Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge – Day 2

This Door is Alarmed was nominated by The Britchy One who writes one of the wittiest blogs I know. When I see she has posted, I set aside a slice of clock face with a cup of tea; I like to know I can fully enjoy her humorous and uniquely devious outlook on life. If you are not following her, you are missing out.


  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post one quote per day over three days.
  • Nominate 3 blogs per day to take part in the challenge.

Let us hope the top dog doesn’t have a bad day.


This is, as always, entirely voluntary and just for fun! If you choose to participate there is absolutely no time limit on completion, I just wanted the opportunity to let let you know how wonderful I think your sites are:

      1. The book is a mist read. She is one of my favourite authors. I am worried about watching the series in case it smears the beauty of the book!
