Tavistock Market


One Saturday afternoon whilst browsing around my favourite markets in Tavistock i spotted this chair looking very out of place on an antique stall, drawn by the reddish/pink check ..me thinks that will go in any room at home ,so a deal was struck and the man delivered it to my home all in the price for £45 not a mega bargain but it was in fact brand spanking new[ it had been his granddaughters impulse buy]..but became mine instead !

Know your worth..! x x



God doesn't give you the people you want, He gives you the people you

NEED. To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you

into the person you were meant to be.
Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,

but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy

and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in

They stand up to injustice..

They don't take "no" for an answer

when they believe there is a better solution..

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel

and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about

a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member,

yet they are strong when they

think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss

can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you

to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what

makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.

They have compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their

family and friends.

Women have vital things to say

and everything to give..

HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,

IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.

Please pass this along to all your

women friends and relatives to remind them just

how amazing they are.
