THE BIG “R” BECKONS…….how do I decide?
Quote“The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.” Vince Lombardi So, I’ve downsized my life, my house, thrown away all the clutter of the past, paid off the mortgage, reorganised my finances so I can live within my means, I’ve even made a new will.

FREE HUGS ANYONE?
Would you accept a Free hug from a stranger in Paris? Well this is exactly what I found myself roped into by my friend Muriel, on a recent visit to Paris along with Inga “the introvert” who initially came along as the photographer, but soon found herself with arms outstretched smiling at strangers and inviting … Continue reading
