I don't want you to get bored looking at me and hubby in the garden last year, so I'll show it to you in the daylight, my refuge where the foxes wander.
There is not much that many of you don't know about me now, I enjoy a good laugh and if I can find one I will. If I can make someone smile my day is complete. I enjoy people and people watching but do not suffer fools easily, mainly because my dad told me I would be one when I grew up, and I think he may have been right.
I was born in Yorkshire and the extended family are still there but we now live in Staffordshire, we being my husband of 33 years and our two sons, well one of them has left and lives with his partner a girl whom we love dearly.
My latest hobby is writing and from this I am learning a great deal from and about people, that write.
My latest, latest thing to keep me occupied is making myself a nice new fleece top, it's getting cold and my old one; which must be 12 years old has had to be sent to a better place and I miss it already RIP>

    oh my! thanks for reminding me. Please just let him know he is in our thoughts and I will put his daughter back on my prayer list. I forget that some people stay in comas for a very long time and I sincerely hope she won't be one of them.

    This is too sad to imagine. Personally it amazes me--even Jesus said "why hath thou forsaken me"--Certainly David is being tested to the max and needs our prayers.
