I’m really enjoying broken by rosie lewis. she’s a great writer. And I am finding the book to be so interesting. I like how Rosie employs therapeutic strategies with the children, despite only being their foster parent and not an actual therapist.
Its very interesting and I think what she does is so helpful and is really helping the kids. I have yet to find out what the actual traumas are that the kids have gone through, I’m not that far into the book though. I’m only 8 chapters in. Am about to start chapter 9.
I think Cathy Glass is always going to be my number one foster parent that writes books that I love, but Rosie Lewis is a close second. I’ve read all of her other books and loved each of them equally. She even adopted one of her foster kids, and wrote about her in another book called taken.
I don’t think I’ll read any more tonight, well I am saying that now, but if I don’t sleep some time soon I may just pick up my book again and read some more until I am tired enough to fall asleep. I don’t want to read too much though what happens me is I tend to get hooked and then I cant put the book down.
Anyway all that to say I am loving my current book and I cant wait to do a review once I am done reading it.
I love this song. I really relate to the lyrics of it.
I FEEL DIZZY
IM TRYING TO IGNORE
BUT I’M A LITTLE BIT
HAVE TO FIND THE STRENGTH FROM SOMEWHERE
THE STRENGTH TO CARE
NOT AN EASY TASK
CAN I DO IT?
WILL I LAST?
AND IM JUST FEELING SO INSECURE
AN AWFUL WAY TO FEEL
TRY TO CONCEAL
HANG MY HEAD
WONDER IF I SHOULD GO TO BED
2 AM AND STILL IM WIDE AWAKE
HOW MUCH MORE CAN I TAKE?
so I have an exam tomorrow morning.
a cooking exam. I have to make a breakfast and a lunch from scratch.
for the breakfast I am making fresh fruit salad with natural yogurt and flax seeds. and for the lunch I am making a mixed salad with wholemeal bread.
I’m trying not to be nervous. I need to pass this in order to pass the overall module.
I also have to cook a dinner but that wont be happening for a few weeks yet. the whole menu had to be vegetarian.
it ties in nicely with my healthy eating and weight loss!
Keep everything crossed for me that I’ll pass this! Prayers would be appreciated!
so I went to the gym this morning. I did a 30 minute workout.
I used the treadmill, the bike and the rowing machine.
I did 10 mins on each one. I loved it! felt sooo good afterwords!
I did half a mile on the treadmill, 1 mile on the rowing machine, and 2 miles on the bike.
must say I feel absolutely great now. I pushed myself to work hard and I am super happy with my achievement.
