Approaching another birthday very quickly I think I’m resigned to the facts : 1. I may be a spinster ( such a weird… Read More Diary of a Crazy Future Old Lady
Let’s go back 30 years to ..1982. Had to count on my fingers for a moment. A strange number to decide to go back? Well not really because 30 is a round number, a milestone number in terms of age. which is not necessarily the discussion. I am not seriously going to… Read More Thirty Years Ago,
