Saturday Bout of Books

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM well today hasn't been as productive so far as my other days.
I've managed about 1 hr 10mins of my audio book Shadow Of Night and that's it, this late in the day :(
I woke up this morning not feeling well, in all honesty I think one of my "Get Healthy" things back fired! See I bought some Matcha Tea to try, just one sashay, drunk it yesterday morning before my walk, and haven't felt right since :( This morning when my alarm went off I just couldn't get out of bed, considered not going for my walk but then decided I had to go. This meant I didn't get out of for walk until 10am (compared to my normal 7-8am) And have since been really unproductive.

I have however discovered you can vacuum pack coffee! See we are BIG coffee drinkers in my house, I remember that we always had bags of ground coffee and in my early teens we always had a grinder and coffee beans. This is in part due to my parents refusing to drink "that instant crap" in fact my mum has to buy instant coffee for when people come round because the stuff she brews burns peoples taste buds.
With their up coming holiday the news was broken to me, the grinder was going with them!!!(yes I know its weird, I did respond with "WHAT?!" however its there one addiction and vice, well that and chocolate)
This has resulted in me having to grind 3 weeks worth (plus extra if someone visits . With a jar/tub not big enough, I discovered that the vacuum packer will also vacuum and seal ground coffee :D

So unproductive reading, well of course, but I have managed to enable my addiction :P


  1. Ugh, I hate it when you try something like that and it makes you feel rubbish for NO REASON. I tried a sample of some new energy drink thing, a really intense one that was being developed, and I felt crap for about three days afterwards. Needless to say I did NOT volunteer to test that one again... ;)

    Rest up, feel better, and have a lovely last day of the read-a-thon. It's sunny and warmer, that's got to count for something! x

    1. Thank you :D God it really took me out, lost the last day of Bout of Books to it :( stupid being healthy, thought it would be alright, because its tea and natural. Think I would be better just downing a Relentless. x

  2. Aww, I'm sorry to hear you weren't feeling well! But at least something good came of today, so there's that. Hope you feel better, and congrats on finishing the readathon regardless!

    1. Thank you so much :D
      Finally got there, sort off. Well done of finishing :D and Good luck with your Goodreads challenge!!
