Day 9 – I’m Not Clumsy, I’m Accident-Prone!

Day 7 – The Great Sock Discovery

Day 2 – Dad’s Just Signed Me Up To Do A 10k Run … Must Start Looking For My Trainers

Facebook Free, Day 2: At lunch time I’d had absolutely no Facebook cravings and was feeling quite proud of myself, by 2pm I’d had eight missed calls and four texts from my best friend, urgently requesting me to call back....

Day 1 – Just Bought Myself Two Huge Bags of Mini Eggs Because I Wasn’t Stupid Enough To Give Up Chocolate For Lent. Just Facebook.

Facebook Free, Day 1: Over the years I have literally become addicted to Facebook. I’ve rekindled past friendships, formed relationships and been involved in hell raising arguments, through the aid of Facebook (who hasn’t?). I’ve also shared photographs, organised events,...
