Three years ago i bought a book in Tampa which is meant to be a great for creative like minds and for the past three years I have made it my New Years Resolution to complete it.

I never got round to writing many of them so what’s a better way then getting through them then writing a few as an article each week! Enjoy!

You get really bored, you work out what to do for a toilet, you find a way of having food and drink (luckily I have some as I have just gone shopping).

You make up games, stretch your legs, turn the car off, go for a walk, cry and get bored all over again.
