One Year On

Can’t decide whether to do a happy dance, or to just carry on scratching my head and throwing the sheets of paper away.  Except it’s virtual paper these days, isn’t it?  Far less messy.

All I really want to do is to say thank you to each and every one of you who has helped me through this, my first year of blogging.  I didn’t really know where I was going when I started out, and a year later I’m still not certain, but does it matter?  I don’t think so.

What does matter is that I’ve found a voice, and more than that, I’ve found a world of wonderful friends.  You make me smile, sometimes even laugh out loud.  You fill me with admiration.  You encourage and support.  You help me to learn.  You make my days disappear in a puff of smoke!  Best of all, you make me try to be better than I am.

Could I have anticipated this one short year ago?  Not at all.  I just hope that I have been able to give back just a fraction of the joy that I have received.  Thank you for making this a fulfilling and happy year for me.


  1. Jo, it feels like so much longer than a year that we’ve been swapping comments back and forth, belated congrats on your one-year anniversary. xxx Ailsa

    1. Madhu, that’s a lovely thing to say. It’s funny isn’t it? When I’m reading posts my eyes are always drawn to the little icons at the bottom to see who’s been there, and it’s always comforting to spot yours.

  2. Congratulations Jo! 🙂 I wished I had ‘caught’ hold of your blog in it’s beginning. You’ve made it a really nice one.

    I didn’t know this was you first year, again, congrats!
