I’ve decided to start doing The Sunday Post which is hosted over at Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I don’t often post on Sundays because I forget but hopefully doing this meme will help me to post regularly on Sundays.
The Sunday Post is a chance for me to recap the week I’ve had on my blog and in my personal life, meaning that you’ll probably be finding out more about me than you ever wanted to know. I’m going to split this post into a few different sections: personal, books I’ve read, a recap of this week’s posts, and next week’s to-do list . These sections will probably change over the coming weeks because it’d be nice to write about something different every week.
See the rules here.
Okay, let’s get on to the post…
I did some gardening in the early part of the week and I finally re-potted my Christmas cactus which had outgrown it’s pot. It’s looking much healthier now that it has some room to grown and hopefully it’ll still flower over Christmas if I start feeding it soon.
I also started my Masters degree this week. I’m studying Early Modern English Literature which is really cool and I love that period of literature. I’m the only person taking two of my modules so the meetings with the tutors this week were slightly awkward but they were both really nice and they actually treated me like an equal! I’m looking forward to reading the revenge tragedies that have been set for my directed reading module because it’s my area of interest.
Funny/embarrassing story time: I was stood up on the tram to university when it had to break hard to avoid a child running in the street. Unfortunately, I lost my balance and landed on a young guy (about my age) who was sat down. He got a face full of my chest while I used his thigh to steady myself. Not my finest hour but he didn’t look too bothered by the event.
Yesterday (Saturday) I painted the garden shed with my dad. It was fun.
Other than that, nothing much happened this week.

Two of the books I’ve read this week have been academic so I won’t be reviewing them. I might review the play I’ve read but I’m not sure yet.
