My 2nd Blogging anniversary

I can hardly believe that it is 2 years since I first began blogging. I had only been retired for about 7 months and initially thought that my blog would be a diary of sorts but it hasn't quite worked out that way.

So much has happened in the last 2 years too. I have had some wonderful holidays - to Australia (twice) to see my family, to India, visiting the Taj Mahal and more recently to Alaska and Canada seeing some wonderful scenery including the beautiful Rockies.

I have a new grandson, Matthew, who is now nearly 2 years old. He lives in Australia and he was part of the reason for one of my trips there.

Last year we finally managed to sell our house and moved into our present home on the coast.

I had no idea either that I would be "meeting" so many new people and making so many blogging friends. I have enjoyed it all so much even if I don't post as much as I would like. It has been a great experience for me as I am actually quite a shy person and tend to keep myself to myself. So I'd like to thank everyone who looks in at my blog from time to time and leaves such warm and generous comments - I really do appreciate it.

Congratulations Anne, that's absolutely lovely! You've got a great blog, one I truly enjoy visiting. It's like coming over for a nice cup of tea with a friend, and your new header is so delicious looking. With that tea may I have a slice of that bread and jam please? To heck with being good! Here's to the next couple of years of blogging, may it be as fun for you as the past two :)

Loved that door stop of the bread butter and jam... I could taste it and now am battling not to go and cut myself a wedge and spread the butter and jam so thick it would leave teeth marks!!
