Have you ever used ‘Gumtree’? It is absolutely fantastic. I listed something on it for the first time yesterday and it’s been a really uplifting experience, thus far.

My advertisement even caught the attention of the local paper which was even more amusing. A lovely lady contacted me with a few questions which she had and I was more than happy to answer them for her.

As I was answering them it made me think of the Mouths of Mums community and all of my past posts. It made me remember all the beautiful, kind souls that have read what I have written and been so generous of their time that they have even given me responses.

I mentioned all of this in my reply to the reporter, and I just wanted to let you all know that I am truly grateful to everyone that has ever given me their time. Your comments often come at a time when I am in desperate need of support and I simply can’t express how much I truly appreciate reading your kind words.

I am sorry that I have not replied to each of you individually, yet, something about individual responses makes me nervous, but I will do it very soon.

The most amusing part of listing my advertisement was that only hours before I posted my listing, a gentlemen by the name of Dan posted this:


After reading his, mine didn’t seem so bad:


It made me laugh at a time when all I really wanted was just a little smile. It was a lot of fun, but goodness help me when my husband finds out.

Thank you all again.
