I’m not plus sized. I fall within the “standard” sizes on the high street, and even when I don’t it’s usually my boobs that don’t fit.

Why I like to write alone

A few months ago I was chatting to a fellow blogger, who suggested we “hang out and blog together”. They thought it might be motivating to have a real life blogging buddy; not someone who could encourage from afar with the occasional tweet of “you can do it babes!” and remind us to post at […]
