Feeling Thankful

Feeling Thankful Sitting here at my desk – newly positioned within my home so that I am no longer either freezing cold or boiling hot in the conservatory – I am feeling quite reflective – and very thankful this morning!  I have so much to be thankful for – my dodgy shoulder that forced me to take time off from my previous job (and enabled me to see how much my children enjoyed/needed having me at home) is definitely one […]

Thankyou to everyone who came along. My pass the parcel […]
