The Sunday Post #27 - Sunday 22nd November 2015

sunday post, book blog, blogger, weekly review

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I'm gonna recap my week and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!




Ok I will be honest, I am struggling to find new Liz Lemon pics so I have taken the long and hard decision to find a new spirit animal and from now on that spirit animal will be......

LESLEY KNOPE!!


Ok so are well on board with Lesley? Good, so how are we all?

Me, I have a forty a day cough (I don't smoke any more) which is driving me crazy, my eldest has been ill and she is a bad patient prone to crazy dramatic outbursts.  The poor babe though she has been ill with a hellish cough (could be where I got mine from) but is thankfully getting better.

Today it started to snow, can't say I was thrilled but I do feel strangely Christmassy.

This week I started watching Broad City which I had previously dismissed as hipster nonsense but is actually freaking funny, so much better than Girls which I got bored of.  The girls in Broad City are brilliantly comic with the best facial expressions!

  1. Who doesn't love Lesley Knope?? Great choice!! I have heard so many great things about Broad City but haven't watched it yet. My kids are super excited for the Good Dinosaur. They did a very good job of marketing it. Enjoy your books and have a great week!

    1. I am hoping to see the Good Dinosaur next weekend, it looks so cute!!

      Broad City really is hysterical, much better than I thought, I should know by now to never judge a book by its cover!!

  2. Nice funny! I laughed when I saw that... I always loved writing but my grammar wasn't always flawless. :) The Good Dinosaur looks cute.

    It's been snowing here too, everything's white. Yikes... hope you guys are on the mend soon. :)

  3. lol - I'd say Lesley is a good pick. Oh man, hope you the sickness leaves you two soon. The Good Dinosaur hasn't come out yet? Seems like I've seen commercials for it for so long now. Anyway, have a great week.

  4. Ugh, coughs are horrible. I hope you and your eldest recover from it quickly!

    Have a great (reading) week, Heather. :)

  5. I'm hoping I can accompany my friend and her little boy to The Good Dinosaur. He loves dinosaurs (and helped me review a dinosaur book recently).

    And snow.... I think longingly as we've had a heatwave here in Australia!

    1. My youngest daughter loves Dinosaurs, she watches Jurassic World every night, the girls is obsessed!

  6. I hope your cough will be vanquished very soon, Heather! It is so hard to sleep when having a cough :(
    We were supposed to get snow this weekend, but no white flakes have shown up yet.
    I hope you'll enjoy your new books!!
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading :)

    1. It is horrible, it makes feel about fifty years older than I actually am!

      Despite the snow warning, not much fell but it is very nippy out!!

  7. I hardly watch TV anymore - Too much to read. If we do I create graphics or write posts. I haven't heard of Broad City. We did do a movie binge this weekend though.

    Happy Birthday!

    1. I have to watch tv and blog at the same time otherwise I would never see anything!

  8. I haven't read any of those books, guess I have to stop by goodreads and check them out. I hope everyone in your family feels better soon. I'm glad I don't have to worry about snow, but it will be strange not secretly praying for a white Christmas.

    Hope you enjoy your week.

    1. I am happy with Christmas being white as I should be off word but having to travel in snow every day is not going to be fun!!!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Sorry to hear that you and your eldest have been sick. I hope you both feel better soon! Also, happy birthday! And I love your funny; I've seen it elsewhere, and it never fails to make me chuckle.

    In answer to the question of what I would buy if I won. . . I'd probably put it toward that gorgeous new illustrated Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Yes, the UK version, because I want the original text. The American versions americanized the text a bit too much in the first few, though they pretty much stopped mucking with it after a while (other than spelling, of course.)

    1. I saw the HP book in my local bookshop earlier but I steered clear of it as I knew I would want to buy it!

      I hate it when they muck about with books, crazy they should leave alone!

  11. I hope you and your daughter feel better soon, that cough sounds nasty. We had some hail today, but no snow yet, we usually don't get snow till december or january. I hope you'll enjoy your new books and have a great week!

  12. Ack, seems like health hasn't been treating you to well, so I hope everyone you know and you yourself gets better soon! But I am glad you have telly shows and good books to keep you company. I like the looks of the Good Dinosaur as well so I am looking forward to seeing that too.

  17. Yes to Leslie Knope! I love Amy Poehler. I'll have to look for Broad City. I was seriously underwhelmed with Girls so that sounds promising. Hope everyone gets better soon. Those dragging coughs are no fun. Have a great week!

  18. I hope you feel better soon and get some relief from the cough and I hope your daughter gets well soon too.

    It is cold here but thankfully no snow yet. I'm not ready for that!

    The Good Dinosaur looks like a cute movie. I'm sure we'll show it at the library when it is out on DVD.
