#atouchofkind March

March has gone by with a blink of an eye, I've been busy with the March meet the maker prompts and have neglected this little hashtag a little but still when I look there's been so much kindness out there, gifts being sent throughout the world and I've been lucky to receive some myself so… Continue reading #atouchofkind March

Giving Nature a Home

Doing our part in giving nature a home, however small that part may be, is so important. Now, I'm not about to say I've never killed a house spider thats threatened me on a dark autumn evening. Or that I've never batted a wasp thats flew too close to my face, or my G&T. But… Continue reading Giving Nature a Home
