Our most basic common link...


"Our most basic common link
is that we all inhabit this small planet.
We all breathe the same air.
We all cherish our children.
And we are all mortal”

Thinking about you..


"If I had a single flower for every time I think about you... I could walk forever in my garden."
Claudia Ghandi

To my beautiful brother
It's been 2 years since we lost you...
You are in my thoughts every day.
I will miss you and love you always
& Forever.

Doing a little happy dance...







































Blogging has been rather neglected of late in my corner of the world. I have been adding posts when I get the chance, but not managing to visit my blogging friends much. Firstly I have a friend who has given me the first 30 episodes or so of 30 Rock and I hold her (at least in part) responsible...

I used to get into work early and do my catch up blogging - posting, reading and commenting - before the beginning of the work day, but that hasn't happened for ages (in fact rarely since my role at work has changed)

I do try and visit my regulars regularly(!!), though I generally have so much catching up to do, it usually means I need quite a bit of time to catch up on all the comings and goings, and often I get interrupted before I have the chance to finish or leave comments.

Daily I scan my blog list down the side of my blog and select one or two and that's about it.

This morning one update in particular caught my eye, as it referred to a Thanksgiving giveaway that I had entered over at Flossy-P's blog (a long time blogging fave, and stunning artist) and so I decided to head on over and take a look at who was the lucky winner.

I watched as the random selector, bounced balls through a labyrinth and my name stayed in the running. As we neared the end and I was sitting in 4th position, I was giving a little sigh, believing I would have to wait another year... and then... and then... I bounced my way to victory, somehow passing the other runners and jostling into first place!

I seriously did a little happy dance right there in the middle of the office!

Woo hoo!
Flossy-P, you made my day. I am totally excited to have won one of your prints! You truly have bought a bright ray of sunshine to an otherwise rainy day!

Only problem is, I have been to the Flossy-P Etsy shop, and taken a look at her gorgeous portfolio... and I like so many of her illustrations, I really don't know what to choose! I've managed to narrow it down to three so far...

Go take a look people, you will totally understand my dilemma.
