"Hi Everyone ,


This week is National left handed day, as a left hander I can now celebrate and have a cuppa in my left handed cup lol.


Also today In 1926 Gertrude Caroline Ederie was the first woman to swim the English Channel.

If you had a yearning to try something new what would it be? Go on the forum if you have an answer you'd like to share, it would be great to see some comments.


Thanks everyone :)

Corinne"
