Round-up of the week 21st April 2019

World news:

Map showing locations of explosions
Attacks in Sri Lanka

Eight blasts have been reported in Sri Lanka targeting churches and hotels, killing at least 207 and 450 are thought to have been hurt.
Three of the explosions were in churches during Easter Sunday services.

A national curfew has been put in place “until further notice” and social media networks have been temporarily blocked.
A foreign ministry official has said at least 27 foreign nationals are among the dead.

My cousin and her family are in Colombo at the moment, keep safe Brenda, Gary and family.

London News:

Jason Isaacs
Man convicted of murder of teenager, Jason Isaacs shown above.

Jason Isaacs, 18, was walking with friends in Northolt in November 2017 when he was targeted by four people of two mopeds. They chased him, he became separated from his friends before he was caught by this gang who proceeded to stab him several times. Jason collapsed in a garden and died three days later in hospital.

Joel Amade, also 18, of Greenford, was found guilty of Mr Isaacs’ murder in a trial at the Old Bailey and will be sentenced in May.

The family of the victim will never get Jason back but I hope the courts dole out a sentence that is fitting for the heinous crime.


My World:

Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it.

Ten weeks in my not-so-new job and still loving every minute of it. Something happened this week as a result of an inspection report which has made a slight difference to how someone will live and it made all the hours of hard work feel worthwhile.

Had a lovely weekend as my son Mark came home for Easter and had a lovely family day today around at my mum and dad’s house.

My Writing:

Truth & Retribution is now in the hands of my lovely editor, hoping she doesn’t hate me after reading it! I have started reading back through A Boy from the Streets to make a few minor changes and edit any mistakes that were previously missed. I have also decided to change the front and back matter and want to get it right in book 1 before moving on to book 2 and the final edits on books 3 & 4.
