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…
