Nobody Remembered


20th September was a 1st Anniversary for me!

To be truthful it was the first Birthday of my Baby. Now Elly calm down and don’t get all worked up. There is nothing for you to be excited about. Relax and rest up after all that travel round Europe. I will talk to you tomorrow.

The baby I refer to is my blog. The very first post consisted of five lines. Today I could ask the same question “Am I mad or just insane? What would I have to say that would be of interest to other people?”

I suppose I have improved a little and from time to time amused the odd passerby.

There is one thing for sure, it is much more fun that I ever expected. I have made friends across the globe, spoken to a few and physically met several. I hope not to have made any enemies along the road. Granny surely you know I love admire Grandad and his easy way with words.

I am now at the stage of feeling guilty on the days when I fail to find the words for a post. It is now more important to read the work of my new found friends and laugh, learn and sometimes weep at the stories they have to tell. Thank you one and all for help, encouragement and faithfully returning to to leave comments.

I never for one moment thought I would last a month never mind a full year.


Cheers, thanks & hugs!

    Happy Blogday GM!
    I love visiting you, always something to cheer me or ponder on and yikes, I got all the questions right on the previous one. I’m so bloody brilliant I astonish myself (blows on her own fingernails).

    Belated congrats Grannymar! Your blog is always a delight to dip into and you keep me well-grounded with your stories about times past. And I just LOVE the sense of humour that ‘Grandad’ brings out in you! Here’s to another great year ahead!
