June’s Happiness!

Ok, so I’m a few days late posting this, but in my defence it was my birthday at the end of the month so there was a fair amount of recovery time required from the celebrations! More and more these days I find myself wanting to express gratitude for the amazing people I have in my life, be they family, old friends, new friends, friends I haven’t seen in a long time, or people I have yet to get to know properly.  So again, many thanks to all of you!

Here are some snippets of things that made me smile last month:
