For me ASOS.com is a dangerous place on the Internet. I actually want everything and as each separate piece isn’t that expensive, I click away filling my basket with items eventually reaching the checkout and coming to the conclusion that it’s going to cost me some real money. Read more.
A very good friend of mine called. She had just received an email from her mother in law. The words were so harsh she had to sit down. It was a culmination of events in a situation that had been derailed for years. Read more.
