Round-up of the week – 7 April 2019

World news:

A ferryboat has crashed into a bridge in Pará, in Brazil’s northern state, plunging a 200m section into the Moju River.
After the ship crashed into one of the pillars, witnesses said they saw two cars fall into the water.
Scuba divers are searching the river, and it is unclear how many people have been hurt yet.

London news:

A charity in charge of mental health home is being investigated after a 19 year-old girl took her life in Lancaster lodge in Richmond in May 2016. The teenager hanged herself, one year after being admitted to the home.

The Charity Commission has now opened an inquiry into the management of the home. An inquest into the girl’s death in February found the facility’s leadership “grossly inadequate”.


Pão de Queijo

My news:
Completed two months at my new job and guess I have to stop thinking of it as my new job now. Still loving it although the workload is intense. The director at my work introduced me to Pão de Queijo, Brazilian cheese bread which is made, without wheat. I’ve included Pão de Queijo in my Children from the Streets series but never tasted it until Wednesday. It was so nice, that I decided to make it myself on Saturday (see photo.)

My writing:
Still working frantically on the edits of Trial & Retribution, book five in The Children of the Streets series.
