For the past 42 weeks Bev has been doing a Makes Me Happy Monday post. Bev’s blog is always a cheerful place to visit and a great pick-me-up on Mondays. Today she is handing out awards.
So now I have to pass it on to other Versatile Bloggers. No number was mentioned so I’m going to choose just one. I’ve been thinking for some time I should tell you all about Jessie.
When my youngest daughter was 15 she went to Australia, to Murwillumbah in northern New South Wales as an exchange student. She made so many wonderful friends and has kept in touch with a number of them for the past 14 years. Jessie was one of these friends. She and a neighbour from a nearby property visited Justine in Auckland a few months ago and after she’d gone back, Justine told me about Jessie’s blog. The trip had been their reward to themselves for surviving five weeks or so on their properties, isolated by flood waters.
I’ve been an avid follower of Jessie since my first visit to her blog. She tells of life in the Australian bush, married to a farmer, mother of three young children, Secondary School English teacher. This girl knows how to write! Her posts are always interesting – and always honest and humorous.
So, Jessie, this is my tribute to you. Your blog is refreshingly delightful. I love your writing. Keep it up!
I encourage you to pop over to The Farmer Has a Wife and say Gidday to her.
