This is Sunday and I nearly did not post my usual weekly wrap-up because … my weekend looked like chaos! But I am a very dedicated girl sor here I am linking up to our charming hostess Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer
In my private life
Well I thought I would have nothing to mention today untill Friday afternoon.
That’s when all plans went to poop!
It all began with the battery of my laptop dying. Completely dying and not loading anymore! I had made the mistake to let it go till zero percent as I was distracted and fair warning: it kills your battery! You should never go below 20%.
Of course it happened when I had three reviews to write for blog tours (one today and two next Thursday) plus two more reviews next week and all my blogmas pitcures to schedule on Instagram!!!
I was sweating but lucky me, Super Hubby saved the day!
He really has found his calling working in IT! He revived my battery Saturday afternoon! It’s still weak but functioning!
Then on Friday evening my husband noticed that my windscreen washers (I think it’s the right term) did not work anymore. He opened the car hood and …. a weasel had eaten the cable and lots of stuff inside the car! That’s the third time in two years!!!!!!
I had little hope to get a quick opening at the repair shop but they were sweet enough to have me the morning after. Of course I had to change my plans that morning but my car was repaired…till the next time?
Saturday night I rode to attend a friend’s birthday when a light began to flash on my dashboard signaling a problem with my tires pressure and asking me to check and reset! I thought I probably had a flat tire and did not want to stay stranded far from home in the middle of the night so I turned back and … back home I went!
I indeed lose pressure in one tire but when I phoned the leasing company today asking if I could repair in a close by car shop open on a Sunday I got a flat “no” as this one was not on their list!
Result: tomorrow I’ll have to work from home and go to another one to have my tire repaired.
As I had a visit to my hairdresser scheduled today I went …. on foot. The bright side is that today has been healthy as I walked around 7 to 8 miles to have my hair cut 😀
But honestly I hope this streak of bad luck, even if it’s not life altering I rekon, is now over because I did not manage to blog hop or schedule or ….this weekend!
I guess it was a reminder on how easy my life usually is and why am I complaining so often! Point taken!
On the blog (click on the graphic to read the post)
I reviewed three books this week, some “meh” some great!
The Kiss Thief by LJ Shen was a disappointment. I so wanted to love that hyped book but ….no.
Six of Crow was an audiobook by Leigh Bardugo and ..a success! 6 stars!
The Guy on the Left by Kate Stewart was an ARC and part of a blog tour. I got it very late and had to erad it in record time (something that I hate) but fotunately for me I had a great time reading it!
Then my Blogmas began last Sunday with one post a day to celebrate all my favorite books read in 2019! Strangely they don’t get many visit on WordPress but many comments on Facebook!
On Tuesday we got to talk about the books that surprised us this year!
