“Happy birthday to ABBA,
Squashed tomatoes and, er, blubber...”
Yes, today is our first birthday and we are delighted that you could join us! There will be a whole heap of guest blogs and interesting chat to enjoy throughout the day, so do keep popping in!
You will notice a virtual birthday cake at the top right of the screen – do please help yourself to a slice. It has no calories! Truly, a perfect cake (many thanks to Penny and Damian for baking it).
There is also a guest book just below the cake. If you want to leave a birthday message in the book, please feel free. Then we can arrange them all on our virtual mantelpiece when we get home.
We are also having a mammoth book giveaway today. What a good party this is already! You turn up and the host is giving out the presents! So do take a look at the next post which is all about that.
Thank you for coming to our party, and thank you for all your support, kind words, healthy debate and downright disagreements over the past twelve months. It has been an awfully big blog adventure and long may it continue!
