I want to use this card to highlight the lovely words said about A Peaceful Day by Joyfulmum. Wanna take a peek?
Oh, I wanted to be the FIRST to wish you a FIRST happy birthday but jeanamarie beat me to it:( Anyway, HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY! I think I started following your blog a few months ago, I didn't realise you've only been at it for one year! You are a Pro! Congratulations.Then on her blog she wrote this:
BTW, I love reading your blog because of the content, your style of writing and the encouragement I get when I visit.
(Jeanne)... has been so generous to the homeschooling community with her blog where she freely posts her wisdom and experience in homeschooling to help newer homeschooling mums like myself.You know, Joyfulmum, I'd love to be thought of as a mentor to Aussie CM mums - that would be such an honour. Slowly, slowly...
She is truly becoming a great mentor to many many mums especially Aussie Charlotte Mason mums!
Besides being so generous with her time and wisdom, she is now also giving away stuff on her blog! Can you believe it! There is no end to her generosity.
Thanks all of you for celebrating A Peaceful Day's first birthday. It has been a lot of fun for me - I hope you've enjoyed it too.
I still have one more Great Aussie Living Book Give Away too. This one's a beautiful book. I actually had to think long and hard about giving this one up, I wanted to keep it!
It is a sensitively adapted version of Jeannie Gunn's We of the Never Never for use in Australian schools. Published in 1944, it is not at all policially correct - you can check the book out at Project Gutenberg before you enter the draw if you like!
We of the Never Never is one of my all time favourite books. We'll be reading the companion volume, The Little Black Princess next year in AO3, and this one a few years later. Watch for reviews.
The draw for this one will be open until our return from Perth. I'll draw a winner at the end on Tuesday 13th October. To enter The Great Aussie Living Book Give Away #5, all you need to do is comment on this post any time in the next few weeks telling which blog post you have enjoyed most on A Peaceful Day and why. It would be great to know what you've enjoyed reading, and it will ensure you don't forget me while I'm away. You will still love me when I get back, won't you?
There are still a few of my regular readers not amongst my 'faithful friends' in the sidebar. Do follow A Peaceful Day - please! You'll get an extra entry in the draw if you tell me about it!
I'll be drawing the winner of The Great Aussie Living book Give Away #4 tonight our time. There's still time to enter that one too. Click here!
Happy Birthday to me!!! It has been a good one!
