yep apparently I look that old!!!!
Anyway today is a special day for me because I have reached the grand old age of 500. Yes you did read that right, I am 500 and I feel I'm looking rather good for my age. The Oil of Olay is definately doing the trick.
Oh, ok, not really 500 in years but far more importantly 500 in post number. I have now been blogging for 5 years and have managed to get to the first 500th post of this blog's history. So what should we do to mark this auspicious occassion? Well I for one am doing something dead exciting and visiting my psychiatrist. She's very lovely and it's quite appropriate as I started this blog at about the same time I started seeing her. She's very perceptive, highly professional and a great doctor. So yay for my Psychiatrist she is awesome.
Anyway after that I might invite my blog readers around for a cup of tea and some yummy and very naughty cakes and tell them some weird 500 facts:
500 is a Harshad number - please do not ask me to explain that as my maths is rubbish, sorry.
500 is an html code for internal service error
£500 is known as a Monkey.
500 is an American card game
A festival originating in Devon but most recently held in Shoreditch to celebrate art and creativity.
''500 miles'' is the title of a fave song by The Proclaimers.
While we were enjoying tea and cake, I would tell you all how much I have loved coming here and writing my posts and trying to think of interesting subjects to talk about. That this blog has been like therapy on occasions when my brain has been far too addled to even think straight and that the friendships I have made here have been integral to my recovery. I would tell you how I have learned so much about what does and doesn't work, how reading other blogs has inspired me to be better, how even though I've been blogging for 5 years it seems like only yesterday. I would give a big thank you to you all for coming over and reading and especially taking the time to write comments everytime. I would say how amazing my readers are and how they make me smile. I would also say a big thanx to that amazing scrapbooker and class developer Shimelle Laine who during her class ''Blogging for scrapbookers'' instilled a greater understanding about blogging and what it could achieve.You can do this class online in your own time plus there is a sequel too called ''Beyond blogging for scrapbookers'' I also completed.
Oh and I nearly forgot. As an enormous thank you I am going to do a little giveaway. I'm going to give one commentator the chance to win a copy of this great book which gives some brilliant ideas on taking better pictures
All you have to do is leave me a comment about why you came here in the first place and maybe why you stayed. It's just for my own personal interest really. I will pull a name out of the hat on the last day of April so you have oodles of time. Good luck
We might even have some non-alcoholic bubbles cos I can't drink and toast to the next 500 which I do hope won't take quite as long to achieve.
