My little bit of this big World

Friday, 8 November 2019


I started this blog in February 2009, just a few words, not sure if it was for me, but I loved it, I read some beautiful blogs with different lifestyles, same hobbies, similar ages and younger. Each morning I sit at my computer with a mug of coffee, reading and commenting. It's a joyful way to start my day. 
Blogger has made changes again, this time I think for the better, for a few years they only showed your last 1000 comments, I lost the viewing of any comments before this number, now they have gone back to displaying all comments on my blog, and perfect timing, this week I had my 8000th comment, and so I'm sending a parcel to the following blogger.
 Maggie can you please send your name and address, my email address is marlenejjones@gmail.com,
I will over the weekend pop something into the post. 
 Yesterday (another Beatles song), I had the words of the song below running through my mind, yes I arrived at my 64th birthday, I got stuck on the line, many years from now, how quickly the years have passed. I would not change much in my life. I had a great day out with hubby and youngest daughter, Will was at nursery, he popped in on Wednesday with my card. We had a quiet evening in, sharing a bottle of wine, on Saturday night we will go out for a meal together, simple pleasures. 
 I will leave you with another photo of this plant as the buds get bigger they become brighter pink.


  1. Happy belated birthday, I'm glad you had a lovely day, and congratulations on your blog milestone too.
