Today is Stephanie Scott’s 28th birthday and her mother asked us all to join the family by stopping for a cup of tea and a mint slice (her favourite biscuit) at 3pm today. My workplace stopped to honour and remember Stephanie, it was a sombre tea break to say the least.

As the mother of a bride to be, I can’t begin to imagine how her fiancée and her family are coping with this awful tragedy. With everything ready for the wedding and guests arriving, the sadness would be…

Hello again!

Wild orange, citrus bliss, lemon - these are the lovely smells emanating from my diffuser at the moment.  I have taken to using the diffuser …
