It is one year today since I started this blog. This is what has happened since.
It has taken up an enormous amount of my time. I have enjoyed every minute. (Apart from the many, many minutes spent trying to figure out what Blogger was doing with my text and pictures.)
I have made lots of new friends. Some I haven't met in person yet but I still think of them as friends. Others I have met, exchanged stories and eaten with them. How wonderful is that ?
I have read dozens of other blogs and learned loads of stuff I didn't know before. I have a huge number of new recipes to try. I have tried other peoples' gardening tips and read books they recommended. I have had great fun visiting places I have seen in other blogs that I would never have thought of by myself.
I have written a story. Something I always wanted to do properly since I finished writing stories on leaving school.
I have had the need to trawl through hundreds of photos. This has been a complete joy, reminding me of how much we have crammed into our lives so far and how lucky we are.
I haven't run out of ideas yet but I haven't seen the bottom of my ironing basket since I started.
