Happy 700!


This post, right here, is my 700th hundred post on The Daze of My Life! 700! Wowsers! That's a lot of waffling.

700 posts ago, I could never have imagined where this little space would take me. I thought I'd practice my writing, get bored and forget about it. Yet, here I am! I've met so many people, been to some really fun events, got to do some fabulous things, all because I write whatever is in my head here five days a week.

I've also learnt a lot about myself. I've gained confidence. I've discovered the very best hobby in the whole world.

It's made the lonely business of being a stay-at-home mum not so lonely. It's allowed me to keep a little piece of myself for myself. I can express myself, vent, be creative, whatever the hell I want right here.

I've discovered that I'm not the only person who has non-sleeping kids. I've discovered people who love love the things I do (champagne, pork, duck, gin, music, TV). I've discovered people who see the world in the same way I do. I've re-kindled friendships. I've befriended people on the other side of the globe. I've had people laugh with me, cheer me on and give me support. I've had people celebrate with me and commiserate with me. I have people check in with me.

I've test driven cars, been sent chocolate, beauty products, books and more. I've been invited to lunches and cocktail parties.

Best of all, I've found  a lovely bunch of people who turn up here every day, just to say hello and read my mutterings. Sometimes they comment and make my day.

These 700 posts have enriched my life. So thank you for taking a moment out of your day to visit, you have no idea how much it means to me.

Here's to 7000 more!
