It's a whole year to the day since I first wrote my first blog, I was so pleased that I had managed to set it up and get going. I wanted to use it as a kind of diary, logging what we'd been up to and our life in general, something to look back on and I think it's worked. I've done 71 posts, so generally one a week depending whether I have my lap top available and internet access, so not bad. I have learnt how to list the blogs I like to read and more recently made a facebook page. I did realise that I hadn't put my caravan on the cover picture so that needs revisiting when I have a young person to help me (they sorted it in the first place). I'd like to be able to put a list of subjects down the side that link to blog posts e.g. cooking, cafes etc so another for the 'Blog Action Plan'. I have enjoyed all the lovely comments you have left for me but am intrigued by number of readers I sometimes get as I have no idea who most of them are!
But back to a year ago - I was just about to celebrate my 60th birthday and so now am just about to celebrate my 61st. Coincidentally we are off to Bridlington in the caravan again with the same friends, this time on my birthday. 'You must be mad' I can hear you say 'with the cold weather approaching' Well cold weather isn't a problem in the caravan as long as we have the right gas that doesn't freeze (we do this time!) an inboard water tank (we do in this van), warm clothes (ready for packing) and the odd bottle of wine (in the wine bags by the front door) we're fine. Having studied the weather forecast hour by hour it seem that the east side of the country should be ok, of course if looks as if that is going to change we will be staying at home.
So to finish this short but sweet post ( I need to make some parkin before I go to work) I would like to say
to you all for your support during my first year. With two weddings and a little surprise at the end of June (more another time about that) I will have plenty to write about in my second year.
Love Anne xx
