Thank you…

Today we had planned to visit the Vide Jardin at Faye la Vineuse, but the weather forecast has put us off. We’ve become fair weather ‘goer outers’, especially now that we have more time to go out. As is often the case, the weather will probably clear and we shall have missed a real treat!

When I opened the blog this morning I noticed that I had just passed the 100,000 views. It was, in fact, 100,002, but Tim was able to work his magic to turn back the clock! I know that in comparison to other blogs I read this is but a mere drop in a very large ocean, but it is my drop.

10-000

I think the time has probably come for a much needed and long overdue revamp. You’ll notice that although I retired nine months ago my profile doesn’t reflect this, so reaching this milestone will lead to a rethink.

Thank you to everyone who has read and commented over the past four years. The blog has led to us meeting and becoming friends (both actual and virtual) with some really interesting, knowledgeable, caring and helpful people. Spending time with them (or you!) has made our new lives here so much richer than we ever hoped that it might be. There is never a dull moment and we value their (your) support and friendship.

I’ve written a couple of times that blogging is a bit like ‘Wikipedia, but with soul’ and I stand by this.
