After she stuffed a muffin in my hand, I took a small bite. It tasted decent but it wasn't in the same universe as the muffin I ate yesterday.

Day Zero: Seven O'clock

I woke with a massive headache. And when I say massive, I mean my first thought when I opened my eyes was, 'Oh, fuck this day.' Yet, I did open my eyes as my phone alarm insisted on beeping repeatedly. Grabbing my phone off my nightstand, I slid my fingers across the screen and laid back into my pillows.

  6. At first I thought this was going to be non fiction. Not sure if this is in context with your teaser, but I do notice food tastes different according to my mood.
    Have a fabulous weekend, Freda!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.
