Do You Have A Must-Sing-Along Song?

Whenever we’re driving together (it doesn’t matter if we’re on an ‘emergency’ chocolate slab run or, a four-hour road trip) our family rotates the song selection responsibility.

On The Edge Of Normality

I had an image of myself, gliding gracefully into Work Life. I’d start my first day with a cappuccino in hand, sunglasses on my head; the wind rustling my hair just enough to get that ‘movie moment’ likeness.
