My 100th blog post

Tuesday Timeline



This is my 100th blog post and I was so excited about today that I bought myself some goodies. Nothing major, just some things I had 'Wishlisted' for too long that I forgot about them. Oops.


Here they are if you want a look:  butter dishcoffee scooptable runner, and tissue box covers.


In 100 postings what have I learnt?
  • I didn't expect to have any readers at all for the first year let alone the first month. Thanks Heidi and Maximus!
  • I've always loved reading blogs but I didn't expect to enjoy blogging myself. It's like a lock-and-key diary without the teen angst only with other people.
  • I've met so many women on my own blog and just 'following on' via other bloggers. I need to time myself on some days. Naughty.
  • I also need to expand my blog reading from my old favourites. I am quite surprised at some of my own blog choices this year.
  • I need to check my blog emails more often, like I do my house mailbox. Oops.
  • I've also become a little more relaxed at home and less the worrier. Especially with our toddler Tauren. No wonder I was exhausted.
  • Lastly, being part of an online community is just as rewarding as sitting with my best friends in my kitchen with a cup of coffee. I wonder why I hesitated for so long, silly me.
I should have posted this earlier but after tidying up the bedrooms this morning, there was a knock at the door and when my visitors left I forgot about my post. I then celebrated today with my two-year-old Tauren and the biggest chocolate donut I've ever seen. I had to cut that baby up and I don't know anyone who cuts up a donut before eating it. I showed him how to pick the sprinkles off and he thought it was the best thing ever. Priceless.

Today I really felt like wearing this cute pom pom hat from jerribeccahats. Alas, I've already bought myself some goodies so instead, I'm thinking of a friend who is to have her third daughter this year.
