The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a bit of a recap post of the week where you can link to the posts you made this week, share news, and even what you have been reading. Some categories might change per Sunday.
The last two weeks have been okay. The discomfort from the pregnancy is growing in my sleeping (or not sleeping), but also in that I am getting more easily tired and my feet hurt super quickly. It is a bit annoying to be honest. But I’m 31 weeks now so we are slowly starting to count down. I’ll be giving birth at home if nothing happens before week 37 (from this week I can give birth at home safely). But I’ve heard from a lot of people this isn’t quite so normal in other countries.
Amigo, our cat, is doing better on the medication and at our last vet visit we got some medication added. He’s doing fine now but the vet said that if he gets worse again there is nothing she can do for him. 😦
I won some giveaways. One will be mentioned in my book haul whenever that appears. But at the end of April I won a giveaway for a bookish necklace. If you follow me on instagram you will have seen it. It is so pretty. I won it from Suze Lavender over on Facebook, who does a lot of giveaways. It was needed as I was feeling a bit down from the bad sleeping.
Since last Sunday my husband had been off from work so I’ve had a lot less time to spend on the blog (none to be honest), and to reply and comment back. So if I have missed one of your comments I appologize.
Last Sunday, to start of his vacation, we went to Zwolle to go to the book market. I am apart of a Dutch goodreads group. And some of the girls from there also went to the same book market as we live reasonably close together. Some of them I have actually seen at the book club I mentioned last Sunday Post. It was fun seeing them again and walking around the book market. Of course I bought books, but that will be dealt with in my book haul for this month. Let me just tell you, I am ashamed of myself for this month.
On Monday we went to a monkey zoo in Apeldoorn where in some areas the monkeys can roam free. It’s great fun to see them. We’ve been there a few times before. It is one of our favorite and closests zoo’s. One of the Lemurs had twins! It was so cute to see. And they are reasonably used to people, though petting them would be stupid because they bite.
Other than that this week we spend some time cleaning the front and the back outside and doing some things for the baby. There was also the bookfest (boekenfestijn) but we shall not talk about that.
How have you all been these last two weeks?
★ Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
What I Watched
★ De Jacht Season 1 – DNF – This is a remake of a Finiish (I believe) detective. Normal Dutch crimes are only 50 minutes for each story line, but in this they made it like an English detective. Unfortunately the characters are bland, and the answers come to them a bit too easy. I coudn’t finish it despite there being only 6 episodes.
★ Black Sails Season 1 – So we finally started this. It is okay so far. But as I was just starting to care for some of these characters I felt it took a strange turn in places. So I feel a bit eh at the moment. But we’ll start the next season regardless.
