Devi the Diva - if in doubt wear red!

I was just thinking about how I need to get me lots of arms to get everthing done this year I need to do!!!

This mummy talk doesn't mean I'm thinking of having a getting a bun in the oven, Miss Correll, not planned anyway!!! Phew! Boy did I get carried away but how therapeutic it felt?! Sometimes its good to ramble - if in doubt wear red like Diva and be plain honest with yourself and others!

One of my New Year Resolutions was ...
