Malcolm actually started the blog. He chose a layout, thought of the name and did the very first post. She lay dormant for a while, we were still in S.A and life was full and busy. The point of the blog was really a way to stay in touch with family and friends and I did a couple of posts about our move.
When we got to Ireland it was summer and we had some time on our hands, especially as we were not used to it being light so late and light so early, ha ha. I started fiddling, changing the layout and posting my news. I was having fun, unfortunately it is also a one way communication and I got a bit despondent after a while.
Next thing to happen was that K’s school principal was nominated for a net visionary award and we were all encouraged to vote. As a good girl who follows the rules and some instructions, if presented in a way I like, I obliged and logged on to the website to have my say. That is when I found Grandad. His blog had been nominated and I decided to have a look, I read a few posts, I encouraged Malcolm to read a few posts. Malcolm and I laughed so hard at one we cried.
I started looking at some other blogs, and now my day is not complete without taking a peak to see what is going on in their worlds. I have found a community, a place to go with a cup of coffee to get inspired to go into my kitchen, laugh, agree, feel young again and learn a few interesting things about shopping, clothes, plumbing, the Irish, free range chickens etc. My blog is still for my family and friends but now it is also so much more too.
Thanks guys and gals, I think by now you all know who you are!
