Fun Days and Holidays

This post was originally written a week ago, so the first paragraph probably doesn’t make much sense now… Having told you all back in March that I’m blogging wrong, I then went on to not blog at all, which is probably as wrong as you can get if your aim is to actually blog.

The F-word

Yesterday I was high-fiving the blogosphere as I read @NomadMomDiary‘s post “Not all F words are created equal“.
