Do you ever get to the point where your to do list is just too long? I am sat here staring at the list I wrote at the beginning of the week. There isn’t many things ticked off and I am one of those people who writes a couple of things on the list that I have already done so I can tick them off straight away. I am a list maker, it’s how I function. I have lists on my phone, lists on the board in the kitchen, lists in my notepad and then I have lists of the… View Post

I’m not a regular viewer of Coronation Street at all but when I saw that they were having a baby loss story line I couldn’t help but watch.
