It's hard to think that three years have slipped by since I was persuaded to join Blipfoto during a family meal with D77, and casually blipped my plate of mussels with my I-Phone
Little did I know back then that I was signing up to a site where my addictive personality would be given full reign and where I would document my life every single day for the next 1097 days.
Little did I know then to what extent it would take over my life and how many social connections I would make along the way with friendships being formed over the airwaves and in person.
In my anniversary Oscar blog let me pay thanks to Blipcentral , their interest, encouragement, technical wizardry, and in providing me with the means of having my blips bound in beautiful journals which I will leave to posterity in the hope that someone down the genealogical line will find it interesting enough to read about the life of a woman at the turn of the century. Pause for audience applause.
I would also like to thank my subscribers for reading my musings and bothering to comment day in day out. Also to the friends who aren't Blippers but who nevertheless look at my blips and read my blogs. You know who you are.
A toast from me.
My final vote of thanks is to His Lordship for his unstinting support, albeit peppered now and again with rich language when I linger too long with my camera.
But more often than not, I am guided by his advice on the choice of blips.
Pause for an outpouring of emotion with tears and wavering voice.
I send all of you a crumb from my anniversary cake with it's cholesterol enhancing filling of cream and strawberries.
I accept no responsibility for any resulting heart attacks or strokes.
