Melodie Manners

Top Quote: On it like a rat on a biscuit.

Would Get Out of Bed For: A coma inducing, rich, hot chocolate from Thorntons…

Dirty Secret: Acrobatic aspirations – cannot touch my toes… not even close & an irrational (only according to others, I feel credibly justified) fear of mayonnaise.

Hot Under the Collar: Mayonnaise on my plate, on the table, on the table next to me.

Tele-comms, socks bunched up so they won't wash properly, other drivers... the list goes on!

Quintessentially Cornish: Hair always bedhead chic due to gorgeous sea air, bedhead not always so chic…

Writers Block: Blogging, copywriting and generally procrastinating about writing.
