Five for Friday – Things I’ve learned so far!

Nope I haven’t left the country, fell down a well or been eaten by cats. I’m doing NaNoWriMo and am sooo behind I’ve taken to drinking more wine and walking round graveyards to prove to myself that things could be worse. The first week was fantastic, I was full of energy and enthusiasm and flewContinue reading “Five for Friday – Things I’ve learned so far!”

Place them on yourContinue reading “Why perspectives are like shoes.”

I don’t like Coffee!!!
