Book review-Where has mummy gone? By Cathy glass

I just finished another amazing book by UK foster parent Cathy glass.

This one is her latest book, called, where has mummy gone? Its a fab read!

A summary of the book follows:

Summary

The true story of Melody, aged eight, the last of five siblings to be taken from her drug dependent single mother and brought into care.

When Cathy is told about Melody’s terrible childhood, she is sure she’s heard it all before. But it isn’t long before she feels there is more going on than she or the social services are aware of. Although Melody is angry at having to leave her mother, as many children coming into care are, she also worries about her obsessively – far more than is usual. Amanda, Melody’s mother, is also angry and takes it out on Cathy at contact, which again is something Cathy has experienced before. Yet there is a lost and vulnerable look about Amanda, and Cathy starts to see why Melody worries about her and feels she needs looking after.

When Amanda misses contact, it is assumed she has forgotten, but nothing could have been further from the truth….

This book is a page turner. There are many wonderful twists and turns in it. If you read it you wont be disappointed…

Its available in paperback from all good book stores, on kindle, and from audible.

Mom and reading

I just talked to mom. We always talk in the mornings. She told me she’s coming over today. But she can only spend an hour here. I am a little disappointed. I know an hour is better than nothing. But lately when she comes over she’s having to spend less and less time here, as if she wants a lift home she has to rely on my sister to drop her, and she can only do that when she finishes work, mom cant come over until they pick the kids up from school, so that only leaves about an hour to spend in my house. I just wish it was more. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful that she does come. I know not everyone gets to spend one to one time with their mom. So I am grateful. I just enjoy spending time with her and seeing her and am disappointed it cant be for longer.

I read 3 more chapters of my book. I am reading where is mummy gone? by cathy glass. Its really good. I have 7 more chapters to go to finish it. I’ll probably get it finished today. Its a page turner for sure. I love her books so much. They are always so addictive.

I think another cup of coffee is in order. And some breakfast too. Catch yall later!

Monday night update

So I havent done much today besides go to therapy. That was draining and took most of my energy. The rest of today I spent at home chilling out. Doing nothing but being online and watching tv. We’re getting really stormy weather tonight here, rain, wind, the rain is very heavy, the wind is blustery, it is supposed to storm for the next two days at least. We even have flood warnings. I hope it doesnt get too bad as I have to go out tomorrow. I’ll still go out even if it is bad as I will mostly be in a car so it wont really matter to me as I wont get too wet. I made potato cakes for dinner, indian style, they were delicious. They had lots of spices in them. I must say I really enjoyed them. I am going to try to head to bed soon and read for a while I think. I’m not sure I’ll sleep much tonight if the wind keeps howling the way it is right now. We’ll see though I guess.

Fun afternoon!

So I have had a really fun time with my friend this afternoon. I spent a very nice 3 hours with her. We hung out and chatted. We basically put the world to rights. She had asked me if I wanted to have dinner with her but I had already left out chili so I didn’t take her up on that offer. I told her that maybe next time I visit her we could eat together.

Im wondering now whether I should go to bed and have an early night. Part of me says yes I should. Then part of me just wants to stay up for a while longer. Im not sure what I will do. I would like to read my book, so maybe I will just turn in for the night and do that.

Either way its been a nice day and I had a lovely time with my friend. I feel good and that’s a plus and a positive.

A good night

I had a good nights sleep. I went to bed kind of early, well early for me. I was in bed by 11 and asleep by midnight.

My amazon alexa gave me some trouble last night. I was in the midst of reading my book when it disconnected from the internet. I had to reset it. Now its speaking using the American voice instead of the UK one. Not sure what I did. But I guess that’s ok too. I’ll just have to put up with it until I figure out what to do to fix it.

I was going to go in to the basement club this morning. But I am thinking I wont bother going in. I am just not in the mood. I think I’d prefer a day of rest, a day at home where I can just relax and chill out.

I may change my mind and go in after all, who knows. We’ll just wait and see what happens, but right now, its doubtful I am going anywhere today.
