When I was a child, I found myself doing two things consistently: writing about dragons and going out looking for them. When I realised that finding a real dragon was going to be harder than I anticipated, I turned my attention to the other creatures of my fascination.

To regift or not to regift…

That is the question

To regift or not to regift…

What happens when Santa (or your nearest and dearest) decide to surprise you with something they thought you’d absolutely love and when you open it, the feeling of horror and or shock wants to break free, but instead, you manage to come out with “Oh WOW…. thank you so much! I always wanted one of those” as your eyebrows raise and your perfectly practiced Instagram smile appears on your face.
