We’ve had a lucky spate of guests today. So lucky, I’m writing post 12am.
You know it’s been a good day, when you don’t get a chance to sit down and write until it’s 12:44am.

I love being with great people. Surround yourself with those you love, who inspire you, who you want to be like, and who are doing the things you want to do. Just that act in itself, is a gratifying one on its own.
You’re fortunate when you have a handful of great people in your life who you can call your true friends. I was pretty lucky today, in that a good number of them came to see us. I’m going to sleep, a very content lady. ‘Night.
