A new year, a new start. Onwards :)

Happy new year indeed to everyone.

I’ve seen my ‘report’ come through from word press on my blog. It’s always really interesting to see how many people have viewed your site over the year.

I’ve also seen lots of people publish theres. So here are some interesting facts about mine.

  • I started this blog in January of 2012. So it’s technically 2 year old. Although it has posts now going back to 1994.  I posted for a couple of months but then stopped, only really starting up again in Oct of that year. I had 3,791 views.

  • My best ever viewing was 248 in one day, in Oct 2012 when I started back up again. I think this was due to posting all my blogs from other websites. Must have been interesting.

  • In 2013 I’ve had 6,091 almost double the views. With the most views being on Jan 1st at 113 and that was also my most successful month at 1,186 views. I am going to have to try and emulate that one this year.

  • I also have 565 comments, and viewers from 68 countries. 

These are great statistics, and I wouldn’t be here without all of you, so thanks. I’m very pleased, and I hope my blog does continue to grow. Along with the wonderful friends I’ve made along the way.

2014 is going to be a wonderful year. I’m very honoured to share it with you all.

Hello :)

Well there is light at the end of the flu tunnel. I did make it out on Xmas day for a little while, but it knocked me for six yesterday and I spent it all in bed again. 


There is nothing worse than being ill, and wanting to do things. Then when I was up and ready to take on the world. Skype wouldn’t work and that sucked. Don’t have a clue why. 

Anyway, slept a lot again today and am tired, but have been catching up on some things. Mostly cleaning and getting to grips with things. I haven’t even ventured to see my fish in 7 days. And that is not like me at all. I love my koi so much, but when I am unwell I can’t help but not go to see them in the freezing cold. Luckily hubby has looked after them and kept on top of feeding my sturgeon.

Writing, well have only done my homework, requested by EJ, but today I managed to catch a few read throughs of chapters ahead. So, I’m hoping to be back on form this weekend and for the coming week.

The bad news for me, was after getting myself ready emotionally for going back to work on the 6th Jan, I got my wages and a letter saying they’d given me my accrued holidays, and don’t want me back till the 20th Jan. 😦 I am sad about this because I want to really get back into it all. And kicking the new year off back to work would have done me good.

Oh well, more time to get on with some editing. 🙂 Can’t complain at that.

Fingers crossed for the coming year for us all, I know some of my friends have had a really rough one. The last few months for me, have been pretty tough, but the light there, peeking back at me is fab.

2014 will be so much better.


Looking forward to a good start. What do you think you might get up too? Fill me in everyone, been away for a bit, and it’s a lot to catch up on. 🙂  

Speak soon.
