Still, we are still here...
Through all the frustrations, we are still plodding along. Despite the constant reminders, we still get through.
Its not been easy, but we do it.

Im saddened that our beautiful Avon river that we were so proud of, is now a dumping ground for all manner of rubbish and debris. Too many people needing care, to get things sorted elsewhere. It is a shame. Our River smells, is dirty, has sewerage and other contaminants in it and generally looks awful!

So who knows what lies around the corner? Something good I hope... I cant entertain thoughts that there is more sadness and frustrations ahead. But if there is, somewhere therein will lie the strength to get through it I guess?
Thinking of You!
