She’s a killer – extract

If there was one thing Cecilia hated more than life itself, it was a liar. She hated liars, all different kinds of liars. Twisting truths, hurting others to feed their own egos just the thought, disgusted Cecilia to her core.

28th October 2017 was a night that she’d never forget. The cold autumn breeze rushing through her long curly hair, leaves scattered on the pavements. This was her favourite time of year. The only time when being spooky was universally okay. There was just something about carving pumpkins and drinking her latte with an extra dash of cinnamon, eating hot apple pies with a scoop of ice cream while watching the days slowly get shorter. This was the time of year Cecilia believed all things were possible.

Magical. That day was magical. They say love finds you when you least expect it, it surprises you. Cecilia can confirm that is very true. It was a chance encounter two blocks away from her favourite coffee shop. He wasn’t paying too much attention to his surroundings while he seemed to be having an argument on his phone. She was too occupied by the music playing through her headphones, eyes closed bobbing her head to the rhythm without a care in the world. In a fraction of a second, these two strangers collide.

Collided in a way that now their fates were intertwined. It was reckless yet so perfect, so rushed but still so slow. They were missing pieces to each other’s souls. Jamie was the answer to all of Cecilia’s prayers, he was perfection. He bought her flowers and showered her in gifts. He made time for her, he took her out and sometimes they just stayed in. He knew all her secrets she had let him in. He would make her laugh so hard that her jaw hurt from smiling. He was her rock when the waters were rough, her light in darkness he kept her warm through it all.

632 days of perfection. On day 633 Cecilia made her way to his house she was going to surprise him, no need to call ahead. A bag full of groceries for their date night meal she walked up the steps. She unlocked the door and headed straight to the kitchen. She was excited and knew that Jamie won’t be home for another hour. She sets everything down and starts to prep the vegetables and meat. 45 minutes later she is all done; he’ll be back soon so now it’s time to freshen up.

She heads to the stairs and stops to see something unusual, a trail of clothing just laying on the floor. Confused and startled she grabs a knife from the kitchen. Cecilia doesn’t take risks when it comes to her life or the lives of her loved one. She slowly makes her way up the stairs and paces herself at the landing. She scans the area to distinguish any anomalies. The door, Jamie’s door is ajar while the rest are wide open. She takes a few deep breaths in to calm her heart she tiptoes to his room.

Red, a burning fire filled with rage, full of compulsion. She lost all control, she was blinded that through all the commotion the begging, the cries not once did she stop. Blood so much blood, the sheets were filled with blood. Jamie and his lover lay there still covered in sin, motionless, horror painted all over their faces. She walked back to the kitchen and washed the knife clean. She sat down at the table and poured herself some food. Cecilia looked over to the empty plate by her side and laughed to herself. He would be enjoying this delicious dinner too if he hadn’t lied.

That one night (male pov)

Watching clouds until the sky is littered in stars, her hand in mine fingers interlocked, our hearts beating in sync. I knew we were thinking the same – wishing that this summer could last forever. That when the sunrises we wouldn’t have to say goodbye.

Erisah Adams was a breath of fresh air that you didn’t know you needed. Chaotic in all the right ways everything that I am not. Her spirit so free and intoxicating, she could reel you in with just one look. She is magical. How could one not be enamoured by her beauty?

I turned to face her, drinking in every ounce of her perfection. Her hand caressing mine as she speaks about her love of the night sky. How this is exactly where she would want to spend her forever. With me, watching stars on the sandy shores. Our bodies close but not close enough. I think…no I know this is love.

Six weeks that is all it took for her to somehow weasel her way into my heart and now I wasn’t sure I could let go. How was I supposed to go back to normal when all I craved was her. How was I supposed to function when my mind was only on her. Even in her presence, I needed to know her more. To memorise the way her eyes light up when she talks and boy can she talk so passionately just about anything it’s like she cares a little too much, she feels a little too much. How she laughs at the silliest of things, the sound warms my heart. I need to feel her touch so it is engraved into my skin. Her lips on mine so soft, so sweet her taste lingers in my mouth. She is my favourite flavour.

I knew I was in for an adventure when I packed my bag that’s exactly what I had hoped for but a whirlwind romance never could I have imagined not even in my wildest dreams.

2am thoughts

Nights like these are reckless. Nights like these are not for the faint-hearted. They are tainted in the blood of your demons. The silence is eerie and the darkness is consuming. Your heart rate is racing, faster, faster, faster. You’re no longer tossing and turning trying to find comfort in your bed. The place where you lay to find peace, to find solace, your safe haven. Anywhere, you’d rather be anywhere but there.

You jolt out of bed scrambling in the darkness to find your phone. The very thing you that you spend each waking moment with, clutching to it as though it is your lifeline. The very thing you lock away after 11 pm so that you actually close your eyes instead of mindlessly scrolling torturing your fickle soul into the wee hours of the night.

Finally, you look down at the screen to see it’s 2 am. Only 2 am on a Sunday night. You walk towards your wardrobe and pull out the first pair of joggers you can find, grab a jacket and put on some shoes. You most likely look like you dressed yourself in the dark but that is exactly what you’ve done.

Slowly you tiptoe down your stairs carefully making sure the old wood doesn’t creak loud enough to wake the others. The softer your step funnily enough the louder the creak. You see the door and you’re out. Out in the fresh air, out in the open. The dimly lit street so quiet, so serene almost suddenly you feel at peace and you know exactly where you need to be.

Running, you’re running as fast as your legs can carry. The cold air grazing your skin. The cooling sensation making you feel more alive than you have in a very long time. You stop for a moment to catch your breath, you close your eyes – inhale… exhale… inhale… exhale… A few more steps that’s all it will take and you’re finally there.

Your home away from home, shining under the moonlight.

“Can you see me?”

You know that feeling, that delirious feeling of being in and out of consciousness. Watching as the world passes you by yet you’re frozen in a state of denial. A blur, a tangent feeling, circles, running; your mind buzzing. That is how I function most days.

I have places to be, people to meet. I pick up the pace and start to walk faster, faster my feet move a little faster

*ring ring*

I quickly check my phone. It’s Matteo again. I contemplate whether I should answer. I’m only a few moments away.

“Hello, I’m just around the corner. I won’t be long”

Nothing. I hear nothing.


I can’t even hear him breathing.

“Matteo! If this is some kind of joke I’m going to kill you”

Still nothing.

“Fine, have it your way I can see you now anyway I’ll be there in a second.”

I run up to the boy with bright brown eyes, he’s smiling in the way your whole body reacts to joy. Nose crinkled, eyes barely open, dimple kinda smile – he keeps me sane, my Matteo. I’m going to marry him one day. I’ll be the perfect wife, have a few kids, fall in love with how imperfectly perfect we are for each other. This is the man I want till my dying breath.

Arms open I go to embrace my love. I feel his body next to mine – I feel at home so close to his chest hearing his heartbeat it’s my favourite sound. But why isn’t he holding me, why aren’t his arms around my waist pulling me closer, why is he standing still? I look up at my love. He isn’t smiling anymore. His brows furrowed in confusion.

“Baby, what’s wrong?” I’m starting to worry now too.

He doesn’t answer me, it’s like he doesn’t’ see me like I’m not there at all.

“Matteo, baby why aren’t you answering me? Did I do something wrong?”

He’s staring right at me, worry written all over his face. His eyes darkening, his lips pursing the way he does when he’s mad. I move back a little and he pulls out his phone.

He’s dialling a number, his eyes wondering. Why is he acting like this, so strange and out of character?

My phone starts to ring.

*ring ring*

Before I can say anything. He walks right through me.

My So-Called Bollywood Life By Nisha Sharma – Review

“Winnie Mehta was never really convinced that Raj was her soul mate, but their love was written in the stars. Literally, a pandit predicted Winnie would find the love of her life before her eighteenth birthday, and Raj meets all the qualifications. Which is why Winnie is shocked when she returns from her summer at film camp to find her boyfriend of three years hooking up with Jenny Dickens. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted.

Then there’s Dev, a fellow film geek and one of the few people Winnie can count on. Dev is smart and charming, and he challenges Winnie to look beyond her horoscope and find someone she’d pick for herself. But does falling for Dev mean giving up on her prophecy and her chance to live happily ever after? To find her perfect ending, Winnie will need a little bit of help from fate, family, and of course, a Bollywood movie star.”

Before we get into my review lets just talk about some things. It might sound a little crazy to everyone but never have I ever read a YA book by a South Asian woman before. As a Pakistani woman that baffles me, like how is that possible? I don’t think I’ve even ever come across such a thing until I saw My So-Called Bollywood Life on the WHSmith website, therefore, I automatically had to buy it. Maybe this is a, me problem, where I just haven’t been looking hard enough for authors who have a similar background and culture to myself but I know for a fact that there is a lack of diversity in the book world and we definitely need more books like this one and the ones that already exist we need to do a much better job of making them visible and more easily available and accessible.

Nisha Sharma’s debut YA novel My So-Called Bollywood Life is what I would class as a teenage rom-com starring an Indian American teenage girl Winne Mehta. She is a film enthusiast who dreams of getting her Bollywood style love story. Being from an Indian family there are certain religious and cultural tradition that her family follows. They believe in astrology and that birth charts can predict your future so it is very interesting to see how out Winne

navigates with coming to terms with fate/destiny.

I love the family dynamics in this book it’s the perfect balance of what a loving family should look like. Winnie’s grandma might actually be my favourite character. I think South Asian grandmas are just really funny in general with their sassiness and those one-liners that they pull out of nowhere. I love that she speak in Punjabi throughout it makes it more delightful and adds to the charm of the book. I love Winnie’s relationship with her dad it is so wholesome and it is so cute that she gets her love of Bollywood films from him.

The layout of this book is something I really enjoyed. Each chapter starts with a mini-review of a classic Bollywood movie by Winne herself and it somewhat sets the tone for each of the chapters which I believe is very cleverly done by Nisha Sharma. As someone who wasn’t brought up on Bollywood and hasn’t actually ever seen a single Bollywood movie in their life, I was able to follow with ease and understand all the references which I really appreciate. So even as an outsider to the culture you can very easily develop an understanding of who Winne is and how she was brought up.

I really liked the fact that most of the main characters besides one maybe two are Indian. Both Winne’s love interests are Indian. I am not going to lie I think that is what excited me the most about this book. You read stories and watch tv shows about girls of different cultures in America and the UK who somehow fall in love with a white guy. Like there’s nothing wrong with that, you do you boo but this is not a hugely common thing. so it’s good to see some accurate representation that is relatable.

I’ll have to give My So-Called Bollywood Life a score of 3.5/5. I have nothing against this book it’s super cute, funny and so damn relatable! But I must say at one point I put the book down and didn’t really pick it up and finish until two months later. I would still recommend giving Winnie’s story a read because there are so many girls out there who haven’t yet seen themselves visibly represented in literature before and this book is a step forward in the right direction.

Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde Palette – Review & Swatches

Hi everyone!!! I’m back with another palette review and as you can tell from the title of this post it’s the Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde palette. Not too long ago Huda Beauty had a massive sale on their website and I thought it was the best time for me to spend tons of money that I don’t have. This palette was included in the sale but I just could not resist.

This is the only big 18 shade palette that I own from Huda just because none of the others ever really appealed to me but I was torn between getting this one and the New Nudes just because it’s so pretty and would perfect for everyday looks but I fell in love with the colour story and packaging on this palette it is absolutely stunning as you can see below.

Taken in Direct Sunlight to show off the reflective nature of the palette

The Mercury Retrograde palette retails for £58/$67 you can purchase this palette from retailers such as Boots, Cult Beauty, Selfridges and many more. I purchased directly of the Huda Beauty website and I did place quiet a big order on a lot of sale items so it worked out to be a lot cheaper for me and surprisingly I did not have to pay customs or a delivery fee.

This is such a dreamy palette it has mermaid and fairy vibes written all over it! It is a girly palette and my heart screams with joy every time I look at it. There are so many different types of purples and I am obsessed with the stunning aqua shade Haze like I would die for Haze. I little dramatic I know but just look at it and the rest of the palette! I’m a sucker for anything cosmic and mystical but I’ve really enjoyed using the palette even incorporating it into my daily makeup routine.

Taken in Direct Sunlight

There are 18 shades all together but if we break it down there 9 mattes, 6 metallics, 1 glitter powder and 2 sheer multi-reflective shadows.

Cosmic – a bright, light-medium pink with a metallic sheen
Utopia – a medium coral with a matte finish
Ultraviolet – a light-medium purple with a sparkling, metallic finish
Nebula – a medium-dark lavender with flecks of silver, gold, and lavender glitter
Mercury – a blackened teal base with flecks of blue-teal shimmer and sparkle.
Haze –  a medium aqua with a matte finish
Off Balance – a warm medium pink with a matte finish
Galaxy – a very warm light-medium pink with a metallic sheen
Libra – a medium bright lavender with a matte finish
Crash – a soft, tea pink with a matte finish
Momentum – a light peachy beige with a matte finish
Supermoon – a pale white with iridescent flecks of sparkle
Vortex – a muted, cool toned deep purple with a matte finish
Hot Mess – a medium reddish-berry with a matte finish
Supernova – a reddish-copper base with flecks of pink sparkle
Karma – a warm muted, medium-dark coral with a matte finish
Gold Glitch – a bright, light-medium copper with flecks of gold and pink sparkle
Frazzled – a warm medium copper with flashes of green and gold sparkle

Taken in Direct Sunlight

Let’s talk about pigmentation and how well the shadows perform. The mattes are so buttery and so pigmented a little goes a long way with them. I don’t really have any trouble to fall out with these mattes they are very vibrant and look so good on the skin. That being said Vortex is not exactly on par with the other shades. It’s a lot more chalky and doesn’t blend as nicely or layer as well as the others you really have to go to work to achieve a flawless blend which is annoying because all the other shades so creamy!!!

Now the metallic shades are super pretty and have such a gorgeous sheen to them. My only complaint is about Galaxy, once it’s on the skin it feel a little bit more powdery then creamy. The whole wet look that you get with a shimmer/metallic shade it doesn’t really exist with this shade and it’s a shame because the colour is so lovely. The on glitter powder in the palette – Nebula is very pretty but trust me you want to you use your finger to apply because you aren’t going to get anything with a brush so there is no point. You could always try the brushes created my Huda Beauty for her palettes but I’m sit to my fingers for now.

The same can be said for the 2 sheer multi-reflective shades Golden Glitch and Supermoon. They weren’t my favourite to work with but using a wet brush did the trick for me. You can see in the swatches don’t do themselves any justice. You can’t even tell that they are the multi-reflective shades. They are such stunning shades in the pan and when used wet but they should be so much easier to work with. Now with all that being said all the shadows are very long lasting and don’t seem to crease either so that’s a brownie point.

These are the three looks that I created using the palette they are all pretty simple especially look number one. This palette is so mystical but it also has some very basic shades that you can use for an everyday look. I love versatility in palettes and this one is honestly one of my favourite colour stories. If you are a purple lover like myself but you want something with a little bit of a twist this could be the palette for you.

Overall I’d rate the Mercury Retrograde Palette 7/10 I really like it! Some of the shades may be a little hit and miss like Vortex and some of others but for me it doesn’t take away from how pretty and whimsical this palette is. I know that is pricey palette but there are 18 shades so it works out to be about £3.20 a shadow so if you can justify it and you love all the colours then why not treat yourself. If that’s not the case and you only like one or two shade look for a dupe, all palettes have dupes trust me and it will be work out more cost effective.

I’m really enjoying doing this three looks per palette thing that I’m doing. I can’t wait to share the next palette with you I’m torn between the Jackie Aina and the Amrezy ABH Palettes so I guess it will be a surprise. I would love to hear your thoughts and what your favourite shade in this palette is? Let me know which look you liked the most!

Dose Of Colors x Desi & Katy Friendcation Palette – Review & Swatches

The Dose of Colors Friendcation Palette is a collaboration with two of my fave YouTubers Desi Perkins and Katy. This is their second collab with the brand – they released an eyeshadow palette, 3 highlighters, 2 lip glosses, 2 lipsticks and 4 velvet mattes. I purchased 2 velvets mattes and 1 of the lip glosses as well. I wanted to get a highlighter-but the one I wanted was never in stock so that didn’t happen.

I’ve had this palette for a while now and I’ve used it several times on a few clients but never really got around to playing with it myself. Lockdown has been a great way for me to get back into being some what creative or at least trying to be. It has been a while since I took product and swatch pictures and as you can see I am totally off my game. Bear with me and I promise I’ll get back into the swing of it.

Taken in direct sunlight

The palette is limited edition but a year later it is still available on the Dose of Colors website as well as Beauty Bay. The retail price the last I checked which was about five minutes is £49 or $55. Bear in mind if you live in the UK your best option is to purchase off Beauty Bay that way you won’t have to pay customs and duty fees.

So let’s get into the fun part the 10 beautiful shades! The palette includes 5 mattes and 5 glitter shades. I would say the mattes are nice basic warm-toned neutrals. You can create anything from a minimal natural look to a full-blown smokey eye with them. The glitters are pretty jewel tones that I find suit all skin tones, they are just so pretty I can’t get enough!

Shades :
Basic – a matte nude pink
Cheens – a matte deep brown
Necessary – a matte camel tan
Dirty Money – a glitter olive green with a gold shift
A Moment – a glitter navy blue with purple shift
Try Me – a glitter rusty red
Just a Kiss – a glitter champagne
Girl Bye – a matte burgundy shade
Churro – a matte chocolate brown
Game Over – a glitter black with silver

Taken in Direct Sunlight

As you can see the palette is super pigmented especially the matte shades! They do not swatch or apply patchy which is a dream. They are just creamy and they blend so easily. The glitter shades are great, you can apply them with a flat synthetic eyeshadow brush however I find that this is not the best option for me. I prefer to use my fingers this allows me to achieve maximum glitter potential – but this can get a little messy because of fall out. You can also wet the flat top brush for a more dimensional look using the glitter shades this is the safest option plus they sparkle a bit more. These shadows are extremely long-lasting to the point my eyes where watering heavily and usually that means my eye makeup will get messy but let me tell you these shadows did not budge. You could not even tell my eyes had a bit of a leaking incident!!

These are the three looks I created using the Friendcation palette. They are very basic and use all the shades in the palette. I just wanted to show the main easy to achieve options. I know that a cranberry eye look was an obvious one that I didn’t go for but if you have followed me from day one you’ll know I’m obsessed with berry tones so I didn’t want to bombard you another berry-toned look. What I really love about this palette is that there are so many combinations and pretty looks that you can create, you by no means have to stick to the obvious! It’s makeup and honestly, there are no rule when you are creating art!

Overall I’d give this palette an 8/10 I really love it! It’s one of those palettes you pull out on a special occasion because you want to look extra dolled up and pretty and it delivers every single time. It’s a little bit on the pricey side but if you are a fan of Desi and Katy you’ll want to support their collaboration and that’s great but if you can’t splurge out you very easily find dupes for nearly all the shades.

So that wraps up today’s post I would love to hear your thoughts and what your favourite shade in this palette is? Let me know which look you liked the most! If you would like full details for each of the looks just click on my Instagram and it’s all in the caption!

Comic Book Grunge

Lockdown life has really got me doing things I’ve been putting of doing for years now!

I was recently scrolling through TikTok like you do and came across so many videos of people doing these cool spotlight photoshoots and they looked like so much fun so I thought I’d give it a go too!

So you’ll need a model in this case I used my brother, a loo roll or any type of cylinder roll you can find around the house and a torch light – you can just use your phone. If you want to take self portraits make sure you have a tripod or something to prop your phone up. These types of pictures are best shot in the dark – so play around a little until you figure out what works best for you.

I obviously had to put my own little spin on it by adding a really cool background made out of super old marvel comics (my mum has been trying to get me to rid of of them for ages but I knew holding on to them would come in handy) We just ripped the pages out and taped them to the wall. But you don’t really need to do that I just wanted to go for a super grungy look and I even styled my brother in line with my vision.

I really like how these turned out especially because I took them blind (yes I wasn’t wearing my glasses) in the dark. I edited these all on my phone using VSCO and SnapSeed. My brother who has his own photography page on Instagram – By Bilaal (which you all should follow because he takes amazing pictures!!) edited them a little differently to the way I did using Photoshop and Lightroom.

If you do try this out I’d love to see what you guys come up with! Tag me on Instagram @geminifatale or just leave a comment down below!

Five Books I Fell In Love with – YA Edition

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.

I am a sucker for a good book that makes you feel, all the emotions and this books did just that. The characters are so real and so raw it just makes everything about this book so much more endearing. Eleanor and Park’s struggles and insecurities are so relatable that it gives them that extra human factor. You could say that there is nothing extra special about these characters, everyone is so flawed but that is what makes them and this story so amazing. It just feels real like this is actually somebody’s story to tell. This book made me feel like I wanted to be a teenager and fall in love for the very first time all over again that is how much I was in my feels.
Score – 4/5

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder by Holly Jackson
The people you love weren’t algebra: to be calculated, subtracted, or held at arm’s length across a decimal point.

I love a good murder/mystery, these are the kind of books that I live for!! Let me just tell this that when I purchased this book I just picked it up because the title was obviously calling out to me. In my head I painted this picture that this story was going to be about a girl who had finally cracked and killed a couple of people and had gotten away with it because why not? (maybe this is a book I need to write because clearly I have a thing for serial killers) Holly Jackson blew my mind – this is such a fast paced easy read with an exhilarating plot. It is a rollercoaster of emotions and I was living for it! The layout of the book is pretty awesome and out of the box. This book has very special place in my heart as someone who has a degree in journlaism because Pippa is a bad b and I want to be her.
Score – 5/5

Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds
“Maybe it’s not how something ends that matters. Maybe it’s about having something good, even for a little while.”

I know everyone says not to judge a book by it’s cover but I’m totally cover girl. If you look pretty or catch my eye I will be intrigued and most likely buy you. That is how I ended up with this beauty! I spent my whole birthday reading Opposite of Always and I have no regerts, none at all. This book breaks my heart but it also makes me so happy. There’s a little bit of everything in the story, love, friendship a lot personal growth and there is time travel! What more can you ask for? I’m not really one for time loops just because they tend to get tedious and they’ve been done so many times that they get predictable. I also get bored easily but I really enjoyed this book. It was hilarious – found myself laughing more often than thought I would. The story is so heartfelt and emotional in a good way but my heart was going through it reading this. Also one other thing I wanted to just big up the author for is how diverse all the characters in the book are. We love to see it! I look forward to reading more of his work in the near future because this is a beautiful debut!
Score 4.5/5

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
“People like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice. I think we all wait for that one time though, that one time when it ends right.”

If you haven’t already read this book or seen the movie I would just like to ask you where you’ve been for the past two years? Like go read it now!! This is such an important book with an even more important message. Angie Thomas did this, she created a book that resonates with so many people in one way or another. She approaches and tackles social, political & racial issues, real issues through fiction. This book is so layered and sadly so real, it broke my heart because there is someone out their who has lived parts of this or will live part of this and that makes me sick to even think about it. Education and awareness is so important and this book is just honest and thought provoking. I will forever recommend this book to everyone, teenagers and adults alike get yourself a copy!
(I’m not going to get all political in this post because I could go on forever but educate yourselves!!)
Score – 5/5

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
“Uncertainty isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes it can even be filled with extraordinary potential.”

Look at all those stars on the cover – you know where I am going with this don’t you! The stars, the moon anything related to the beauty of the night sky will forever have a hold on my heart! This book is a true coming of age story with a heck of a lot of diversity and inclusion. I love it!!! Starry Eyes is just a bundle of crazy but the awesome kind. I love that the main characters aren’t conventional types that always tend to have a voice in most books. They are unique and quirky and so is everyone around them. I went through this book fairly quickly it’s just so fun and cute it kind of made me miss being so young and getting up to stupid shizz. A perfect summer read if you ask me.
Score – 4/5

Everyone Looks Pretty in Pink!

Let me just start this of my saying how much I have missed putting on makeup!! Last night around 10.30pm I decided I was going to look pretty and beat my face and after month of not wearing makeup at all I was surprised at how it all turned out. Yes we all know how much I love pink eyeshadows the majority of the palettes I own are in the pink and purple family. I can’t help it, I just feel like pink makeup looks good on everyone because there are so many variations of the shade. I love it!!

I’m not going to lie I did get a little carried away and this is not the look I had envisioned when I started to apply my makeup but hey ho I think it looks pretty good and I am chuffed with the outcome.
