Happy Friday! Again, yet another week has passed and I still haven’t found the secret to stopping the clocks so that I remain the child I am at heart. One day I’m going to crack that secret and I’ll share it with you, so you can all stay young along with me. I’m pretty sure the world would be able to handle it. (although mind … there are a small handful of us who the world might just struggle with … lol)
Well … I hope you have your Chuckle Muscle in good shape, for this is the required item you’ll need for this weeks Friday Post.
It’s the Summer, and people are looking to sort out their houses and get rid of things they’re no longer using, by putting an advert in a newspaper in order to sell those things. Or some folks have a business which they are looking to promote and add a few pennies to the holiday fund.
All this is leading me to sharing some of those folks adverts with you. Are you ready with your chuckle muscle? Sure? Ok … let’s go . . .

Well that’s me done and dusted for another ‘Friday Post’.
All that’s left for me to say is … have a truly blessed rest of your day, and I hope your weekend is peace filled and leaves you feeling contented. And, finally, … remember to be a little kinder than you might think necessary. Each one of us is fighting our own battle. I may not see your battle, and you don’t know what mine is, but I’d like people to be kind to me in the same way I’m kind to them. So … be a little kinder to all that you meet and interact with this weekend. Who knows . . . your kindness could just be the thing which enables someone to carry on carrying on.
Sending my love and a bucket full of squidges ~
