Carl stood in the darkened room, she was getting feisty, a month ago she wouldn’t have said boo to him and now she was standing her ground. He liked that, it was more of a challenge. He was looking forward to what she had to say to him when she came round. He hadn’t found the necklace in her room, he had looked but to no avail, this job wasn’t going to be as easy as he had initially thought. He watched her as she slept, the rhythm of her shallow breathing calmed him and he found her strangely attractive.

Meanwhile less than a mile away from Carl’s rented room, Mr Joseph Peasbody was pacing around his hallway, worried half to death about where the girl had disappeared to, he had promised Robert he would keep her safe and now he had lost her. He was confused she…

The girl was angry, angrier than she had been for a long time… Carl’s eyes had given him away she had seen the real him. Instead of being scared though she was angry it seemed like everyone she knew was keeping things from her or trying to get something from her…Why?

Lost in her thoughts she realised she was standing in front of the door where she was staying and a kind looking man was smiling at her.

“Did you have nice walk? The weather is lovely isn’t it? Come in, Come in you must be hungry.” She followed the man into the dining room where there was a lovely table set with a beautiful white cloth and some very pretty flowers. “Sit down my dear …I will ring Jenny to bring in breakfast…”

Within a few minutes a smiling girl appeared carrying a beautiful…

Retired No One Told Me…Weekly Roundup…Salt Farming, Matcha and the Little Penguin.

Retired No One Told Me! Weekly roundup

Welcome once again to my weekly roundup and I thought I would have fewer posts as I now only have the one blog but no…even more although we had the Bloggers Bash and I have started my travel ones so it soon tots up… So I would make a pot of tea or have that coffee percolator brewing as you get comfortable in your favourite chair and have a read… I hope you enjoy x

First, we have one of my Travel Thailand posts and it is Salt farming in Northern Thailand.

https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2018/05/17/salt-farming-in-northern-thailand-2/

Fruity Fridays and one of my favourites the Tomato which goes with nearly everything…I just love them pickled, dried and I love my fried bread cooked in the tomato juice … Don’t they look lovely just eaten like an apple with a little salt…

https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2018/05/18/fruity-fridays-the-tomato/

Matcha and Green Tea …The differences and how to make a lovely cup of green tea which is not bitter. I always drank Green tea now and again and had to force myself and tell myself it was good for me…Now I know how to make it I can savour a cup and it is lovely.

https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2018/05/19/matcha-green-tea/

The Charade it is getting exciting and I am loving co-writing this and even I don’t know what is going to happen next…The only thing I do know is who is the villain here but is he the only one?

 

https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2018/05/19/the-charade-chapter-17/

Well, lots of people love Green tea and Matcha but it did raise the question which is better for you?? All will be revealed so step inside…

Perth is where my beloved daughter lives and I love it…The very first place we visited was Perth and it did not disappoint…That little penguin on Penguin Island was so cute..

Retired No One Told Me! Weekly Roundup…Apples, Crispy Crackling and Mr M…

 

Weekly Roundup Retired no one told me! 17th May

Welcome to this weeks roundup of posts…As from this week, it will only contain posts from Retired No one told me…I have decided I am only going to run one blog…It is too much and I am not getting time to write as much as I would like so I have decided not to renew the domain forthwith.

First, out of the starting blocks, this week was my interview x 20 questions with the lovely Esme… from The Recipe Hunter…If you really want to know more about me then head over and have a read… I am sure it will be enlightening…haha

Fruity Fridays…

I thought I would showcase the Apple as although the apple is very popular I also think it is slightly taken for granted as a fruit.

Carol cooks! (1) Apples Collage

I absolutely love seeing the trees covered in the apple blossom …don’t you?

It then was the turn of one of the attractions for which Thailand is known for and that is the beautiful temples …

Wat Pa Phu Kon (27)

Then I reblogged an interview with a man who needs no introduction…The one and only Mr M… a man who always supports us and is a true gentleman.

Obesity which is a worldwide problem and it seems to be one which is more prevalent in the western world due to many lifestyle factors…Little or no exercise, eating too much processed foods, sugars, salt and fast foods, eating on the go or sitting in front of the TV all day because the countries which eat their meals together, cook from scratch and walk instead of driving have a much lower incidence of obesity.

Travel Thailand and the tradition of weaving …Weaving is still carried out often under the houses and the skill passed down through the generations is still going strong…We were lucky to discover a lady weaving on her loom under her house who allowed us to take photos…I just love it when we are out and about and chance upon a scene like this it makes it all the more special.

Chapter Eleven

She was so shocked at this man’s words she staggered slightly and the old man pulled a chair from behind the counter for her to sit on. He watched her with concern. “Sit, sit.”

   “But Sir how could you know my Mother, even I don’t remember her well?” She accepted a cup of some warm liquid from him.

   “I didn’t know her well but still I thought she was a very special lady, maybe I like to think I knew her better than I really did, I don’t suppose she would remember me anyway. I fell in love a little when I first saw her, you are very much like her. Tell me what brings you into this kind of town?”

   She could barely grasp what he was saying to her. Why wouldn’t she live round here? “I’m sorry Sir.”
