Window Wednesday — Welford Park

Sometimes I think I want to be buried, and other times I think I want to be cremated.   I suppose I need to make my mind up really or my family will have no idea what to do after my demise and if they get it wrong (through no fault of their own) it

National Coffee Break Day

Who knew such a day existed?  Well I didn’t until I got my social media calendar pinned up on the wall at the beginning of the year.   Yesterday was National Popcorn Day, and tomorrow is National Hug Day.  But today is National Coffee Break Day. It is hard having a coffee break when you
