A Lil’ Ray Of Sunshine

That devilish Norrie, who hides under her blankie, a lot, has nominated me to be grilled, so be warned, you could be so bored you fall asleep mid-sentence … #1 Do you believe in ghosts? I know what you’re thinking, no one in their right mind who studied science at Uni could possibly believe in ghosts, well, you’d be wrong. I do believe … eh, sort of. There was a ‘presence’ in our family home (no matter where we lived) that my Dad referred to ‘It’ as Fred—yes, the ghost was named. My mother claimed it was one of her great aunts.

So if you’re ready, let’s dive in … Where do you typically write your posts? Usually in the bedroom but, I must add, not while in the bed, or during rompy pompy, okay? I have a small corner of the room with a desk. How long does it generally take you to write a book review? Anywhere between an hour and a couple of days. When did you start your book blog?
