Linky Blog – Brave

Linking up with Fi from My Mummy Daze for Stories of Me. This weeks Topic – Brave.   When I was a little girl, about 10 or so I think, I remember writing a poem.

You see, my Mum has been sick as long as I can remember...

I have never had an eating disorder, never purged or vomited. Never even crossed mine or my parents mind – I just had a fast...

The Thing I’d Tell You has asked this question…..In a fantasy world, forget about spouses and loves, if you could fall in love with {or be best friends with, I don’t think it should all be about who you’d shag , so lets have some from both categories } a movie or tv character, name 5 you would choose.
