Yes, I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight,

and see the dawn before the rest of the world. ~Oscar Wilde~

madhouse ~ a disorderly, often noisy place.

~ Memories of My Childhood ~

Me at about 4 years of age with my Ma.

Me at about aged 4
(love the old telly!)

Me & my sis!

A Little About Me!
My Father reminded me that he, my Mother, my Grandfather & my Grandmother used to work at the Dump, yep the rubbish tip. They made their way by collecting metal & selling it – some other family members scoffed & ridiculed their own because they made their money, their clean money by wearing a suit & not getting dirty. They looked down on MY family because they were covered in dirt from rummaging through the tip & earning what they called ‘dirty’ money. Guess what! I was there too, rummaging through what people threw out & it was FUN! I loved it! I’m the biggest SCROUNGER out! We were poor, desperately poor but you could eat off my mothers floors they were that clean!

I am who I am because of learning to appreciate even the smallest things in life. Every gift no matter how little it cost was from the heart. Material possessions may make us happy but the best present comes from humble beginnings & learning the basic lessons of gratitude no matter what cost or value.

Love Giggi D.X
