My 150th Post!

20 Apr

What a milestone! My 150th post!

Doesn’t seem long ago that my 100th saw the light of day, and from that, my first follower, Jennifer Avventura, came into my life. Since then, other bloggers have joined her ranks, some leaving lovely comments.

Between then and now, life has had its ups and downs.

The chief apex is, in terms of satisfaction, the publication of our sixth book, ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’, which was released last week, on the 11th April. Even the cover has special significance since my husband, Ronald Sharp B.E.M. took the beach photo that forms its basis on the eve of our wedding anniversary. A day to remember!

Another happy event came from an unexpected source: my blog found its way onto Jennifer Avventura’s list of nominees for ‘The Versatile Blogger Award’. I must admit, I’m more than a little unclear if this is an honour or not! Why is Jennifer passing it on so readily?!

The downside to our life has probably been the closure of our local river baths due to pollution, initially caused by torrential rain. Our Swimming Club cancelled all meeting from the end of February, and, with more heavy rain over the past few days, the problem seems no closer to resolution. I guess if and when it’s all fixed and clean, we’ll really appreciate it.

So, here we are on a Friday night, and I’m signing off.

150 posts down, who knows how many to go?
