Three is a Magic Number

I can’t believe it’s been three years since my first blog post. In a way, it feels like a lifetime ago and yet only yesterday. I've met some amazing bloggers and friends along the way and am truly indebted to everyone who takes the time to visit.


I didn't expect to get many visitors so to see the StatCounter moving towards 500,000 views is nothing short of magical. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, without you, there would be nothing but a blank page!

    1. Dear Maria, thank you for your lovely words. Your visits always brighten my day.
      Yes, the decorating is done – yippee! Now I just need to move several layers of dust! Oh dear your scaffolding has been up for quite a while. Is the roof being repaired or does it need replacing?

  2. HAPPY THREE YEARS, BARBARA! YAY!!!!!!! When I think that this is my sixth year, it just doesn't seem possible. So many dear people have graced my empty page, and there are some very special friendships. Your blog is a happy place to run to and flip through the pages of my childhood, with a dear friend behind the scenes....you.

    I so adore that book cover with the sweet pups....happy Friday! Anita

  8. Good morning dear friend! Thank you for your kind comment and may you continue to share what is in your heart with us. That is what writing and creativity is all about: THE HEART.

    Oh what a lovely Saturday it is....and if you have a moment, come to Nowhere. One of your country's cutest adverts inspired me and made me chuckle so hard! XOXOXO

  13. BARBARA! You came to Nowhere! teeeeheee..aren't those hamsters a brilliant advert? Rattus did NOT like having to take over Tea Rat's responsibility of general manager of theatrical productions in Nowhere. Rattus would rather stay in his office and write. But Tea Rat always finds a way to get him out of his shell.

    Have a fantastic Mother's Day my friend, thank you for visiting. Anita
