Hannah swung her tired feet from the car, shut the icy door and walked briskly to the front door of the house. Before she’d even turned the handle, she could hear the chaos ensuing. Bracing herself, she quietly slipped inside hoping not to be noticed until she could work out which room to avoid.
I tried. I really did. But then my brain started shooting off emails to the rest of my body and before I knew it, my stomach was replying to the morning instructions with growls. Twenty minutes passed and I had fully constructed this post in my mind. Bugger. I'm fully awake now. Sigh.
Okay, so it's confession time. I have had a case of the dreaded procrastination bug for the past three weeks. Yep. There has been absolutely no reason for why I have not posted this next scene, other than sheer procrastination which probably equals a touch of the fear of failure 😛 But never fear - … Continue reading Reconciled – Chapter 1 Reminiscing
Just a quick post today as I am rushing about like a headless chook. A funny thing happened about half an hour ago and I just wanted to share it with you.

To really feel like I could actually do this whole capsule wardrobe concept (Miriam-esque, of course), I made 24 outfit combinations out of just 12 of these items.
