The Perfect Child – Book Review

A page-turning debut of suspense about a young couple desperate to have a child of their own—and the unsettling consequences of getting what they always wanted.

Review :

Breathtaking. Just as I thought I had it figured out, the next dip in the roller-coaster was upon me. The book will appeal to woman who especially have a deep need to experience motherhood. It may be why you pick up the book but it won’t be anywhere near what you expect.

A Killer’s Wife

by Victor Methos

Fourteen years ago, prosecutor Jessica Yardley’s husband went to prison for a series of brutal murders. She’s finally created a life with her daughter and is a well-respected attorney. She’s moving on. But when a new rash of homicides has her ex-husband, Eddie, written all over them – the nightmares of her past come back to life.

Review :

I read and listen to many true crime podcasts and psychological thriller fictional books, so it takes something special to have me sit up and pay attention.

This book will appeal to anyone who enjoy courtroom drama’s and putting crime puzzles together, much like the series “Prodical Son”.

The characters are well rounded, developed in depth and each one forms a definite picture in your mind.

Mid way through “A Killer’s Wife”, I already looked up the author, and saved additional books written by Victor Methos. I cannot give a higher recommendation than that.

I wish you enough,

Wenchy

#nofilter beauty outside my door.


 I have been loving the rain. ☔
.
 My severe toothache turns out to be an “angry” infection under a tooth. It is the most toothache I have felt in a super long time. So, antibiotics and painkillers.
.
 The dosage of painkillers is making me tired but is very much needed. I’m seeing my lovely Dr Phillip from Fresher Breath Houghton again in two weeks. The most caring and gentle human who has access to very large needles. 
.
 My little garden from Checkers is coming along beautifully. Apparently I’m really good at growing Sunflowers and Kale! If that is not ying and yang, I don’t know what is.
.
 There seems to be a second wave  for the love of air fryers. #airfryerrecipes and are popping up everywhere! Mine is a number of years old already but I’ve used it maybe four times. Yes, I’m leaning towards Googling “can you make cake in an #airfryer? ” 藍

Manic Tuesday

I had a Monday of a Tuesday.

My day ended with a killer toothache. I can’t wait to see Dr PHILLIP. Love that man. Fresher Breath Houghton

The #americanelections ☠️ – that is all.

 I’m predicting seven goals for the Liverpool FC game. (5-0 close enough #ynwa #lfc)

 So much gratitude for waking up and seeing #teambuns BunsOut Burgers daily.

 SirNoid set out on an extensive exercise and weight loss regime towards the end of September 2020. He is going exceptionally well. I admire his dedication and discipline. Well done! Inspirational for sure.

 Ms Hayley Joy Shop is having a #monthofjoy instead of #blackFriday Hayley’s Joys is fabulous like that. I’ve got an impressive black based basic pieces collection, which we are now expanding into navy! I’m very excited by this. Ms Hayley made me a special cold shoulder top (my favourite, favourite cut) from fabric I admired. I look forward to showing it to you all!!

Awesome Nail Product Review

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

I have been biting my nails for as long as I’ve been dealing with anxiety, so basically since conception.

The product I reviewed, Betadine Emtrix is not a product to help you stop biting your nails.

It does improve the appearance, the quality of your nail bed, protecting and treating fungal infections and hence… healthier nails with no discolouration.


I used acrylic tips for years to cover up the shame of my awful looking nails. As much as it masked my terrible habit, it damaged my nail bed for life. Betadine Emtrix is awesome at helping repair my short comings. How often do you get to do that?


I now have my own long nails. Regardless of stress and anxiety, I do not bite my nails if it is painted. A healthy base, produces beautiful nails I can enjoy.

I wish you enough,
Wenchy

Beetroot chips are evil

🌺 Sometimes the ride is not smooth, but functional.
.
🌺 When I’m out and about and I see lots of cars, I always wonder where they are going, what they are doing and why they not at work.
.
🌺 I ate a beetroot chip today and broke a tooth. Imagine. So healthy I am being and my body thanks me by assaulting a tooth just minding its own business. Tomorrow I’m eating Krispy Kreme Rosebank – no tooth will move an enamel. My body is extra like that.
.
🌺 I’m putting my hair up daily because of the heat 🔥. Not my best look, but I hate the stupid heat.
.
🌺 I’m getting into the groove with getting to know people, suppliers and what to ask for at my new place of work.
.
🌺 I’m sucking at remembering names and am calling a guy who started just before me “new guy”. 😂 I blame Victoria. 👈
.
🌺 Struggling to find a lekker Audible book at the moment. Recommendations welcome. Just no romantic nonsense, futuristic, sci fi or time travel zombie crap.
.
I wish you enough,

Wenchy

My special ones.

 The children born from my heart. Blood does not a family make. Love does.
.
Everyday I open the curtains hoping for a little overcast. 
.
 Driving around town daily I am so aware of every beggar at the traffic light. I wish I could help everyone.
.
 My skin is not looking wonderful. Not sure what I’m doing wrong or if it is just the mask / heat combination.

Can’t hold the phone to write more

🧡 I spotted this from @blantons_bourbon on my travels today. Thought it was pretty cool.
.
🧡 Lack of #sleep and an excessive #stress response has thrown me into a kick ass #fibromyalgia trigger. It feels like every hair on my skin, the very pores hurt.
.
🧡 I’m doing this drivers test for my #insurance. Its kinda like Driving Miss Daisy but with no intelligent conversation. Can’t mess it up.
.
🧡 @chanty_nailed_it from @hairandskinexperts1 did my #halloween #nails today. #Orange is not a colour I have played with often.
.
🧡 Am so very thankful for my work at @bunsoutburgers   #teambuns rock.

Regret is not for the weak.

🍇 The past two days I’ve been tearful but no crying. Then I phoned my Kev in the 🇬🇧 UK and finally the tears just rolled down my cheeks.
.
🍇 He spoke about a family unit that doesn’t exist. He was stating a fact, the obvious. My Kev doesn’t pack for guilt trips.
.
🍇I felt the failure.
.
🍇 All I ever truly wanted was the white picket fence. To have the home my grandparents gave their children, and their grandchildren. A place of safety, consistency and unconditional love.
.
🍇 I think I got the unconditional love right. Not towards myself, but definitely towards others.
.
🍇 You only truly get one shot at this. They should teach that in Life Orientation at school but I guess #safesex is important too. Regret is not for the weak.

I wish you enough

Wenchy
