Taking A Break

Kettering-20120218-00036This is just a short note to let you know that I’m taking a break from posting for a while. Unfortunately, I haven’t been doing well with my health over the last few months and also my Mum has just been very poorly in hospital and is now home, hopefully, to recuperate. A little break is in order while we gather some strength. I know you’ll understand and be wishing us well.

To all my blogging friends, as I may not get to do many visits to your sites over the next few weeks/months, happy holiday season and happy new year to you all in advance! I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts during 2013 and getting to know more about so many of you. Thanks so much for the lovely comments and supportive thoughts you’ve left for me on this site. I really appreciate all your visits.

Wishing you all well and looking forward to seeing more of you, and posting again, in 2014!!

Much love,
