The other week I actually left the house. It was a very important, specific trip….To the Cereal Aisle of my local supermarket.
I’ve been here nearly two years but I have finally visited my local supermarket! Round of applause please.
I needed a new cereal seeing as one of the ones I normally have has suddenly lowered in quality. (It’s just not chocolate enough anymore). So Benny (my wheelchair) got loaded into my dad’s car and off we went. It was a lovely sunny day and luckily, I found a suitable replacement which is yummy. I also bought a variety pack even though I only wanted to try two of them. One if which was not nice so that didn’t go so well.
Speaking of food shopping, I’m going to fill you in on The Great Ice Cream Mishap
My parents came back from shopping the other week and said that they’d seen Hagen Daz Ice Cream at the store and asked me which one I wanted so that they could get it next time. I admit, I squealed a bit (I love me some hagen daz, it’s such a treat) I told them the Cookies and Cream flavour (Is there any other one, really?).
So off they went the next week and bought it. I planned my evening very carefully, looking forward to my ice cream for dessert and went out to eat it.
My mum took it out of the freezer ready to start scooping and from my perch on the sofa I saw the tub was blue. Blue? I though. Why would a Hagen Daz tub be blue. So I asked, dread filling me: “Why is it blue? Is it Hagen Daz?”
Mum, paused, looking at the tub in her hands “…. No.”
“It’s Ben and Jerry’s, isn’t it?” The answer to that was a yes. I really don’t like Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and you’re all probably thinking, ice cream is ice cream but Ben and Jerry’s has a weird taste. I’ve been to the Ben and Jerry’s music festival in London where they give you as much free Ice cream as you want and I only managed one cone and one taster spoon because ICK. Needless to say I didn’t get any ice cream.
In other news, I posted the other day on twitter about just how many books are piling up on my kindle:
The answer to that tweet is very simple: Not long at all! I think it was two days in the end. Ooops.
I’ve bought seven books this month (and a free ARC) and to be fair most of them were on deal for less than £1 but still that’s a lot and I already have too many books to read and not enough time to read them.
Books bought this month:
The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova
Starship’s Mage by Glynn Stewart
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Kingston Raine and the Grim Reaper by Jackson Lear
The Foxhole Court (All For The Game #1) by Nora Sakavic
The Raven King (All For The Game #2) by Nora Sakavic
The King’s Men (All For The Game #3) by Nora Sakavic
I’ve also added quite a few books to my to read shelf on Goodreads this month too….18 to be precise. I won’t add them here because that’s a rather long list but if you want to check it out you can click here and feel free to add me on Goodreads.
I’ll post the reviews for books I’ve actually read in May next week. But for now, have you read any of these? Do you have a book addiction, want to join me in bookworms anonymous? Anyone else hate Ben & Jerry’s? That one is probably just me. But I’m going to leave you all now and read some more books.
