One of the best things about blogging is how it connects us to others. I am endlessly fascinated by bloggers who live in different countries so when Tots100 joined up with Digital Parents in Australia for a blog swap I thought it would be fun to join in. I am pleased to introduce this post written by Daneyl from The Strands Of Me. I love the name of her blog, reminds me of this old post of mine!
Hi, from the Land Down Under!
I’m Daneyl and the owner of a little piece of internet called The Strands Of Me. Joining in with International Blog Swap Day (erm, a week or so ago….), I’ve pop’d over to Kelly’s gorgeous little blog to say G’day and let you know about me, my blog and life in Australia.
Thought I’d begin with a little about me and my family. I’ve just turned 30 and live with my Hubby and our two young kids – Noah who’s 4 and Phoenix was 2 last December – in a small mining town in Queensland, Australia. I’ve grown to love the community and friendships I’ve created in this town, even though it’s population is a mere 5000 people (not including the Fly In Fly Out mine workers). I work part time at the local Community Radio Station as well as being an Independent Thermomix Consultant. Working the two jobs and looking after two kids is full on!
I’m very passionate about food, with a far off dream to one day own a little café where I can cook healthy yet delicious meals. I love to share the good recipes on my blog, but I have a lot of duds!! Good thing Hubby likes to tell me what’s good and what’s not!
I love practicing gratitude and try to write a ‘What I’m Grateful For’ post every Sunday. As Kelly has written a beautiful gratitude post for my blog, I thought I would do the same. Today I’m grateful for…
…my loving Hubby, who made my recent birthday not-so-scary. Without him, I’d be a little lost.
…my parents, who just moved around the corner. Oh it’s so nice to have family close again! (And to be able to just call Dad when my sink floods the kitchen…)
…sunshine. We get a lot of it where I live and for the majority of the year, it’s very very very hot. Now that the weather is cooling down, the sunshine isn’t as harsh and more welcome.
…food. How it brings together the people you love.
…my children. Without them, I’d have never learned real patience….
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading a little about me, feel free to pop over to my blog and say hi!
