Away with the fairies

Have I ever told you that I believe in fairies? No? Not that I see them flying around, or that I expect to walk in on one taking a rest on my curtain pole. But the idea of fairies.

‘Fall in love with taking care of yourself: Mind, Body and Spirit’

What makes you feel good? Is it freshly painted nails? Fresh bedding? A large glass of your favourite wine? Or a combination of all three?
