Post No. 500

Well I've reached my 500th post...quite a milestone! 

This post really ought to be a significant one...something special to celebrate having got this far with my blog.   However, those of you who have followed me for a while will know that I don't really do "special"...I just do me and my life..the things that happen that make me happy, sad, frustrated, angry...and many other emotions too.

I'm still amazed that anyone would really want to read my ramblings, but a big thankyou to those of you who do!

I've nothing much to write about today, other than to say that life isn't too bad at the moment.  In some respects it could be better, but overall I'm feeling more optimistic about the future than I have for a long time. I'm just happy to be spending some time here in England with my family, and thankful that I have two healthy grandsons and a daughter who has turned into the best mother any child could have.

Thanks again to all my followers,and here's hoping I can manage another 500!


  1. Congrats on reaching 500! Here's to the next 500! I'll be reading.

  2. I was hoping you would reveal the name of a celebrity who has a super injunction in force for your 500th!

    Glad things are looking up.

  3. I've just popped the champaign bottle! Scared the cats too!

  4. 'Cross the Pond: Thankyou xx

    Jack: You mean there are actually celebrities who HAVEN'T got super-injunctions in force? :-)
    Thankyou xx

    Nomad: Poor cats! Save some of that champagne for me!!

  5. Congratulations, Ayak. People read you because you are 'real', you don't pretend, make things up and put on 'airs', as some Bloggers do. That's why people stick around.

    And thoroughly enjoy those lovely Grandchildren, they'll be grown up in the blink of an eye!
