The Sunday Post #16


http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

This week I have been feeling like an old lady. Yep.. I know I’m just 26, but this week I sure as hell didn’t feel like it. I have been having these headaches and my neck has been killing me. So the first two days of this week, although I had to work, I’ve been taking it easy. At least as easy as I can do things. I’m not very good in doing thinks slow.. But I definitely tried.

On Wednesday we had our national holiday called King’s day. On April 27th we celebrate our King’s birthday through music, many street parties, flea markets and all sorts of fun things. I always love this day because me and my boyfriend spend the day outside in our town listening and dancing to the music, celebrating with colleagues and friends and we eat all kinds of bad things. Fries, hamburgers etc. It’s really a fun day. The King himself visits another city each year with his family and takes part in the events the city organized. It’s really a great day and one of my favorite holidays.
Unfortunately this year the weather was really bad. It’s was raining, there was a lot of wind and it was really cold. But we still managed to visit our town and walk around for a little while. Normally we would be outside till late at night, but this year, around 3 p.m. we were so cold we went home and watched the King on the television. It was still a fun day.

Thursday I had to work the evening shift. Thankfully my neck was feeling a little better and I could do my job without having a lot of pain.
Friday it was time to rest before I had to work the nightshift again. Three nightshifts this time. And no.. It’s not normal that I have to work nightshifts again after just getting out of them two weeks ago. But after these three I won’t be having nightshifts for a while, so I’m okay with it.
Due to the nightshifts my weekend was slow. Saturday I worked on preparing my posts for the Blog Ahead (mini) challenge that starts today. Check out my post to see my goal and progress in the upcoming days.

So that’s it for me this week.. Reading wise I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted since I was a little cranky about my headache and neck pains. I hope it will keep getting better this upcoming week.

  7. Really sorry to hear about the neck ache - I'm probably teaching you to suck eggs as you're a nurse, but when I used to get sore necks, I used to roll up a bath towel lengthways, wrap it around my neck and cross over the long roll at the front, tucking the ends under my arms while TV watching, or sitting at the computer. I just gave my neck extra support and eased the pain somewhat. King's Day sounds like a lot of fun - we're celebrating our Queen's 90th birthday this year, but I think it sounds as if you are more organised:). Have a great week and I hope the neck improves really quickly.

      The Queen's 90th birthday definitely also sounds fun. We are seeing a lot of pictures here of her and her family. Love those pictures!!

  8. Mother Nature is really messing everything up this year! Grrr! I hope your neck is back to normal. Neck and back pain really suck. Yay for no more nightshifts for awhile. I hope you have a wonderful week!

  9. Oh, I love the idea of King's Day. Sometimes I wonder what my life would be like if I'd been born in a country with royals running things. It sounds awesome!

    I fight allergies and sinus headaches a lot lately, and even though I'm finally on medication, it doesn't help much.

    Speaking of feeling like an old lady...I guess I should feel like that a lot, too, because I am kind of old...LOL. But mostly I don't think of myself as old. Funny, right?

    Enjoy your week...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. Well.. to be honest.. Most days we don't get to see and hear a lot about the King. But a view days a year we do and I just love it. It just feels kind of special to me.
      Sorry to hear your allergies and headaches aren't getting better. I hope that changes soon! ;)

  11. I am sorry to hear about your headaches and neck, I hope you'll feel better soon! For me King's day was just like any other day, I stayed home and worked. Some years we do go out and visit a flea market close by when we feel like it, it can be fun. I am glad to hear you had a great day.

    Good luck with Blog Ahead! I am participating as well :). I hope you'll have a great week!

  13. King's Day sounds really fun! I hope you feel yourself again soon. We all suffer those aches and pains once in a while. Mine is my back at the moment. It seems like everyone is getting rained on this week. Hopefully the April Showers will move on now:)

    1. Maybe we all have pains because of the rain.. I'm soooo needing the sun right now! Hope your back also gets better soon!;)

  14. King's Day sounds like so much fun but what a pity the weather didn't cooperate. I'm so much older than you that I'm more used to to aches and pains! But they are always a nuisance and just seem to get more random and even more annoying as the years pass!
    Hope you feel better soon. Can't wait for your day in the life a nurse post, I'd say that will be eye opening for me. I can't even imagine how you cope with night shifts.

      Have a great week and Happy Reading!
