As it’s the first Sunday of April, I’ll also double up with a monthly wrap-up.
In my private life
Well this week has been HELL!
Last Sunday I proudly explained how I could slow down and how that was essential for my mental health.
Well let’s just say that come Monday, something happened at work that literally pushed me over the edge. I had to come with a “solution” and that’s what I did but what had happened cost me my sleep and had me so fragile that I cried all the time.
I had a doctor appointment scheduled and she gave me tissues one by one as I was sobbing in her room.
After nearly no sleep for two nights, I decided to take some relaxing plants (and no, it’s not weed LOL) to sleep on Wednesday night.
Result: I slept like a baby and was a lot calmer on Thursday.
After a good explanation at work, I also decided to make an appointment with a shrink specialised in burn-out.
And I now have order from my boss to stop working at 4 PM for one week.
I think the worst is over but I also know that if something similar happens a second time, I won’t be able to do my job and I’ll have to look for something else because the situation was simply irreconcilable with my independant function.
Needless to say that I was so tired that I had no energy left to reply to comments and blog hop. That’s why I did all this yesterday.
Now let’s end this on a more positive note with reels showing some pretty books!
And these are the prettiest books I got in March!
March Wrap-Up (click on the graphic to read the post)
In March I read 13 books.
From contemporary romance to cozy historical mysteries, fantasy, thrillers and historical fiction, it was a good month with two big favorites!
My two winners are:
A Girl Called Samson by Amy Harmon. A Girl Called Samson is about Deborah Samson, a girl who dreamt of freedom and equal rights to men. It’s inspiring and enlightening.
And another extraordinary book that I didn’t post the review yet (patience, patience, you’ll get it next week) is The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi by Shannon Chakraborty. That book was a 6 stars and simply a grand adventure! The audiobook was AMAZING.
Thanks for reading!
