Some of you may already know I’m a big motorsports fan. When Mark Webber left Formula One to join Porche in the World Endurance Championships, I snapped up tickets to the British race as soon as I could.
The race is six hours long and I was worried it might get boring, but it wasn’t for one second. There are four classes of racing going on within one race so there is always something to look at.
The race was red flagged and ended about 30 minutes before it was due to end because of torrential rain. As it was a six hour race though we didn’t feel ripped off.
It was a fantastic race and I wish I had the holiday time left to go to Le Mans.
But her suspicions deepen with the grotesque murder near the hospital of another pregnant woman – her belly drained of amniotic fluid. And when a woman miscarries in the hospital and then disappears, Jill frantically searches for her – following a terrifying path that seems to link all the victims: Is someone playing with life…and the structures of human life itself?’
I really enjoyed LUSH’s Buche de Noel and after I finished that off I was on the lookout for something similar.
On one of the rare sunny days we had earlier this year me and my Mum visited a reservoir near us called Chasewater.
We did some of our training for the half marathon here last year, so it was nice to return and not be running around it and tiring ourselves out.
I have already used this and I love it. The smell is lovely, I can’t quite describe it, and it left my skin feeling very soft and looking really clear.
Again I’ve already tried this and love it, I will of course do a full review. It smells like mint ice cream *drools*.
I suggested he gave it a go and he liked it, so that’s now migrated to his side of the room.
I received a little sample of The Olive Branch shower gel with my order. Is this something LUSH usually do? I didn’t get one in my first order from them, though that was during the Christmas Sale.
It smells nice and I’m looking forward to trying it.
Description from Goodreads: ‘It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.
Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.
Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.
Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.’
