Thank you to everyone who comments on my blog posts, it is greatly appreciated. I always intend to respond to your comments, but somehow I just dont seem to have the time, I already spend far more time here in Blogland and on Facebook than I guess I should. So, tell me, if you make a comment on my blog, do you ever go back later to see if I've responded? I know I sometimes do, but not that often if I'm honest. I try to comment on a few blogs each day, and if I haven't commented on yours in a while, please accept my apologies, I really do read practically all the posts on practically all of the blogs I follow, so that's quite a lot of reading to be done!
Anyhow, for those of you who take the time to comment on my blogs, I just want you to know I appreciate it, thank you. And I think I'll try, maybe once a week or thereabouts, to reply to your comments on a separate blog post. This is it.
I'm starting on 1st January 2014, and on that day 9 of you were kind enough to comment, to respond to each of you would take a while, so just a quick thanks to all. I really love living in Wiltshire, and even after 5 years here we are still discovering new and lovely places to see and snap. Plus I'm a photoholic so sharing my photos on my blog is a good way for me to make use of them.
On 2nd Jan there were 7 comments about my studio. I spent three whole days between Christmas and New Year giving it a complete blitz. With some help from GM I moved the furniture and equipment around to give me more space, I tidied a lot of stuff that just seemed to be lying around, I reorganised, I cleaned, I threw away some rubbish, I bagged up some stuff for charity shops, and I ended up with a lovely calming space, which I now intend to keep clean, tidy and clutter-free. I do appreciate that I am extremely lucky to have such a great space of my own, I look at it as my reward for raising 4 sons over the course of the last 43+ years while never having anywhere of my own and having to tuck all my stuff in wherever I could find some space. When GM and I were house-hunting back in 2011 one of our highest priorities was to find a house where we could each have our own space without having to sacrifice it when we had family or guests to stay, so now I have my studio and he has his office and we are both happy bunnies.
Yesterday I blogged twice, here and here with 3 comments and 4 comments respectively. I've been a classical music fan for about 12 years now and I really enjoy it when I find something on TV that I can record and then watch at my leisure. And, yes, it was raining outside (as if that's something that's only happening here! I know you're all suffering, wherever you are on this little island of ours, so I'm not going to focus on it any more, nuff said!)
This will be my only blog post for today, so here is picture number 4 of my 365 things to be grateful for, my super-duper kitchen.
As mentioned before, thank you for commenting on my blog, please accept my apologies for not responding individually to your comments, but be assured that I read and appreciate every single one.
Have a great weekend, whatever you are doing and whatever the weather.
