Happy International Women's Day - Thank The Women In Your Life

Another Monday, another blog post!  Welcome to this week's special instalment of "Blog Post Monday".

Whilst sitting down with a brew this week, those Yorkshire tea leaves struck a chord in my brain.  I realised that my life is full, and I mean full, of so many strong, amazing women.  I have far more women in my life than I do men.  And looking back through my life, it's safe to say that it's these strong women who have influenced my path and helped me become the person I am today.

So, with it being International Women's Day today, I thought, what better way to celebrate this than to write about some of the amazing women in my life.  And, I encourage you all to do the same.  Take a moment to think about the women in your life who have had a positive impact on you and why not share those stories.

I'll start by saying a massive thank you to my gang of women.  Thank you for being a positive influence on my life and for your continued love, support and encouragement.  I salute you all!

My Antique Highlights Of 2020 - Happy New Year

Happy New Year one and all!  I hope you all had the very best possible Christmases you could have, given the circumstances.  Most importantly, I hope you all stayed safe and got all the antiques you wished for! 

Welcome back to 'Blog Post Monday', my first post of 2021.  I'm feeling a bit rusty, so I'm going to break myself in gently this year.  With every New Year comes a clean slate, a chance to set yourself some ridiculous goals for the coming year and an opportunity to look back on the year just gone... 

With that in mind, this week's blog post is dedicated to my top memories of 2020 and to the challenges I'll be setting myself for 2021.  So, for the first time this year, get that kettle on, kick back and let me take you back to 2020 (sorry!!)...!
