well it's a year today since we stumbled into this sphere with the inauspicious words : welcome to boynton a blog....and what a journey it has been. boynton feels like she's been on the phone for a year... And she has. And what have we got to show for it, eh? RL has diminished. We have no friends. Dogs have been blogged senseless of copy. The only thing we've kind of learnt is less is more, today rules ok, break out of your cluster and although it's very dense there are enough lovely fishes out there to keep subscribing to the daily backward somersault into the blogosphere.
Happy Birfday toooo you... Happy Birfdayy tooo YOUUU .. Happy Birfdayyy dear Boyntonnnnn.. Happy birfday toooo youuuuu!

ah mercy boocoo, mr w.
et vous, wen... Not sure. I like the symmetry of stopping a year out. My year of the blog.
But chickened out of any such stat dec or even a little "hiatus" notification - they do have a way of biting one in the street - when one has a rethink. Still - one's other writing is suffering a tad, and we may see how we go.

Oddly enough, for some reason I found myself thinking yesterday "It must be about a year that Boynton's been blogging now". So there you go.
It's been a pleasure travelling through the blogo-verse with you Boynton. Here's to many more anniversaries.

and merci x 365 mcb - my first "blog buddy".
and Nick - what a lovely surprise indeed- and a great honour. So many lovely fishes in that pool!
I was meaning to post your latest thoughts on blogging, that is inspiration to keep going, and wrestle with the writerly combo. I will anon.
But as written already today over at mcb's - it's SUCH a beautiful sparkling day here, we're about to jump off - actually that is, we're about to "literally" HOP off and skip.

What a glorious event! And a perfect op to give thanks for all the cheer, as a visit to b makes the day feel complete.
