Why it’s better to be single at Christmas.

   Christmas Day will no doubt come with all your coupled-up friends announcing that Santa left them an engagement ring under the tree this year (imagine if Santa proposed to you?!). Facebook will literally be filled with sparkly diamonds. You’ll probably feel very single sitting in the onesie and cozy slippers Santa brought for you. But, there are many good things about being single at Christmas. Yep, I’ve thought of 9 reasons and decided to compile them in a list, just for you. I’m good like that.  1. It’s far cheaper.

What’s (not so) new about me…

Blog every day in November (BEDN)… I didn’t do so well at this when it ran in May. I think I managed to do two posts… I’m not promising I’ll do better this time round, especially considering that I am also attempting NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, where a participant is challenged to write an entire 50,000 word novel in the month of November) so it’s looking like I’ll be spending a lot of time on my laptop this month. So, today’s BEDN topic is ‘New About Yourself’. Which is interesting, cause I don’t think there is anything new about … Continue reading What’s (not so) new about me…
