A line in the sand….

Have you ever felt like running away? Just dropping everything, grabbing your car keys/travel pass/comfy walking shoes & heading off into the sunset?

Relentlessly Relentless….

Who cares for the carers? There are many days where I feel like waving the white flag of surrender. I give up. Stick a fork in me, I’m done.
