Day 7 – St Valentine Break

Dear Readers, I am taking 14 February as a break from my writing. I am going to see Heathers (movie) with my daughter as a way to celebrate the Day of Love (there is an irony somewhere) Thus, relax and enjoy the day and the night. No matter where you are and what you do….

Day 6 – 5 Pet Peeves

Dear Diary, I am becoming a constantly-complaining, ever disclosing, too open and perpetually writing lady. Haven’t you noticed? Today is DAY 6 of my writing challenge and it is all about Pet Peeves.

Colder than Snow Queen

Dear Diary, I absolutely had to share this with you.
