I Have Learned

Spread the love

I have a feeling we are going to be repeating loads of stuff this year, or maybe my gramophone is stuck and needs a slap on the side to jump over the “repeat”. Maybe, and who knows, we are to have repeats of some stuff until we actually SEE, HEAR and understand. Until, then… we repeat…. 😊

I have learned many other lessons, some mastered, some not. Many a work in progress.
