Hello again, so we have got through another week. I hope you survived yesterdays storms , not really what we needed on top of everything else around at the moment. Still trying to enjoy things day to day , been walking and watching the birds in the feeder , the other day the long tailed tits were having a right old feast... Then after a dreary day the world can still surprise you with a lovely sky just before sunset. I just think we need to take whatever we can just now that makes us happy. I must admit I sometimes...

Just when you think things can's get any worse...bam you turn on the T.V. and there is the news....oh my goodness. It is tricky to keep smiling and full of Christmas spirit when the things we hold dear are just out of reach, but although the media like to be dramatic Christmas  isn't cancelled and neither was Diwali. Ramadan/ Eid, Hanukkah or any other important festival this year. They were or will be different., but the true spirit of them remains, and no one can cancel it. I know it is so hard , and for some people who are...
