I was perusing (as one does) around my site and fixing up a few things (mainly getting rid of those stupid little blue boxes with the ? in them) which means my photos and some awards have again disappeared of my posts.
I looked up and low and behold the number of visitors was
Trumpets blaring, drums a thumping – now I realise to some fellow blog personel this may be a small and possibly insignificant number, but to moi who started at the end of July (hell has it been THAT long?) I feel it nothing short of a miracle that so many of you (virtual though you may be) have popped in.
We all want a little pat on the back now and then and though I started this as a release for my writing passion, I have also made friends along the way and I am grateful for that.
So I wish to say THANK YOU for caring, sharing your comments and being so supportive of a woman who lives down under who just loves to write.
From the cradle to the empty nest. I passed through that journey myself so I understand the emotional roller coaster ride that this author takes you through. I think all daughters and daughters-in-law should read it – O, yes the boys too. I am the mother of two boys! There are tears and laughter, joys and sorrows in this very honest tale and it helps us to understand how we can support each other as mothers as we go through life together. Shirley Chalmers
Shirley is one the blogs that I follow – so thank you Shirley 🙂
Despite not having any children, I really enjoyed this book. It was funny, light and easy to relate to. Being one of 3 daughters, it has helped put some things in perspective and understand why my mum does/says the things she does! Will definitely be recommending this to all the mums I know!

I know, what you’re thinking for ‘gawds’ sake woman enough already it’s late in Australia go to bed….. HOWEVER as this is my 50th post I would like to HONESTLY say THANK – YOU to each and every one of you for taking the time to catch a ‘tag’ to investigate, to read, to like, to follow and to comment. I appreciate that I have followers (quite surprised in fact). When I started blogging in July I had 21 views, August I had 117, September and I have had 542!!! OK so I’m excited and the month isn’t over yet. Seriously (which is hard for me at this juncture as yes it is late and I go a little crazy when the moon is out) I do thank you – all of you and I hope that you have laughed, shed a ‘good’ tear or just simply enjoyed my ramblings from a mum. Hopefully I can continue and you will still enjoy..
