Wow – an exciting EIGHT candles on my cake.

Beautiful, aren’t they? Enough candles to make the cake appear full and luminous, enough years to have reached a point of some reflections on growth and what has been learned along the way.

In case you’re scratching your head in confusion, I am obviously not speaking about my age (that would require FAR more candles, and quite possibly a well-equipped fire brigade), but my blogging history.

It’s been eight years since I began blogging about writing, reading and travel, and it’s been quite a ride.

A happy blogging birthday to me – and thanks to all who have joined me on this (enjoyable) journey.
