My little bit of this big World

In the post

A very dear lady called Karen sent me an email a while ago, we have chatted a few times, she is not a blogger but loves reading blogs, she sent to me a small parcel, I'm a lucky person.
Home made lavender bag with home grown lavender from her garden, and the most beautiful cat fabric bag, a home knitted cloth and the most perfect soap purchased from Lanzarote, it's such a shame you can't smell these items, and a beautiful hand made card. The lavender bag is in our big wardrobe, and the soap is in our upstairs bathroom, so many beautiful scents.  

I have had more emails from blogger, they have reviewed my 6 post, and have reinstated each one, I had not contacted them, so it was a surprise to me. I have no idea why or who started this chain of events, and sadly no way of knowing. I have no objections to the policing of online media, I always embrace it, but details of any decisions would be nice. Comments received on my last post are saying they have seen this before, it does not stop me wondering what their criteria is. 
My mammogram went well, I walked up to arrive just on my appointment time, they were happy to see me, even with my cough (which is getting better), they were pleased I got the test before coming, the lorry coming into our community is a brilliant scheme, parking at our local hospital is always difficult to find spaces and oh so expensive. 

The rain has been non stop, it's pouring down as I write this post, very good for the garden, as I was planting out last week, I did notice the ground below was still dry, I flattened all the leaves from the daffs and bluebells, I then added loads dried chicken poo and farmyard manure and after planting some bark I had left over from the front garden, the whole side garden should do well this year. 

Yesterday I did some more stitching, I am very close to finishing my big project, I will post photo's once completed. I also sat and read for the evening, nothing we wanted to watch on TV, our Alexa is set to play music we love, last night I listened to George Michael , followed by 80's music. 


  1. How lovely to get such a wonderful gift in the post, I've met such generous people through blogging. I read another post yesterday about posts being deleted. It seems the posts they'd had deleted were ones which spam had been posted on so they'd marked the email as spam rather than just delete it, perhaps you'd done the same thing? Or perhaps it's nothing to do with that at all, who knows. Glad the mammogram went well.

    1. I read all my comments before posting and delete any spam, 4 of the post were my sewing post, and 2 about the garden. The only connection to each was I used links to sites and older post. I can't see any reason, other than they automatically take a batch to check and reinstate after manually checking!

  2. I've seen a couple of other bloggers saying the same thing has happened to them, perhaps Blogger is having an issue and it may actually be nothing wrong with any of your posts. Nothing to worry about, I don't think. What lovely gifts!

  3. I'm pleased your cough is getting better. Mammograms are a necessary evil aren't they, justcwhen you think it cant be squeezed anymore, it doesπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. What a thoughtful present, lucky you.

  4. What a wonderful gift you had, Marlene, kindness lifts the spirits doesn't it. Hope your cough is getting better now. That's a weird thing for blogger to do as your posts are never controversial at all. I find it all very baffling at times πŸ€”

  5. Glad your post got put back up, would have been nice to know a reason for deleting them in the first place though. What a thoughtful gift, I love lavender bags and have them dotted around in my yarn store and drawers. We've had rain for most of the day, it did turn to sleet this afternoon and we had thunder too, strange weather we are having.

  6. I just read about your post being deleted, I’d be furious if that happened to me. When you consider all the stupid, offensive and dangerous stuff that
    goes online you’d think they’d have better things to do with their time, I don’t recall you being in any of those categories,

  7. That's a lovely parcel to receive in the post :)

    All the best Jan
