First post on my new blog!

Well here goes ....... It's a Saturday afternoon and I've been sitting creating my blog. A year ago, I would never have imagined I would be doing this. The first time I ever posted on any blog was probably less than 6 months ago. More recently, I've been part of a group that comment regularly on a site belonging to a very special person - you know who you are! That entire group mean so much to me and have heard the highs and the lows of my recent life - including the catalyst for me looking to change my life plan. I've also enjoyed posting on a few other sites.
So this is a big step in my PLAN A. I don't know how many people will drop by but I certainly hope that some of my old friends from other sites will do so. And hopefully a few new friends too.
I had probably hoped to leave some wise words in this post - but it just isn't happening for me. So, I'll leave it at that!

Having found you through my own blog rather than the other one you refer to, I don't have any idea of your background. However, I do know all about life changes an major upheavals, so I hope you'll fill in a bit of back story as you develop your blog :)

Hey when I read that you'd started your own blog, I rushed over to see if I could be the first person to leave a comment, like you were on mine. But it appears your far more popular than I was...

Anyway I look forward to reading more and good luck fellow blogger!

Kim Ayres - it's difficult to know how much to put up front to begin with - but I do hope to say a bit more as the blog goes on. Thanks for looking in.

Bloggingjames - thanks for rushing over. Let's keep in touch.

MWK - good afternoon and thanks for your comments. The weekend has been different because I got this started. It just came over me yesterday to get on and do it!

Sammie - thanks - it's good to hear from you. I do hope PLAN A turns out to be something!

eg(scotland) said...

Cheers Caroline. Sounds like you had one heck of a night. We must catch-up sometime. Let's keep in touch re June meet. Susan is still up for it - just heard from her a little while ago.



Eryl Shields said...

Hello, I hope you find you enjoy blogging as much as I do. Can't wait to hear (read) more about your major upheavals.

Susan S said...

Well done you! Welcome to the dark side! I love the look of your site - gorgeous shot of the eagle!

Praying that you will be inspired with your Plan A - you will find the path that you are meant to be on and it will be so much more satisfying than the one you'd have taken if you'd got it!

Thanks for being such a great friend!

Huggles, Susan <><

hazel love said...

Oh eg, you have NO idea what you are letting yourself in Susan said, welcome to the dark side!

...and for me, another reason to not get on with my work first thing in the morning...

Enjoy, eg (Scotland) the Brave!

Ta Da!
You done it.... I would have posted earlier, but I've been away.... In Paris pour La Jour. It was wonderful, but I had to stay in bed all day yesterday to recover from it. I really will desperately try and update my blog so that you can see how I got on!
Was Wonderful.
First Blog is fabby. Looking forward to reading the rest.
This is my birthday today.... I decided to go back this year, I'm an odd number this year, and I'm not fond of odd numbers, so I didn't like stay the same age, and I wasn't going up, so I'm going today, I'm officially 3 years younger than I am. ha ha ha

Francesca said...

good grief! you are popular. I, like bloggingjames, though i was going to be magnanimous and be one of your first posters...but alas, i'm only, what 8? 9? oh my word! only freaking 12!
congratulations to you on an excellent start!

eg(scotland) said...

Eryl Shields - thanks so much for popping in. Look forward to reading your blog.

Susan S - so good to hear from you. I do feel there is a path for me - I just need to find it.

Hazel Love - hiya. Wow - the dark side? That's so not been me in the past.

DWNB - look forward to hearing about Paris trip. On age - yeah, count back.

Francesca - glad you came over the pond. It was your comment on your blog about me not having one that kicked me into action.

Cheers all.
