Wow ! This popped up in my Notifier today ! Two years with WordPress dot Com and what a ride we had !
You registered on WordPress.com 2 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
Living, as I do, in a quiet rural village in the mountains of southern Spain NOTHING should be happening. A goat escaping on the road should be the highlight of my blog. But, quite the opposite has happened. I am on my 196th post, have 989 followers, we have made 12,981 comments, but most of all we have had fun, haven’t we ?
I have had bloggers Ute and Manny visit me. I had a great time in Israel with Heila and live close to my friend David. On top of that I have made so many blogging friends throughout the world. Yes, you !
It’s been a wonderful two years. Where I get the ideas from for posts ? I usually don’t have a clue except when something personal happens. Sometimes traumatic, such as a lumbar puncture turned into fun when I opened my pain clenched eyes and found myself staring at the polka dots of a nurse’s knickers six inches from my face.
Most of all, I love to comment, we love to comment. I try to have fun with you and most of you are game for a laugh even though some of you are in extreme pain and are going through or have been through extreme traumas. I like to visit your blogs, some fantastic, some mediocre, but you are brave enough have a go in getting your skill or point of view online so I can read about your expertise or thoughts. Well done !
Thank you for 2 years of friendship and fun my friends <3
So many highs and lows. More highs than lows, thank heavens ! 2 years ago I lost my companion of 20 years to cancer. Her children had me evicted with 3 days notice. Spanish friends came to my rescue. I rented, then bought, then renovated the apartment they put me in. I have a young family in the apartment below who do everything for me.
After 2 years of tests and mis-diagnosises, my hands still don’t work as they should. Although it’s difficult to do anything on my own I do have great friends who help in restaurants etc.
I’ve had a party, bloggers visit, can watch English TV if I wish, go and do what I want to do, had my first holiday in years and I love to blog !
So, at the moment, my cats and I live in our little piece of heaven.
What is planned for me for my future ? Who knows ! I’ll definitely keep on blogging. My Neurologist says she is going to fix me by being aggressive. (That’ll make a good post !!) I hope to carry on living here amongst my friends. I am still waiting for a 41 year old woman to come into my life.
But most of all, whatever happens, I want to have fun, both blogging and in real life.
Thank you dear friends for stomping through my posts and leaving a trail of comments and likes as you leave. You’re magic !!
