Weekly update: 4th December, 2017

Weekly update

 

Morning all and welcome to another later than normal weekly update thanks to another weekend away (I really should get better at scheduling posts shouldn’t I?).  Still, it was a good weekend away so well worth being late for.  It did, however, do a bit of damage to my waistline (as did the snow – yes snow! – we had last week).  I’ll hopefully getting back on track today by going for a run.  I should have hit my 5K last week but I just couldn’t get out after Wednesday between the weather and then going away so fingers crossed for this week.  Other than not running and playing in the snow, I didn’t do much last week.  Presents got bought, one tree (the pink one in my daughter’s room) went up, and I thought about making my last minute Christmas cake. 

On the blog, I didn’t post Saturday or Sunday but I did post the rest of the week, which I thought was pretty good going.

     

On Monday, I shared my last, late-running, weekly update.

On Tuesday, I shared my latest read, The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown, which got lots of positive comments leaving me with high hopes.

On Wednesday, I reviewed Thieves on the Fens by Joy Ellis, which was a brilliant read.  The 8th in the Nikki Galena detective series, they keep getting better and I can’t recommend them enough.

On Thursday, I revisited my November reads – the books I loved, liked and just weren’t for me.

On Friday, I reviewed Cops Lie! by Leonard Love Matlick, a book I struggled to read and really wasn’t for me.  It’s the first time I’ve had to go back to a publicist and say “do you want me to post this?”.  They said it was fine but I still feel a bit guilty.

And then I went away, ate too much, drank too much, laughed too much and didn’t do more than a few thousand steps a day.  What about you?  What was your week like?
