5 = 1000...............

 A few weeks ago I had something different much more upbeat planned for this post............especially when I realised that I was going to hit 1000 posts about the time of my 5th blog birthday (which have coincided).......

5 years ago I would never have thought I would have still been blogging and made the connections and friendships that I have "in real life" and "online".............but life takes unexpected twists and turns.......highs and lows..........some you see coming some you don't so all I want to say is thankyou for everything you have given/inspired/shared with me over the last 5 years..........
lets see whats happening in another 5 years and 1000 posts...............
THANKYOU
I was going to make something but you know my mojo is missing so I got a little parcel organised as a little thankyou for one of my readers...........
and thank you to a couple of girls who have out of the blue emailed me privately....
....thanks you know who you are...........and I am glad you emailed me.........
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  17. Gosh, I hadn't realized that you started blogging after me. It seems like blogging and Chookyblue go together. I think it was your blog which first alerted me to Nundle and how much fun it is. Keep up the great work and don't worry about the motivation - it will come back. ( I think yours and mine might be on a holiday together somewhere) Congratulations.

  18. THANKYOU to you - for creating the SAL blog and all your wonderful posts about cows and mud and all that - but also for the lovely flowers. I'll go looking for your mojo Chookyblue - I am sure you are lost without it!

  20. Congratulations Chooky on your 5years & 1000 posts. It is fun to hear of your farm antics, the hardwork, the animals, the life, as well as the sewing you fit into your busy days. If you hadn't started blogging we wouldn't have the SAL blog that brings happy times to so many of us & for that I am very thankful. Think your mojo & mine have gone on holiday together. Hope they have a great time but return soon! Tracee xx

  21. 1000 posts is five years is very impressive! In almost three years I've only managed to make just over 250.

    I hope you get your mojo back very soon. And here's wishing you another five years and 1000 posts.
