(Belated) Happy birthday, little blog!

(One day late, because my iPhone couldn’t connect properly on the train. And I was away all weekend)

Anyways, happy birthday, little blog! When I started you four years ago, I had no idea that I’d still be blogging now. The girl who struggled to keep a journal for more than a few weeks (I have countless notebooks in my room at home, filled dutifully with noted from Januarys or Septembers, which then peter out after a month, tops) seems finally to have found her outlet.

Here’s to the next four!


Another lovely weekend away with Matthew – this time up to Newcastle. Snow and wine and meals and football and the longest sleep I have had in a long time (11 hours!). It’s good to be on winter vacation.

Today, lots of housewifery approaches. We are having friends over for drinks and snacks tomorrow evening (where exactly we are going to put them, I’m not sure! Our house is pretty small! Ah well, it’ll be cosy), so I need to tidy up the house, and make some cakes and stuff for that too.


Lots of review posts coming up over the next few days – 2009 has been a busy year! A year of changing jobs, moving homes, and falling in love. And now 2010 is just around the corner. I for one cannot wait to see what is around the corner for me and my friends. And all my blog buddies, of course!


It’s Christmas on Friday. Who else is excited?


Right, time to get dressed, go do battle with the post office and the store, and then hit the chores. Have a lovely Monday, all!

    Happy birthday to your blog!I am so the same way about journalling as you. I have tonnes of half-filled diaries from my youth, many of which with 2 year gaps. And then somehow, I am able to keep up a blog for years on end!Also, the awesome friendships that I've developed through blogging are so amazing and unexpected! I'm sure you never expected when you started this thing that you'd gain a Cdn-summer visitor!Happy blogoversary and enjoy your day of housewifery!
