I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue to have coffee...sip a glass of a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

I can't believe this...
2 Vales in a row

On Monday I was told by one of JoJo's Careworkers that Louella had passed away last week
Louella has played a huge part in our lives (since we made our Sea Change) as a Respite Care Co-ordinator for us

She was extremely helpful to us when I broke my arm
and helped us out with meals and much assistance in other ways while Mr Armchair was run off his feet caring for me and then JoJo
She went over and above to assist us how she could

Louella was one of our first points of contact here with services and she always made sure everything was just right and that we were happy

Thank you so much dear Louella for all your kindness and assistance
We will miss you........Dzintra and family xoxoxo

My precious friend,

I am sorry that you have had to bear two losses in such a short amount of time; I know what that is all about, having lost my parents two weeks apart.

The kindness never leaves us, never. Be well, embrace all the goodness around you. Blessings of love to you sweet Dzintra, and to JoJo too! Anita

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 ...
