Evening thoughts

Well, I am back home in my own house. My sister dropped me home after dinner. We all had dinner at our parents house first, then she dropped me and Nitro off. I bought Nitro a new bed, he’s in it now, but at first he didnt wanna get in to it. I think he needed some time to sniff around it, and see how he liked it. Earlier he was panting a lot for no reason. I tried letting him go outside, but he was still panting, I gave him some cool water to drink too. He’s fine again now, right now he’s laying in the hallway outside my bedroom door. I am currently watching a quiz show on tv. Its a fun show. I am also copying a tv show onto one of my hard drives. Its a show called Live PD. Its about police officers on patrol. Its a good show. I’m glad to be home. I dont have any plans tomorrow, but I might go visit my friend Norma. I’ll see how I feel when tomorrow comes. I may just stay home and rest. If I dont sleep well tonight I probably will just stay home and relax and rest up. How is your evening going? Thanks for reading my blog, I appreciate your likes and comments and views. Its nice that people want to read my thoughts and ramblings. I am very grateful that I have a following. Right now I am going to go make the kids a mug of hot chocolate. Then I think I’ll either watch something on netflix or read for a while and try to finish a stolen life. Last night an author named Ryan green gave me a number of books free, in exchange for reviews, so I will be reading those and reviewing them. They are true crime books. He gave me 8 books in total. That was so kind of him I thought. I love reading and I will enjoy reviewing them. Well gotta run now, catch yall later, peace out,

I am rereading now

I am rereading a book I read a few years ago at the moment. Its a cathy glass book. Its called will you love me and its about how she came to adopt her daughter Lucy, whom she fostered before adopting her.
Its a really good read. I am enjoying it immensely.
Its very very sad though. Lucys early life was very traumatic. Before she came into care I mean.
I wanted to reread this book as I couldn’t remember a lot of the details.
I’ll review it once I am done. Have any of you my readers read it?

Book review: Through a mothers tears by Cathy broomfield

I just finished an amazing book, by a wonderful author, Cathy broomfield. She wrote a memoir, about losing not one, but two daughers.
One of her daughters was murdered by her husband, and the other one, died of heartbreak after losing her little sister.
Its a shocking account, and heartbreaking. However Cathy is raw, and very honest, and I have to say it moved me, the details of her daughter Kirstys murder are shocking though, not for the faint hearted, so do be aware of that if you read this book.
Its a pretty short read, in audio its just over 3 and a half hours in length. I read it in one sitting.
I was hooked right from the start!
Its available in audio from audible, on kindle, and in paperback from all good bookstores or from amazon.
I will put a description of the book below. Please do check it out.

Book description:

Cathy Broomfields youngest daughter, Kirsty, disappeared, Cathy hoped she had gone to stay with friends, to escape her brutal and bullying husband. But as the days passed with no word from Kirsty, a loving daughter who spoke to her mum every day, Cathy became increasingly anxious…until the day the police arrived at her door to tell her they had found a body. Her worst fears had been realised.

Through a Mothers Tears is the poignant and heartbreaking story of how Cathy lost not only Kirsty, her youngest daughter, but Kirstys big sister, Hayley, who died of heartbreak when the agony of her baby sisters loss became too much to bear. This harrowing audiobook will appeal to listeners of The Hospital and Cathy Glass.
