go to site Image of the book Eloise by Judy Finnigan

http://gatehousegallery.co.uk/?myka=fineco-operazioni-binarie&36f=93 I am seriously derived of reading material at the moment so I picked this up at the charity shop in Newark. Eloise is a book written by Judy Finnigan (from Richard and Judy fame) and it is her first book. The story, set in Cornwall, is about Cathy whose best friend Eloise has passed away from cancer. Cathy starts seeing Eloise in her dreams and gets frustrated as Eloise keeps warning her that her twin daughters will come to harm and to keep them away from her husband Tom.

click here Cathy’s husband Chris, who is a psychiatrist, does not believe her at all and believes that she is heading towards a break down. Mental illness is a strong theme in this book, there is this constantly to and throwing because Cathy has had a previous breakdown she is constantly doubted by her husband. Without giving too much away we learn a lot about Eloise’s family and it becomes a race against time to save the twins from danger and for Cathy to leave for London permanently.

The book for me was a real slow burner, half the book was about Cathy grappling with her dreams about Eloise. To be honest I was getting sick of it, as well as the really long rambling descriptions of Cornwall. Maybe because I haven’t been to Cornwall so couldn’t relate at all. But it just went on and on and on. The book just didn’t really get going until the last quarter really.

una mujer soltera puede adoptar un niГ±o I couldn’t shake the feeling with the book that Cathy was Judy so the main character I just keep imaging is Judy, which was frustrating. You could tell Judy loves Cornwall and although the rambling descriptions annoyed me you could see it was full of meaning. In the authors notes Judy mentions that Caron Keating (daughter of Gloria Hunningford) who died of cancer in 2004 did inspire Eloise’s character. I have actually read both Gloria Hunningford’s books about Caron’s death and I knew that they were both close (Judy was mentioned in the books) and I did wonder if Eloise was based on her. The book is alright but I have read better and it wouldn’t be a book that I would recommend.

opzioni binarie puntata minima Having been listening to Emma Gannon’s Ctrl, Alt Delete podcast I just so happened to listen to the episode with Dawn O’Porter and it was such a good programme and her latest book sounded so right up my street so I thought, why not! So if you are looking for a new book, that will give you a laugh with strong women that make mistakes and learn a lot about themselves then read ahead!

http://talkinginthedark.com/introducing-vanilla/2017/01/ The Cows is about three women, Tara who is 42 and works as a documentary maker. She is constantly belittled at work by her misogynistic male colleges. Tara also has a 6 year old child from a one-night stand but the father does not know about the child. There is Stella, who is still mourning the death of her twin sister and mother from cancer, also she has the BRCA gene (which puts her at high risk of developing cancer) and is yearning for children although at the same time her relationship is falling apart. Finally there is Cam Stacey, owner of the blog howitis.com. Through the blog she has turned into a bit of a feminist icon as she doesn’t want children, much to the dismay of her mother.

premarin 1.25 no prescription The story really gets going when Tara gets caught masturbating (yes really, I wasn’t expecting that either) on the tube as she is travelling home after a date with a guy called Jason and a nearby passenger films it on his phone. The footage gets put on YouTube and goes viral. Tara becomes the butt of all jokes overnight, she can’t eat, she doesn’t want to leave the house, she got a warning from the police and she has lost her job. Tara finds solace in Cam Stacey who has been the only person to support her by writing a blog post sticking up for her after the tube incident. They soon strike up a friendship and constantly email each other. Stella on the other hand is Jason’s PA, it just so happens Jason is on an internet ban as he tries to finish his book. Therefore Stella goes to great lengths to protect Jason from finding out about Tara. Yes, it does feel very six degrees of separation.

go to site I am not going to lie this book is a bit bat-shit crazy. There are a lot of themes touched here – feminism, misogyny, whether you should tell the father of your child that he has a child. The fact that women enjoying sex is deemed to be wrong (there is nothing wrong with it, just not on public transport regardless if you are male or female!). The characters are all flawed in some way and that women are just as bad as men. For example Tara is judgement about all the Mum’s at the school gates, thinking that they all stay at home and that they all judge her when she comes to the gates, on her own, from work. Which we find out later it couldn’t be further from the truth. Cam doesn’t see that her fuck buddy has feelings for her and when she does she tries to dismiss them. Stella is probably the most flawed of all- she literally does everything wrong. She lies and trolls all for her selfish gain. What I did like from the book that as the women are older, so you see clearly the impact of their actions unlike books about women in their twenties who are just starting out.

Wolf Run shirt

pariet 200mg 5ml So I completed the Summer Wolf Run in Stanford Hall, Leicester this weekend which was tricky but good! The Wolf Run (Wolf stands for Woods, Obstacles, Lakes and Fields) is a running event which is 10k filled with wading through mud, crawling through trees, swimming through water, and climbing over obstacles and running! There is the opportunity to bring your family members to watch and there are loads of food stalls to get your burger and pint after the race and amusements to keep the kids entertained! To enter in the Wolf Run, you sign up online and collect your race number on the day once you have handed in your disclaimer form. There is a key drop for your car keys and a bag drop for those that travelled by public transport. If you complete each Wolf Run (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) then you get the Alpha Wolf Medal and shirt. Once you have completed the Wolf Run, you receive a goody bag consisting of a Wolf Run shirt, water bottle and a Cliff bar snack before you run off to the shower facilities to get the worse of the mud off!

The obstacles

risperdal 4 mg flash I cannot remember all of them but here is a list of what to expect if you run one:

  • Crawling through overgrowth
  • Climbing obstacles ranging from climbing walls to the climbing nets.
  • Mud swamps (lots of them)
  • Swimming in open water and a lake
  • Wading through ditches
  • Climbing over tyres
  • Crawling through a tube

The training and my Wolf Run experience

prazosin 500mg nedir I hadn’t trained much beforehand because my knee was so sore, so running was swapped for swimming. I could tell there was something up with my knee because I could feel it clicking loads in the pool! As I am not a strong swimmer, the swimming did not replace the running like for like in terms of fitness. And my god I could tell that I had lost some of that fitness.

Regarding my experience of the Wolf Run, I have literally no upper arm strength and that is where I struggled as there was a lot of wading through mud swamps and oh my god that mud was horrendous. Everyone was getting stuck, it felt like quicksand, I literally had guys pulling me up onto the log. At one point I nearly fainted I think it was just with all of the adrenaline and maybe the shock of being stuck in the mud for so long threw me a bit. After walking 2k and missing a couple of obstacles for my own safety and so I could gain some strength back I was off again. I did miss the two swimming ones just because I am a weak swimmer and I didn’t want to put myself or anyone else that would have to rescue me in danger. The race was well thought out with obstacles spaced out evenly giving you the chance to recover from a few of the tougher obstacles. The obstacles were various levels of challenging with the chance to run round if you didn’t feel up to it.

So what did I learn from completing the Wolf Run?

  • For gawddd sake don’t take any valuables. It was a last minute thing for me to take of my engagement ring and I am glad I did as that would have been long gone in the mud.
  • Running and obstacle running are two different things. Obstacle running requires a lot of upper arm strength, something I didn’t really think about until I was actually running the course. I would recommend putting in some upper strength training before the run.
  • I don’t think it is a beginners or a fun run like Pretty Muddy (but it isn’t timed so you can take your time). Personally I would get some fitness in as it will help you in the long run.
  • Wear old clothes, yes the mud did wash off after putting on the washing machine TWICE but since you will be crawling through trees.

Image of Ladybird by Design book

My latest book review is on Ladybird by Design by Lawrence Zeegen. The author of the book, Lawrence Zeegen is Dean of the School Design and Professor of Illustration at Ravensbourne University so he is more than qualified to fully understand why the design of Ladybird has contributed to its success. I love vintage Ladybird books and have a small collection of the vintage books myself. When my partner gave me this book as a gift, I was excited to get reading. Ladybird by Design is about the history of Ladybird through the design of the books whilst exploring the different series, artists and authors.

The book is laid out in four main chapters the first gives a history of the Ladybird company starting out as printers Wills and Hepworth in Loughborough who were printing children’s copies as a side job from printing brochures as well as paper shortages brought on by the outbreak of the second world war meant that the size of the books were reduced. With space extremely tight the front and the back cover were utilised with diagrams, images and information about other books available in the series. The second chapter it goes into detail about the artists such as Robert Lumley, Eric Winter and Charles Tunnicliffe as well as the history about the individual series such as the famous Key Words series.

The third chapter steps away from the artwork and explores the other fundamentals of the Ladybird books including typography, foreign editions, logos, language and typeface all important in the creation of the Ladybird book.

The final chapter focuses on Ladybird moving forward into the modern world, it goes into detail about Ladybird being sold to Pearson, the TV tie-ins which have provided to be a positive for Ladybird with Peppa Pig bringing in millions and moving into different formats such as tapes and apps and baby books.

The book gives such a comprehensive view in the history of Ladybird but also the individual artists involved in the iconic covers. It also provides a critical view as well one example is how the books were not diverse and provided a very cliched view of life in modern life in the UK. Whether you are a massive fan of the books or just like the illustrations it really is worth a read.

Image of the book Gallery of the Dead by Chris Carter

*Spoiler alert – this post may contain spoilers.

I am not a massive crime fan but I really love Chris Carter’s books. I have already reviewed two of them One by One and The Night Stalker but the Gallery of the Dead, released earlier this year, is by far I feel his best yet.

The Gallery of the Dead starts of with a model who is found skinned with blood everywhere and latin carved into her back by a knife. In a twist of events this time the FBI (Special Agent Fisher and Special Agent Williams) are involved as they have had similar discoveries and think it is a serial killer. In addition one of the murder victims happened to be a niece of one of the FBI’s members. This family link in return slowed the FBI investigation down because they were searching for somebody who they thought were killing in revenge but as the bodies pile up it is clear that it isn’t a revenge killing so the FBI and LAPD shift focus to thinking that the killer is creating masterpieces with the bodies.

It is really interesting reading about the relationship that the LAPD and FBI have, it is clear Hunter doesn’t really care and just wants to catch the killer. Garcia and Special Agent Fisher take an instant dislike to each other to the extent that when the FBI gives them the low down on the case so far Garcia nearly finds himself off the case with all the sarcasm he is dishing at Special Agent Fisher.

I found this part of the book harder to read as I really like Garcia and this how backwards and forwards tit for tat really makes him sound like ass. Special Agent Fisher sounds like ass too and this image builds up of her as being this ice queen. She answers her phone and Garcia spots that the image being of a teenager with down syndrome. We later discover that is her daughter. This theme of the LAPD and FBI not getting along as much runs through the book and I wonder (with me being a British reader) whether this is a common theme in American crime.

In this book you can see Hunter is dating a criminal Psychologist, Professor Tracey Adams from UCLA. Long time readers of the books you will know that Hunter keeps himself to himself which I think, and I feel indicated, is certainly due to the fact that his mother died of cancer when he was seven and his father died in a shooting. The relationship doesn’t develop much in this book as Hunter won’t let it. Hunter wants to run a few background checks. I definitely think this storyline will be explored on more detail in the next book.

As we move through the book, the chapters are interspersed with criminal killing the victims, these chapters really have lots of gruesome details and it makes you feel sick. Nearer the end, Hunter and Garcia find out that the killer is collecting body parts and via Fisher they have tracked down his whereabouts to a disused farm in the middle of nowhere. As Garcia and Hunter take the house and Fisher and Williams take the barn, shots are fired and we find that Agent Fisher has shot dead Agent Williams, Agent Fisher then turns on Hunter and Garcia and shoots them both (I won’ tell you why and if they survive, you will have to read the book!)

That plot twist was intense, certainly more than the other books I have read by Chris. The book is long at over 500 pages but it was enough to keep me going and entertained. The only things that are starting to annoy me about the book’s is repeating Garcia’s and Hunters back story to the extent that I am pretty certain Chris has copied it word from word from another of his books. To sum up, if you like a fast paced book with plenty of gore then this book is perfect.
