MY EXPERIENCE OF THE DREADED ‘WRITER’S FEAR’

I FEAR many things in my life. Some of them you’ll probably share with me. But what if I told you I was afraid of writing. What on earth would you make of that?

DREAMING OF MY DREAM BATHROOM

OUR bathroom currently has an eighties vibe. It’s old fashioned, it’s pink (yes, really) and thankfully it’s at least functional. But besides the huge bath we have which is wonderful (the previous owner was a very tall man!) there’s not much else I can say to sing its praises, try as I might.

THE NEW ‘RULE’ WHICH IS CHANGING MY LIFE (CHUNK BY CHUNK)
