Well that’s it people, as of midnight you can say goodbye to November and we all step in to the Countdown of The Year. There’s no need for me to remind you, you’re going to be bombarded with it on every single medium possible. Can you believe a school local to me forbid their primary […]
I met with a couple of blogging friends for lunch this week at a shopping centre central to us all and making the most of my time I turned up early to do a bit of Christmas shopping. Now I thought I was ahead of everyone else. As I parked the car I smiled to […]
