Folks, I first met Chele through Twitter when she entered one of my Blog Giveaways for a signed Rachel Vincent postcard. Well the good news was, she won one of the postcards. But the better news was, she became my friend.
We are so alike it's untrue. We just have this spooky 'psychic' connection. And that connection is definitely long distance as she is a Southern Gal living in Texas, USA. Whereas, as we know, I am from the UK.
We started talking regularly and realised we have a lot in common. The one thing we are most passionate about (other than our kids) is books!
Anyway, long story short, I sent her a parcel with a ring in it. It's a gorgeous silver ring that you can swap the crystal in it depending on your mood or what colour you are wearing that day.
Chele sent me a parcel in return, full of delicious sweets. Sour Jolly Ranchers and Hershey's Caramel Kisses. Plus some other lovely bits and bobs.
Anyway, now we are firm friends. She listens to me when I need to rant. I get a lot of jealousy from someone over my book reviewing. (but that's another story). And any time I need to have a cry, I know I can email Chele and she will give me the shoulder I need to cry on and sometimes the kick up the bum I need.
SO... the point of this post is coming, I promise, bear with me.....
For medical reasons I am not at liberty to divulge, Chele is having to take a break from the computer, so cannot get to blog as often as she was. Her amazing daughter, Mackenzie, has done a guest review on there for her and it was AWESOME. So I am hoping that people will still drop by her blog even though she's not around as much.
She still emails me when she can, she's a sneaky little madam. I am awaiting a parcel she is yet to send because she keeps adding things to it - I pity Mike (her hubby) when she tells him he needs to post it! Bahaha!
So, I just wanted to say:
And I always think of this song when I think of you Chele. I was even playing it as I wrote this post. Here's my song to you:
Also, this song (my inner child picked this one)
Thus endeth my mammoth post in honour of my beautiful friend Chele.
I heart you gal. BIG time. I really REALLY REALLY love you!! xoxoxoxoxo
Please folks, wish her well soon!
