Welcome to Shout Out Saturday
What’s it all about?
Shout Out Saturday is where I invite you to join in by leaving a link or a comment to something that has had an impact on you recently:
You can leave a link to your own blog, or maybe something you’ve read on someone else’s blog, or tell us about your favourite blogger, or simply share some good news, or even just drop in to say hello….
- no strings attached
- simply leave a comment below
- check out any other links if you want to
- use the hashtag #ShoutoutSaturday on social media
- no need to get caught up in too much compulsory sharing
- keep it family friendly
- Saturday can cover any day of the week
But first a quote…
This quote was taken from a recent Wilosophy podcast with Clare Bowditch (part 2), and the whole episode was fabulous but this quote and the discussion around it has stayed with me.
My Shout Out(s) this week go to….
1. My family
Family time – getting together can’t be underestimated
We are lucky to be able to spend a few days with two of our daughters, their husbands and two and a half grandchildren. Cousins meeting each other and sisters having time to chat. Lots of cuddles and playtime for Papa G and Granny Debs!
We miss our eldest daughter, Melanie, Craig and granddaughter Dottie as they live in England, but we’re staying in touch via technology, which is all we can do at the moment given the current situation.
2. Tim Moss and his self-portraits during lockdown in Melbourne
I will declare that Tim is my brother-in-law and is a very clever man – not only because he married my sister!
During the past few weeks/months he has been taking self-portraits while in lockdown in Melbourne. I think it’s fair to say he’s been having fun and showing his creative side! It’s always fun to see what he’s come up with and each day they provide an interesting insight into his daily life. Melbourne has been in strict lockdown for months now.
His latest post #41 can be found here https://timothy-moss.com/2020/10/23/self-portrait-41/ and I’d recommend you go back and check out some of his previous days too.
3. Walk for Prems on Grandparents Day
As mentioned before, in Shoutout Saturday #5, this Sunday 25 October, is the annual fundraiser Walk for Prems, for Life’s Little Treasures Foundation. I have been riding my bike during October and so far I’m up to about 250kms.
One walk. A thousand locations. For the past 11 years, families, friends and supporters have come together to walk, connect and celebrate, whilst raising money and awareness for premature and sick babies.
Sunday 25 October is also Grandparents Day, and I can think of no better way to celebrate than spending the day with my grandchildren and helping to raise money for a great cause which has helped our family in the past.

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.
