I read this blog post today and it touched me so deeply that I decided to reblog it (something I rarely do).

Thanks, Mick 🙂
I second Mick’s comment, Ellie. I’ll be interested to read what Monique wrote, though. I’m heading over there now. 🙂
I’ve just read her post and left a comment. It was interesting to read what she had to say. I hope she — and I hope you — won’t give up blogging. 🙂
Thank you for being there to cheer my blog on, Bun, even though what I write may be a bit under-par sometimes x 🙂
Under-par? Not at all, Ellie. I always enjoy coming over to read your posts. I think Mick does too. 🙂
