So another month is over, and I want to tell you about all the things I’ve been enjoying.
1. Roland Garros, otherwise known as The French Open. I’m a tennis nerd, it’s the only sport that I properly follow. Obviously being British, my favourite Grand Slam has to be Wimbledon, but I also really enjoy Roland Garros. I watched pretty much the whole thing. I like to have it on in the background when I’m reading.
2. Now I’ve never put a food on these lists, but when I first tasted this it was like I’d died and gone to heaven! Haha. It’s described as rhubarb and vanilla yogurt, with a hint of lemongrass. But what it actually is, is Greek yoghurt flavoured with vanilla and rhubarb compote. I love rhubarb (as you might have guessed from my birthday cake), and oh…my…god..this stuff did not disappoint. It is…delicious! It’s the addition of vanilla that really makes it special. I thought that might make it too sweet, but because it’s greek yoghurt it doesn’t. Plus because the yoghurt is “bio live” I can pretend it’s good for me! haha.
3. My favourite book I’ve read this month is Forensics: Anatomy of Crime by Val McDermid which I got for my birthday. Now my birthday was just over a week ago and I’ve already finished it, that tells me a lot, considering how long it usually takes me to read a book (damn brain fog). Val McDermid usually writes crime fiction, but this is a history of forensic science, split into different sections such as; the crime scene, etomlogy, toxicology, anthropology, and forensic psychology among others. (Thats a lot of logy’s haha).
I found absolutely every page of this book fascinating. She not only explains the process that is undertaken day to day, but also the history and the latest advances of each aspect, demonstrated with real life cases. I feel like I should point out though, this is not a book for the faint hearted, it can get quite gruesome, and I did find some of the real life cases disturbing. However despite this it’s one of the best books I’ve read in a while, and I’d recommend it to anyone who has an interest in this sort of area.
4. A TV show that I’ve been really enjoying this month is Episodes. I’ve been watching it since it started a few years ago and season 4 is on TV at the moment. It’s about two British writers who, after being very successful in the UK, get tempted over to the US to remake their show there, and it all goes disastrously wrong especially after they get forced to working with Matt Le Blanc. Matt Le Blanc plays himself (obviously) but it’s a horrible version of himself. It’s very funny.
5. I know I’ve showed you this is previous blog post, but I need to have it in this list because it’s so helpful. It may only look like tablet box, but it’s a tablet box with a tray for every day of the week, and each tray is divide into breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime. It has made everything so much easier. I don’t have to waste energy on worrying what tablets to take when and whether I’m taking the right ones. I was worried about how much energy it would take to sort the tablets into it, but it’s much less than I thought, once you get into a rhythm.
6. I don’t have a music favourite for this month. I’ve been listening to more audiobooks. My favourite one at the moment is Watership Down (which is also my favourite book of all time too). I bought it ages ago, but have just rediscovered, it’s so comforting to lay in bed, and listen to it as you’re going to sleep.
That’s all for this month. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
Until next time. Rhosyn,
