I love writing.
This blog started as a place for me to write whatever came into my head … and that hasn’t stopped.
In the first year or so I had about 250 to 300 hits a month … now that’s what I can get in a day sometimes.
It’s not the end of August yet and I just checked the stats for the month … the highest ever in the history of Liz Biz … 4,007 … and rising.
Thanks folks … for visiting … for reading … for commenting.
A number of my international readers have become friends … and that delights me.
I know some of my family read the blog regularly … hi Dad … hi Siobhain … hi Marc.
And the people of Ballinamore … and their relatives and friends everywhere … read this old thing … thanks so much.
I still love writing this blog … and will stop when it feels like a chore.
In some ways it’s become a kind of journal for me to look back on in my older age … which I think is lurking around next week!
I love documenting events and seasons in Ballinamore … a small town that seems to always have something going on.
And in a few hours my dear friend Mary will be visiting from Oz (we are sooo not in Kansas anymore Dorothy) … and I think I’ll have to light a fire.
And it’s still summer … sob.
In anticipation of Mary’s visit I have been cleaning and tidying the cottage all week … a few hours here and there … really don’t love doing it.
The place is looking much better … although she’ll probably walk in and offer to help me clean it! She’s a tidy tidy tidy person … and I love her.
Still got a few things to do so will pop away.
Just wanted to say thanks for reading.
