The Grand Taiwanese Buffet.

Yesterday, Hubby and I were invited to his Mum’s-cousin’s-house for dinner. We arrived at six, to a grand feast laid on the table and ten hungry Taiwanese relatives waiting to be fed.

Getting rid of 100 things

 I did Yoga this week, from a Yoga with Adrienne video about “Making Space”. After a bad night’s sleep I wanted to make space in my head and stretch out my body.
