Weekly update – week 30

Weekly update

Yet another week have went by already, I swear time seems to move faster and faster.

Here’s the reviews I’ve posted in the last week:

On Tuesday I also managed to reach my informal July goal of 200 blog followers, which I’m over the moon about. If you want, you can see the blog post here: 200 followers.


At the moment, I’m trying to read two different books. At first I was just going to read Windcatcher.

The Pawn

But then Sara wrote the most hilarious review of The Pawn and since I’m all for learning new things, i just couldn’t resist finding out what a chess fetish it! Since the book was free on Amazon, I just had to have it and I’m happy to say, that only 7 pages in I’ve already had my first fit of laughter.

On a personal note this week has been filled with ups and downs! If you’ve read my weekly update from last week, you’ll know that our precious female cat, Marley, has lost her marbles. Now we’ve spent about £70 on different socket plug-in diffusers and sprays.

So far nothing has changed, meaning that I’m wearing winter boots in the house. No, she’s not attacking all the time, which makes it all the more scary. So far we’ve narrowed it down to my boyfriends green trainers and my bare feet. But even that is sketchy. The other day she attacked my boyfriend, and when I tried to calm her down by cooing her name, she came running right at me. So there’s no real pattern!

On Wednesday we took her to the vet, just to make sure that she wasn’t sick or something, which could explain her sudden change of behaviour. The vet didn’t find anything wrong with her, which honestly is both good and frustrating. It’s obviously good, because I don’t want my baby to be ill. But a part of me is frustrated by it, because now there’s no explanation for why she’s gone from the sweetest thing, to attacking us for no reason.

I know it can take up to 30 days for the Feliway Diffuser’s to work, but right now that feels like a veeeery long time. Especially when you have to watch your every step!

Right that’s enough about our psycho cat, at least for now. Monday & Tuesday are my last two days of freedom. On Wednesday I start working again, which I’m pretty excited about. Being at home and being able to read all day long is great, and I love the interaction via my blog and Twitter. But I’ve still missed working. As I’m writing this I’m betting it won’t take long before I’m like “why did I go back to work? I miss reading all day and not having to get up early”.

So far I’ve been able to push out new content every single day, and even 2 posts on most days. I have a feeling that this will have to change. I did consider coming up with like a blog schedule, but for now I’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. If I can stay on top of it, great. If not, I’ll probably look into only posting on certain days. But only time will tell and for now, I’ve covered the next week.

Lets chat

  1. I know this is going to sound weird but see if the brand of food you are feeding your cat has changed. If the manufacturer has changed anything she might be having a reaction to it. I know it sounds weird but animals can have reactions just like humans. One of my dogs developed a reaction to Soy and the vet said she was fine it was our groomer that figured it out.

    1. Thank you 💕 I’ll definitely be looking into that. We have recently changed their food (1 month ago). She had went for my boyfriend’s trainers a few times by then, but never me. I’ll try and keep her off the biscuits and see if that changed anything.

  2. I’m glad you’re enjoying The Pawn so far! I don’t think it’s supposed to be a funny book, but I was laughing all the way through too. Just a warning, the chess fetish doesn’t come into play until the end of the book. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts when you finish!

    And as for your cat, I’m sorry she’s still not her normal self. I had a behavioral problem with my cat earlier this year and after spending an insane amount of money on various tests, we determined that there was a new animal in the neighborhood and she was getting very defensive of her territory. The vet asked me to close all the blinds facing the backyard and see what happened. No more problems. I couldn’t believe it. Maybe it could be something as simple as that? Either way, I’m glad she’s not sick.

    1. That’s definitely an interesting theory that we need to inspect. I guess we’rebuying blinds for everywhere if it works 😂

      I think you’re right, it doesn’t read as something that’s intentionally funny. But maybe that’s what makes it even more fun.
