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

In my private life

Happy Sunday!

The past week has been hell at work. Suffice to say that someone above my grade has not been happy with me when I had done nothing wrong. I had been put in a difficult position and got an earful for something I had no control over.

This is the first time in my career that something like that happens and let me tell you that is NOT pleasant.

I do a very difficult job for nearly twenty years now and I am really reconsidering my choices here. When work begins to poison your free time because you can’t stop thinking about it, that’s not a good sign.

I don’t know what to do really but I can’t go on stewing in my corner so I think a good discussion will have to happen and then, a decision, one way or another.

Aside from work, what to tell you?

Ah yes that my daughter is hoping to go abroad six months for her studies next year and she would like to go to Trinity College in Dublin! But it seems that finding a lodging is very difficult so if you have any tips they are all welcome!

On another note, I planned to listen to the last JLA romantasy today but… stopped at chapter 10. The reason is here below…

And as usual, I will leave you with two reels. The first is when it’s bookmerch day and then….

And the second is an unboxing with a little trick! By the way, if you are interested in buying the merch, you can use my code and have a discount…

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

I just posted two reviews as my month is quite slow! The first one is a lovely romance from Beth O’Leary.

And the second is the excellent sequel to Belladonna: Foxglove!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Sorry to hear about the crappy week at work, but if 20 years has gone by and this is the first time anyone’s had an issue with you, maybe it’s just a fluke. I wouldn’t stress it or turn your entire life upside down just yet, hopefully it’s a one off and it’ll get sorted quickly!

  2. An unpleasant (I hesitate to say “toxic”…) work environment can indeed poison even your time out of the office – I’ve been on that road for some time, and I can totally sympathize. I hope that your will be able to find a solution, either way. Hang in there!!!!! :-)

  3. Sorry you are not feeling so positive about your work situation lately..
    Good luck to your daughter.. that sounds like an incredible opportunity.
    I haven’t read any JLA but she is on my list.. I don’t mind some sexual thoughts but nothing too graphic.
    Loving all your book merch.

  4. I’m sorry you’ve been having a difficult time at work! I totally agree, if it’s toxicity is following you into your free time it might be time to re-evaluate. I hope your conversation is productive and helps!

    I wish I knew something about Dublin, but I’ve never been. On my bucket list. :)

    I’m reading and enjoying The Wake-Up Call right now so happy to see you enjoyed it!

    I don’t like a bunch of sex in my romantasy either. I think it slows the plot down, so I totally get you.

    Have a lovely week, Sophie!

  5. I am sorry to hear about your troubles at work. I left jobs and started over when they were damaging my mental health. I know not everyone has that luxury, but I didn’t want to make it three in patient stays. i hope you can find a solution that is best for you. Wow! Six months at Trinity. It’s such a beautiful university. Here’s hoping your daughter can get the lodging worked out.

  6. It is not a good sign when you are upset about work even on your time off. I hope that you can find the resolution that you need. Sorry that the new JLA didn’t work for you. I loved it but not every book works for every reader. I hope that you have a great week!

  7. Sorry things were bad at work. I think so often people get an earful for something that isn’t their fault because, as my mother said, “poop rolls down hill” and people higher up will blame those below them. Hopefully you are able to find some peace in whatever decisions you have to make!

  8. Oh I hope the work thing works out. I’ve been there and it’s tough. Hang in there Sophie and sending positive vibes your way!

    My daughter is hoping to study abroad too – how fun and I hope all works out!
