    Hello it’s Tuesday here in New Zealand. I love your hello Mondays too, they always make me smile. Oh that chair is heavenly, love that shade of blue.
    What I’m saying hello to this Tuesday is a husband who doesn’t remember what we have discussed and decided and does his own thing anyway. Yes I’m facing FRUSTRATION! LOLOL, deep sigh. Then when I say what we decided, I get the ”I don’t remember saying that” thing…. guess that’s what you get when your hubby is 12 years older than you! Bless his heart, but I don’t like being told to ”shut up”. Grrrrrrr…. Lisa honey thank you so much! for your inspirational Mondays on your side of the world, they never fail to cheer me up! Hugs
