Don’t be SAD

Waking up this morning and seeing a lovely bit of sunshine has definitely got me off to a great start to the weekend. I got up at eight and took the dog for a walk – the first time I’ve been out of the house for two days and now I’m ¬†getting some writing done.…… Continue reading Don’t be SAD

Baby brother.

Today my little brother is twenty. I have two brothers (both younger) and today is Edward’s birthday.
