#BeMoreWitWitWoo

When I got the first one it was going to be the only one.   I didn’t really have a desire to cover my body in ink, just a wish to remember two friends in some way.   To remind myself that life is for living and that tomorrow you could be on holiday and die in

The one about pillows

  You probably don’t know this about me but my perfect day would involve a very large bed.  White cotton bedding and a huge amount of pillows.   A pile of newspapers and copious amounts of tea.   This to me is pretty much the height of luxury.     So it is slightly baffling that I have
