31 days…

There are 31 days in January; 31 alcohol-free days. Not that I'm thinking about it much 😉 I've done Dry Jan before, but not for a few years. So here are my thoughts as it draws to its merry close.... Continue Reading →

My habit is to start a book and read for 15 mins in bed before I fall asleep. The downside being I never get any further than chapter one which I keep re reading because I can't remember what happened. I'd like this habit to change.
