INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE FOR THE DAY

Don’t ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday. Let it go.

HAPPINESS IS…

Happiness is…coming across a brand new classic BBC programme.

GRANDAD’S ONE LINER JOKE OF THE DAY

I spilt some stain remover on my sleeve. How do you get that out?

LOVE IS…

Love is…sometimes having to forget and move on.

TURN…TURN…TURN!

A time to Listen with Mother…A time to watch The League of Gentlemen.
