Just over a year ago, I read this post, written by Lucy of Attic 24. I'd been thinking about writing a blog for a while, but when I read her words, it suddenly seemed like something that I'd enjoy, something worthwhile.
I still wasn't exactly sure why and what I would get out of it, and in fact that's something I ask myself a lot. But I thought, well, I'll just do it.
And I can honestly say, it's been a blast. I've so enjoyed writing it, and doing something with all of the photos I take.
But most of all, it's been amazing to meet so many like-minded people. People who like the same things that I do, and people who are kind and generous and encouraging and helpful. Blogland is a place of friendship and inspiration, and I often find I am pushed to try something new, to go a little further, to be a bit more adventurous, and to live life a little more fully. I examine my life and the things around me more than I otherwise would. And there is always support for anything you might want to try.
So I just wanted to say a huge thank you, for stopping by here, for reading and commenting and connecting. You've totally blown me away. I did want to have a little giveaway, but the thing I ordered hasn't turned up yet, so I shall wait and see if it does first, just in case.
You may have noticed the header has been changing in all sorts of odd ways. I'm not hugely confident (or at all able) when it comes to the technical stuff. I naively thought I'd change the top picture, so I deleted it, and from there on in it all went wrong. The new pictures were miniscule. Then I couldn't get it back to the way it was before. You think there'd be a button for "Go Back To How It Was Before I Meddled With It", but there isn't. And I couldn't find the original photo or remember the font or anything. Then I made the pictures too big. I finally got them to an okay size, so I think I shall leave it for a while. I want to change the photo of me and a couple of other things, so if it all looks wrong next time you visit, you know why.
Wishing you all a good weekend, full of adventures and expeditions and also some cosy happy at-home time. I shall be missing the middle boy who has a Beavers sleepover and watching a little football as usual and wandering around with my camera looking at the world and wondering what I shall write next on my little blog. Thank you again for visiting. CJ xx
