My Week in Review to the 15th April

Thank you Adrienne! 
I am linking this post up with The Sunday Post at Caffeinated Reviewer.

A day later than usual because yesterday, being the 15th, was time to refresh my Giveaway Linkup. This monthly post showcases all the giveaways I am running alongside ones I've spotted elsewhere. Feel welcome to add your own links too! If you haven't already entered, good prizes at the moment are Two SciFi PBs from K E Lanning which closes on the 19th and my copy of Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dangarembga which closes on the 23rd. Don't miss out!

A new blog series started on Tuesday: I'm #ReadingWomen!
And Friday had my Top Ten Etsy Finds which, this month, were all Storage Solutions. You Need this BespOak Interiors bookcase!



I got a lovely book post parcel again this week - two weeks running! - this time courtesy of my sister who sent the three pictured at the top of this post. I realise I am behind the times with not having already embraced The Little Book of Hygge, but now I've read it I love that there's actually a named fashion which suits how I already like to live. My hyggeligt endeavours included reading lots of books while lounging on my vintage chaise longue. I also baked a Banana Cake, made Lentil And Mushroom Veggie Burgers, and made a batch of Chickpea Tofu. And all without emigrating to Copenhagen!

Other super-good news is that our car, whose gearbox has been grumbly and getting worse for months (years!) appears - touch wood - to be fixed at last. Yay and Phew! It was becoming worrying to drive, especially towing the caravan, and we had planned for a worse case of having to buy either a new gearbox or a whole new car. However Nigel at Torquay Transmissions changed all the oil and did his Mechanic Magic and we can now drive up hills without fearing that we might not make it to the top. Important in a town built almost entirely on hills!

    You've an awesome week last week. I hope it continues this week.

    1. The book itself I thought good rather than great, but I love the actual hygge concept :-)

  3. I love that tree bookcase! I am glad your car is fixed. I think I need to replace my tires. I am not looking forward to that expense, but I need my car. I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I have been seeing the Hygge book everywhere! I also really like the sound of cooking banana cake and chickpea tofu. Those both sound absolutely delicious :3
