Its my Blogiversary!!!!! Yippeee!! Time to party!

Well, actually if I'm completely honest, it isn't my Blogiversary until Saturday but as most of you have lives to lead and things to do at the weekend, I don't get too many visitors then and so thought I'd go with today instead!!!

My goodness what a year it's been!!!  Chick has grown from this:

to this:

The only thing that hasn't changed is her messy hair!!!

We've been to Norfolk, London, Derbyshire, Norfolk again, Birmingham, SkegVegas, London (again......many times!!!) and also to the other side of the world:

We've seen Tom Jones (in my early WordPress days) and Kasabian and I also sold a good portion of my soul to the devil in exchange for Miley Cyrus tickets for Chick for Christmas!!!

I've written posts about:

I've also been lucky enough to interview:

Without fail, one of the best things about this year has been the new friends that I've made. Quite ironic that someone who hates Internet dating with a passion has found a good few new best friends through this internet lark.  I love that it gives me an extra connection to my American Mom in California and Nelly in Australia without whom my life would be much poorer!!!  I also need to say a huge thank you to you....yes whoever you are reading's because of you and your support and comments that I feel validated enough to carry on!!  Here's to the next year or ten!!!

Now I've finished being all soppy, the last thing for me to say is stop by tomorrow for some prize giveaways and help me celebrate my first anniversary in the Blogosphere!!!!
