I had thought that I seemed to be slipping behind with this year long project, but I actually managed a further nine thank you letters over the last quarter, just one less that in the second quarter. As in the previous two quarters, the majority were delivered by the Royal Mail. Two were delivered by … Continue reading A Year of Thanking | 3rd Quarter Review
Did we have a joyful July? Let's see what the numbers tell us ... 8 hours of tennis at Wimbledon resulted in seeing 4 matches, taking 258 photos (bonkers!), 2 alcoholic drinks and 1 cream tea.

Most of us would recognise TGIF as an acronym for Thank God It’s Friday, but in Brené’s world it stands for Trusting, Grateful, Inspired and Fun. Seven bundles of cuteness Trusting: that mummy duck can keep her … Continue reading TGIF | With a Difference #3

The Boy Child and I ventured South of the river yesterday in order to visit the Wimbledon Museum and take the tour. What a contrast to my last visit! No wandering the hallowed grounds except as part of a tour, or if you're a member of the AELTC. Our guide was excellent; informative, engaging … Continue reading Wimbledon Museum and Tour
Mary-Lou of Patio Postcards is hosting the second of three link-ups today for this year's Photography Scavenger Hunt.
