Ten Things of Thankful #86

I wasn’t ready to write this, all of a sudden, because my brain had a short-but-violent meltdown of the ‘disordered thoughts’ type, and I couldn’t see beyond the rim of my own navel, for an embarrassingly long couple of hours. Friday evening was spent in a mire of misery and self-loathing and the only thankful…

Mundane Trivia of the Bloggy Sisterhood

I already hate that title! HOWEVER (hang on, you’re not meant to start sentences like that, are you? Because it’s improper.
