Do You Grocery Shop?
Rambling On… 13 March 2020.
My son and his fiancée’s home is finally being built. The frame is up, and the roof trusses have gone on. While I love my son and his girl, I’m really looking forward to the time they move out as I know they are.
It can be really difficult having two women living in the same house and though we’ve had a few moments, I was glad that my hubby and I were able to help them out to get ahead in their lives.
The cost of houses these days is ludicrous and getting more and more out of reach for young couples trying to get into their own homes.
I’m happy that things are coming along for them and hope they can move into their own home when they expect to, which should be around the end of May or the start of June, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather and other problems could crop up so I’m not holding my breath.
My daughter brought my car back early this week after using it to go camping for a week with her man.
They had a great time and didn’t want to go back home. However, after driving her car to the shops, I was glad to have my own vehicle back. There was nothing wrong with her car, but it was so much lower to the ground and I felt as if the accelerator on her Mazda 6 was more responsive than my BT50. It’s funny because she said the same thing about my car. It’s amazing how quickly we get used to our own vehicles and how different it feels to drive another.
I hate any kind of shopping. #Aahh!#
I have to do the dreaded grocery shopping this weekend. I loath doing it but we’re running out of food.
Because I do a big shop once a month—only going back to the store for incidentals regularly, for bread, milk and more fresh fruit and vegetables—I always put off my shopping as long as possible. My freezer, pantry and cupboards are always stocked, and I don’t shop until I’ve nearly totally depleted them. However, we’re getting too low and I can’t put the chore off any longer. #Sigh#
Never mind, I’ll get it over and done with as quickly as I can and won’t have to worry too much for another month or more hopefully.
Stay safe, healthy and happy.
Love Becca Van xxoo.
What Have I Been Writing?
I’m still writing the second story in my Beautifully Imperfect Series which I’ve titled Worth the Risk.
When I was doing a bit of research for this book, I was horrified that people have actually been hurt the same way my heroine was but in real life.
I can’t understand what makes some people do such horrific sadistic things to others and probably never will.
What Have I Been Reading?
I’ve just completed reading Susan Stoker’s Defending Zara (Mountain Mercenaries Book 6). I loved this story from start to finish.
Reading about Zara’s tragic childhood and her struggles for survival was heart wrenching. I really liked that she ended up saving Hunter ‘Meat’ Snow after he’d been beaten, instead of him saving her.
I didn’t want to put this book down to sleep but weariness won out. If it hadn’t, I would’ve read the entire story in one sitting. Fantastic story.
I will leave it there for now.
Enjoy your week ahead, until next week.
