In The Dark Of The Night

Besides being such an ardent advertiser, she was a big fan of hot showers herself. She bathed under …

The question asked was ‘What colour defines you’.  I took the quiz and the answer was ‘Red’ which happens to be my favourite colour.  But the question, ‘What colour defines you’ stayed in my mind, and inspired a blog post 🙂 Can one colour define you?Does one colour …

Twin Book Reviews – The Last Queen of India AND Nefertiti

Book Reviews: The Last Queen of India AND Nefertiti Historical fiction is not a genre that would interest me. Or so I thought, till a friend introduced me to Michelle Moran’s books. I was reluctant to start reading the first book but when I did start I couldn’t put it down! The reason I am …

Curlies

‘Rex said I was fat!’ exclaimed Alice, ‘…am I fat, Jojo?’ she implored her sister ‘Yes you are.’ replied Jojo, as she flexed her limbs ‘And you’re mean!’ exclaimed Alice, again.

‘You know, Ray, I hated your mother. I thought she was pure evil. There, I finally said it!’ exhaled Rita. ‘Surprised, huh?
