Well, I have been so busy dealing with my children’s chickenpox that I let my own blogging birthday slide without noticing. Motherhood, eh?
But it turns out I ignited Little Lewes one year and four days ago, on June 1st 2013, with the post ‘Welcome, hoped-for readers‘. It received a tiny but appreciated applause on Twitter as ‘a good idea’. This spurred me on.
Since then I have dabbled with weekly listings, nearly been killed by the world’s biggest school holiday clubs post, and have been moved by my readers’ support and comments as I de-friended Facebook (and as a consequence many of them too) just last week.
Throughout all this, Little Lewes has helped me see, through the eyes of my kids, the best of my town, even in the moments when I find it excruciatingly small and frustrating (in size and mind – forgive me this please, I grew up in a big city). And it has made me some valued new friends.
Anyway, to celebrate this little milestone, here are my six favourite posts of the past year (click on the pictures to be taken to the post) – and why I’ve chosen them.
And that’s me off for a birthday tea party with these guys…

Happy birthday to Little Lewes — and its stars, both big and small — from the samurai of Japan. As a mighty warrior once said to me, “In springtime, the cherry blossom lands on a raindrop, but come summer, the nightingale sits upon a sword.” What this means, nobody knows.
Thank you for making the birthday blogger smile and the unknowable birthday quote Samurai Charlie! It will be relayed to the big star! xxx
