With the sun out, I managed to dry the last of my curtains. It’s been a job I’ve wanted to do for ages. And as I’ve got plenty of time on my hands, and the weather playing nice for a change, I made the most of it.
I gad a very lazy day today, I did the curtains and that was it. I had a pyjama day. I spoke to family and friends via FB and whattsapp.
Might even try a few cocktails (but with the lack of alcohol, it might be a little tricky.
Thinking some people really don’t know the meaning of “social distancing” the amount of people I’ve seen walking past my window in groups has been larger today, than for the last few days. Is it because it’s Friday? The start of the weekend? Or is it because people think the virus won’t strike on a weekend?
Hope everyone is staying indoors and staying safe. It’s beginning to sink in around my area, I’m not seeing as many people walk around. But the weekend should be interesting, will we find the selfish people visiting parks, beaches and family members? I do hope not.
We were asked this evening to stand by our front doors, or our windows and show our appreciation to the people who are working in our health service. To show our support we were invited to clap (not sure how long for) it didn’t seem to last long around our area, and not many people came out, but checking on FB, it looked like a lot of other areas showed their support. I also heard a few fireworks.
Another sunny day, another day watching people walk by, are they all going to work? Are they just going shopping? Or are they meeting up with friends? Watching the news, scrolling on FB, or talking to friends and family on the phone, more and more people are getting onboard with social distancing, but what is making people cross are the ignorant people, those people that can’t bear to be indoors, that have to be out!! What more do people want? What don’t people understand?
My prime minister gave a press conference yesterday. Advising everyone that if you don’t need to go out, then stay in!! I don’t think it will be long before a proper lock down will be in place. Police will be patrolling more, giving out fines if necessary. Let’s hope the people that don’t need to be out, will actually stay indoors.
Rant over …… let me tell you about my day.
Did more cleaning, watched a few people walk, jog or stroll by the house. Definitely less footfall today. Caught up with people via text, FaceTime and calls.
Reading and writing a few reviews, also looking at starting a few audio reviews (do you think it should be an audio review?)
Sun out again today, so washing went out on the line.
Not going to remind myself how many days I’ve been self isolating anymore.
Made a list of cleaning….. one room to take two days. A proper deep clean.
Watching the world go by via the window…. but what makes me cross are the kids playing outside, the groups of people chatting outside in the sun!! I know it’s hard, but come on people, the longer we stay outside, the longer it’s going to take to clear this virus. *rant over*
Making videos for work each day, just a silly 30 seconds of dancing, it cheers me up, and the positive comments (if it makes people smile, who cares if I’m being silly)
Caught up with a few reviews. And sorted my reading pile by the bed…..
Hoping your all staying safe and keeping as sane as you can.
Fury Unleashed (Forgotten Brotherhood series) book 1 by N.J Walters
Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an
assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful
assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky—but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.
Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer––that’s definitely too good to be
true—she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen
angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.
Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.
Maccus has been on earth for a very long time. An assassin. A fallen angel (a friend betrayed him and he fell) but he’s become a very powerful fallen. Learning all manner of weaponry and skills. He survived his wings being taken from him when he fell from heaven, he learned to survive hell, and everything that was thrown at him, so he’s distrustful of others, yes he’s surly and never smiles, but I don’t think I’d be too sociable either. And someone wants him dead. Good luck with that, he’s not easy to kill…..
Morrigan gave up her life and soul to protect her baby sister. She’s now a bounty hunter for lucifer. She’s good at her job, no innocents, just bad humans and demons. She hates her job, it’s a lonely one, but what else can she do about it? She has twenty five years of servitude, she’s done ten, only another fifteen to go!!
OMG!!! Morrigan finds out the guy she’s been sent out to kill is “The Hunter” an elite killer, this is going to be impossible, she’s not going to be able to fill out the contract with Lucifer, her soul will be dammed, and she will be tortured for eternity!!
We follow Maccus and Morrigan through a series of twists and turns. Watch as Maccus struggles with his feelings for Morrigan, he can’t trust her, can he? She’s there to kill him, but he’s also got to kill her. It’s a whole lot of mess, but he can’t deny the sparks that fly between them. Morrigan on the other hand has accepted that Maccus will kill her eventually, so she’s going to enjoy her time with him whilst it lasts. But she can’t help hoping its not for a long time, she’s come to understand the warrior and somehow ease his troubles, if only for a little while. And she’s determined to see a smile on that gorgeous face.
There is something going on in the background? Why would lucifer and Gabriel want Morrigan and Maccus dead? They work for opposite sides, is there something going on that lucifer and Gabriel only know about?
The forgotten are a band of immortals that clubbed together to give each other information. They hardly ever meet up (being on your own for centuries can cause paranoia) Maccus and a vampire called Asher (there is a story there that I’m sure we will hear about eventually) started up the Band of Immortals.
I liked this book, very fast paced, lots of action (maybe just a little less of the sex scenes) very detailed. The streets of New York came alive with the details that the author wrote about. The characters were great, very likeable, there didn’t seem any fillers (people in the book that didn’t need to be there) Hoping we get another book soon. Hoping we get to meet the Band of Immortals.
I hope you all had a good day. Sadly my son couldn’t join me for Mother’s Day this year, we are on a lockdown. Had a lovely chat via phone. Not the same, but at least I know he’s safe in his own home.
Popped up to spend time with my daughter at her graveside today. It was great to get out in the sun and the fresh air, funny how you take the little things for granted.
The garden got the full works today, and it’s looking much better. Trimmed and mowed and weeded.
The news didn’t bring any good news, more shops are closing. Hard times are ahead, but we need to support each other, and we need to stay indoors, otherwise I see us being on complete lockdown and martial law!!!
