Just want to say thanks

I didn't know what to expect after I pressed the publish button on my first blog just over a week ago.  I didn't expect the positive response and comments I have received and certainly didn't expect a world wide audience.  Thank you to all who have taken the time to read it.  I know I owe that to Sue, http://ournewlifeinthecountry.blogspot.co.uk/  for what she has done to acknowledge my little blog.  I am very grateful.  I often thought I was one of the very few people who is sick of, or who actually notices, how wastful as a society we have become, but Sue has opened up the doors and introduced me to like-minded people from whom I can learn from.

However, starting the blog didn't suddenly spring up overnight.  I have been carefully fermenting my ideas over a period of time but didn't have the nerve to broadcast them to the world. My inspiration came through being a regular reader of http://www.lifeonpigrow.co.uk/.  A blog that reflects the lives of Andrew and Carol Oldham, 'but will also bring together those groups and individuals involved in the pursuit of a sustainable lifestyle.' So whether you're a keen gardener, wannabe gardener (like me), interested in good wholesome cooking or anything eco-friendly then go and pay Andrew and Carol a visit.  I can guarantee that there will be something for everybody to enjoy and you'll soon be looking forward to your daily slice of Life on Pig Row as the wide range of topics covered offers sound practical advice that we could all benefit from.


  1. It is always good to find someone who thinks in the same way. We have been following this path for some years now, and have often been made to feel that we are the oddbods! I will go and look at the other blogs - and am glad to have found yours too.

  3. I started my first blog only a few months ago. It is scary hitting the 'publish' button for the first time, isn't it?
    Your little blog looks lovely, I'll be stopping in often. Keep it up! <3

  4. I think you'll find Blogging becomes part of your life ! Sue was one of the first commenters on my Blog & helped me out when I got hens & needed advice. It's a great community whatever your interests are. I visit many art & craft blogs & was inspired to join in !

  5. Glad to stumble on your blog right at the beginning. keep it up! blessings xx

  6. I agree with pomona..my family and my husbands seem to think we are having a crisis in our lives...we are not..i think that having 2 little girls later on in life has dramatically changed us..our older 3 girls think we are weird and our son who is still at home loves it..i like being different..and thanks to the blogging folks i realized we are not alone..its great..i read others blogs and think WOW i do that too...its just nice to have the blogging world at my fingertips for help and support if i need it..thats aimed at sue by the way...love ya.

  7. I'm so behind with commenting sorry.

    Thanks for the thanks!! I only highlighted what I found ... a brilliant little Blog written in a completely natural and friendly way by a person on the same wavelength of many of my friends (love ya too Sara, Fern and Iris). It's lovely to see how your Followers numbers have grown in so short a space of time.

    You have us captive and we will all be back.
