Hooray and hoorah! I have finally written fifty posts on my blog. This is a particularly special milestone for me since it has taken me over two and a half years to achieve. I started this blog in July 2016, with the aim of keeping myself company at night whilst feeding my baby Chou. It was a resounding success for a full three posts, and … Continue reading Fifty posts celebration!
Dear all, Having been made nearly prostrate with horror yesterday at the discovery that my all-time favourite post (and hours of work) had inexplicably been replaced with that of another (when, in a moment of writer’s block, I opened it to reread for possible inspiration), I advise you all to check over any of your previous posts that you would be disappointed to lose. I … Continue reading A quick word of caution – check your old posts!

Many thanks to the Irish Procrastinator for a second chance to play such an amusing game, and apologies to the rest of my blogging friends for inundating you with a fresh round of quotes. This month I have been shamefully amiss in keeping on top of challenges and a few other nominations (courtesy of the lovely Nash Christmas and Moda Theresa, as well as my … Continue reading Three more days, three more quotes: Day One
A few days ago I received a nomination from fellow Brit Abroad, Bitchin’ the the Kitchen, for the previously unknown-to-me ‘One Lovely Blog Award’. I feel very privileged to have been one of the chosen ones on this occasion, as she has a very street-wise blog, and I would be the first to admit that I have always been somewhat lacking in the ‘coolness’ department. She writes … Continue reading One lovely blog award
Today is the final day of the challenge. I was nominated by The Irish Procrastinator, whose poetry and musings are highly entertaining (so if you haven’t already done so, now would be the perfect time to pay her a little visit). The Rulebook: 1. Thank the person who nominated you. 2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day). 3. Nominate … Continue reading Three days, three quotes challenge: Day Three
The Irish Procrastinator was kind enough to nominate me to take part in this three day challenge of favourite quotes. I am very grateful to her for picking me as well as feeling ever so slightly frustrated with her for tempting me into the time-consuming task of sifting through hundreds of possible choices. Selecting only three is proving almost impossible! The Rulebook: 1. Thank the person … Continue reading Three days, three quotes challenge: Day Two
Many thanks indeed to the quote-happy Irish Procrastinator for nominating me to take part in this amusing challenge. I only hope I can live up to her recommendation – she truly is the Queen of the Quote. The real challenge, of course, is restricting myself to just three quotes, which will hopefully pique the interest of the WordPress literary critics, and I find myself remembering … Continue reading Three days, three quotes challenge: Day One
A very happy Monday to everyone! I am very pleased indeed to be able to show off that I have made friends on WordPress! I find making friends to be a tricky business (especially in a foreign country) and I am always delighted when someone wants to be friends with me. Both Becca of From my Lofty Hill and Nash from Open Source have nominated me for this award. … Continue reading Friendship Blogger Award
