1,000 Glorious Postings.



Yes, this is my 1000th posting on this particular blog, and what larks, eh?

As with so many bloggers, this site was conceived to keep my children informed about what was going on in 'Mummy and Daddy's' lives. Of course, they've never really been interested in all our frippery; they have much more important things to concern them than reading about Cro's veg' growing, our chicken's laying habits, or the price of belly pork.

So, may I take this opportunity to thank everyone who's visited, everyone who's clicked the 'Join this site' button, and everyone who's ever left a comment. Believe me, you have all been greatly appreciated.

In case any of you don't know what Cro looks like; or, indeed, in case my children have forgotten.... that's me above (I hope it doesn't put you off).

Happy Millennium to me. Pop, fizzzzzz, glurg, glurg, glurg. Here's to the next 1,000.

  4. Congratulations! You're part of my daily routine - get up, put the kettle on, eat breakfast, read Magnon's Meanderings. If Cro's written his blog then I know all is well with the world.

  25. I'm a newbie. Can't even remember how I got here. If I could, I'd send them a big "thank you!" Like the others, there are certain blogs that start my day, or rather get it off on the right foot, and yours is one of them.

    I love you because you adopted Bok.

  29. Wow! Cro that's impressive! We went up to Chirk to the car boot this morning. I thought about you as we passed Moreton Hall. Wonder if any of your former pupils read your blog. It's a small world.
