four years on

a yellow ladybug

Four years on this is my six hundred and eighty-eighth post. Today is my bloggy-versary. Born on a sleepless night as a whim, I had no idea where this bloggy journey was going to take me. Little did I know the people I would meet, the connections I would make and the skills I would acquire. It has been a magnificent surprise and a wonderful ride.

To celebrate I’d like to have a little giveaway. The prize? Well that is a surprise and won’t actually be determined until I know how wins (chosen randomly). So… if you’re up for a surprise, just as I was when I started this blog, then leave a comment on this post (with a means of me contacting you if you’re the lucky winner). Competition open to anyone, anywhere… just leave a comment on this post.

So thanks to you, my dear reader, for hanging in with me on this … (cliche alert) *gag* journey! May we continue to hangout together in this little space for some time to come.
