3 years and counting

I simply can't believe I have been blogging for 3 years ... where the heck does the time go?

I realise of late I have been a bad old blogger and not getting myself out there and doing... sometimes real life just takes over (how darned inconsiderate of it!!). Work has been manic since October, been running 2 homes for a few weeks following my Mums breast cancer op (she is doing very well though) I have worked out I have driven around 1000 miles back and to over those weeks, I have also got back into doing family history research again which had been sadly neglected.

On Saturday I'd helped arrange a 'meet' of fellow dead people hunters in Liverpool and was greeted by a chap who said 'are you diary of a 70s teen?'... lol ....it was Enumerator who followed me in the early days.
.
Also in this last 12 months I have had a photo exhibition and been on a photo walk. One of the photos I took on the photo walk I shared with Liverpool Museums blog and lo and behold this week it was featured on their blog ... wow how chuffed am I ... do click here to see the post :)

So here is to the next 12 months where I hope I will be a better blogger and I am sure there are some snickets of life in the 70s you have not yet seen (incidentally I am bidding on a great vintage coffee table on e bay from the 70s .... it would be so cool in my lounge )

& cheers to knitted toilet roll holders in all of your bathrooms

Happy blogaversary!

I have noticed when clearing out my blogroll recently that lots of the blogs who started out when I did just over 3 years ago have fallen by the wayside, so 'Hurrah!' to us for keeping it up - even if it is less frequently than at the start. Real life does and should take priority!

Glad your mum is doing well and hope she recovers fully.

I popped over to look at your photo - it's fabulous 70s! I left a comment though it's in moderation for the moment while they check my criminal history....

I just read this via feedly.com which is wonderful, but extremely distracting 'cos it reminds me of all the sites I haven't checked out for far too long. Congrats on the photo on the museum blog, bet you're well chuffed and deservedly so. Best wishes to your Mum.

I was just discussing with Crofty how we have tired of the blogosphere. Something to do with being 'early adopters', methinks... Congratulations on your 3 years, though!u

Thank you Bill and as you know it was you that tempted me into blogging back then ... I am not so much tired of blogging I simply can't find the time but I am grateful to have met some simply wonderful people whilst I have been doing this ... btw Enumerator was asking after you :)
