Greetings From Bonnie Doon

Hello everyone, and greetings from Bonnie Doon.

My lack of posting is due to the fact that I am away from home, and am having a wonderfully, relaxing time, catching up with friends, books, crocheting, cross-stitching (and not a lot of computer-playing !!)

I haven't even taken many photos ... have barely left the caravan park. We did, however, discover a bridge, uncovered by the receding lake waters ... I will share them with you next week, as I don't want to use up my upload limit on my portable internet doodad !!

I recently submitted my bog to CRITIQUE MY BLOG ... just out of curiosity. I had noticed a few of my blog friends had also done this, so had to give it a go, also.

Anyway, here is what he (Bill, at Critique My Blog) wrote ...

Alright Cat lovers...pour yourself a cup of coffee and settle into the Varieties Of Life brought to us by..well...who else...Meow. She has a blog where the main theme is cats and although I'm not a big cat fan...I could find some humor and interest in the blog. Her post Cats On Tuesday #13-Rules for cats who have a house to run is a purrfect (couldn't resist) example. The blog is set up in a busy manner with lots to look at and the posts are well written. Cat lovers and blog lovers alike should check this one out. Well done.

I must say, I was quite chuffed with this critique ... Thank you Bill.

Must go now, time to go for a walk !!

Will talk again soon.

Take care,

I submitting my blog there a few days ago...though, it's not been critiqued yet. I'm pretty excited about what he's got to say though, he's reviews are always pretty nice...especially the one he wrote for yours.

Lee said...

Good to hear from you, Meow...I was wondering how you were enjoying your Easter break. :)

Connie said...

Glad you are having fun on vacation.

You are very brave to have your blog critiqued...I would be totally too nervous. It worked out well for you though...Congratulations!!!

Take care,

Heidi said...

So sorry I haven't be around lately..I wish my excuse was a vacation. You always have such a great time when your away. :)

Congrats on the nice critique of your blog!

Good review there, Meow!

Val said...

Like Castlemaine, Bonnie Doon must get pretty busy at Easter. We had to retreat back to our block, there were so many people on the streets. It was a bumper year of course, with the Castlemaine State Festival on.

How interesting that you are getting to see some of the things previously covered by water. We saw that at Lake Eppalock a few years ago, must be even more uncovered now. This drought is getting really scary now though.

Puss-in-Boots said...

That was a great critique. I've submitted my blog, too. I'm looking forward to seeing what is said.

Your holiday at Bonnie Doon sounds so relaxing, good for you.

Enjoy the rest of your stay.

Jeanette said...

Hi Meow
Hope you had a wonderfull time at Bonnie Doone look forward to your photo's

Devil Mood said...

Hey enjoy yourself there!
We'd love pictures but it's nice to know you're having fun away from the computer. We all need some back to our roots-time ;)
I need to check that critique!

Stinkypaw said...

As if you didn't know already you were a good blogger! ;-)

Enjoy your time away & have a great weekend!

Renae said...

Hi Meow

Hope you are had a fab time in Bonnie Doon and look forward to hearing all about it and seeing the pictures when you get back :).


Dick said...

You do a good job on your blog so I'd agree with his assessment. And it is good that you guys are getting an outing away from home, in your second home. It is looking like we will not have a chance to try out our new motor home until after the wedding. Then I think Pat wants me to get my house cleaned out and on the real estate market before we take time to go away. I guess I need some kind of a deadline like that to prod me into getting all that I need to do done.

Gattina said...

That's why you didn't post for COT, you are on holidays ! I thought it only would be over the week-end ! I also got my blog "critized" back, but of course he never says that what you write is bad. Anyway I don't know who he is and where he took the right from critizising blogs, but I submitted mine too by curiosity. People who don't like cats are suspicious to me, lol !

Chloe said...

Have fun Meow. Crocheting? Wow! I want to see that.
your blog is much more than a cat blog. although you are a perfect little kitty.

Saur♥Kraut said...

How cool is that! Bill's right, BTW. ;o) So, I didn't know you were a cross-stitcher. I think you still have my email! I used to be a BIG time cross-stitcher and really need to just get rid of a lot of things I don't use anymore, so if you're interested, shoot me an email and tell me what you might want and I'll send it over to you.
