But first a quote ….
My Shout Out(s) this week go to….
1. World Prematurity Day November 17
This is an advertisement made by Pampers all about having a premature baby in NICU/Special Care and says a lot.
I won’t lie, it made me shed a few tears!
My daughter wrote a lovely post on Facebook, about how she was feeling looking back on this time last year when Dottie was still in hospital, but preparing to come home. So much was ahead of them all, given Dottie had arrived at just 25 weeks gestation.
It was very fitting that we arrived into England on World Prematurity Day last year – it was the first time the Mathematician met Dottie and we were able to spend a few months getting to know Dottie and helping out.
Shout out to all the parents, friends and family members who have been down this particular road and support each other in any way they can.
2. Forage – Merchant + Occasions
A new business has opened up in town and it is a little beauty!
Dez runs a lovely little place, located in an old former church, selling flowers, soaps, garlands, nature inspired bits and pieces, old wares, fashion items, and timeless designs. It is a real pleasure to pop in and have a look around, and even the Mathematician enjoyed having a squizz this week!
So if you’re in Tumbarumba to visit friend or family, work, ride the rail trail, or just passing through – take a moment to stop in and say hi to Dez! Tell her Deb sent you 🙂
Shout out to Dez for all her hard work! She has great plans for the future so we can’t wait to watch and see what happens next.
If you can’t get to visit Dez in Tumba, you can follow along on Instagram @foragemerchantoccasions
3. My friend the Artist and the Art of Learning
A huge Shout Out to my friend and former work colleague, Daragh, for her first ever solo art exhibition at Artists on Parade. The exhibition is all about her journey with learning and as a celebration of her overcoming the fear and self-doubt that has plagued her for many years. The exhibition is aptly titled ‘Art of Learning’.
Daragh has been an educator for many years and I worked with her in a challenging correctional centre environment where she taught literacy to male inmates. She was always creative in her lessons which helped draw the men out and involve them more in their learning. It was a challenge at times!
I was amazed with the variety in her artworks on display in the exhibition – landscapes, portraiture, macro fruit, leaves, flowers, birds, animals – all done in a range of mediums. She is very talented and I’m proud of her!
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.
