I think the time has come to accept that clearing my busy mind of all the things I have to do & all things I want to do isn't as easy as I think. Now I'm not complaining here. In fact far from it. It's actually been quite eye opening to see that this is… Continue reading Just be You…part 2!

Merry Christmas! 

So it's nearly time, our tree is up and adorned with treasures we've collected or made over the years.
