Goodybye Sandy.....

Hiddy Ho Pussycats.
I am sorry but today I will not be able to post my regular blog.
I have to go and pay my respects to a friend of the family who passed away on Thursday.

Writing today about "things to buy" seemed a wee bit trivial.
I have a bigger picture issue on my mind today.
Today is going to be difficult and even if I dare say so kind of scary.
It will be painful but necessary.
We miss you Sandy.
Hug someone tight today and tell them that you love them.
Ciao Pussycats. xo
