Turning into my Mother

Turning into my Mother

“I’m turning into my mother” I say in dismay, recognising her in the tone of my voice, my mannerisms, the size of my nose. Don’t get me wrong, I do love her. From the bottom of my heart to the tips of my toes, But seriously. If I’ve bought a new bag, put on a … Continue reading

My Nutty Valentine

Roses & Realisation

Roses & Realisation
