Go RED to KISS GOODBYE TO MS, the global fundraising campaign, supported by MS … Read More 💋 Kiss Goodbye to MS 2017 💋
“Following that, I hit writer’s block faster than you can say ‘ABC’. That writer’s block has reached the ‘XYZ’ stage, so I’m nearing a muse that sounds, tastes and smells like coffee.
Where I am funnily always full of ideas.
Away from notebooks and pens, I scrapped another item from my bucket list in September.”
