My choice….

My first reaction: WOW! That’s it. Someone out there has said it all. Fantastic. About time we show the men that it’s a woman’s world now!

Memories… the little things that makes them special

It's amazing how long back you can remember. One of my first memories is that of my pre-nursery teacher!
