Sunday Post (25) - Almost November

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

The Rules can be found here. And this week's post can be found here.

I think I'm starting to feel like a normal human being again... the sprained ankle has healed and I'm able to jog/run/walk again. The vertigo has gone away and now I only notice when I'm in the middle of London surrounded by a million tourists and everything moves far too fast... and I've had a September and October filled with guests who wanted to visit the Harry Potter Studios, Phantom of the Opera, eat in a dozen restaurants and do many other things that required me being a tour guide. Hopefully that's all over now.
I've not been to the cinema in a while, but I've been reading a lot and I'm on track to finish 104 books again this year.

Lately on my blog:

This was my highlight of the week. Guns of the Dawn by Adrian Tchaikovsky and I hope I can review it soon. It's a bit like Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet has to go to war in a flintlock fantasy. (I just noticed, I added some of my hair to that photo, how nice...)

This is the pizza you get for £20 in Covent Garden in London in a restaurant called Homeslice. It's 20" and gorgeous in your mouth.

This is Lola, the Cocker Spaniel on a cold Saturday trying to stay warm. (Ignore the hair on the carpet, Blue the Australian Shepherd is shedding his fur in preparation for winter. I'm vacuuming twice a day.)

This is what happens to London when a storm brings around sand from the Sahara desert.

I hope everyone is having a good time, I will now try and visit everyone's blog and hope to catch up with all of you. Have a great week reading!


  1. Olivia! I've missed you. It's been so long since I've been round to your blog :(

    Wow that pizza! Looks delish.

    Glad you're feeling better and that life's calmed down a bit. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead :)

  2. Your dog is adorable and that pizza looks awesome. Glad you're feeling better!

  3. Oh my gosh that pizza.... I think I need to go grab some lunch! :)

    1. It's an amazing one, try it if you're ever in town. Hope you had tasty lunch.

  4. Wow, that pizza looks amazing! Lola looks all warm and cozy too. We have 4 dogs and they are getting their winter coats, so I completely understand the vacuuming thing. We have lint rollers everywhere even in the car. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post.

    1. Oh wow, 4! I only have 2 and I feel like I could make a daily wig!

  5. omg Lola is super adorable! and I want to eat that pizza so badly!

  6. So great to hear you're feeling better! It's been a long road for you. :( That pizza looks ah-mazing. Yum! Beautiful photo of the city (Sahara sand and all). It's been 10 years since I've been to London and I'm itching for a return visit.

  7. Well now I want pizza!! Glad you are feeling better.

  8. Olivia! Sorry it's been so long!

    I'm glad you're feeling better these days and that you've pretty much gotten over whatever that vertigo thing was!

    Your guests sound fun, but exhausting! How did you got with all of that?

    Wow - 104 books! I'll be lucky to hit 80. I really wanted to do 100 but life has just been CRAZY!

    Love your pics - especially Lola and London!

    Hope you're having a great week this week!
