Today my parade is basking in sunlight and is entirely rainproof, as I can finally say hello to the new and improved,, fresh from the surgeons table, because even the virtual among us need a little facelift once in a while…

To celebrate, here’s a little story from my ‘About Me’ page…



I was five. I could still taste the saccharine sweet remnants of chocolate on my tongue. My mouth was smeared with cocoa crumbs and icing. My parents walked in, mouths wide open.

“Laura! Did you take a bite of grandma’s birthday cake?”


And so the storytelling began…

    As you get older the need to stand out from the crowd becomes more important, possibly urgent. Less so as a besmeared five year old.

    Nice facelift, by the way. Clean. Uncluttered. Informative.

    1. I’ll have to remember those words when the wrinkles start showing and I need to book myself in.

  5. Loved the story, Laura! The site is neat, elegant and beautiful.

    1. Thank you, short but hopefully sweet! Thanks for looking at the site too 🙂

      1. Absolutely sweet! Your parents surely had to laugh!

        1. To be honest I think they might’ve had to laugh their way through most of my childhood, it was the only way of surviving my antics!

  6. Wonderful, a perfectly captured, brief moment to illustrate your theme. It couldn’t be any better.

    1. How very lovely, thank you 🙂

  7. You mentioned saccharine taste, “take a bite”, and birthday cake. Great! That’s my childhood story, too.
