Today I am going to share a personal experience with you which was very funny for me: A young girl moved in next door and besides a once a week "hello" when we happen to run into each other, we have not really spoken. Yesterday, she came knocking on my door and asked me if I perhaps had space in my freezer as there was something wrong with hers and she was afraid the stuff would go off. I said sure, bring it over, I would make space for her things. She went to fetch it and we got chatting about them not making things as they used to as she had only recently bought her freezer and I invited her to sit down. I told her about my blog and the nice people on it and asked her about her work etc. After about half an hours she said that I was not at all what she expected me to be. I looked at her and she added that she had seen me outside taking pictures and she expected my house to be full of bugs and things. LOL!! LOL!! I had a great big laugh at this and showed her some of my photographs. The lesson to be learnt by this is not to judge people so quickly. Get to know them first, you might be pleasantly surprised at what you find. LOL!!

What will we do without our daisies in the garden to brighten up our day?
