20200101_012615 Happy B’day this week, Tim”.

The end of another year (don’t worry next week will be back to normal moaning about life in the capital) this gives me a chance to look back at how this blog has during 2019.  I won’t lie, due to stuffing my face with food and drink for the last 10 days; I really don’t have much in the way of content.  During 2019 the blog got a total number of 2536 views, that’s 764 more than 2018.  These visits were from 41 countries, which is an increase of 12 on the previous year.  The pressure is on for 2020, can I get 2700 views.


I have produced a blog every week for 289 weeks.  Usually this consists of 800 to 900 words (which I realise is not very impressive, but you have to remember I lead boring life, so there’s not a lot to work with!  Plus, I have to be proud of something!).  The entertainment lists at the very bottom adds a few hundred extra word (It’s all content!) but I am aware that these are only of interest to me and possibility a couple of other people who never leave their bedrooms (these lists take so long to complied and type up.  Have a look you might find it interesting……. probably not!).

I have said several times before, I consider this blog to be a weekly time capsule for my young ** niece and nephews.  One day they might like to read about what they’re mad, lardy aunty got up to when they were small.

In conclusion, it’s been a good year for this ramble; hopefully I will be able to continue to produce something for you to read on a weekly basis in 2020.  Which as always, I can’t promise will be interesting, but I’ll try!  Thank you for reading this, whether it’s your first visit, or you’re a regular offender.  When I notice that the stats have increased it does make me feel that this is worth it.


Happy New Year.
