This Day is Ours

Today has been a stressful one so far. First off, I didn't sleep well and forgot I needed to wash my hair and got up too late so it's really greasy. I then realised I had a cold and felt crappy. Then I missed my train because the ticket man was so slow then the tube was overcrowded so I… Continue reading This Day is Ours

The grass is yellow on the other side

This week I've been thinking about relationships and how so many people wish for things they don't have or what others have. Perhaps thinking the grass is greener on the other side but is it really? To help me share my thoughts on the subject, I turn to Jane Austen who wrote my fave book Pride and… Continue reading The grass is yellow on the other side
