Even as a child I wasn’t one for tracksuits and as early as three knew exactly what I wanted to wear! The photo below has captured a disgruntled little diva in red. The lady in red had wanted to wear a fabulous white creation which had been made to measure. Yes, even at three I had a sense of style all of my own and appreciated haute couture.

Sure without her I’d have no stories to tell and no blog to write :). And a huge thanks to all who visit the page, read, share and leave comments.

Since finishing the challenge I have taken up running, well I have begun the the couch to 5k challenge and am delighted with my progress. I […]

I am finally getting round to organising my study. I’m trying to be ruthless and throw away all the notes that I have clung on to from college. It’s working out well……ish!
