Get Well Soon Chele!

This post is dedicated to my ToA - Michele Swindle (Book Review Blogger over at A Belle's Tales)

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!

  1. Such a beautiful post! Michele is my bestest blogger buddy and book soulmate, too, so I'm right there with you, wishing her a speedy recovery and missing her all the same. I shouldn't be surprised, but I'm glad to know she's got bookish friends all over the place, wishing her well. :)

    1. Aw thanks! :) Chele is awesome, hence the nickname ToA. Long story short but it stands for Twin Of Awesomeness - this is because I said she's awesome, she said I'm awesome. So we are awesome together. We decided we had used up the last drop in the awesome well. LOL
      Though I have never met her, I would cross the world in a heartbeat if she needed me.

      I'm glad she has a strong support network. Good friends are hard to come by.

    2. Awww, Jen! Thank you, my BBS!! I love you girl! You guys are the best, and have made this day an incredible and happy one! xoxoxoxo

  2. Ahhhhhh!!! This is so beautiful and soooo sweet! The songs made me cry the happy tears! So precious! I feel the exact same way about you, love! This was better for me than any medicine could be. I love you so much, ToA! Thank you for your kind words, your support, and all of your encouragement. Most of all thank you for the wonderful friendship that I will always treasure. Katertot sends her love and thanks you for the shout out! Mwahhh!! <3 <3 <3

    1. I'm glad you liked it hun. I'm always thinking of you. So much so, I ordered you a little present yesterday :)
      Love to Katertot and Mike xoxoxoxo
