I've named my Gremlin!

I've named my Gremlin!

After a year of running my Gremlin has not given up and gone away. Because I've been feeling under par recently, I've been particularly aware of that insidious negativity...

Anyway, I know some of you have named your Gremlins so I've decided to join in. It turns out I'm the new Mrs DeWinter to Mrs Danvers the Gremlin.

Mrs Danvers is snide and mean but I will rise above her poisonous remarks and remember that Mr DeWinter (i.e. running) loves me very much. :) :)

I read the book several times when I was young. I think I've only seen the film once.

Yes, and of course I look just as glamorous and beautiful as Joan Fontaine whilst out running. :)

The only first line of a book I know, I think.

Running certainly loves you, what a great way round to think of it as. Don't let Mrs Danvers even get a word in :)

I won't. I've seen the end and I know she gets her comeuppance. :)

Haha Anne! I haven't named my Garmin but this is very creative 😊 A bit of a mouthful though when you're swearing 😏

I was never convinced that Mr DeWinter loved Rebecca that much actually...... a bit cold he was wasn't he?

I know what you mean. I prefer Mr Darcy personally. :)

I thought he was too moody ☹️ Couldn't be bothered with all that "strong silent" type. Do my head in 😏

Your gremlin must be really nasty...focus on Maxim and stay away from anywhere called Mandalay!!!!

What I call my gremlin is too foul to be repeated in front of young ladies like y'all!
