The fabulous Kerri Sackville is running a blogging challenge involving a #MyFirst theme each week.  This week is #MyFirst…Bestie and as I have been meaning for a long time to tell the story behind my nickname, I am joining in! In late 1963/early 1964 two neighbours in a western suburb […]

365 Grateful – Day 194

I had a fabulous day today.  This afternoon I went to my friend Denise’s new house for the first time and then we went out for lunch.  I got to meet her two dogs (Keala and Ellie) and Coco who she is doggy sitting while her owner is […]
