Upon hearing the news Grandma was in hospital, my first sister, my niece, my youngest son and myself decided … Continue reading IT’S NOT GOODBYE, IT’S SEE YOU LATER…..part one
"I don't know him from a bar of soap" I was scrolling through Facebook the other day (as apposed to any other day haha) when I came across a friend’s status.
