Mollie the wonder dog.......

Here she is, she has travelled 3,800 miles to get here from the state of Michigan, USA.
We got Mollie from a Border Collie rescue society via some English friends we met whilst living in Ann Arbor. I was told by hubby 'no dog' so i got one..... one of the best things about the 3yrs we were there. Mollie kept me from being lonely and through her we made and met some great friends. She loves being in England, seems to prefer it to the States, probably due to the weather... though she does miss jumping up and down in the snow, lovely crisp staying stuff, feet deep! Of course it cost us a goodly sum to bring her with us but she was worth every penny... love her to bits, she is such fun, is a clock watcher and justs wants lots of love 24/7, 365 days a year but who doesnt. Ciao

I thought this blogging stuff was supposed to be easy! I dont think so! Anyway I'm here, got a fantastic header which is so theatrical and so me..... I LURVE it. Its from a cool site, if you look on my header you will see the button to the site. Throughly recommend it. I'm so excited, I'm shaking all over (there's a lot to shake)... still cant believe I've done it.

It was a great learning curve helped along by my computer savvy (he says) hubby and my gorgeous Collie dog, Mollie, giving us (me) her help by interrupting every now and then for a stroke! Cant ignore Mollie!

I'm now going to have a cup of hot, earl grey tea (al la Captain Jean Luc Picard) and calm down...which I find impossible when so excited. You can see I dont have much in my life, so sad. Ciao

New Beginnings

Well here we go, off on another adventure. I've been wanting to start a blog for sometime but not had the courage... but if you don't take a leap of faith you will never know. So here we are.
This is the dictionary definition of Paraphernalia:
formerly, property other than dower that remained under a married woman's own control especially articles of jewellery, dress, personal belonging.
I that how very apt.
I hope that my blog will be fun, interesting, informative and anything else that takes my fancy.....
