who would have thought....!


I read somewhere that
every word we speak
every move we make
will have an effect

but

who would have thought
that two years ago
 a whispered aside

'I follow a blog!'
in a slightly embarrassed manner,

would lead me
to following
one blog
and then another
and another.

Would lead me to
step out and
start a blog

who would have thought
that that original whispered aside
would lead me down a track
that two and a half years later
would lead to a weekend
that I was not looking forward to
would lead to a
weekend of laughter
and love

Souk actually allowing the beautiful Kerry to hold her!!!!!!!!!

of too much wine....me!!
too much words for friends....not me!!!
(sorry inside joke!!!!)


who would have thought
that that whispered aside
would lead to me meeting
the beautiful Kerry
from a tranquil townhouse,

Thank you Kerry for giving me your time
on this weekend
that I was dreading
for making me laugh
for making me think
for reminding me that there is
still joy out there
because

tomorrow it is
one year

for Kerry
with love

  1. Ok, now you've made me cry. Again :) I can't begin to tell you my friend (and anyone else who's reading) how special that weekend was. Your wise counsel, your care and concern for me when you are suffering and bracing yourself for tomorrow, was such a gift to me. We laughed a lot didn't we!! And I take no responsibility for your alcohol consumption. And one day soon I will beat you at WWF. That's a promise! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. Take care and bless xx

    1. Sarah, we seemed to eat, laugh, talk (me!) and dare I say, drank (me!!) a lot!!!
      I might add the reference to drink is because I do not!!!! Kerry is indeed a deliciously wicked influence!!
      I loved every minute.
      Thank you for your continued care xx

  4. Blogging is a 'virtual'; community but a community all the same. Our lives are so enriched by getting to know others all over the world. Blessings to you, Jules~ xox, Vicki

    1. Vicki I used to be very sceptical of couples who met online but since I joined this community I can now understand how it happens! I have made some really beautiful friends and friends you are. You have been there through my ups and downs, you didn't desert me when I retreated to the safety of my pink chair you all came back so quickly (some were there all the way through!) and now with my new FB adventure you are al coming on board so willingly.
      So short answer is, yes this is a very enriching and wonderful community! xx

  6. Your experience with Kerry mirrors mine, over and over again. Last weekend in Ucluelet I spent a day with the blogging friend of a blogging friend and had a wonderful time. Life can be BIG or it can be narrow - and I choose BIG!

  7. Oh Jules, how wonderful! It sounds like just the medicine for you both. Having been lucky enough to meet Kerry I know the fun you must have had. She is an amazing woman and it looks like we all might be turning her towards the joys of spending time with pooches too!
    Sending you a hug today x

  15. Hello, I've just come from Kerry's blog. This was such a beautiful post. I have tears in my eyes because you have obviously found something incredible in your friendship with the Tranquil Townhouse owner. I'm so happy to see a photo of her smiling. How magical!

    Blogging ... who'd ever think it could lead to something like this? PS. I love your Afghan!

  17. Hello lovely Julienne, I'm so glad Kerry was there for you on this anniversary. She is wonderful. And I'm sorry I missed it. I have been out of touch with blogland unfortunately, dealing with my own little set of troubles. You still amaze me with the way you write, I just love it. I've borrowed some of your words, I hope you don't mind. (I reinstated the blog, by the way after realising what a silly decision it was..). Have a lovely week..Rachael xxx
