as is the north of the country at the moment.

On a positive note, I bought my first ever house plant! It’s a Peace Lily, and I had been wanting to have one for ages but just didn’t really have the budget for it. Here she is in all her glory:

I’ve read and finished

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (1999) – It was the first time I re-read it and it really is an amazing story, so much more engrossing than the previous two. Harry Potter brings me so much joy these days, I’m as much hooked as I was when I was little.

Currently reading

Akala, Natives (2019)

Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962)

Robert Tressell, The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists (1914)

Taylor Swift & Bon Iver, Exile (of course)

Have a great week ahead, everybody!

  1. I love your houseplant! I’m used to being the only person wearing a mask. People in my county don’t take the virus seriously, and the local politicians opted out of the mandatory mask rule that the rest of the state agreed on. It’s stressful. Enjoy your new books!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that, it’s really awful when governments don’t do their part to protect everyone… Thank you so much, glad to have books and plants to make up for the rest!

  2. I love the peace lily, my house plants are cacti and succulents, I haven’t been brave enough to try anything bigger!

    I’m in the Highlands of Scotland, mask wearing is reasonably good but there is still a lot of people not wearing them and not staying distant, I really worry it’s going to rear it’s head again.

    1. To be honest, I did have a little cactus before but my flat doesn’t get a lot of sun in winter, so it didn’t like it so much… it was so sad but I made sure this one would be okay in the shade!

      I worry too, and unfortunately I think we have to prepare for a second wave.
