1 October 2013 – Some Anniversaries, and Jessica


The first day of October is usually an active one for me.  Tuesday was the tenth anniversary of my becoming a part timer before winding down and retiring.  It’s also the sixth anniversary of the start of these pages in 2007.

This year all I could manage was a local, flat, ten mile bike ride.  That was ten miles more than I’d have managed a couple of weeks earlier.  Hopefully I’ll return to the hills during October.

I’d hoped to post a photo of newly born granddaughter Jessica with her mum and dad, but they seem to be camera shy at present, so step-grandma and big brother will have to do for the time being.

Sweeties… all of them!


PS And it seems I now have 100 ‘Followers’, thanks to Conrad, who has actually been following the blog for a while. Only a small proportion of those ‘Followers’ do actually regularly look at the blog, though I know there are a few other ‘anonymous’ readers.

Google reckons the blog has enjoyed around 322,000 page views in those six years, whereas Statcounter has ‘counted’ just 236,000.  Who knows which is correct. July 2013, whilst I fumbled with postings from the Pyrenees, seems to have produced a peak in the readership.

Whatever the hits number are Martin, well done and much deserved.
Always a pleasure to come here for a read.

Agreed, the numbers are irrelevant. I just have a 'Gaylesque' attraction to statistics.
Looking forward to a chinwag on Sunday...

Here's to the next 6 years - keep the posts coming.

Thanks Conrad. As you know, it's really just an indulgence - and a bit quiet whilst I've not been able to get out much. There is other exciting stuff on the go though...
