That means that I will need to have a couple of activities to do with the grand daughters. So I have come up with 2 that I have found on line. Both require little in the way of resources and... Continue reading

My replacement bag clips have started to arrive and my stock bag is looking a lot more healthy. I paid postage on these, about 15c each, which in the scheme of things isn't very much. I think I will pay... Continue reading

I found a talk by Kate Davies from Kate Davies Designs on TED talks. In this talk she discusses the impact of her stroke and deconstructs just how it has changed her physical reality. Kate was only 36 years old... Continue reading
