I never get tired of playing around with this app.
I took the original shot when the Boyfriend and I were at Thorpe Park last week, just after we had come off this roller coaster. I liked the idea that this signified just about the exact point that the big adrenaline rush kicks in.
because on days like today, this is what happens.
1. 4:30 of the AM
Spend five minutes studying trousers thinking as I do so, “I don’t remember my work trousers having pockets.”
Try putting them on, then realising they don’t fit, start to panic that I’ve shrunk them in the dryer.
Spend five minutes continuing to try fitting into them, cursing myself a lot before it dawns on my that they aren’t actually my trousers.
2. 5:10 of the AM
Get in my car and spend several minutes readjusting everything as it was last driven by the other half, and wishing I could afford a car with memory seats.
Plug in my iPhone and iPod, start it up and set off. As I look at the house opposite my car park, I find I can’t read the sign by the door, 20 feet away from me. Realise I haven’t put in my contact lenses. Neither am I wearing my glasses. Life truly is a blur.
3. 2.45 of the PM
Get home from work.
Since I have nowhere else to go today, I decide to get changed into comfy clothes and veg out. This is when I realise my über comfy one piece support bra, really lives up to its name, as it appears I’ve been wearing it back to front all day.
As long as I don’t repeat myself tomorrow, I think I’ll be OK…..
I can honestly say I cannot remember the last time a book had me really laughing out loud, but this one achieved that on numourous occasions.
The combination of wizardry and the metropolitan police is simply pure genius, and long may this series continue.
Here’s the challenge.
You can follow my rather shoddy progress on Instagram by following JoKawasaki.
I want to be Jack Troutbeck.
Sometimes when I need a break from heavy action and violent crime I turn american cosy crimes. They are like my guilty little pleasure. There are lots of great series out there, from coffee shop and tea shop mysteries, to bakery and vineyard mysteries, and everything you can think of in between.
The Missing Ink is the first in the Tattoo shop mysteries, and I was intrigued to see how it would work. I am pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised, it worked really well.
As is usual I read it in less than a day because it had enough going on to keep you curious and involved all the way through.
If you like the cosy crimes of MC Beaton, and haven’t tried any American cosy’s yet then this is as good a place to start as any.
Here’s the list for April. If you want to see the pictures, I’ve started posting them over here (although it’s not fully up to date yet)
And I’m not kidding. Even Bossy Bertha the Sat Nav agrees with me.
and for those of you who now have a certain song stuck in your head, here’s the video.
