Share Your World – 24th October, 2017

This week’s offering of self from Cee’s Share your World Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? I confess I coasted through most of primary school (5-11yo), secondary school was a whole different scenario. The work was easy enough (mostly) but the politics and squabbling, the incessant bitchiness. In some ways, they were wonderful…
