100 days of happiness

So, today is day 100 of this challenge. I’m finished! At first, I have to say, it felt really cringe to be posting pictures of my life, especially as I spend a lot of days just sitting at my desk and venturing no further than the gym or the shops.

Arthur Hall Hi Claire.
Thanks for 'friending' me. I write espionage novels and Sherlock Holmes pastiches, with the occasional foray into sci-fi and fantasy. Probably the genres which I explore are not so different from yours. I hope our paths cross often here, and on Twitter or Facebook if you go there.
Best wishes,
Arthur
