asked the tween if she would give up cheese and join me in Vegauary. You probably can guess her answer from the photo!
2018 has been, like 2017, mostly pants with patches of ok. I kind of feel like adult life seems to be about managing the crap that’s thrown at you whilst pretending you are enjoying it all, and occasionally getting a bit of respite! Today has been all levels of pants. This blog was down, again, […]
