The value of Family- Don’t leave it to late!

I write this post as we come to the end of another year. A year for so many which has been turbulent and one that many of us would not like to go through again. The thought of home schooling with another App sends shiverers down my spine! Marks Knee replacement, with a leg alignment with 13 weeks recovery, total nightmare when I’m not the best nurse I only ever give a day for illness.

We have met some amazing customers and had so many returning, heard of new arrivals and met families joining other families. We generally love meeting our customers.

In the last few weeks, we have exhibited in Cheltenham, London and both Victorians Worcester and Stratford. As amazing as these events are they do put a strain on family life with 16 + hours a day, but as I say it’s only for a short period and if we work as a team, we can get through anything.

The value of family- While I am thankful we got through the events as a family and missed chicken pox and the dreaded Covid. Our family got hit with the unfortunate phone call this morning. Marks Dad had a heart attack. Thankfully he is being cared for, but it puts life into perspective.  All to often we take our loved ones for granted. Before Elizabeth goes to school and Mark goes out to work, we tell each other we love each other, because life is so busy out there and you just never know what life will throw at you.

I am thankful for the friends I have around me, for the customers who have supported my business. In return we hope we provide a service that is excellent and one that makes them remember us for all the right reasons.

As we decent on the week of Christmas I get to spend much loved time with Elizabeth, thank full for the joy of being a Mummy and proud that Elizabeth understands the value of work and how fortunate she is to go to sleep each night with her tummy full.

Helping the Homeless





Elizabeth’s school is also a massive support network for us as a small family and so this Christmas we will be providing lunches and making cakes for the street cafe of Worcester who serves the homeless people of Worcester, a remarkable charity. Remembering those around us, not when they are gone!
