A family of bloggers

Melanie

Blog of the Day: Deb’s World

Great to read Suzie’s comments about my blog in her Blog of the Day post! She has managed to sum up my blog in just a few paragraphs and I appreciate her support and encouragement:
I love everything about Debbie’s blog – the layout, the photographs, the topics… there is so much that I can personally relate to and I love her honesty and openness about her life experiences and things that she enjoys. In particular, I’m very jealous of the images that she shares of the places that she has seen – I’ve certainly added a few places to my bucket list because of her post.
And yet, for someone so talented, she is incredibly modest and a lovely person – she’s been an integral part of my Facebook group since it began and her comments and support of others have been instrumental in it’s growth.
Thanks again Suzie 🙂

Why you should take your phone with you EVERYWHERE!

Morning

Why you should take your phone with you everywhere. This is a cautionary and true story. Over the weekend I had a strangely familiar sensation. I was locked in. Again. In December 2014 I found myself locked in a stairwell in a shopping centre at 4 am and it was not fun!  Luckily I had …
