This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

Today I finished 'The Forgotten Garden' - what a fabulous story. Normally I don't go for books that jump from one time to another (eg 2005 to 1900) but this one was written like you were actually there following the one character and the continuation of it all ... I was so impressed that I actually emailed the author and told her so. I have never done this before .. ... An exquisite book, perfect for re-cuperating. At this rate I'm reading a book a week, plus various magazines and some stitching. Reminds me, I'll have to get into my assignments soon. Am doing a cookery course which I'm missing out on for a couple of months.
A photo of the beach at sunset ... just there at the right time. Can't wait for those summer nights ... not long now.

I wasn't sure if Dzintra was your first name - so lovely and unusual. I was just going to call you Your Royal Highness instead! Such warm feelings here at your blog. Austrailia looks beautiful...those beaches, wow! You are certainly an ambitious cook. Your menu sounded delicious. I hope you are feeling better. I finally have my Halloween costume posted if you want to take a look. It's very exciting to be talking to someone across the planet. I will visit again. Keep cooking!

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
