Porridge is probably the best breakfast food

I really enjoy posting on this blog, but somehow, I’ve let it slipped away.

naked, in front of the mirror

When you stand completely naked in front of the mirror, what do you see? How do you see yourself?  When I am stood naked in front of the mirror, my first thoughts are: oh how does my face look today, is it spotty, and inflamed?
