But first a quote…

A while ago my daughter was reading this book (Thunderstorm Dancing) to her baby son and sent these words to me. She said they made her think of me! How sweet is that?

My Shout Out(s) this week go to….

1. My three beautiful daughters

They are all going through a lot at the moment and I’m so proud of how they are managing. Stay strong beautiful girls xx

2. Trent Dalton for writing the amazing All Our Shimmering Skies

All Our Shimmering Skies

I couldn’t put it down once I started it and gave it a resounding 5*.

I will make sure I feature it soon in a Friday Fiction post. Have you read it yet?

I also love the fact that Trent replied to my tweet and thanked me for my kind words – how sweet is that? It made my day 🙂

3. Becky’s KindaSquares

I’ve joined a new challenge this month with Becky and her Square community. It seems she runs a photo challenge every quarter with the main rule being the photos have to be square. Each time there’s a theme and this month, October, it’s Kind.

In Becky’s words from a recent post:

  1. Take a square photograph of something that reflects the theme
  2. Create your post for any day in October, and pingback to one of my daily squares
  3. Include the theme’s tag – KindaSquare
  4. Leave a comment on my post as well as your link
  5. Whether you post squares or not, be a kind member of the Square team and make time to visit others and the square galleries

It’s been quite fun choosing photos to share and trying to work out how to include the word Kind.

Here’s my photo for today – a cute cottage on a ‘one of a kind’ type of day.

I’ve made a start with a few posts and you can find them here: My Becky’s Square posts – my photos so far include – flowers, a tunnel shot and a beautiful Fijian sunset

It’s been fun to shoot in squares and share with a community of square bloggers – thanks for the opportunity to share Becky!

Are you keen to share something or leave a shout out to someone? I hope so – all you have to do is leave a comment or a link!

Has someone done something nice for you, have you witnessed a random act of kindness, have you read something interesting or watched a good movie lately?

Anything really – it’s up to you!

As always, feel free to share and get the word out there #ShoutoutSaturday

Thanks again for all your support, it’s much appreciated.

Deb 🙂

  1. In my diary, I write down three nice things that happened that day – it can be as simple as a perfect cup of tea or a sunny day, doesn’t have to be elaborate. I sometimes use these words as prompts for my Simple Pleasures post each Monday. I really love this idea of Shout out Saturday!

  2. Hi Deb, I can recommend a book I just finished, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. We watched the series on Amazon Prime starring Reese Witherspoon. How cool that Trent Dalton responded to your tweet! Have a great week,

    1. Hi Christina, I really enjoyed that book too! I’d love to see the series one day. It was really was nice of Trent to respond 🙂 Thanks for joining in for #ShoutoutSaturday


  3. Thank you for this opportunity to share a shout-out Deb. This week I would like to thank everyone who sent me so many warm wishes on my birthday. I couldn’t have felt more loved.

  4. Your “Granny” quote made me smile. I get it, Deb. I have many things that make me smile every day. Aside from my family, I have been reading a fascinating book “The language of butterflies” by Wendy Williams. I read it during the middle of the night when I can’t sleep (like many of us). It is an interesting book of insects, evolution and how everything is connected. Speaking about being connected, your daughters are gorgeous. I love all the smiles!

    1. Many thanks for your kind words Erica. It was interesting to note I woke in the middle of the night (I don’t do that very often) and read your comment then – very appropriate! That book on butterflies sounds delightful.

      Yes I agree my daughters are all gorgeous and I’m very proud of them all.
