Blogtober Day 22: How I de-stress and find my calm, and how you can too.

Disclaimer:  This is not medical advice in any way.  If you have problems dealing with stress or sometimes feel overwhelmed (like I do) please consult your doctor or medical professional.    

Hi Honeys, 
What's the first thing that jumps into your mind when I say the word meditate?  

As my health (and mobility) have worsened these past few years, I've tried to embrace the concept of self care.  The care and maintenance of this fleshy shell I walk around in hasn't ever been a priority to me, I'm ashamed to say.  Life has always been too full, too busy, and for every minute in the day I always had three minutes worth of stuff to do. 

Even now, when I have more time to myself,self care doesn't come easily to me. There is a part of my mind that considers it so selfish to think only of myself, even when it's related to my health.  I'm sure a very smart person somewhere could go into the psychological side of why that is but I'm not that smart so I won't be the one making any sense of it all πŸ˜– 

Back to meditating.  Do you meditate honeys?  Maybe, like me, you do and don't even know it! I should explain...

How I de-stress and find my calm, and how you can too.

I was told (to my great surprise) around a year or so ago that what I do to find calm, to avoid panic attacks, is actually a form of meditation.  I honestly had no idea, I only knew that it worked and had even helped me get through a CT scan at the hospital. 

I'll start from the beginning, will I honeys?  Before I do, why don't you fetch a cuppa, and maybe a cookie or two, and I'll meet you back here after the page break? 

Blogtober Day 21: Two Of My Favourite Autumn Smiles 😊

Disclaimer: I haven't been paid to promote any products  πŸ˜Š  As someone who lives for Spring (and tolerates autumn and winter to get there) I just wanted to share a little smile that's only available at this time of year, one that I do look forward to 😊   

Hi Honeys, 

If you've read any of my posts you'll know that I'm not a great fan of this time of year.  Every year, for as long as I can remember, even as a child, I've wanted to sleep till spring comes back again.  I don't like the cold, dark, far-too-long, days and nights.  Nope, not for me, honeys. 

I live for spring, when the garden starts to wake up around me I always feel better, even my arthritis seems to ease a little.  Mostly, I live in dread of the approach of autumn and winter and start a count down to spring every year 😊  

There are, of course, smiles to be found at this time of year.  I just find them so much harder to find is all, but they do exist and it's important to acknowledge these smiles and be thankful for them πŸ’—  

Two of my favourite autumn smiles :)

Forever first in my autumn smiles list is watching Hubby and our furbaby Jade from the kitchen window, clearing the garden of the fallen leaves
πŸ’–   

Hubby will spend the longest time gathering up the leaves into a huge pile, with our baby Jade following him around, picking up leaves around him to play with and occasionally dropping her tennis ball at his feet for him to throw for her.  We adore our baby and Hubby doesn't even mind that when he's built up a huge pile of leaves, that Jade runs into it 😊 He just smiles and tidies the leaves away when she's finished playing πŸ’•

There is though, something only available at this time of year, something that's usually only added to most people's shop to decorate the tree with, but after the year that's just passed, maybe buying an extra pack of this yummy treat could be forgiven?  

Rosie, what are you waffling about? I hear you ask honeys πŸ˜ƒ Candy canes, dear ones.  Those lovely little holiday treats, and of course you could just go ahead and eat them, but why not make them into a proper treat? Why not do this...

How to make your hot chocolate into a real treat

If you have any candy canes on hand already honeys, why not grab one and head to the kitchen.  If you don't, I so wish I could pass one along to you through the internetπŸ’–  File this idea away till you have a few on hand dear ones, it really is a treat ☕  Off we go then to the kitchen to gather the following supplies...

Yummy, Minty Hot Chocolate 

1 large mug
Milk
Your favourite cocoa mix
and of course.... your candy cane :)
Optional extra: some lovely cream :) Freshly whipped cream is a real treat but a can of squeezy cream works too.

Directions:

  1. Warm your milk until it's lovely and hot 
  2. Carefully mix through your cocoa till it's all combined with the milk taking care not to burn yourself
  3. Add your cream to the top if you want to (this is supposed to be a wee treat after all)
  4. Pop your candy cane into your mug and take your lovely creamy hot chocolate to somewhere comfy and put your feet up. 
  5. Relax and enjoy! The candy cane will melt quite quickly so use it to stir your hot chocolate and you'll be left with the most delicious, yummy minty hot chocolate :) 

Why not make lots of yummy hot chocolate, gather candy canes and share with loved ones? Children will love stirring their hot chocolate with a candy cane. Why not forget about the housework for a while honeys, make some yummy hot chocolate, some lovely memories and get to the housework later 😊 Enjoy πŸ’–

Till next time dear ones, huggles always xxx

Hugs always honeys, Rosie xx

Blogtober Day 20: Gingerbread Cookies And A Fun & Spooky Recipe Printable πŸŽƒ

Hi Honeys,

How are you today?  Well, it's getting awfully close to the end of October (how did that happen so quickly?) so with Halloween approaching, it's time to make the most delicious gingerbread cookies ever 😍  These cookies are so good honeys!  I've shared this recipe before but because the cookies are so good and because they're so fun to make, I thought I'd share it again. 

They really are so easy to make, they taste amazing and the scent of gingerbread goes all through the house while baking them
😍  Take that, gingerbread candle....even though I do like that too, but nothing beats the smell of a delicious batch of gingerbread cookies baking happily away in the kitchen....   

Gingerbread Cookies And A Fun & Spooky Recipe Printable πŸŽƒ

To make the cookies in the photo (above) I used a ghost and a bat from a set of cookies cutters I had in my collection in the kitchen, but you'll find these cookie cutters everywhere honeys.   You don't even need cookie cutters at all.  You could have fun cutting cookies with whatever you have on hand in the kitchen.  I've used an egg cup to make perfect, round mini cookies before and they were adorable 😊 

Of course you don't have to wait for Halloween, or any other holiday, to have gingerbread cookies.  They're delicious any time of the year, the cookie dough is so easy to make and you can make up two or three batches at a time. These cookies really are so good that maybe you'll want to do this anyway πŸ˜‹  Or, you could make up the cookie dough, bake a batch to enjoy and store the (uncooked) dough ready to bake as needed.   

To store extra cookie dough, roll it up tightly in cling film/plastic wrap and store in the fridge for 2-3 days or you can freeze the raw cookie dough for up to 3 months.  When you want to use it, remove from the freezer and place into the fridge to defrost overnight then roll out and bake as usual.

Gingerbread Cookies And A Fun & Spooky Recipe Printable πŸŽƒ


A tip honeys, do you prefer your cookies to be slightly "chewy" or thinner and crispier?  To achieve either, simply adjust the thickness of your cookie dough when you roll it out.  The thicker the cookie, the chewier it will be, whereas a thinner cookie will be crispier.

The Most Delicious Gingerbread Cookies Ever, So Easy To Make, Why Not Make An Extra Batch (Or Two) And Store For Later? See The Blog Post For Details.

Once baked, and allowed to cool, either have fun decorating with different colours of icing sugar or, as I did in the photo, sift icing sugar over the top.  Wee ones love helping to decorate cookies so they'll want to join in the fun.  When decorated, step back and await compliments and yum sounds from loved ones
πŸ’–

You can download and save or print 
an A4 version of this printable recipe here honeys.  If you're printing it, choose the option "print to fit " on your printers settings and you should have a lovely A4 copy.   

Are you a gingerbread cookie fan honeys?  These cookies would make a lovely hostess gift too, if visiting friends & family over the holidays.  Why not put them into a pretty gift box lined with some tissue paper?

Till next time dear ones, stay warm and safe everybody, hugs always xx

Hugs always, Rosie xx

Blogtober Day 19: 7 Things to remember before starting to declutter...

 Hi Honeys, 

Are you decluttering or trying to bring order to your home right now?  If you are, well, join the gang, there are so many of us working on this same problem right now and if your home is like ours you'll know how overwhelming it can be.  I actually can't remember when we started working on our home, but I do know we're nowhere near to finishing it πŸ˜”  

There have been gains along the way, we have a growing pile of empty bins and baskets to remind us of the volume of belongings we've parted with, but in our over thirty years together we have simply collected too much stuff for it to be solved by any kind of a quick fix.  

We're both pack rats dear ones, although Hubby slightly less than me I think, but the fact remains, we've spent our years together filling cupboards, drawers and our loft/attic with stuff.  I really do believe that it's possible to become oblivious to clutter and that this is how it accumulates.  We get used to passing that box that's always in the hallway or the stack of books in the corner.  Clutter blindness is real.  

7 Things to remember before starting to declutter.

So, all that having been said dear ones, and for what it's worth, here's what the last few years of trying to tackle our stuff mountain have taught me (so far...)

7 Things To Remember Before Starting To Declutter...


1. Give yourself a break.  

Seriously, stop with the self criticism.  The world does enough judging without our judging ourselves harshly too! We live in a world where everyday we're encouraged to buy the latest wot-nots and over time our space fills up with all of these possibly no longer needed or wanted, space consuming possessions.  

It is what it is honeys.  We start where we are.  You've made a decision to clear the clutter and carve out a new space for yourself. Celebrate that. That change in mindset alone is a victory in itself and will carry you through when you want to give up.  Picture your home the way you want it to look.  Fill in all the details in your minds eye, now memorise that image and work towards it.   

2. Make plans.  

Every general needs a master plan for the battle ahead.  You're the general of your household, the clutter that's making you unhappy is the enemy and setting up systems that work will mean, overtime, you'll create order and will win the war.  You've got this πŸ’–  

3. Recruit help if you can. 

This can be a partner, a family member or a friend.  Whoever is helping should be non judgemental, a sympathetic person who will understand if you have problems parting with certain things (and will never force you to.)  

Your helper should want to help but know the final decision on your possessions should always be yours.  It can be fun sorting through and organising a space and you might find that you'll get done faster with help. 

The best help to recruit, of course, is always the person/people you share your space with.  A beautifully organised space won't stay that way if one person is doing all the work.  You'd be surprised though how easily systems become habits for everyone.  When items have a home it will become second nature to return put these items away.   

4. Baby steps. 

Small victories, all of them, every, single, one of them, all add up.  Today the "junk drawer" in the kitchen, tomorrow (or whenever you get to it) those boxes in the loft that you haven't opened since two house moves ago   Baby steps will get you there. 

5. When you get tired, stop!  

Yes, I know there's a school of thought that says "power through, keep going!" well hooey to all that! Do you know what happens (certainly to me) when you run out of steam but you still force yourself to keep going anyway? You'll begin to regret having even started, in fact you might end up hating the whole process so much that you never start working on it again.  

Most important of all, you'll lose focus and will achieve so much less than if you were rested and in the right "let's do this!" frame of mind. This simply can't be allowed, because it will make you dread ever starting again.  Our brain files away upsets and bad feelings and will then try to protect us from them by avoiding repeating the actions that caused them in the first place. 

There's always tomorrow dear ones and anything you've done today is banked. Did you finish a drawer? A cupboard? Make new homes for anything, a place they can be taken to when found elsewhere?  Then you did well honey.  Systems work. Any system you set up, and turn into a habit, will work and can always be tweaked down the road if needs be.  

If you can recover enough to keep going after stopping for something to eat and maybe a cuppa, that's fabulous! Do that, and kudos to you. I'm approaching this from the view point of someone who has a chronic illness and I know how easily the body can just become completely drained.  Rest if you need to honeys, just do what you can, when you can.  You'll get there.    

6 Celebrate the wins. 

Take the time to appreciate every milestone you reach, every system you set up that works.  Don't rush out and celebrate by buying new clutter as a way of celebrating though. Sometimes a high five or a phone call to a friend to share your success can give you the same glow.  Treat yourself to an experience, something to make you feel good, that you'll remember and want to repeat. What about a movie night in, in your newly organised and fabulous living/family room?   

7. It's never completely finished.  

We don't declutter once and then it's done.  Just as you made plans to tackle the clutter, make another battle plan to maintain your fabulous clutter-free space. The systems you've set up, keep checking on them.  Is everybody sticking to them?  Don't let it fall backwards again.  Why not schedule a regular sweep around your home for any clutter piles that might be starting to grow?   

All of those perfect, minimalist homes we see on Pinterest didn't start out that way and you can be sure their owners are mindful of what gains entry to their homes and stays there. 

Having an organised home doesn't mean it has to be stripped bare of all of your possessions honeys.  I know that neither Hubby nor I will ever be minimalists.  What we want to achieve though is to reach a level where we own what we need and, just as importantly, we need what we own... but with, you know... happy sprinkles 😊  Happy sprinkles are the things we keep because they make us happy. 

That stack of paperbacks I'm currently working my way through will go on their way when I'm finished reading them but the adorable, 3 foot tall soft toy hound dog that my beloved Mother-in-law brought for me over 20 years ago all the way from the south of England, on two trains (even changing stations in London) well, he's not going anywhere πŸ’–  Happy sprinkles πŸ’•   

Are you decluttering honeys?  What are your happy sprinkles?   Till next time dear ones, hugs always xx

Hugs always, Rosie xx

Blogtober Day 18: Countdown to Spring Begins Today...

Hi Honeys,
This morning I woke up and made the mistake of going downstairs without my slippers, as soon as my foot touched the icy cold downstairs laminate flooring (all carpet upstairs) I decided it was past time for me to start (properly) my yearly countdown to spring 😊 

It's my coping mechanism I suppose, for the (too) dark, (too) long nights we have on the West Coast of Scotland.  It's already, as discovered by my poor feet this morning, much colder and in just a few weeks it will be dark as midnight by 4 pm, and will stay that way until around 9 am next morning.  It drains all of my energy away every year, it really does.    
 
So, here we are dear ones, there are 153 days till spring...

Countdown to spring has started today...

Ideally, I could just hibernate till next March.  Off I'd go upstairs with our furbaby Jade (she doesn't like winter either, bless her) a hot water bottle and enough favourite movies and box set dvds to keep us busy till the seasons behave themselves and the garden had woken up from its (too) long winter nap.

First to appear most years are our gorgeous peonies...

Countdown to spring has started today.  Our beautiful peonies are always the first sign of spring arriving.

Peonies are so, so beautiful when they burst into life but they're only in bloom for such a short time honeys. Only a few weeks, but while there, they're the highlight of our back garden 🌹

In our tiny front garden are the rose shrubs we planted in memory of my much loved Grammy and equally adored Mother-in-law...
  
Countdown to spring has started today.  I haven't been able to spend as long in the garden with our roses this year so I can't wait till the buds start to appear again in spring.

Every year they get more beautiful and every year they mean more to me (if that's even possible.)  I was blessed to have these two strong, brave, wonderful women in my life and, because they both loved roses as much as I do, caring for their roses helps me to keep them close.  I miss them both so much and in winter I miss their roses too.

Right now the lawn in the back garden is collecting the leaves from the sycamore trees that run the length of the lane behind our home...  

Countdown to spring has started today. Mostly though, I want to sit with our furbaby Jade in the garden, under the sycamore trees, and watch the birds at their feeders and just enjoy the sunshine, and I want to do all this without feeling so cold my nose tingles.

While it's already too chilly to be outside for very long, I look forward to springtime when I can sit outside again with Jade, watch the birds at their feeders and just enjoy the sunshine and mostly, I want to be able to do all this without feeling so cold my nose and cheeks tingle 😊      

What's your favourite season honeys?  Till next time, stay warm and safe everybody, hugs always xx

Hugs always, Rosie xx

Blogtober Day 17: It's That Time Of Year Again, Charlie Brown!

Disclaimer: I haven't been paid to promote any products, just sharing one of our Autumn traditions that always makes me smile 😊 

Hi Honeys,

How are you today?  It's day 17 of Blogtober, we're midway through October and that means....

It's That Time Of Year Again, Charlie Brown! sharing one of our Autumn traditions that always makes me smile 😊

Do you have traditions dear ones?  We do, lots of them 😊 For instance, a visit to Ikea always means a new soft toy for our furbaby Jade, especially when it's her birthday πŸ’–  

As the days get shorter, and the nights get darker, I do more baking (fruit crumbles are a favourite, I'm making a pear crumble this weekend, and anything with cinnamon, like these delicious Scottish apple turnovers... yum!) 

One of our favourite traditions though, at this time of year, is to sit down to watch It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, also known as the Halloween episode of Peanuts πŸ’—  

It's That Time Of Year Again, Charlie Brown! sharing one of our Autumn traditions that always makes me smile 😊

This little dvd comes out of our collection every year.  At other times too off course, Christmas isn't Christmas if we don't watch A Charlie Brown Christmas πŸŽ„πŸŽ…

In October though, we first watch It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and then we watch the other five episodes too, usually an episode each evening, or we might even binge watch the whole disc while making up treat bags for visiting trick or treaters 😊   

It's That Time Of Year Again, Charlie Brown! sharing one of our Autumn traditions that always makes me smile 😊

There have been so many losses this year honeys.  People have lost loved ones, lost their jobs, everyone is frightened of this terrible virus, not knowing who to believe in the media.  Some reports are enough to frighten spoonies like me into never leaving our home again and others are saying it will all blow over in months. 

I think we need our traditions.  We need to hold onto the familiar, until the world around us finds it's new normal, whatever that will be.  This year will be the first in over thirty years that we won't have spent hours making up little treat bags for Halloween.  No trick or treating this year honeys, and I can't bear it.  

I love Halloween even more than Christmas, I really do.  We're in an area with a high infection rate apparently and one of my medications flattens my immune system.  There will be next year though, we have to believe that everything will get back to normal soon. I'm praying that it does and that no more loved ones are lost. 

Do you have holiday (or any other times) traditions?  Till next time dear ones, stay warm and safe, 
hugs always xx    

Hugs always, Rosie xx

Blogtober Day 16: Excess packaging and what you can do about it...

Disclaimer: I haven't been paid to promote any company or service, nor am I trying to run any down either, it's just a minor rant about the sheer volume of waste going on around us, and hopefully a couple of possible solutions that might help. 

Hi Honeys, 

Do you ever feel as if you're trying to do the best you can to reuse, recycle and avoid waste and then it's like the outside world deliberately trips us up?  We're all trying to do what we can to avoid wasting anything but sometimes though, it really is outwith our control, such as when we order goods online and companies deliver them... well, like this....

Excess packaging and what you can do about it...

First a little background about the above order.  Our furbaby Jade adores these little trays of food.  It's not her main food, she has a grain free, wheat free (and any other unhealthy additives such as bulking agents free) dry kibble as well as her fresh (though cooked) proteins such as chicken, salmon and tuna.  She does though, really enjoy these little meals and has them now and again as a treat. 

Having recently ordered four packs (with each pack having four tiny 150g trays so a total of 16 little trays) I was shocked to have them delivered in four different boxes, all delivered together, at the same time, by the same delivery driver.  Now, since the trays, and indeed the boxes, aren't large.  This leads me to ask, why?  Why use four different boxes, with four different address labels (extra paper and ink all used of course) all going to the same destination at the same time?  

Sorry.  Could I have a minute please honeys?  Thank you....

....gets up and does 3 circuits of the coffee table waving arms in the air in a frustrated sort of angry thing... really quietly though, you know.... because Jade is having a nap on the sofa πŸ’– 

Well, (..covers Jade with her blankie...) As annoying as this was, it got me thinking.  We're all of us doing our best, trying to live our lives with as little negative impact on the world around us as we can and when something like this happens, it makes me go on a serious guilt trip! I mean, I ordered those boxes of food.  My fault. 

I do have reasons for ordering them online.  We don't own a car, the senior version of this food isn't so easy to find in our local supermarket (our baby will be 11 in March) so finding it online and being able to have it delivered seemed too good to be true! 

I really am grateful to have our baby Jade's food delivered honeys but this experience has really made me reconsider.  So, how do we let the companies we buy from know how we feel about this kind of waste of resources?  

Why not grab a cuppa (and maybe a cookie or two) and join me after the page break and I'll share (hopefully) a couple of useful solutions and one very exhausting adventure I went on, see you in a few mins honeys...

Blogtober Day 15: 10 Easy Ways To Use Less Water At Home

Disclaimer:  I haven't been paid to promote any products or shops, I'm just sharing some of my favourite ways to use less water. 

Hi Honeys, 

Back again for day fifteen of Blogtober, thank you so much for joining me πŸ’–  How are you today? All well and staying warm I hope?  Today I thought I'd share some of favourite ways to save water around our home. 

10 easy ways to save water at home

Water is such a precious resource.  I know it can feel as if water is always available.  All we have to do is to turn on a tap after all but, this isn't the case everywhere, as we know.   In fact, as with so many of the planets other precious resources, if we carry on as we are, those resources will become dangerously depleted. 

There are so many simple ways to use less water in our day to day lives.  If we all try our best,  think of the difference we can make.  Let's have a look shall we?   
  

10 Easy Ways To Use Less Water At Home... 


1. Turn the tap off when brushing your teeth or shaving, and put the "plug" into the drain and run only the water you need when washing your hands and face.   

2. Use a basin in the sink when washing fruit or vegetables instead of leaving the water running.  When you're done washing your lovely fruit and veggies, use the left over water to water your garden (not if you've added vinegar to the water though!)

3. Shower instead of having a bath when you can honeys, and it's so easy to fit an attachment to your shower head that will reduce the flow of water.  When you do have a bath, try only half filling the bath. 

5. Install a "rain butt" in the garden that will collect rain water.  This water can then be used to water the garden on rain free days.  We don't have this problem in Scotland, we're blessed with an abundance of rain all year long, it's the sunshine we don't get to see a great deal of 😊

6. Use a bucket and sponge to wash your car, those pressure washers waste so much water and it all goes onto the street and down the drain honeys. 

7. Try not to run the washing machine or the dishwasher unless you have enough for a full load.  If you only have a couple of dishes, cups etc, hand wash instead.  

Both your washing machine and dishwasher should have an eco programme, this will not only save water but it will also save money too because it will use less energy.  If your dishwasher doesn't have an eco programme, look out for a "quick wash" or "low water" setting.  

8. Just as you can adapt your shower head to reduce the water used during your shower, there is also a device that can be fitted to your cistern in order to reduce the water used when the toilet is flushed.  It's possible to save between one and three litres of water every single time the toilet is flushed. 

9. Never ignore home maintenance tasks like a dripping tap. It's surprising how much water can be wasted due to the failure to fit a wee washer honeys.  There is a useful video tutorial here showing how to fix a dripping tap. 

10. Leave the garden hose in the shed and instead go "old school" and use a watering can instead.  This year on my birthday, my best friend bought me the most beautiful, vintage watering can and a gorgeous little trowel.  It was the best gift and I so love them.  She knows I'm happiest fussing over our roses (thank you Miriam, love you honey xx) and it made my whole day πŸ’–

There you have it honeys, ten ever-so-easy ways to save water around your home that are so easy you don't even have to think about them, they'll quickly become new habits in no time too. 

Over to you then, do you have any hints or tips to share?  Till next time dear ones, stay warm and safe everybody, hugs always xx

Huggles always, Rosie xx

Blogtober Day 14: My Sweet Hubby Really Did Bring Me The Moon!

Disclaimer:  I haven't been paid to promote any products or shops, just wanted to share the sweetest gift from Hubby that really made me smile x

Hi Honeys,

How are you today?  I'm chuffed! Sorry, is chuffed used anywhere outside Scotland?  Chuffed = very happy 😊  Hubby brought home the sweetest gift today, it's just lovely and has me smiling, in spite of being tormented for the past few days with pain in my spine (the weather is changing, it's getting colder and damper and as most spoonies with arthritis will tell you... well, just ouch honeys) so I needed a wee smile and here it is...  

My Sweet Hubby Really Did Bring Me The Moon!

A few months ago, I kept seeing the most awesome lamps designed to look like the moon.  They were all over the place online, they kept appearing on Pinterest, and they looked so cool.  

Fast forward a few months and I'm watching a haul video on youtube a couple of weeks ago and there it is, a moon lamp!  In a haul from Poundland! That can't be right, I thought.  I showed Hubby the video and then thought no more of it.  

Then what happens?  He brought two moon lamps home with him on Monday...

My Sweet Hubby Really Did Bring Me The Moon!  Sharing the sweetest gift from Hubby x

Honestly, I've taken so many photos trying to capture how lovely these lamps are and these photos are the best I've been able to manage.  They don't do the lamps any justice honeys.  I think the lamps are £2 each.  They're not bright enough to read by but they do cast a gorgeous, calming glow.  They'd be great as nightlights for wee ones I think.    

It was such a lovely surprise, especially since this hasn't been the best week due to very ouchie pain in my spine, so it really did make me smile 😊 (thank you sweetheart x)  I have the best Hubby ever (well I knew that already, bless him πŸ’•) It's not often a girl can say her Hubby really did give her the moonπŸ’– 

If you'd like to find them, have a look in your local Poundland or Dollar Store honeys. Wishing you the best week, chock full of smiles, hugs and sweet surprises to make you smile πŸ’–  Till next time dear ones, hugs always xx

Hugs always, Rosie x
