Feeling Calm #155

For my birthday a couple of years ago I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little.

This Plus That Equals…. Grief

This plus that equals…. grief

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about grief. Last week I lost both my grandad and my uncle on the same day.
