The Swimming Pool incident

This week I’ve been feeling absolutely rubbish, especially today. I feel like a little mouse and depression is a cat that’s had me in her teeth today, after chasing me all week. (Image – Pixabay). All week, if you’d asked me what mood I was in, I would’ve said I was fine, or just a…

More than Average Joe

I went clubbing recently, with my new Gal Pals, and I met a nice guy on the dance floor. These are the girls I met on a Facebook group for girls who like the same music as me. One is a teacher from France who seems vivacious and slightly crazy, and the other is a…

How low can I go?

This week I met a very young man indeed. I was on holiday with a big group of people – some I knew, some I didn’t. We were in the french Alps. There were 12 of us and the purpose of the holiday was mountain-biking, although I didn’t touch a bike for the whole trip.…

Erectioneering
