We're half way through August & I'm only just getting around to blogging about July!
The weeks & months always go so fast, I feel like a hamster on a wheel!
So July........ remembering the Somme, day out to a 1940's weekend, lots of knitting, cats socks, spending time in beds with the cats, lots of walking, finally getting in my old dress, new PM, Prince Charles visiting Exeter, Andy winning Wimbledon, remembering Teddy & lots of work!!
Phew..... it sounds like a busy month.
It's been a year since I gave up the fundraising job & I'm enjoying being back in the shop. However I've now agreed to do the Ebay shop for all 9 shops..... what a fool!!
As it's so busy in the shop I'm finding I'm doing more work at home so hence the lack of time. But..... everything we sell will help the animals so it's worth it.
Newly married to the caring RAF pilot Jonathan Reece, Emma thinks that life couldn’t be better. But her happiness is short-lived: within months, Jon’s plane is shot down over France and he is declared missing, presumed dead.
Alone and with two children to care for, Emma’s first thought is how to support her family. But when she makes a new friend in the American businessman Jack Harvey, she is faced with a difficult decision. Should she take a last chance at happiness?
After really enjoying the 1st book in this trilogy I couldn't wait to start the 2nd one. I was not disappointed as this one was set in WW2, my favourite period!
After such a bad start you really hope Emma has a happy life but she has lots of problems to face before that happy ending.......
So we're half way through the year....... it'll soon be Christmas!
June was a busy month on the work front..... our annual AGM, national RSPCA week, national volunteer week, lots of events in the shop to raise extra money, celebrating our 25th anniversary at Little Valley & topped off with our annual Shelter Day at the end of the month.... phew!!
Outside of work we celebrated OH's birthday, I finished my jumper & started my Home Fire jumper. I visited the Dig For Victory show in Bristol, treated the kids to a new toy, had some time off to spend with the kids & voted in the EU referendum........ what a shock???
