Blog Birthday

I am rather flabbergasted to realise that I've been talking at people for a whole year and yet I still have more to witter on about. Originally I set the blog up as a space for me to put all the things that catch my eye during the week but it's become more than that. I've rediscovered why I used to enjoy scribbling although I have to say the way my brain puts things together is a tad bizarre sometimes and it's been good for me to give myself the time to do that.

    Gnat Bottomed Towers (blog) is a total joy m'dear. A trip here never fails to inform or entertain me, often both.

    Happy Birthday GBT! I'll raise a glass of Crabbies later to this most momentous day. *ok, any excuse really* ;)

  3. Yay for blogging! It passes many a happy hour for me too. Happy Bloggyversary m'dear!
