Well I have made an amazing discovery in this wonderful world that is blogland!
Some of you will recognise my avatar as a beautiful study of a baby by Lilian Rowles. I have had some of these prints for around 20 years and fell in love with them the minute I saw them. When I decided upon the name of Lalabibaby they seemed the obvious choice for an avatar. The name Lalabibaby is a take on lullaby mixed with the name that the children call my midwife daughter. Whe she was a student midwife she worked at the nursery that they went to before they started school and became my after school club. At the nursery they had to call the staff Miss or Mrs and they found it extremely difficult to stop addressing her so formally so we said call her Miss Lala and from then on it has stuck.
Anyhow, I digress (that's what happens with a meno brain!), yesterday I received a visit from a fellow blogger who had a wonderful story to tell .... I will say no more but please do take a visit to this lovely blog where all will become clear.
Isn't blogland a wonderful place .... I feel totally enriched by meeting such lovely people and in a way it is a modern day version of our old penpal letters only this time it is instantaneous and in full technicolour.
Thank you Julie xx
