#expressyourself #MOvember @Cinfhen

Emilymdxn I love good and mad so much!! Rage becomes her is also on my list but not sure exactly when I‘ll get to it 1mo

This is as much a cookbook to curl up in bed with, as it is to cook from. Gorgeous photos, beautifully honest memoir sections with a dose of dark humor, and the kind of recipes you give up a whole day to. They are often real projects, with many homemade components, that will fill your home with amazing aromas, and give so much comfort and joy, in both preparing and eating. I wish I had more time to dedicate to this kind of cooking.... #oneday 😍

Cinfhen Looks fantastic 💓 2mo

Growing up near Brighton, every Friday night we had a #Chippytea picked up by my dad on his way home from work, and eaten straight from the newspaper at the kitchen table, dowsed in lots of onion vinegar (the vinegar from the picked onion jar)😋🐟📰
So in honor of my dad, this is the first book in his favorite local detective series, still going strong at book #26! I‘ll read it #oneday, seeing as it‘s set where I‘m from.😊

Cathythoughts Brilliant post 👍🏻♥️ 3mo
Ms_T Lots of nostalgia for you there! Great post 😃 3mo
Cinfhen Awwww, I‘m missing home for you❤️I‘d love to visit you in Brighton and hang with your dad 😁 3mo

EadieB @Cinfhen I‘ve read that one and getting ready to read book 2. 3mo
KarenUK @cinfhen ..... now that would be lovely! 💕 3mo
Cinfhen Wouldn‘t it !?!?!?! (edited) 3mo
gradcat @KarenUK & @Cinfhen Great Post! I‘ve read the first three of them, but then I guess I got sidetracked. I can‘t believe there are 26!! I had no idea! ♥️ (edited) 3mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen @gradcat @EadieB @Andrew65 @TrishB @KarenUK great post, and I haven't read this series! 3mo
TrishB Lovely post ❤️ I am up to date in this series @Cinfhen 🎉🎉 3mo
Andrew65 Love this book series, one of my favourites. Unfortunately as currently suffering with gall bladder issues cannot have fish and chips and I so love them, and especially by the sea! 3mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi @gradcat @EadieB @TrishB @KarenUK @Cinfhen Unfortunately I am totally up to date on this series. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 so the problem is your gall bladder? 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Poor you! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB It looks like that! Testing for biliary colic and gall stones! Which are both affecting the liver. Did second set of blood tests this week today, got another blood test next week. Waiting for ultra sound scan date and got endoscopy next Saturday so feeling a bit sorry for myself, not to mention the pain. 😔 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks, but possibly feeling too sorry for myself! At least when at work kept busy and keeps my mind off it. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 So sorry to hear that you have to go through all of those tests etc. Not fun! Hope they solve your problem and you are feeling better soon! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes, fingers crossed, and thanks. Hope they can solve it quickly. Not the best thing on the first week of a school year! 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely not! Good that you have your deputy to help you. But bad that she is so new and probably needs your direction. 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Thankfully so far just been missing for small bits of the day for tests. Just not as far on as I‘d like to be. Better now than last year. (edited) 3mo
LeahBergen Yum!! I‘m craving a chippy tea now! 3mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 oh man that is no fun, I had that and needed up have gall bladder removed. Hope you find some answers 3mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks, definitely agree about being no fun! Just in waiting game for scan at moment. Apparently urgent only means likely to be some time in the next two weeks! 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 I hope you get seen to sooner rather than later...isn‘t that painful? 😣 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks. Yes! Although pain going up and down. Bigger problem is what can develop from it. 🤞 Eating a very bland diet which will hopefully be less painful. 3mo

Double Indemnity | James M. Cain
post image


(Day 7 - #TaintedLove)

*This movie is most definitely an example of “tainted love.” It came from the tagged novella by James M. Cain. It‘s such an oldie but goodie; I highly recommend the movie if you‘ve never seen it.

Palimpsest I adore Barbara Stanwyck (edited) 8mo
gradcat @Palimpsest I know! Wasn‘t she so great? Plus, Fred MacMurray really slays in that role! Who‘d‘ve thunk it—if you ever saw the tv show “My Three Sons”! 8mo
Cinfhen My fabulous cohosts read the book for their family bookclub and all 3 loved the book!!! It‘s still on my #OneDay list 8mo

emilyhaldi Yes!!!! Cindy is right, we loved this book 🤩 8mo
rretzler Fantastic movie. Still haven‘t read the book - which is unusual for me. 8mo
rretzler 💕 My Three Sons! 8mo
Mdargusch I almost used this book for the prompt too! Perfect! 8mo
Reviewsbylola Loved this book. Cain is awesome. 8mo
kspenmoll Great movie! 8mo
gradcat @Cinfhen You really must read it...then watch the movie...or vice versa...I think either way is fine, so long as you do it, right @emilyhaldi @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola ? 😂👍 8mo
gradcat @kspenmoll @rretzler I think you can be forgiven for not reading the book in this case, because the movie is just that good. The book is rather short, if I‘m remembering correctly...I believe it‘s a novella. 8mo
gradcat @rretzler I forgot to mention my happiness over someone knowing “My Three Sons!” 😂🥰👍 8mo
rretzler 😂 My Three Sons was one of my favorite shows back in the day! 8mo

#TimbitTunes The tagged book has been lingering in my #BookOutlet cart for months. It‘s a book I want to read but don‘t want to read because I‘m sure it‘s going to be so heartbreaking. It was a #BlackDayInJuly when JFK Jr plane disappeared after a stormy night takeoff. Carole Radziwill was a close friend of the couple & they were related through marriage. It‘s her account of this tragedy coupled with the illness of her husband.

LeahBergen That seems like yesterday. 😩 10mo
Cinfhen 1999 @LeahBergen crazzzy!!!!! 10mo
Crazeedi This was just a tragedy 10mo

Cinfhen Yes, it‘s a moment you don‘t forget @Crazeedi like when Princess Diana was killed or you learned Michael Jackson has passed away😢😢😢 And obviously the towers falling will forever be etched in my psyche 10mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It‘s so sad, but so good!! 10mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen you forgot Prince💜 10mo
Cinfhen You‘re right!! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks but I honestly don‘t remember where I was when I heard about Prince. 10mo
Sweettartlaura You know his aunt, Lee Radziwill, just died, yes? Jackie‘s younger sister. 10mo
BarbaraBB Did Lady Diana‘s death make such an impression in the States? I wouldn‘t have imagined! And yes, I too can remember exactly where I was when hearing of her death, Michael Jackson‘s and 9/11 😢 10mo
Cinfhen Yes, I saw that @Sweettartlaura Lee Radziwill was Carole‘s MIL. 10mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! It was massive in the states @BarbaraBB Diana was so beloved 😍 10mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen I was at work 😭😭😭 we all made little symbols for our badges !! (edited) 10mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @BarbaraBB it did on me,,, I remember where I was that night too... 😭😭😭 10mo
TrishB This does seem like yesterday 😔 time flies.... 10mo
KarenUK I did actually buy it from book outlet but now it‘s lingering on my shelves for the same reason!#infinitetissueread 😢 10mo
Reviewsbylola Amazing book! I still remember when I first heard his plane went missing. I need to reread this one. 10mo

Brooklyn reminds me of something i really really want to get to soon.

Well, Francie decided, 'I guess the thing that is giving me this headache is life - and nothing else but'.
