This morning I’ve been out with a couple of firm friends, who only met each other for the first time this today… Initially they were quite wary – but in no time at all after some introductions they were getting on famously. Probably bonded by their mutual love of bird watching Boris and Freckles seem … More Introducing friends
Well I think that yesterday’s bad mood has (mostly) dissipated. It’s probably blended into the background because today is my weekly weigh in – and also a Slimming World free food tasting day (it’s part of #freefoodfebruary if you’re a Twitterer).
