Happy 2nd Birthday, blog

And you have hardly changed your look at all!!

That is right - I have been whinging, expounding and basically exposing myself on this blog for 2 years today!!!

I had a look back...

December 2 years ago I was whining about my washing machine, other people and young people today. Not much has changed...

I have been waking early for nearly two years.

I gave poetry, recipes and taught the world about tuckshops.

I told you about V when V was a new addition in my life.

I warned you about trampolines.

I finally broke ten comments when we bought some jewellery - six months after I had begun blogging (and 17 months before tying the knot).

I got stumbled when I taught the world my secret to folding fitted sheets.

I have whinged about shopping for bras.

I broke 20 comments for my tribute to 'Salina's father and again when I had my first kiss.

And yet - when being googled, the post that is found most often? All those strange people googling may be surprised by my version of a plastic bag fetish - although admittedly, a decent second is where people will find joy as the words to Moja Mala are indeed here.

I have met many wonderful people through this blogging lark, and over 20,000 people (probably the three of you several thousand times) have been to see my 333* posts.

So thank you, all those who do check in. Would you like some cake?





Technically, this is my 334th post, but I just found one I never posted...

Happy blogirthday! I loved reading your history with V. I loved the fitted sheets tutorial. It was interesting to see that we fold our sheets using the same basic idea, except that I don't stretch it out flat. I put all the corners together, give the thing a good shake, smooth it out, and then finish folding it. I am also a person who stuffs the pillowcase, flat sheet, and fitted sheet inside the other pillowcase.

I felt a little like singing 'It's a small world after all...'

Wow, two years of blogging and I never knew you were here! I have come by to say I am so glad you 'de-lurked' to say Hi and offer me support. I appreciate it so much Jeanie and I hope you will stay 'de-lurked' and visit me more often (I know I'm greedy aren't I?) Anyway your blog looks like a lark and so much fun I will be spending a bit of time here cheering myself up. Take care my new friend and thanks so much again. Hugs to you Jen B xxxx
