Her hand tapped her chin, trying to find aContinue reading “Inspiration”
The week’s question from https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/10/18/can-see-no-truthful-tuesday-so-am-stepping-in-for-melanie/ and it is definitely one for me. Today, hubby and I went for our annual flu jab. I work in an environment where I am more likely to have flu, and my husband is getting to an age where he needs all the help he can get. I’m not muchContinue reading “Ouch – That Hurt”
My hope was that I posted a picture a day for October, but as ever life got in the way. On Tuesday I went to my Slimming world meeting and didn’t get home until eight o’clock. By the time we had dinner it was nearly nine. I did one post, but my eyes were droopingContinue reading “The Power of Three”
