Tra la la la it is my first blog birthday.
I am in a state of shock that I have been around with my diaries for a whole 12 months!!
It is strange, as I galloped through the 70s early doors thinking I wouldn't keep it up but wanted to get through my diaries at the same time.
These are my 1st posts ... here & here .... oh & here
Obviously I have enjoyed it and decided to slow up a little. Once I get to the end of 1979 I will travel back again to 1977. I lost that diary so posted the year through memory and internet research... but now I can revisit, but after having a skip through it ..... it is sooooo cringing to read!!
So how did I get to be on here? Well you can blame & for that. ( oh through out this post just click on the pictures for the culprits :-) )
I mentioned the diaries and before I knew it here I was/am.
In April 2007 I made a huge career change. Stopped working silly o'clock hours and went 9 -5. Most certainly I couldn't have blogged in my former role as I would simply not have had the time.
In July 2007 I joined FuelMy Blog. Bill had told me about it but had no idea what it was about. Then one weekend I had a mate staying. I was telling her about the world of blog and was showing her the sites etc...... I nipped up to the loo and she sneakily posted a comment on Daddy Papersurfers site anonymously (on my behalf... yes alcohol was included in this equation) ..... the rest as they say 'is history'!
DP opened his cupboard and coerced me to join in and I have been in that darned cupboard ever since with DP, Sylvie & B4by, a llama and some guest visitors !! (you should pop along it is decorated lovely .. it has that feminine touch!)
During my time blogging I have won a few competitions.... a T-shirt 'I am a big Deal', I got something from Kevin's cupboard ... read here for a while (ok a day) I tried it!!, a fabulous handbag from Laga in a competition arranged by LindaC through FuelMyBlog and so much more that I am having trouble explaining to my Teen why I get all these parcels through the post from around the World (it would never do for her to discover I was far wilder than she is at the same age!!)
One of the best things that I have won is for my blog to be published in a book ... that really is an amazing prize through Blog2Print... something I must work on (must select what pages I want to be printed and sort out my typos lol)
Have I mentioned yet the Fanzine that I started following Daddy Papersurfer's launch... following a mad idea by Ms D.Ranged? Well yes 70s has an exclusive view of DP's past and present... if you click on his blog you will see all the Fanzine's listed on the right hand column.... what an eye opener that has been & me a former Sunday School teacher!!
Now the friends I have met! ooops before that I must mention something else LT and FAI her Granddad ... that is me and FAI is my Granddad what a star he was & I am hooked on family history :-) & Random Place of Mind my bezzie mate Sunny
Back to my blog family & friends ....there are many & if I don't mention you it is no slur on you .. it is probably I am pushed for time to link everyone. So apart from those mentioned already here goes (& no particular order at all ) ....
Nursey Myra gorgeous gal with no internet just now but what advice she will give you !!
Dear Frac (also Secretary to the fanzine.... such a hard task!!)
Crofty (we were drinking in the same pub at the same time in Manchester & probably rubbed shoulders at the bar but never recognised each other!!)
Auntie Dar.. what can I say except another gorgeous gal on blogsphere and at home
Sugar Queen from the US of A .... pouring sugar and all things so lovely on us all
Penfold the son of DP (although denial on his part .. Penfold that is .. have to say he is solely responsible for the virus that is DaddyPapersuferitis though ... tsk!)
The lovely TnB (now hooked with said above ... awwww a lovely tale of blogluuuurve across the interweave :-) )
Mystic Veg .. what he can't do with veg isn't worth knowing
The Reverend from Elvis's home land
Cowgirl Betty .. a rootin' and a tooting from ... erm New York!!
Diane a great Norvern lass who decided to wimp out down Souff (you know I don't mean that!) & does the most amazing books... love 'em
BenSparks a wonderful dedicated photographer .. who is running a great competition
John C... what can I say about this amazing bloke who although speaks the same language as me ... I have no idea what he is on about????.. he is from Florida though!! LOL
Again if you have not been mentioned I do apologise... but you are either on my blog friends list (featured on 70s land) or I have posted on your blog ....
Now I have to just finish .. that another icon of blogsphere started her blog on the very same day that 70s did ... so Happy Blogday to you :-)

May 'the Posse be with you'
May 'the Posse be with you'
The most hilarious irony of Olga & I starting our blogs was, on the 30th April 2007 it was a ....'One day blog silence'. Obviously we both accept the true meaning of the day for those for whom it was meant.. but Olga & I silent??? surely not a chance :-D
Oh and this is not spell checked ... Grammar Police .. easy cop guv!!
Thank you everyone for a fabulous year
