Surprise! Surprise! It's July. We are half way through 2015. Thinking back to January when I wrote my first blog for 2015, in purple - a colour showing optimism, I suggested that this year could be the year when dreams came true. MAKE IT HAPPEN! Has anyone achieved their wildest dreams yet? If so, please share for encouragement for everyone else. If not, there's another six months to go.
Last week I brought you information and pretty pics from the lovely Oak House in West Bromwich pointing out that we tend not to visit places on our own doorstep. I hope you found that blog inspirational and have or will be visiting somewhere local to you.
