This week, I've been on leave from work, my mum is visiting, and so we've been out and about day-tripping to various places with the little dude and it's been lovely!
The professor was in Colorado for work and brought back a load of American candy and cookies that we can't get over here (or that we prefer from the US) so I'll be spending next week in a sugar coma.
Folks! Be proud!
Ancient Magic was an audiobook!
Not only do I feel I deserve a 'well done' for actually listening to an audiobook from start to finish (because it was a first) I really deserve a well done because I straight up lost my shit so many freaking times with the god-awful abomination of a Scottish accent the narrator voiced for one of the characters. I'm serious, it was beyond awful. So awful, I was going to return the bloody audiobook but refrained. After a while, I think enough blood had built up in my ears that I became numb to the torture.
However, the audiobook I bought was the five book audio boxset, aka the complete series.
I just don't know if I can bear to listen to that accent again... I may finish the series by reading the ebooks. Or I may be so mentally scarred by the accent that I never again read this series for fear of it popping back into my brain.
I also read these with the little dude.
It was Bout of Books week!
