I am 3....

Today is my 3 year blogaversary! It has gone so quickly and yet over the time I have learnt so much and met so many wonderful people, both virtually and in real life. It is really hard to remember what life was life before blogging LOL.

It is strange to think that when I started this little blog it was really aimed at friends and family back home so they could see what was going on with our lives, how Ebi-kun was growing and the building of the new house, 3 years on it is so much more than that, the sewing, the crafts, my love of Montessori and of course the waffle about living in Japan, the blog has grown and I feel I have too.

I have never been one of those people who were good at keeping a diary, I would manage a week or maybe two then it would fizzle out so I have surprised myself by keeping this going, of course having all your lovely comments and words of support are a big boost and I thank you all for stopping by and taking the time to read, answer my questions, give advice and share your own stories, it really does mean a lot to me.

And so, starting from tomorrow I will be having a week long celebration of giveaways, my blog, is as the title states, is a bit of this and a bit of that and so there will be giveaways for everyone, no matter why you drop by, there will something suitable for you - unless you are only really into quantum physics and cooking fish, in which case you will be out of luck. Plus tomorrow there will be a BIG announcement......

Now, please raise your class of your favourite tipple and join me in a round of 'Happy Bloggaverasy to me'

  2. Darn it! I'm really looking for more information about cooking fish while using quantum physics. :(

    Happy Bloggiversary!!!!

  3. Happy blogiversary Jo! Your blog was one of the first ones I found when I started venturing out from family and friend blogs several years ago. I can't believe it's been that long. Great job with the blog, the shop, and with Ebi-kun. Your posts are inspiring. Can't wait to see what this week brings.

    I too am loving your little fiesta banner. :)

  10. thank you for all your lovely comments, I am sure if I never got any comments I would have given up ages ago!

  11. Congratulations Jo!

    Yours was one of the first blogs I started to read regularly and it's even more relevant for me now that I have an active little boy too!

    I too am disappointed in the lack of quantum physics though...
