Guest Post by Simone : The Journey of Friendship

posted on: Wednesday, 17 August 2011













the journey of a friendship.
we met via our blogs...and a friendship was born.
i believe i was her first commenter.
children of the same age. a boy and a girl.
i'm the city girl. she's the country girl.

sharing. talking. confiding.
coincidences-thoughts-hopes-likes-concerns.
we email. we facebook. and now we even text.
i'm think i've told her things even when i haven't. and vice versa.
she's part of my day even when we aren't in touch, i'm talking to her in my head.

there are things that she thinks she isn't. but she so is.
good things, so many of them. i think she's marvellous.
wise-graceful-clever-capable-thoughtful.

one of those friends that you know you need in your life.
you're grateful - so grateful - and happy that they are there.
thanks lovely girl.

have a wonderful holiday, hope it's all the things you want it to be.
read-swim-run-eat-rest. breathe.
see you in September xx


Thank you for such a fabulous guest post Simone and for bringing some 'Bottom of the Ironing Basket' love here. I have to admit, I felt more than honoured and touched to read this - thank you from the bottom of my heart (and ironing basket!)...and may I just say? Ditto! Likewise! The same!

Things of beauty...

Hello...happy Friday! Just time for some things of beauty, summer style.

I am guest posting at my lovely friend Simone's today - she posed some interesting questions for a range of bloggers to answer so you can see my considered (or not so considered) responses here on 'The Bottom of the Ironing Basket'.

Today brings some time to pack my bikini (oh and everyone elses everything) and get ready for the sun!
