I’m half way through the 30 Day Writing Challenge – woohoo! Start from the beginning here. Today you get to hear every itty-bitty bit of my day – lucky you!
Bullet-point your whole day.
I would like to apologise in advance for the banality of this challenge. I’m sure you have better things to do than hear every little thing about my day, but tough luck, I’m going to write about it anyway!
