So long, farewell, adieu......

It is with a heavy heart
 that tonight I pull the plug on
 mostly older than me.
This blog has been about the family
our dreams, our plans.

Now I have to find my own dreams
and make my own plans
and those dreams and plans
deserve a place of their own

But it is important that I not
leave here without
saying how much I have enjoyed the trip
and a huge thank you to
those wonderful people who
have travelled it with me. 

who held my hand over the last
seven months and made
sure I came back

and the friends I met who have also been there
through the long hall
Vicki from Vicki lane mysteries
Anita from Castles Crowns and Castles,
  Semi expat in Oz,
Life in the Country Lane
A room for everyone
and Ann 

There are so many other wonderful people I met
who have widened my view of the world
who allowed me to share some of their
tears and laughter who
gave me a glimpse of their lives
and who taught me that
goodness still abounds in this
world of ours

I thank you one and all

hopefully I will catch up again in the near future
but for the last time from here



  1. It's a gift to know when the time to move on has come. Good luck as you move forward!

  2. Well now I'm crying and can't see what I am typing.

    I want to think of you walking through your life with me on your right flank and Renee on your life.

    Please keep in touch via email,my thoughts are always with you.

    Big hug, love to you.


  3. All the best to you, dear Julienne, as you build anew! I'll hold you in my heart and hope to hear from you now and then. Hugs, Vicki

  4. I wish you all the very best for those dreams and plans Julienne - will miss hearing all about them. My mum is also a keen (but quiet) reader so all the best from both of us. Lots of love, Ann x

    the goodness you speak of is YOU.
    i love you.
    when ever it is a full moon...
    look up.
    i will be thinking of you.
    for real!!!

  6. Oh Julienne...I read this with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart. I know that you are doing what is best for you and that makes me happy...but please know you will be truly missed here!! You are such a beautiful soul, always ready to give encouragement, support, kind words and love, to everyone. I am so incredibly thankful to have met you through your fabulous blog and I know that we will always be friends (and as we say...wish we lived closer!!). May YOUR new journey bring you every happiness. Please stay in touch my friend. Much love to you always ~ xx

  7. You are a fabulous human being Julienne. I will miss this place but I do hope, when you are able, that you pop up somewhere else so that you can share your wonderful take on the world. It is wonderful...don't doubt that! I am so grateful for the encouragement you've given me...there's another story on the way for you soon :) I know that life must still be very sad for you, that your grief is still raw, but I am so pleased to see you writing of dreams and plans. And I for one, can't wait to see what they are. You take great care of yourself, ok? With much love xx

  8. I understand how you feel, but will still miss reading your posts. Take care and stay in touch. Perhaps a post now and again if the mood strikes you.

  9. Oh gosh, I feel so sad! I can understand why you're saying goodbye though, I think. Thank you for the special mention, it's very nice of you. I've loved your thoughts and pictures these last couple of years. I hope life is beautiful for you from here on, I'll be thinking of you. Love always..Rachaelxxx

  10. Oh my dear Julienne - I wish you love and luck and maybe you will in the future do another blog... ? Totally understand though. XXXXX

  11. Julienne, oh no! I do understand though. I have been so remiss in posting. I had hip replacement and still have 4 more weeks of rehab! better every day!!

    Wishing you all the best!!

  12. Thank you all for your lovely comments. I know I have spoken to you and told you where to go but anyone else who wants to follow the adventures you can find me at and the adventure will begin.
    I have decide to leave MOTM up for the moment having read all your beautiful comments over the years I cannot bring myself to hustle them of to oblivion!
    So come along and join me soon with much love Julienn xx

  13. Julienne - it is with a sad heart I discovered today you have given adieu to your marvellous blog. It is with much understanding though, as I've thought much the same. Since our move to the U.K., and all our personal upheaval preventing me from blogging, I"ve lost 95% of my readers and feel a sense of displacement. I'll miss you and your great humour and your kind comments. I wish you and yours a very happy Christmas. I'm happy to have had the pleasure of knowing you as I have through reading your blog.

    All my best to you for always,

  14. Dearest Julienne,

    Do you know that you can export this blog to save it and again import it with comments and all?
    Such lovely work needs to be saved and you should do it. Just bring it into your new blog as older archive.
    Lots of love to you and blessings for your new endevour.


  15. I have treasured all your wonderful comments over the years Julienne, thank you for being one of my very favourite Hedgies. Sending you the warmest of wishes as you start on a new journey.
    Millie xx

  16. the old adage of one door closes and another this case a pink chair. looking forward to seeing you there julienne

  17. Hi Julienne,
