Home Sweet Home

Wow, I can't believe I haven't blogged for 2 months. Actually, I can believe it because I've been so busy. Whitesnake and I have bought a lovely house.


 
 
Coco's room


 
 
She's very tired after the big move
 
 
 
Just a few more boxes to unpack

The front
 
 
 
Your room when you visit
 
 
 
Coco's happy
 
 
 
I'm happy

Teaser Tuesdays - 11.22.63 by Stephen King




Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by 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...

His essay had been primitive art, but every bit as powerful and true as any painting by Gradma Moses. It was certainly better than the stuff I was currently reading.

Happy reading

Keeping Up With KB



Hi all,

I've been feeling happy and relaxed the past few days.  We've had some beautiful Spring weather, along with a few rainy days.  Whitesnake and I have been making the most of the sunshine by taking a few walks. Nothing like a walk in the sunshine to give mood and energy a boost. We put the clocks forward last weekend so we have an extra hour of daylight to enjoy too.

Enjoyed lunch with Whitesnake and my parents a couple of days ago. They had raved on about a new Indian restaurant and wanted us to try it out. Whitesnake isn't much of a curry lover and I couldn't image eating a curry for lunch, but it was delish. The atmosphere, decor, food and company was amazing. We had curry, a soft drink, rice and naan bread for just $10 each. A bargain.

P.S. We've been back for another curry since I first started writing this post.

P.P.S Whitesnake baked Turkish Bread and Orange Cake yesterday...YUM. I'm so lucky.

Keeping Up With KB



After a year of ups and downs, I can officially say that today I'm free from my old life. The house sale was finalised today and I'm free to start my new life with my darling Whitesnake. We've been together for three years this week. How time flies when we're having fun. I'm so excited!

Here are some pics from our walk around the Marina yesterday.

I Hear Wedding Bells



It's official - Whitesnake and I are engaged!

Photo source : KB's Room


One morning last month, Whitesnake informed me he had written a poem. There was nothing unusual in this so I told him I'd read it when I was online later. A little while later, he asked me again if I'd read it. I thought to myself that it must be a good one so I went to the computer to have a look. After reading the first couple of lines, I jumped up and said," Yes!" We were intending to keep this news between us until we told my parents but that wasn't to be.

Whitesnake and I post our poetry to the Helium writing site and a little while later, Whitesnake recieved an email from one of the Helium channel managers saying how wonderful his poem was and if she could share our story with Helium. We agreed and our story was posted to the Helium blog.

We attempted to inform my parents face-to-face a couple of times since then but couldn't due to illness and holidays. Finally, we could wait no more, we visited my parents this morning and shared our happy news.

Flash Fiction Friday - Mistaken Identity




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.

He travelled back in time to stop a murder. Carefully noting down every detail of the crime and how he intended to change the events of the day. The big day finally arrived, his efforts made no difference, a man still died. His notebook was found and used against him. Police arrested the wrong man.


I'm reading a fab book by Stephen King - 11.22.63, which gave me an idea for this story. I have no clue how the story turns out but this was one of the scenarios I came up with.

Our recipe today is...Simply Delish Meatloaf.






Have a great weekend all!

Goodbye Norma Jean




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.

Early years curling hair and applying makeup. The promise of stardom. Known as actress, model, singer and sex symbol. Bringing her little joy. Troubled life of illness and personal problems. Probable suicide at the age of thirty six was no way to end a life. What could have become of Norma Jean, fifty years on?  

Have a great weekend all!

I'm Entirely Bonkers




You're entirely bonkers but I'll tell you a secret, all the best people are.



Couldn't have said it better myself, Alice.

Cruelty Free Skin Care Products



Yay, I've finally found affordable, easily obtainable skin care products which are not tested on animals. When I first began my search after watching the Beagle Freedom Project Video, I didn't realise how expensive and difficult to obtain some of the products would be. Funnily enough, St Ives products were under my nose at the supermarket the whole time. I was already using the body cream but didn't realise it wasn't tested on animals because it was written in such small print. You'd think they'd want to tell the world that they didn't test on animals.

Thanks St Ives


My next mission is to do a research on the eggs we're buying. I was watching a programme the other day which showed how much farmers can get away with and still call their products 'free range'. Very interesting.
