I loved you, even for just a short while

You’d have your dads brown eyes and his olive skin, but I would also be amazed at how much you look like your blue eyed big sister. Those little fingers that I saw on your ultrasound would be wrapped tight around my finger and...

Should staff be made to cover up their tattoos?

I don’t think we can quite say ‘Gone are the days when customer service staff are made to cover up their tattoos’, but we are certainly moving towards it not being such an issue.

Why is it so hard to say I am pretty?
