I decided last week that I wanted to open up the blog, on a Thursday, to all my lovely virtual friends.
My first dilemma. What to call it?
I’ve always seen my blog as my virtual home, a place to greet and meet and have conversations about all sorts of things. After putting a call out for inspiration on Facebook, ‘Open House’ sprang to mind. Because it’s my home and you are all welcome inside.
I may be kind of within the ‘simple living’ genre for my blogging, but a variety of topics appear here.
Recently I’ve wanted to converse more, rather than just post my thoughts. The more time I spend on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest the more I want to hear about your lives – both virtual and in-real-life. There’s so much out there to learn about, hear about, laugh about.
It’s a short and sweet one today as I want to pass the ‘talking pillow’ over to you
(Could not resist a Breaking Bad reference).
3 things from me today:
2. A friend of mine, and a frequent visitor here, Clare has started blogging once more. Why not go by and say ‘Hi’. Clare’s lovely. Really lovely.
3. And finally I’m a little bit cheesed off today. Every few Thursdays or so I take my Mom for our pilgrimage to TK Maxx. Now, I’m no shopper, but TK Maxx hits the spot every time. Great unusual non-run-of-the-mill products, displayed in creative ways with fabulous prices. I picked up an amazing winter hat for just £7.99. It would appear it didn’t make it through the scanner and into my bag. Oh boy! Gutted! At least I didn’t lose it on the way to the car, but still – it’s my loss. My other purchases (of which there were 2) are over on Instagram.
So imagine yourself coffee (or tea) in hand sitting at my kitchen table. What shall we talk about next?
Feel free to share anything. Links from things you’ve read, blog posts you have written, anecdotes from your week – anything goes! Knock yourself out (not literally of course!)
