A Dress for Summer

I used to make a point of sewing a dress each summer.  It was something I enjoyed doing and this was many many years ago.  I learnt to sewq by helping my Mum and did sewing lessons at school and at a Singer Sewing Club.  One thing I struggled with is putting on the zip.  However there was a great satisfaction when I achieved it.  Then I got crafty and chose patterns that didn’t need a zip!

A jolt, a song and a Birthday breakfast.

Jolt

I felt the jolt, as I was in deep sleep I thought it was a dream.  Then came another and another, so it wasn’t a dream after all.  I distinctively heard children’s voices singing “Happy Birthday to you Mum, Happy Birthday to you Mum ” and they added their own verse, “Wake up and eat your breakfast”.  At this point I started yawning and stretching, with the aroma of a delicious English Breakfast and the children’s happy faces, I didn’t need any convincing.  I thanked, hugged and kissed each of them and winked at my husband who had supervised their morning endeavours.

Oops something has gone right- An amazing 1st year with WordPress

It has truly been an amazing year of writing, blogging, having fun, sharing, entertaining and making new friends.  I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well.  Just before I retired I had an episode of ill health, the only way forward was to get strengthened in Christ, get good nutrition and exercise going for total recovery and make each day special.  I wasn’t doing much in way of writing and from feedback of what i wrote was I needed to improve.  Then I found WordPress, a platform that gave me a boost of energy to further develop myself and the things I want to do.  I owe a lot to sharing with you and learning from you, I have written more, got involved in more activities and initiated my personal projects to fruition than I ever did.  I am glad I am able to write this without my laptop going, “Oops, something has gone wrong.” because of storage problems   I have been trying to catch up with liking and commenting on your blog posts, on writing the Daily Prompt and by God’s Grace one day hope to bring back ‘Top of the Elevenses/Brunch’.

Thanks to you all, from my first Follower to the most recent one, to all at Admin and Blogging Fundamentals, to Mr Ngobesing Romanus and all at Success Inspirers’ World, Viewers and Readers.  There are so many names to mention and I don’t want to miss any, so just believe I send you my love and thanks too.

Blessings of Palm Sunday to you all, His love is for everyone of us because we are all SPECIAL.
