It is more likely to happen when I have to pen an article but it strikes, I sit back in my chair, eat some gummy sweets (usually an entire bag) and focus on another project. My mind usually clears itself then.(less)

She stared at a few of the celebrity photos and declared she would love to swap lives with Kim Kardashian. That led to a debate about who we would swap with if we actually could and if it were genuinely possible to exchange lives, would we really want to swap.
I'll be answering more questions starting from April 1st - 22nd so please ask away.(less)

L Dear Carol,
I firstly would like to thank you for being my friend here on Goodreads, which is an honor. I am so privaliged to have had the oportunity of reading your book 'Mini skirts and Laughter lines' which was apsolutely brilliant, and i do hope that my review helps in promoting your work. Thank you also for your lovely message and for being so kind as to offer to send me your other novel 'Surfing in stilletoes' which is very generous of you & i would love to review as well. I felt able to really connect with your story as i too am fairly new to the world of the internet, having now acustomed myself to sites like Goodreads, Real Readers, publishers and book blogs- which many i now follow.
Thank you once again and i look forward to many pleasant hours reading your work and discussing books with you.
