Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme.
A fairly quiet week last week, both on the blog and in real life. Although got a phone call from my doctors mid-week and apparently I’m now of the age where I should be having an annual check-up! Not sure how I feel about that!
Next week is looking up though, as me and a few friends are heading to the coast for an overnight stay to celebrate their birthdays. They all have birthdays sometime in March, so this is the easiest way to celebrate them. (That’s our excuse and we are sticking to it!) I’m also taking the opportunity to use up the some of this year’s holidays, to tag a day either side. So I’ve got two four-day weeks ahead of me. 😀
Although it does mean that I’ll probably be giving next week’s Sunday Post a miss.

A few great links for you this week.

Could the author of *that* article come across any more of a jealous miserable old fart if they tried?
