Follow Friday 40 & Over

Hosted by the lovely Java
This weeks Special Blog is
Blooming Lovely
I thought I would head down under for this week to the lovely           Jo-anne. This is what she says about herself. 

I live in country Victoria, Australia but I was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. I am currently a Carer and a Stay At Home Mum.
I have two extremely annoying delightful young men who drive me absolutely balmy at times. My oldest is 17 (he has Aspergers Syndrome & ADHD plus a few other challenges thrown into the mix) and my youngest is 14 (he too has ADHD).
I am a carer for my partner in crime & best friend, Mark. Mark has Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and some other things I wont bore you with.
You can probably guess that it can get exciting around here at times. It certainly keeps me on my toes. All in all I wouldn’t change a thing. Well maybe I would.
Jo-annes blog is full of her every day challenges as well as some of her creations (crochet flowers)


  1. I follow Joanne. She is very down to earth, and I love how she shares because it can make you feel like you're not alone in your own challenges. She is a very courageous lady.

  2. I fixed the linky for you!!!

    I follow Joanne as her...just like I love you!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi there! Thanks for your visit and comment tonight. I love getting to know other bloggers. Java sure makes it fun and easy with her blog hop, doesn't she? I hope you'll drop by again. I've enjoyed my visit here.


  4. Hi Rumtruffle!
    Just hopping by to catch up on missed posts. I have been stuck inside with Hubby painting and spring cleaning even though it's foggy outside :( I've managed to grab an hour to indulge in my favourite pastime and so I'm off to read some of your older posts I've not seen. I shall certainly bob off and visit Blooming Lovely. She seems great. I have a similar feature to you where I showcase a blog each week. I think it's nice to share the 'bloggy love'.
    Right! It's time for a read. Have a super weekend.

  5. I love Jo-anne's blog! I'm already and follower...and by the way, her new crocheted flowers are the cutest!! :-)

  6. I'll have to go check out Jo-anne's blog. Always good to find another Aussie girl out there :-)
