My friend Kath who writes at Blurb From The Burbs, has been entrancing me with her stories of life and family for years now.
I discovered blogs when I read a link in a column called "Net Adventures", in my local newspaper, The Advertiser, one Saturday.
I'd just recenly got a new computer and was looking for websites that might interest me.
From the very first day, Kath had me hooked. I spent a few weeks scrolling through her archives (she probably thought she'd picked up a stalker), and finally worked out how to leave comments.
(Through the comment box, I learned how to link to other blogs, and we all know the rest of that story, I'm sure).
Anyway, through reading Kath's posts for so long, I feel I've come to know her, LC, her husband, and their wonderful daughter, Sapphire, quite well.
Today is Sapphire's birthday.
Sapphire, this is for you.
and here's one to share with all your friends......
