  1. I Ally, just had a scan of your blog and wanted to say it is amazing. You sound like one of those girls on a sitcom or in a movie which people view from a distance which are so fun and have so much going for them in life. You have fresh perspective, your outlook on life is so big, your mind is working overtime constantly. I love it! It feels like I was there 3 days ago and now I am 35 with 2 beautiful teenagers. Time flies very quickly and once you get a boyfriend it turns into a tornado and picks you with with it. Stay grounded and hope to see all your bucket list boxes get ticked off! All the best girlie! Jean
