Did He Really Say That?

Did He Really Say That? 080511 Although we live in a fabulously technological world, every so often it just doesn’t work! So when my telephone wasn’t working, I made a call to my supplier in the hope that they would fix it for me. “We’ll log a call with the engineer” they said.

That’s What Friends Are For

miEasterMondayBlog 250411 What a different world we live in when the sun comes out! After enjoying a lazy rainy day on the Saturday before Easter, reading a book and generally pottering about in the house, I went out for a walk with a friend and her new bike for some fresh air in the warmth of the Easter Monday sunshine. Now I haven’t been on a bike for many years however I know that you…
