Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer . 

In my private life

I know it’s a late Sunday Post (at least for me as it’s already Sunday evening here) but I had a headache…again, on the weekend.

I guess as work is getting busier by the day, I unwind on the weekend and get headaches.

That or I caught a bug (COVID is exploding here but not with as dire consequences as the first year).

Anyway, I worked a lot this week that’s why I didn’t catch up sooner. I even worked on my off day!

Mmm what else? Oh yes I must do some kind of physiotherapy called RPG (no idea if it’s the same in English) because of back pain that I have for months. Nothing had worked so far so we are trying something new.

I had my first session on Tuesday and the therapist told me that I had “too much abdominal muscles!!!!“. Yet I am not a gym rat, I just go twice at the pool and walk every day…

But it seems these muscles are so strong and tight that they push on organs that in turn push on my backbone etc. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes.

Now I am leaving you with two reels. The first is a funny one about taking book days

And the second is a “Wednesday Adams” unboxing of an ARC of An Education in Malice. Enjoy!

On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)

Forged by Blood by Ehigbor Okosun is a fresh fantasy inspired by Nigerian mythology.

What Lies in the Woods by Kate Alice Marshall is a great thriller with an unreliable narrator. Full of dread and twists.

Tom Lake by Ann Pratchett was a luminous story told by the magnificent Meryl Streep!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I don’t think that anyone will ever accuse me of having too many abdominal muscles. I hope that the new treatment works for you. I hope that you have a great week!

  2. Good luck with your therapy! Covid is bad here too. I thought we were past the worst of it, and we probably are, but still…

    I’ll have to look into that therapy since my mom has been struggling with back issues lately…

  3. Oh I wish physio does help you!! That seems like a wierd ยซย diagnosticย ยป? didnt knew it was even a thing..

    Work had also been tedious lately! Jammed with the other hectic things going on, I did over 50hrs this week hope you had some time to proper relax!

  4. All work and no play is terrible! And nobody needs headaches making their down time miserable. I saw this doctor talk about helping headaches (migraines) by putting your feet in the hottest water you can stand. The science sounds solid. I had to google RPG. It makes sense that retaining your posture could help with back issues. I hope it works well for you. Who knew too many abs was a problem.

  5. I enjoyed What Lies in the Woods too.

    I have my Sunday Post up late too. Didn’t sleep well last night. Headaches are the worst and so is backpain! Hope you feel better, Sophie.

  6. Yes – I used to get stress headaches during the weekends when I was working too hard at a job I didn’t like all that much… I hope work eases up sometimes soon. And that business with the abdominal muscles sounds interesting – fingers crossed it helps your back. I have found that entirely giving up sugar to aid my chronic fatigue has also had a huge beneficial effect on the lower back pain that I’ve suffered with ever since the breech birth of my eldest daughter back when I was 27. You might find that a help if you get desperate enough! I hope the coming week is a good one for you, Sophie:).
