Teaser Tuesdays ~ Falling For You by Jill Mansell




Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by the lovely MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here's how it works...

Grab your latest read, open it up and share two sentences from the page. Easy as that. Don't forget to link back to MizB and share the title and author of your book so others can add to their TBR (to be read) list if they wish.


Here's my teaser...

If she hadn't been too vain to wear her glasses, she'd have spotted the nail sticking out of the wall, encouraging a clematis to entwine itself around it, and her trousers wouldn't have got disastrously ripped.

Mistake number three had been climbing over a five-foot wall with the help of a sawn-off tree trunk without pausing to wonder if the drop might be greater on the other side, and whether there would be another handily positioned tree trunk to enable her to get back.


Have a great day/night and I'll see you soon.
Happy reading,

Keeping Up With KB





Feeling a bit down in the dumps :( Whitensnake has been having a few troubles which I don't want to go into here. We are both remaining as positive as we can be but at the moment I have the attitude ...why do bad things happen to good people? Sometimes I think maybe the bad things I've done in my life are coming back to haunt me. Anyway, now I've had my little moan, I'll dust myself off and get back up and remember that this too shall pass. What do you do when life starts to wear you down?

Righto, now I've got that out of the way, I'll end on a positive note. Our dear friend, Jay came to stay with us for most of the weekend. We ate too much, Whitesnake and I drank enough to make up for Jay not drinking and we had a relaxing time. Loved it!

What's In A Name?





I'm taking part in the 30 days about me challenge. Here you will learn some interesting and fun things about me.

Here's the 30 day challenge



day 19- nicknames you have and why you have them



This one is easy, my only nickname is my internet name. I'm crazy and I'm blonde but crazy blonde was already taken when I first needed a log in name. I changed the C to K and there you have it. It may interest you to know that when Whitesnake and I are married my initials will be KB. Meant to be or what?

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This





I'm taking part in the 30 days about me challenge. Here you will learn some interesting and fun things about me.

Here's the 30 day challenge



day 18- plans/dreams/goals you have

My dream is to be married to Whitesnake. We'd live in a small but comfortable house in a little town with Coco. My parents would live close by. We'd have a veggie patch, a garden big enough for Coco and a couple of chickens, a big kitchen to make our Simply Delish meals and a bathtub for me to relax in. Whitesnake and I would spend our days at home together as we'd be making a comfortable living from writing and blogging.  Most importantly, we'd be happy and healthy.

That's all from me for today.
See you tomorrow.

My Feng Shui Colour Is Blue Which Just Happens To Be My Favourite Colour



<><><> 





Your Color is Blue












You are a calm and content person. You find that the key to life is easy... just be yourself!

You believe in the importance of letting go. You release your anxieties and welcome renewal.



You are a generous person, and you look for the best of people. You promote peace and trust.

You value intellect and experience. Unlike most people, you truly respect your elders.

Weekend Walkabout



Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.

Flash Fiction Friday - When The Going Gets Tough



Each Friday I write a short story in exactly 55 words. If you'd like to join in the fun and games, write your story, visit G-Man and let him know you've posted.




Jim was hard working and a joy to be around. His boss saw things differently, constantly putting Jim down and watching his every move. Didn’t he realize there was more to life than work? When it got too much, Jim would look to the future and his new life. He would have the last laugh.


Have a great weekend all. See you tomorrow for Coco's Animal Antics and Simply Delish.

Something Dangerous ~ Penny Vincenzi




One of my goals this year is to read more books. You can read my reviews and learn where you can purchase any of the books I've read this year here...KB's Bookshelf.

Here's a bit of the blurb from the back cover...


It is 1928: the dizzy twenties are passing into the glamorous thirties, and the misery and horror of the First World War are far behind. But, as the twins move into adult life, against their glittering socail background the spectre of Nazi Germany, wearing its terrifyingly seductive face of success and prosperity, is growing. Gradually the twins' lives darken un unimaginable ways: Venitia finds herself humiliated and rejected in what promised to be a brilliant mariiaged; Adele is trapped in war- torn Paris with two tiny children. Then and only then do they find their own worth and what they are truly capable of.


KB's Comments


This is the second book in a series of three. The characters are strong and the plot interesting. I love a girlie book which is set in past times. I find learning more about history through a novel much more interesting than reading a history book on the topic. I'm already over half way through the next book and it's fab.




Are you reading anything interesting besides my blog?

Turn Off That Tap



I'm a member of meyouhealth.com. Each day I receive an email suggesting a way to improve my physical/mental/enviromental health. I'd like to share today's challenge with you.



Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth.

How To Do It

After you wet your toothbrush, turn off the water. Leave it off until you are finished brushing and ready to rinse.

Why It Matters

Saving water helps to maintain water supplies at safe levels. Lower water levels can contribute to higher concentrations of human and natural pollutants, which can put our health and the health of the environment at risk. Turning off the tap also saves an enormous amount of energy that's expended in treating the water and delivering it to your home. Leaving the tap running for five minutes uses roughly the same amount of energy as running a 60-watt light bulb for 14 hours. Plus, saving water means saving money - and every little bit helps!

Fun Fact

The first toothbrush dates back to 3000 BC. It was a thin twig with a frayed edge that would be rubbed against the teeth.

KB's Challenge

I already do this to save a little water. Didn't really think about the fact I was saving power too so I'll continue turning off the tap.

See you tomorrow

He looked so genuinely wretched, so nervous that she was quite shocked. And suddenly she saw herself through his eyes, as a rich and very spoilt woman, wielding considerable power, both domestically and professionally, a woman not unlike Celia, in fact; she had become exactly the person she would once havc wanted not to be, and so shocked was she by this perception of herself, that her eyes filled with tears.






Have a great day/night and I'll see you tomorrow.

Weekend Walkabout - Mellons Bay



Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.

We've been having terrible weather recently but yesterday was beautiful. We headed out to a beach we've been to before but never with Coco. It's a beach which has a section specially for dogs off the leash. She was soooo happy to run around. We dropped her off at home afterwards for a sleep and headed to the pub for lunch. What a lovely day.

Just A Quickie



Luckily, Whitesnake and I managed to get out and do our grocery shopping before the bad weather came. It's pouring with rain, Whitesnake is watching telly, Coco is sulking because she can't go outside but otherwise all is well. It's a perfect day to stay inside and chill. I just popped on here to let you know our recipe for today is...Pasta and Bean Salad. Righto, now I'm heading off to watch some telly.








Have a great day/night.
See you tomorrow for Walkabout.
