As good as a rest, they say …


Change! It’s not a thing that I’m particularly  good at. I tend to stick to something I’m comfortable with or something I like. I’m not one for trying out new things.

Caught … after all I have said!


The number of times I have warned people about the dangers of Internet shopping, I go and get caught myself.
