One year old ...

It's my one year Blogoversary this week. (This is how it all started.)

I've had such fun writing down some of my inane ramblings and comments - blogging is, afterall, a compelling but polite way of waving at the world and shouting "Look at me, look what I saw today, what do you think of this?" We share our world with others. We share where we live, what we do, what we can accomplish.

I've loved linking up with people new and old (well, kinda old - in the nicest sense of the word of course), and I am in awe of all the natural, talented writers and photographers out there in Blogland who make me feel humble, pointless and galvanised on a daily basis!

I hope to continue for as long as nature gives me a hearty poke in the eye, or random cluttered cupboards, garden renovations, lunatic dogs and bra-shopping inspire me. It's fair to say, however, that going out to earn a living now puts a slight damper on my ability to photograph pretty things so often, or come up with intelligent conversation half the time (only half?!). I think the contents of my office might only hold your attention for, ooh, say about 4 nano-seoconds. And on some days, the contents of my brain are not much more motivating!

Thank you for sharing my blog. Love and girly hugs, and a sloppy lick from my co-writer, Smudge. (And Honey says "huh?")

Now then, I think a large slice of celebratory cake is calling. Do you want some?


  1. Count me in for cake...oh, and happy first blogaversary!!!!!


  2. One large slice coming right up Flossie. Cheers!

  3. Happy bloggydoodads, yours is one of the blogs that I look forward to reading. Tis a shame how work interferes with what we really want to do

  4. Hey! Happy Blogoversary, Ann!

    Cake? Ok, if you insist...

    I was trying to photograph that same type of rose just yesterday... yours is oodles better than my attempt!

  5. Happy Blogaversary! Blogging is fun, both posting and visiting once you get over the need to feed and have found a comfortable commitment level. Keep the posts coming, blog fodder and time, willing.

    Now, about that slice of cake and a cuppa!

  6. Yes, indeed--cake is in order! Happy Blogoversary and keep posting when you can. Having to go to work is a real nuisance, but a necessary one I suppose!

  7. It is wonderful to reach your first blogaversary! Congratulations and a toast to many more years to come!

  8. Ahh - thank you everbody!

    (rubs fat tummy with pleasure and licks fingers hosting last crumbs of calorific cake - yum!)


Sorry humans, but I have had to reintroduce the word verificatin thing again due to an inordinate amount of crappy spam.
