When Good Enough, is Great!

So, for those of you have been following my posts you will already know that he Duchess of Cambridge is my BFF and I won’t have a word said against her.  However, as news filters out into the press from well-meaning friends – not me, I hastened to add – about how ‘perfect’ her birth was, it occurred to me, how glad I am, that I don’t have to sit on such a very high pedestal every, single day. I mean don’t get me wrong, I get it, Kate is perfect.  She’s had the perfect birth, she’s got...

Kylie Platt, The Street and the Baby

Why the Duchess of Cambridge is now my BFF?
