Author Health: Life…(I’m back from hitouts + Major Announcements)

Happy First Blogiversary!

Hullo, world!

Hullo, world! It’s another brilliant Wednesday morning. We are finally done with gloomy rainy days and back in sunshine mode here on the west coast.

There has been lots of hurt and anger recently from the heartwrenching news in our neighbouring country, America.
