A Big Thank you - two wonderful friends..........Rosa and Lucy

How blessed I am to have wonderful friends,
not just in the UK
all over the world!!
Yesterday I had two surprises
in the post...
My first huge surprise came from my
lovely friend Rosa (Scintilla) who spends her
time between

A fabulous book and postcard...
I was amazed and very happy.

Rosa knows I have a love for Italy,
so this is such a wonderful gift.

Her blog Bell'Avventura is full
of wonderful photos of Positano
and the Amalfi Coast.

Not just photos, but lots to read too!

I love reading and seeing the beautiful sights
of any part of Italy, but especially Positiano!!

Go on .. have a look, you will not be disappointed,
you will want to book a trip!

Rosa and I have been following each others blogs
for quite a while, also connected through Facebook
and are really good friends.

Even though we have never met.
I hope we do one day.

The second was from my great friend
Lucy from Pickering, Ontario.
Lucy and I have never met either,
but connect through blogging and Facebook
and have spoken on the phone.
Such a shame I never got to
see her on my trip to Montreal,
too far away for my short trip.

A beautiful card of Algonquin Park, Ontario.

Lucy has a wonderful blog,

On my way 2 work and Other Stuff,

with fantastic photos of Sunrises/Sunsets,

places of interest, her family and lots more!

I hope you get a chance to visit her too!

Big Thank you to you both ♥♥

    The postcard of Ontario's Algonquin Provincial Park reminds me of the Canada trip I will *not* be taking this year... :( Alas, there is always next year. I hope we'll be able to go back to Canada then! It's so pretty there.
