I've done it again

For the second year in a row I have forgotten the anniversary of my first blog post.
It all began on January the 5th 2007. and I was terrified.
I only knew how to send and receive e-mails and I would read blogs and other stuff.
I didn't know much about computers-Ebony had to teach me how to cut and paste when she was only seven and she is still teaching me stuff even now.
I only started a blog because I wanted to be part of Sharon Boggan's "Take a Stitch Tuesday" challenge and like the song says "From little things big things grow" and it sure did.
In the beginning I would be posting about all the creative things I was making and there were lots of different things being produced,but I have been very naughty of late and I just can't seem to get started on anything.
I am going to try and slow down on a lot of the voluntary work that I do so that I can get back into stitching etc.
I  love the volunteer work that I do, but I really need some "me" time--time to stitch and create--time to stretch my wings again and see if I can still fly--so to speak.
Stephen and I have been going to the movies (once a fortnight) this year and have seen the movie "Quartet" which we both enjoyed and I loved Maggi Smith and Billy Connolly.
Next was "Gangster Squad"--good but a lot of load noise with guns etc.
Today we are off to see "The Guilt Trip" with Seth Rogen and Barbara Striesand.
We are slowly working down the list.
When we were on the cruise before Christmas we saw "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and we absolutely loved it.
Enough of this rambling on--I'm off to hang out some washing.

Happy blogiversary Doreen!!

Maggi said...

Congratulations on six years of blogging. Look forward to seeing many more.

Congratulations on your Blogiversary Doreen - I forget mine as well and I still can't cut and paste!
I hope to see "Quartet" - it must be good if Maggie Smith is in it, and I enjoyed "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" which got my double award for having Judi Dench in it too. They are both amazing actresses and never disappoint. Hope your washing dries - I can't remember the last time I could put any out. We've had enough rain to last a very long time.

Well done Doreen, It has been a pleasure to follow you on your blog and also to meet in person.
Your stitching is always beautifully done and it is important to make the time for it. Good luck

You had ne searching through my blogs to find my start date Doreen - 5 years ago on 13 Feb. I remember ringing you for help to get me going, and what a time together we have had since then. I love reading your blogs, sorry I did not catch up with your blog about the storm, it must have been a humdinger. Cheers

I'm very glad you decided to start a blog way back in 2007 because I got to "meet" you and see all your gorgeous art. Happy Blog Anniversary and here's to many more years of blogging!!!

Congratulations on starting & keeping up your blog all this time - I think I started not very long before you & I remember you were always very supportive. All the best for the future.

Six years - such a lot has happened during those years. I am pleased to read that you are going to be doing some creating this year. I am so far behind with blogging and creating and everything else.

The films sound good. We never (ever) go to the movies but we can watch on tv or borrow dvds.

I am so pleased you started blogging.
