Small World

Isn't funny how somethings just jump out at us and prove just how small this world really is. When I first started writing my blog back in February 2009, I was writing just for me and didn't really think that anyone would really follow what I was saying. I had a couple of friends commenting and then one day I had a comment and follower that I didn't know. I was so thrilled to think that someone who didn't know me was taking the time to comment. This person was Darlene from Canada and she had also recently started her blog My Life for a Year. Since then we have connected via our blogs, through Facebook and emails. We have even sent each other gifts. Well yesterday it was my absolute pleasure to finally meet my friend Darlene. She is currently in Australia and staying with her friend Debbie in Ballarat. Between Debbie and I  we surprised Darlene with a visit to Daylesford. The three of us spent a lovely afternoon eating, talking and enjoying great company.  Thank you Darlene and Debbie for a great day and I am privileged to call you both my friends.
Darlene and Davine


  1. Hi Davine. Thanks for dropping by today, it was good to hear from you.
    I often wonder which blogger friend I will meet, if ever. How nice that this happened with you and Darlene. This is one of the great things about blogging....meeting different people and possibly really meeting them some day!

  2. Your welcome Jim. Yes it was pretty cool actually meeting Darlene.

  3. Davine, I am so excited by your post - Darlene is flying up to spend a few days with me in Brisbane. Like you, I was priveleged to meet Darlene through her blog and you through yours. It is an amazingly small world.

  4. How fun is THAT!!! So glad you all got to meet in person.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. Hi Beverly - You will really enjoy Darlenes company, exciting isn't it?
    Joanna - I guess thats what our life is all about - Having Fun.

  6. Davine, honestly the pleasure was all mine! Beverly is an absolute gem, just like you are. The two of you must meet one day, if you haven't already, I'm sure you would soon become fast friends!

    I hope the birthday party went stunningly well, I'm looking forward to photos! :-)

    Again it was a real pleasure and joy to meet you, I sure hope our paths cross again one day!

  7. Darlene - No Beverly and I haven't met as yet. I am also sure our paths will cross again some day. Enjoy your last little while in Australia before you head back to Canada.


I would love to hear your comments.
