Hettie’s Tea-Tails and letting go!!!

Take a Compliment – Just Damn Well Take It!

Tomorrow, the 24th January is National Compliments Day – sounds fun doesn’t it… a day where we celebrate sincerely saying lovely things to people, I think we should extend it to an entire year!!!!!   The giving of the compliment is however, I believe, the easy part of the deal…. it is the receiving where I […]
