Miscellany

Hello all

Another day, another post! I told you I was going to try and get back into the swing of this blogging lark! It’s sad, because whilst I am not a numbers whore, I secretly liked the fact that my little WordPress chart was showing some pretty tidy numbers for a while back there, and now I seem to have lost a lot of those readers. Of course, I know that the only way to get them back to is to post a lot and say things that people might find interesting, so prepare yourself for some hardcore blogging!

I am pleased to announce that I have managed to cross another item off my birthday list! This weekend, as it was Guy Fawkes Night, I had a Bonfire/Fireworks Party! There was no bonfire, so that’s a bit of a misnomer, but there were lots of fireworks, even more food, and a lot of my favourite people. I took lots of photos, but it’s been absolutely ages since I used my camera, and I seem to have lost any ability I once had to take a decent photograph. So most of them came out rather blurry. I will be doing a post and including the ones that didn’t, and as just about everyone there had a camera, I might borrow a few shots! As for my list, that’s now five items crossed off. Which is pathetic, considering it is my birthday next weekend (5 days!), and I don’t have a hope of completing any more! Ah well, I’ll just try again next year.

Talking of my birthday, of course I’m super excited! I have a fun weekend planned – Saturday is going to be spent in London at the Lord Mayor’s Show (a family tradition as it’s always on Remembrance Weekend, which of course always falls close to my birthday), and then on Sunday, I have a surprise outing that my friends are organising. I know that I am doing something, I have no idea what it is, so I am very excited for that too! My birthday will be bit different this year, but I hope that I can still enjoy it.

In other news, I have still been toying with the idea of changing the name of my blog. I even went as far as to mess around on Photoshop creating a new header with a new name, and then I realised that I should check if there is already a WordPress blog using the URL. Of course there is, so that’s on the backburner for now. I’m still working on it though, so I’ll let you know as soon as it can go ahead!

I hope everyone is well, and enjoying autumn (or of course summer, or whatever season it is where you are). I love hearing from you all, so if you have anything to say to me, get in touch! Follow me on Twitter – I’m not especially funny, and maybe I’m not terribly interesting, but I tweet a lot, so if quantity over quality counts for anything, you can find me here!

Until next time

    That is bull-honky. If you really wanted to, you could get through several of your list in 5 days. Just glancing, 2, 7, 10, 11, 12, 22 and 23 all seem manageable. Even 24 if you speed read.

    I’ll agree with all of those except for 23. How on earth do you think I can pull a pint?

    Also, I read very fast, and I still wouldn’t get through Lord of the Rings by Saturday.

      You’re mates with the people who run your local aren’t you? Explain the sitch and ask if you can have a go. Done.
