Chapter 7. Wandering What I Am Going To Do With My Life

April 28, 2017


Wandering what I am going to do with my life I realised it was time to really work out what it is that I love doing, not what I’m good at. If I could buy myself some time to figure this out, then I could spend my time doing more of what I think I […]

Why do you read my blog?

If you have so much as even read just half of one of my posts in the last 4 years, I would just love (!) to know why you still follow me …..other than that you just haven’t gotten around to un-following me yet….. 😉 I’m writing a book you see. I don’t screen what I […]
