Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

I am issuing a warning this Tuesdays Treasure. If you don't like sentimentality as they in the movies "Look away Now!" My treasure today is my best friend Ann. Most of you will have read my posts about my lovely friend. Yesterday we caught up for lunch before she gets too busy....as the day I have dreaded has finally arrived. She has sold her house and she moves next week. I am both excited for her and sad for me. Being 15 minutes away and being and hour and a half away is certainly going to be different. Ann is the most loving and caring friend and has stood by me through some very trying times especially when others have let me down badly. Ann is also the most generous soul I have ever encountered in this lifetime.She believed in my ability when I didn't even believe in it myself. We have had HUGE laughs together...got lost in the country because we missed the turn from talking too much, sat on peoples verandahs we didn't know (some of you will be familiar with that story), had great holidays together, searched out that special "Christmas" piece and enjoyed many happy times. I know the happy times aren't over just changing but as you can tell I am feeling a little sorry for myself right now. Being in Ann's company for me is like 'coming home'...where they know you and love you regardless of how 'weird' you are...and believe me I'm weird!!!
My Lovely freind Ann
My beautiful handmade Birthday card from Ann
Ann and her husband so deserve to have their  wishes come true  as both are in professions that take care of us, Ann being a theatre nurse and her Husband a fireman for many years. So I wish them Joy in their new home  and all of lifes good things....and they better hurry up and  unpack and decorate my bedroom  and get the kettle on 'cause I won't be long.  You can look back now!! If you have someone or something you treasure share it with us over at  MELODY'S lovely blog.
When the 'scribbling fairy' and I run amok!

I finally put the scribbling fairy to bed for a while and am back to some stitching as I am trying to get my "Secret Santa" pressie  for my craft group and Santa sack swap finished in plenty of time.
Have a great day. I am off to put my soggy tissues in the bin.
Blessings Michelle

  1. Michelle, what a lovely post.. I'm sure Ann will soon have your bedroom ready! Remember, she is going to miss you as much as you will miss her.. Everyone should have an Ann in their life...xx

  2. I'm sure an hour & a half won't lessen the bond between you both. It sounds too strong for that. Hopefully there is a good cafe and craft shop about half way that you can both sneak away too regularly. Tracee xx

  3. Aww Michelle I send you hugs. You will talk on the phone almost everyday. That happen to me and one of my friends. You will not loose touch. I agree she needs to hurry and fix your room so you can visit.

  5. I know how you feel. My best friend moved recently also and like you she loves me for who I am. My gf (short for girlfriend and our nicknames for each other) Moved from the south coast of NSW to QLD, Hervey Bay area. I recently went to visit her and it was amazing how we both just picked up from where we left off! I feel for you and want you to know that my thoughts are with you and your bestie as you adjust to a new way of being.

  6. I know how you feel as well. Both my best friends who have been through lots with me ( and vice versa) moved about an hour and a half away but in opposite directions. I know they are both always at the end of the phone and when we catch up it's like we have never been apart. Hugs from me to you too

  9. Michelle I hear how sad you are about this change , and you're right it wont be the same. But friends like Ann don't come along very often and I'm sure you'll still make time for one another. And when you do catch up it's going to be fabulous because it sounds like sleepovers are going to be a part of that!

  12. My best friend not only moved house twice in the last 10 years but even moved Countries. Yesterday she moved back and is living across the road from me. I understand fully. Sending you a virtual hankie and a hug.

  14. My wish for everyone is for a friend like this - mine just moved from down the street to the next city, and I know it's hard! You're a wise woman to treasure your friends, Michelle.

  15. Friends like Anne are very special so I can understand why you are sad to have her moving away , you had me tearing up . I guess the good thing is it isn't on the other side of the planet you can still go visit. hugs Sheila
