I don’t know for sure, but if I had to guess, I’d wager that their ancestors were nomads of some description, too – in my mind, exotic and a bit piratey, but with all their own teeth.

The power of female friendship | Grazia

SOMETIMES, THINGS GO WRONG. I SAY THIS FROM CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE. My life has run the gamut of spectacular wrongness over the decades; starting from age six when I tore my M&S knickers falling out of a tree in a packed pub garden, right the way through to sending a WhatsApp screenshot back to the same person a few months ago.
