I know I only posted my June update at the end of July and my last BLOG was a big part why. Here is what happened next.

I haven’t blogged for a while, there really hasn’t been a lot of inspiration of late. That and I wasn’t sure if anyone wanted to hear […]Read More September Is Children’s Cancer Awareness Month.
Well I haven’t blogged for a while. I guess I got tired of the whinging and whining. So I apologise for doing that. I have about 4 or 5 started blogs. Some a couple of lines, some a couple of paragraphs. But the motivation left the building. This one is a bit about the last […]Read More Not All Anniversaries Are Too Be Celebrated But Some Still Need A Drink.
You know how sometimes you plan to do something and then other things happen so you delay and delay until so many other things happen that you forget? Well I do.
