My little bit of this big World

Saturday 21 May 2022


 This is my 2000th post, I started this blog, way back in February 2009, Just a simple post, my eldest daughter helped me to start, who knew it would still be going 13 years later.

Somerset House, it was the story of my dolls house, I no longer have the house, but I do have a few miniatures around my office, just small rooms. I have left this blog open, as I do like to look back on everything I made. As with all my crafts, I changed so much on the build of the house. 

One day in the lens was to record my photos and the course we did on how to get the best from our cameras. This is the smallest of my blogs, I did hope to keep it going with just 1 photo a day, but Instagram has taken on that role, which sadly I still don't post every day. 

I have 10 blog books, the first 2 years are in one book, I have not printed 2020 or 2021, I do hope to have them sorted this year, I was going to stop at 2020, but world events changed my mind, and I will print a few more years, it is hard work, but it's fun. 

I still love blogging and bloggers, we are an interesting group, so many subjects to follow, my blog has always been about family, craft and gardening, each post has labels, so I can look back to see how things started, changed, I also love to look back on our grand children, 8 boys and Molly. The topics have stayed the same but my knowledge and outlook has changed. Being retired has also changed me, I was dreading having so much time, but in truth I am loving life, more time for all my passions. 

Thank for your good wishes for George, he came home on Friday, daughter has a phone number to call our local hospital department direct if he starts going blue again, this would bypass A&E and get him the best treatment quicker. Hopefully he will have his follow up appointment soon to see if his tonsils need removing, it so good to see him smile again. We are planning a very quiet weekend at home together. 


  1. Congratulations! You are one of the most regular bloggers whom I read.

  2. So sorry to hear that George has not been well, poor little chap, but glad to hear he's back home with help at the end of the telephone.
