Val Mills – Writer
I am a writer, passionate about the stories of everyday lives, past and present.
I try to record the way things were and the way things are.
Memories dim with time and eventually disappear, being lost to future generations unless they are written down.

Thanks for stopping by our blog and liking my post. Very appreaciated 🙂
I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award.. if you do not accept them, just know what you do is appreciated 🙂
Wow Sue, I’m so new here I haven’t heard of this award, but thank you so much 🙂 Can you tell me something about it?
Read the link on my page, Val.. there are ‘rules’ attached… it is an excellent way of connecting with people, showing appreciation and letting writers know they are read and enjoyed, either for how or what they write or the stories they share. 🙂
Well, thank you so much Sue. It’s nearly 10 pm Friday here in NZ and I’m just about to fall asleep, so I’ll check it out tomorrow. Meanwhile, if you played marbles as a kid you may enjoy the piece I’ve just posted 🙂 Good night from New Zealand.
As a kid? I still have a huge tin full 🙂
LOL I tried confiscating some today, but had to give them back at the end of the day
Of course, there is the old saying about having lost one’s marbles.. I at least, can honestly say I still have mine 🙂
