Mid morning ramble

well i have had a pretty uneventful morning. i’ve been up since 4 AM. I showered and ate breakfast. Other than that I havent done too much. I read a chapter of my book. I talked to mom on the phone. I went online for a while. Right now I am listening to a talk show on the radio. I turned on my heating as I felt a bit cold. I heard temps were going to be around 20 to 21 degrees c today. But it doesnt feel as if they are. I’ll leave the heating on for an hour just to heat up the house. I may nap later in the day. I’ll see how I go. Right now I am not tired but that may not last. I guess we’ll see what happens during the day.

Cant sleep!

I’ve been trying for hours to sleep!
Its almost 4 AM. I went to bed at midnight. I slept on and off for about 2 hours. But now I am wide awake again and no sign of going back to sleep! So I got up and made some tea!
I dont mind I guess. I wasnt going anywhere today anyway. I’m staying home! I will be taking it easy today and not doing much of anything.
I watched 2 true crime shows before going to bed. One was called britains darkest taboos. The other was called 9 9 9 killer on the line. They were good. I enjoy true crime shows.
I was going to read my book, but then I never did. Maybe I’ll do that in a little while.

Moms finally home and other thoughts about today

today was good. mom finally got home aroune 7:30 tonight. she had fun so that is good. we were chatting earlier and she said she doesnt think i’d like camping at all. she said she thinks it wouldnt be my scene. im not sure if i would. i’d like to try it out, but then if i didnt end up liking it I’d be sorry wouldnt i? so maybe i will stick to doing other fun things, and just not go camping. it is probably for the best. she was telling me the tent my sis has is so small…it only sleeps 5 or six. anyway she said to get in to it you have to crawl in on your knees, and then zip it up. there are only two rooms in it. my sis is thinking of buying a bigger one though as they are thinking of going camping again next year. the other thing that i wouldnt like is all the bugs. wasps are rampant this month, and they’d be around our food, yuck. i’d hate that plus i am terrified of them. so no, she’s probably right, i wouldnt like it. i’m glad she does though and i’m glad she enjoyed herself. oh one other reason? i think i’d be very bored. all they did by day was sit around and chatted, drank, and ate. not for me at all. they did have a little electricity though. they were able to charge their phones, and mom was able to use her nebulizer each morning. but they couldnt use a kettle, heater, or any big appliance, as that would have blown the whole system. i was glad to see her home though. i did miss her and i was getting sick of my dad lol. i love him and all but he’s a nightmare at the best of times to spend time with. everything has to be just so. he has a routine and he never strays from that. he is a bit OCD lol. well no, he’s not diagnosed, but we all think he has it. he’s quite controlling and likes to be in control of everything. so yeah. i’d had enough after spending all weekend with him. other than that im having a good evening. i napped earlier in the day after reading for a while. i’m reading groomed by casey watson. its a good read. although i’ve only read four chapters of it so far. its getting interesting now though.

Bank holiday monday thoughts

its a bank holiday here today. im not up to much.
mom will be home later this afternoon. im looking forward to seeing her.
i slept well last night. i read a few chapters of a new book before going to bed, its called groomed, and is by UK foster parent casey watson.
so far its really good. i’m only 3 chapters in though. but i like it so far.
i dont have any plans today. im thinking i’ll probably go home to my own house later this evening. i was going to wait until tomorrow to go home but i figure it will be less of a rush if i do it this evening.
i did end up going to normas house yesterday afternoon. we had a good time. we just hung out and chatted, i gave her a new book to read. i stayed there for about 2.5 hours.
im sure nitro will be glad to get home to his own house and his own bed. he likes it here at my parents house but he loves his own space too. he’s happy when he has his own bed to go to.
anyway. thats about it for this morning. im sure i’ll write some more later in the day.

Book review-Broken by rosie Lewis

I’ve just finished this wonderful book by Rosie lewis, UK foster parent, it was an amazing read, a really good book.
Below I will put the book summary, along with my thoughts.

Summary

Nine-year-old Archie and his five-year-old sister, Bobbi, are taken into emergency police protective custody after an incident of domestic violence at their family home.

Rosie collects the children from their out-of-hours foster carer on New Year’s Day and instantly recognises Archie from a domestic violence workshop she helped with. Rosie remembers that when asked what he enjoyed most about the course, Archie said, ‘The biscuits’.

Social workers are concerned that Archie and Bobbi have been neglected. As Rosie gets to know the children, she begins to suspect that something far more disturbing lies in their past.

Archie, jovial and polite, bats away Rosie’s attempts to talk to him about anything serious with witty one-liners and sophisticated distractions. Bobbi reacts violently, lashing out and throwing herself around. Rosie has never seen a child as young a Bobbi behaving so viciously, but it is Archie she is most concerned about as the weeks go by.

After a worrying incident at school, Archie tearfully discloses the truth – a shocking secret that has left him and his sister traumatised. Horrified at what she learns, Rosie is determined to help the young siblings find a forever home that will provide them with the love and care they deserve.

****
This book is a page turner. I literally couldn’t put it down. It has many twists and turns in it. I enjoy rosie’s style of writing. If you like Cathy glass, or Maggie Hartley, then you’ll enjoy this book. I wont spoil the ending but all I will say is it is not disappointing.

The book is available in paperback, on kindle, and from audible.

More random thoughts

im contemplating watching a show on tv. Well on my pc. I download a lot of things to my pc. I also have net flicks. So could also watch something on there. We’ll see I guess. I might also start reading a new book. And I have to finish one as well. I didn’t ever finish did you hear me crying by cassie moore? So need to do that too. At the moment I am reading blogs. And enjoying that. I have so many old posts in my inbox. I need to try to start catching up. I keep saying I will but I never seem to get there. Its very peaceful. I feel very peaceful and am enjoying being the only one up in the house. Its almost 2 AM. I am enjoying the peace and quiet.
