    Hey Elisheba - so lovely to see you back you have been missed!

    congrats on the water bill very clever on your part for the assessed charges!

    sorry to hear about your cat hope all is ok x 🙏🏻

    like hearing your ‘shopping from home’ with your existing wardrobe.  My OH is guilty of putting things away and not knowing what he has. I was trying to match his socks up the other week and stopped counting at 90x pairs of socks!! 😭

    have you any plans for Easter? Our family was supposed to come to ours the whole weekend but the matriarch had a fall and isn’t feeling too well so we are going to take Easter to her!
