You may all remember that I am trying to take time out each day to consider the things I’m grateful for, whether they are big or small, narrow or broad.
You may also all be wondering how our planned Cornwall camping trip went. Updates on that to follow but in the meantime here is my daily thanks log for the last couple of weeks (the last ‘thanks’ I posted about was 17 March) and the most recent few may give you a sneak preview as to how our trip went!
