Bloggy Birthday


Happy Bloggy Birthday to me....................

Today it is my Bloggy Birthday or Blogiversary ~ my little blog is one year old! I really can’t quite believe that I have been part of Blogland for one whole year ~ the time has gone by so very quickly and I have met some very lovely bloggy people along the way.

One of the many things that blogging has given me is the motivation to make lots of lovely things and also to try out things I wouldn’t normally have thought about making. The inspiration that comes from all you other lovely people is a very wonderful thing!


Now everyone knows that birthdays ~ even Bloggy Birthdays ~ need to have cake. Unfortunately all my baking things have been put into storage because we are trying to sell our house so bought cakes it had to be! ~ but they are still very chocolaty and very yummy indeed. I am going to celebrate my first Bloggy Birthday by putting my feet up and having a lovely cup of tea, a cake ~ or maybe 2 ~ and a little read at my new Country Living magazine too.


Bloggy birthdays also need to have presents so I bought myself a present of some lovely Rowan Pure Wool DK in some very pretty pink shades ~ I do have a little project lined up for this and all will be hopefully be revealed very soon.

As a way of saying a very BIG Thank You to all the lovely people who take the time to read my little blog there will also be presents for you too! I am not quite sure what these presents will be yet or even how many there will be either. I am also not promising that they will be handmade by me but they will definitely be something nice.

One of the most exciting things for me about having a blog is checking to see if anyone has left me any lovely comments. I just LOVE getting comments! The anticipation is sometimes just too much for me to cope with ~ I really must get out a bit more!! Anyway to be in with a chance of winning one of my Bloggy Birthday presents all you have to do is leave me a comment at the end of this post ~ I will leave it open until the end of November so that it gives you all plenty of time to be included in the giveaway.

I hope that you all have a very lovely weekend and I am looking forward to hopefully reading some of your lovely comments too :O)

Happy Blog Birthday!

I like your Lucy bird, lovely colours. It's turned out better than mine which I've now relegated to my daughter's bedroom.

Enjoy your cakes!

Hi. I found your blog through Andamento, and I'm really glad I did! Love the wool. I am also becoming a bit of a comment nut. It crept up on me slowly but surely!

I'm quite addicted to comments too! So, Happy Blogiversary to you, and many more happy posts...

Don't feel you have to rush this, as the packing/selling etc must be taking over your life at the moment!

Fantastic bird BTW.

Happy Bloggy Birthday Jackie,
I'm new to blogging but I'm like you and I love to read comments from visitors to my blog.
In sunny Queensland, where I live , we love to read about rain and cold weather while we are sweltering in the heat of our summer. We have visitors from Scotland spending Christmas with us this year. A young couple who befriended my daughter while she worked as a physio at the Royal nfirmary in Edinburgh for several years. It will be fun to show them what a HOT Christmas is like.
