Blog 83 – 8.7.17. Where’s my breakfast?

Blog 82 – 5.7.17… Brave boy Troy…

Blog 80 – 17.6.17. Out of the ashes….

I know the smell of fire…a small but damaging one broke out at home when I was young. Now I’m imagining my lovely house as a charred, blackened, unrecognisable space…and several members of my family missing. How would that hole in my life be? Continue reading
