Out with the old, on with the new…


In keeping with the ‘think-positive-Spring-is-coming-whatever-you-do-SMILE’ mood I have decided to adopt, this book is particularly fresh, clean and bright. Actually, I’ve just noticed it matches my blog theme beautifully.

Actually, my heart sinks at the thought of it. Maybe it’s just too soon. I shall wait a while longer, maybe when the nights get lighter. All I seem to want to do these days is batten down the hatches, cuddle up warm and sleep! Internet dating is exhausting and you have to go through an awful lot of empty oysters before you find a pearl…
