Wow, what a year! I can’t believe that 12 whole months have gone past since I wrote this first post.
So much has happened and we’ve met (in a virtual sense in some cases) so many lovely people. I have to admit to once being a bit sceptical about blogs and the blogging community but I take back everything I once thought. This year I have been seen some of the kindest and most generous behaviour I thought possible from a group of people, who in most cases, I have never laid eyes on and yet when a call for help or support goes out – they are there like a shot.
I have been taught how to blog, I have achieved bits of computer wizardry I never thought possible, I have been invited to wonderful evenings out with amazing ladies, I have laughed until my stomach ached, cried bit to burst and watched some very beautiful babies explore the world around them.
Now it may seem like a stock phrase, or platitudes that must be said at such times, but I am honoured to have met you all! And it really does feel like an extended family!
So thank you one and all. Thank you for listening (well reading really) my ramblings, thank you for the support you have shown me and others when they needed it. But most of all thank you for sharing and allowing me to share the adventures of our everyday day lives!
I do have to mention at this point (although I know she will cringe) my huge snogs, hugs and admiration for our life president Annie at Mammasaurus. As a newbie blogger, unsure what I was supposed to be doing , and convinced that no one would ever want to read my page, I met this paragon of virtue and found a friend. She offered support, advice and laughter. She gave me a chance to be part of Love All Blogs and gave me the confidence to carry on with what I wanted to do! So thank you lovely lovely lady – you are a truly wonderful person and I really wouldn’t still be here if you hadn’t held me up at the beginning!
So with my birthday here, our house moving sorted and now settled and some sense of order and routine back in my life, I really really am going to write more and blog more regularly – well I’m going to try!!! Don’t hold your breath!
