One of my favourite films is 'It's a Wonderful Life' with James Stewart. I must have watched it every year for over 30 to 40 years and as schmaltzy as it is I luuuuuurrrrrrvvvvvve it. Makes me cry each and every time...happy tears.....tears that remind me how much I love my family, my life, my friends and my home.
We have just returned from Somerset.
We had a truly splendid time.
Now we are back at home and I am reminded that the bathroom is a mess and that we need new carpet in the sitting room and I would really like a kitchen extension/replacement
and this is a mess and that is shabby and ..oh it goes on and on.....but.....with tweaking and a bit of thought and tlc and cash we could make our home better...and even without the tweaking it is home.
The Somerset trip was the last of my 'birthday' outings, and I didn't manage to get to Leicester, or Scotland or Liverpool and a few other places, but Majorca, Lisbon, Vienna, Bratislava, Seattle, Canada, London, Paris and Wells have all been absolutely fantastic. I am a very lucky girl (of 60!).
