It feels like I’ve been pregnant for ever. I know I will miss her little kicks and punches when she leaves my tummy but having her in my arms is something I’m looking forward to very much as we have been trying for two and a half years for her. So it has been such a long waiting game for us but the end is in sight very soon.
While I was catching up with some reading on one of my favourite blogs thereadingresidence I found out that they are doing a #BringBackPaper pledge. Which I think is a fantastic idea as these days everything is very much electronic. With Ipads, smart phones, ereading devices and even smart watches! Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with electrical devices I have a few of them myself, but I love going back to just a paper and pencil, or holding a paperback in my hand.
So my #BringBackPaper pledge is to carry on using my paper blog planner for the rest of the year and recording my blog development progress and ideas as she hopefully grows throughout the year. Oh and to keep up with my reading of course!
And then Frank Lindbergh is attacked by an intruder in his home … an intruder who wears Frank’s face.
In the heart of the city, a mansion stands on a hill and behind its wrought-iron fence an evil force is at work, leaving everyone who comes near it hysterical with fear.
But the real terror lies inside the house. Tess and Frank have no choice but to confront a mistake made years ago. A mistake that summoned an ancient evil … and means even their own reflections could kill them.
