Blog Challenge Day 2

Day 2 of my bloggy challenge. Today I'm going to tell you the meaning behind my blog name.

In my last post I told you that that I lost my sight when I was 4 years old. I had cataracts which is hereditary. Well in the following year I had 4 eye operations and although that did restore a large amount of my sight there were still things even with my lovely (!) thick glasses that I couldn't see for a couple of years. Things like stars and rainbows. So when I was 6 and we were at a Christian Festival (Camping in very muddy conditions) There was a big rainbow over the entire campsite! Everyone was ooh and ahhing when suddenly (as my Mum tells it) a little voice from the back cries "I can see it!" yes that little voice was mine and there was a lot of rejoicing at me seeing my first rainbow since my operations.

Since then the sight of rainbows always fills me with delight and I will stop what I'm doing and watch it for as long as it stays (unless I'm driving of course). I have become adept at spotting the slightest sign of a double rainbow too! I often find that rainbows appear at times when I need encouragement or a lift which just makes them more special.

. I use rainbows in everything personal. My first email address (that wasn't my name) was rainbowflute (I play the flute as I said yesterday) my first business name was Celt Celf which doesn't mean rainbow but I had a rainbow on my logo, my current business name is Rainbow Cottage (you get the theme hehe) and so as my blog is to be the things I want to share on a daily basis, the grey days when I need a rainbow and the Rainbow Days when the sun has come out and the rainbow is there in all it's glory! 

So there you have it! I hope you have found that interesting. 
See you tomorrow!
