I wrote the entries over about a month. I hadn't written a short story before so I took… Continue reading Achievements and Goals
I went to a launch event this week for a fab idea called parent pause. A local event with the idea of getting parents to share and be a positive community.

Random question I know, but this year my goal is to give it a go so who knows.
