Reasons to be cheerful? I can think of at least three.
1. Look at the lovely daffodils in my garden. This year they survived a covering of snow. But now spring is here!
2. I’ve passed my tenth speech, the one they call the Masterpiece at my speakers club, which means I qualify for the ASC Certificate of Achievement. I spoke about the suffragettes, particularly Leonora Cohen, a Leeds suffragette. I’ve been enjoying learning about this fascinating piece of history from a book called Rebel Girls by Jill Liddington, which is about Yorkshire suffragettes.
3. And last but not least… Ian was a Morrison’s scratch card winner. His prize? Four iced doughnuts!
