So, unbelievably, its a whole year since my first blogpost, in which I wondered aloud whether I was talking to myself (as usual). But I very soon was not, and I can honestly say its one of the best things I've ever done.
Connection, support, friendship, encouragement, inspiration, knowledge, a laugh, a cry, empathy, ideas, challenges, prizes (I've had a few wins!), generosity, warmth, and much much more.
And I really hope that some of these things are reciprocated when you visit my blog.
Of course, there are some downsides to it all - very irritating technical stuff around the actual process that does my head in!
Not for nothing does 'Blogger' sound like a swearword. I am often to be heard shouting 'Oh Blogger!!' when the photos don't upload in the right order, or at all, or just take three days to get there.
But all in all its a hoot!I've been making these wall pieces just recently and am really enjoying the process of mounting ceramic tiles/letters/shapes onto wooden boards to be hung on a wall.
My favourite is the second one, the traditional Gaelic Blessing, and so my Blogday wish for you all is :
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
