As the door opened a chorus of happy birthday sang out and […]

My last blog reflected my feelings during the past few weeks…………meh………..to say the least!

The ornaments of your house will be the guests who frequent it.  ~Author Unknown I got a lovely surprise on Saturday evening when I opened the door to two people who hold a very special place in my heart. I had been told by my lovely family that my mum and sister, niece and nephew and my mother and father in law would be over for dinner. There was lots of excitement and a little […]

We arrived home to a full house, Darren’s mum and dad had called, his cousin Jack was with them. Jake was over the moon at being able to spend time with Jack. I’m surprised Jack was allowed […]
