Dear Diary One of my friends recently purchased her first house so the last week or two have been very hectic for her with moving out of and cleaning the old place, and preparing and moving into the new one. I volunteered to go round and help her unpack on Sunday so I grabbed...
Dear Diary It looks like it’s that time of year when I’m supposed to be all excited about Christmas and such. A couple of my neighbours have strings and string of lights pinned up outside and last night of Facebook I saw some pictures of my next door neighbour’s beautiful...
