After i came home from my lovely day out feeling emotionally refreshed. I thought about all those poor people in Japan who also had a lovely country , but is now devastated by earthquake, floods and fire.
and also other countries like Afghanistan and Libya where their countries are being torn apart by war.
My heart goes out to two dear friends whose son has just gone out for a tour of Afghanistan.
How lucky i am to live in England !
