Rather taken aback by the new white with blue touches and underlinings on here this morning. If one was still sleepy I think one would have been startled awake by the glare!

    Jill commented on Scheherazade's wall:

    We did love the sea but sadly we don't live there anymore, had to move back to the city. But luckily there is a river not to far away my dog can swim in.
