Sunday Post #9

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalise it! Include as much as you want or as little. Check out the rules of the meme.

I'm a little late in the day with this post, it has been a bit hectic today.  I have been baking this weekend, the French apple cake I posted about on one of my other blogs a couple of weeks ago.  I had promised a friend a house-warming cake and I was a little late as I didn't have time to bake anything when we visited for book group.  So I baked it yesterday and we took it round last night.  Today I made another which is still cooling to deliver to a very poorly friend who said he would like apple cake when I mentioned the idea to his wife. This week I went to see the film Pride which I really loved.  Great cast and so funny!  I went out for a meal with my old work colleagues to celebrate a 60th birthday.  We bought her champagne, an orchid, a cake and a balloon which we attached to the table.  My teen has encouraged me to snap-chat and she has sorted out some of my questions about it.  I'm not sure how long this will last with me, but if anyone here wants to snap-chat with me let me know your handle.

No planned reviews but you never know I may sneak one in.
My next book choice will be whatever comes out of the book jar.
