Only a short post with two points:
1) Never smile at yourself in the mirror - the wrinkles are downright scary!
2) As a freelance writer, never NEVER rely on being paid on a given date. I made this mistake and am now having to cobble together plan B. Not really anyone's fault, just the way it works - or doesn't! Not ideal the week before Christmas though....
OK, grumbling over...... on to more positive thoughts tomorrow!
