I’ve been thinking a lot recently about who or what a hero is. I think partly because my life has changes so dramatically in the last few months but also because the word hero seems to be bandied about an awful lot at the moment.

I don’t know if you’ve looked out the window today but it’s a bit cold and snowy outside. We were supposed to be moving this weekend but it’s been postponed due to the Red weather warning for snow! We can’t get our car out and Teddy is even refusing to go out to pee! The… Continue reading It’s cold out there!
