The Sunday Post #11 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my weekly wrap-up post. I am signing up with Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. I’m sharing all the reviews and other posts I’ve added to the blog this week, and as you can see, I’ve been very busy signing up for several really great-looking challenges. Like several other bloggers, I’ve also opened an account with Tsü – it’s a social network (kind of like FB) that doesn’t hide any posts! We’ll see how it works out, I’m sure. If you want to check it out, please come and find me on Lexxie’s Tsü Profile.

This week was my last week of classes, and I have to say it’s a relief to be on ‘vacation’ now! Yeah, I put vacation in brackets, because I have two papers to hand in on January 5th, which is only a couple of weeks away. I’m still taking a full week to relax, spend time with my husband and children, and generally just hanging out without doing too much of anything apart from reading for pleasure. I think I’m finished with my Christmas shopping – which, of course is a good thing. I was a little worried I’d just never get to it at all.

  1. Sounds like a good week, Lexxie. Hurray for the last of your classes (don’t think about the papers yet 🙂 Nice-looking tree, too! X-mas hugs xx

  2. I also joined Tsu this week, it’s pretty nice so far, I only see posts from authors and book bloggers and I see all their posts! I was a bit hesistant to join, but so far my experience with Tsu has been positive. I hope you have a great christmas and enjoy your “vacation”!

  3. I love your tree, Lexxie 🙂 Even with the idea of having to do papers it must be great to have time to relax with family, I am really looking forward to doing that this week. It’s my favorite part of Christmas.

    I made .15 on Tsu so far almost enough for a pack of bubble gum 😉 not even sure what the money is for or if I really want it. I just find it funny I made .15 cents lol

    Have a wonderful Christmas Lexxie! Hugs to you and your family!

    Have a great week!!! oxox

  4. I don’t know if I want to join TSU yet. Do I really need another new obsession? LOL but I can see myself falling into the trap very very soon. I also love your tree! Our is not fun this year. Mum bought all these expensive ornaments and it just looks straight out of a magazine now. NOT what a Christmas tree should look like!

  5. So far I find TSU quite great! *thumbs up*
    Hope you get to recharge a little, Lexxie. Christmas is quite overwhelming (I love it!), but it definitely give us the time to get a very needed break… And enjoy some precious reads even more, of course! 😉
    Happy Holidays to you and your family!! 🙂

  6. Yay for vacation – even if it is in brackets. 😉 I’m so glad you’re taking some time to relax and enjoy being with your family, Lexxie. James has already been off for one week and it’s been nice spending time with him…getting our shopping done. 🙂 The kids are now off and it’s just so nice to have everyone home. I hope you have a fabulous week, my friend!! It’s almost 2015…we’re that much closer to RT~ *squee*

    **BIG HUGS**

  7. Your tree looks lovely! I have ours up and decorated, but sadly am still shopping. Not sure when to get it all done. 🙁 Oh, well. these problems are easy to handle and I am blessed to have such a minor problem right now.

    Merry Christmas to all!
