Deb’s World on tour – part 2 of 2

When I left you last time (Deb's World on tour part 1)  I was just heading off for a road trip to see my youngest daughter. I was staying with my parents for a week and mum decided a few days at the beach would be nice.  We would be able to see Eliza at the …

A Birthday Treat - even if you are turning 30! What special birthday food does your daughter want for her 30th birthday? Going on past birthday experiences I can guess. In case you missed my post last week, my second daughter is turning 30 in a few days time - that means I will have …

First (over a certain age) to cross the finishing line!
