What a year it has been! I was writing a letter to a friend yesterday to be sent with her Christmas card. She lives up in Scotland and we only manage to see each other only once or twice a year. This year we haven’t managed to meet up, so I thought I would scribble … More A time for contemplation
There are times when all we can do is lean back, take a deep breath… and switch off. I don’t know if it’s just something I struggle with, or if there are those of you who share this, but it seems like life is a constant bombardment of noise, colour… and demands. I think with … More Switch off!
