Happy Birthday -- Chalky's World is one!

1!  1!  1!  1!   1!   1!   1!   

Oh, how I have enjoyed this first year!

Of course the only way to celebrate a birthday is to give presents.
I do love wrapping presents and using colourful paper.
All the colours of the rainbow.
I love Rainbows.

On some sad days in my life I have looked up and there in the sky has been a rainbow.

 Almost like a promise that " this time will pass." 
And, thankfully time heals and the sun comes out again.

So, a year has passed since my blogging adventure began.
 I found this rainbow tissue with a gift for you in mind.

 If you would like to leave a comment and let me know your favourite colour of the rainbow I will send a little colourful gift to you with lots of love.
Now where are those cakes!


  1. Congratulations on your year !
    Think mine would be blue - blue sky blue sea etc

  10. Happy blogiversary and well done for your intersting and often thought-provoking blog. I do so enjoy reading it. I would say blues to lilacs are my favourite, although I'm going through a green phase at the moment!
