Friday Five- Five superstitions I completely believe

Happy Friday 13th!

Not my favourite day, I must admit, being the superstitious old fool that I am. So far, touch wood, I've managed to avoid calamity (although I do feel as if I've now jinxed myself- there's still a few hours of this terrible day left). That's in spite of seeing magpies, a black cat and passing someone on the stairs! Maybe it's the special "confusing demons" charm I taught to a colleague today...

I follow so many, and have done for so long, that I barely notice them now. It was interesting, when writing Superstition, to actually examine objectively the bizarre rituals I believe keep me safe and lucky. I did exaggerate some for Laura's character, but I also left quite a few more out completely, as they were just too weird!

Anyway, on the most superstition-riddled day, what else can I write about for my Friday Five than the five superstitions I follow most closely and would never dare break? Welcome to my strange little world...

Friday Five: Five things I am loving this week

Happy Friday, everyone!

As you know, I'm quite a cheerful person most of the time, and I credit that to a conscious effort to find reasons to be cheerful.

It's not always easy; there are a multitude of reasons to be miserable at this time of year: summer is almost over, the nights are drawing in, the pressure to begin Christmas shopping has already started, blah blah blah... so here are five reasons I am cheerful this week- five things I am LOVING!
