Hey there! I hope you are having a lovely day.
A friend of mine gave me 17 jigsaws yesterday! That made me so happy. I will have a lovely time working on them. I now have 35 in my to-do pile and look forward to doing every one. Then I'll pass them along. Love gifts like that.
Friends seems to be the theme for the week because I'll be getting together with two of my besties at the weekend. First time I've seen them since January 2020. We're having a picnic in the garden and I can't wait!
And one of my friends whom I have known since my thirties got married for the first time on her 65th birthday last week. I shed a little tear for that one.
