Hippy Life Continues.

Ok, so we've been living in our cosy little caravan for, what, about 6 weeks now. And I gotta tell ya. Life is good. I've never felt so peaceful and contented. Don't get me wrong, we still have our little spats about work and stuff, but nothing like we used to have.

Every morning we wake up and it's bright, no matter how gloomy it is outside, it's bright in here. That's probably down to the pink curtains, but I like it! We have breakfast together outside if it's not raining and then he goes off to work. I sort my Dad out and then spend an hour doing whatever needs doing. Whether it be boring stuff like laundry or ebay, or it could be reading or writing if nothing else needs me. I then roll into work for an hour or 2 and sort out postage etc. When that's done, I do a bit of food shopping and come back home. The rest of the day is mine. I spend a lot of time reading outside. It's great! I'm tanned for the first time since I left Canada!

In the evenings, we watch films together, sometimes while doing a little bit of work for ebay but mostly, not. We chat and laugh loads, which is lovely! On Sundays, we've been going for long walks, picking blackberries and raspberries and coming home to bake pies or crumbles. Perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday! We barbecue for tea several times a week and I've even started having the odd beer or glass (bottle) of wine with the guys. I'm so much more chilled out now!

We are still looking for the right bus but we are getting closer each week. We have had to build up stock in our computer shop in preparation for when we leave it, so that takes up a lot of time and money, but we're getting there.

I'm trying to start seeing my friends again and start having a life outside of Twitter. Don't get me wrong, I love my Twitter friends and I'm so grateful for them, but sometimes a virtual hug just isn't the same as a real one. I need to start making time for people again. We've booked to go to our first ever music festival at the end of this month. It's fairly local and a lot of the bands they have on, we had at the club (we used to run a live music venue, about 5 years ago), so that's pretty cool. We're taking the caravan with us. So basically, I'm taking my home to a festival with me! Haha! I'm really looking forward to it!

Right, well, that's you all caught up now, I think. :)

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer

Welcome to my stop on the Blog blitz for the fabulous third Instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series!


What They Say:

One girl found dead. Another girl gone... Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever... When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer. No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial-killer.  As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.  Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’…
