15 May

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who left a comment on yesterday’s post.  You have given us loads to work with, which is exactly what we need.

We aim to re-launch the website in September; I will update you when it happens so you can see the fruits of your labour.

I have the Number 1 readers in the blogosphere, and that’s a fact!

Secondly, if you happen to be in the London area this week, you can visit the Globe Theatre for £2.50!  I have lifted this from the Arts Council website because I think it should be shared:

Come and support Latin American theatre at Shakespeare’s Globe!

“Globe to Globe” is the innovative, ground breaking and jaw droppingly ambitious global theatre festival presenting all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 37 different languages!

Each day a new theatre company from around the world presents one of Shakespeare’s classics on the stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, Southbank. Not only is it hectic, innovative and brilliant fun but it is a truly unique opportunity to see the best of the world’s theatre and celebrate theatre and language in all its diversity. Anyone interested in theatre should come and see what the world is making. Anyone interested in language and global community should come and see what the world is saying.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we have “Henry IV Part 1 and 2” from Mexico and Argentina and we are making incredible ticket offers to see both these productions! Quote ‘PCDYARD241’ to get two tickets for £5, and get the best seats in the house for £10 for the Tuesday matinee by quoting “PCDMAT10”.

We have more to come this week from the Belarus Free Theatre, the National Theatre of Armenia, Georgia and Brazil. Watch this space: www.shakespearesglobe.com/globetoglobe

It’s part of the Olympic celebrations and a fabulous opportunity.  How I wish I lived nearer.  If you do go, please blog about it and I’ll try not to hate you.

Third on the agenda: I think school is a little more dangerous than it used to be, if this Manchester Realcycle request is anything to go by:

WANTED: Human Skull

Hi!  My son is in need of a human skull for an art project at college.  It can be real or artificial !  Can collect at your convenience.  Thank you.

I’m tempted to give her the Hub’s but he claims he’s still using it.

And lastly, an event so rare, my flabber was ghasted: I logged on to my site stats and there was a perfect number.  It’s the first time in [hang on; let me check.  I can’t remember how long I’ve been at this] three years of blogging that I have found a perfect number on my stats page, so I had to share it.  Has it ever happened to you?

And you made it happen.  Thank you!

    No. And who else has the perfect 180 thousand? Wow Tilly – congratulations!


    • Tilly Bud May 15, 2012 at 11:46 #

      Thanks! But it really was the round number that had me excited 🙂


  2. jmgoyder May 15, 2012 at 11:16 #

    Nobody except you would say, “my flabber was ghasted”! May I borrow this phrase? If you say yes I will always attribute it to you – it’s brilliant, as is this post!


  3. viveka May 15, 2012 at 11:20 #

    Congratulation …. you are some serious blogger – well done to you !!!!!!! Great post again.


  4. gigihawaii May 15, 2012 at 13:36 #

    You seem happy today, and no wonder! Congrats, Tilly.


  5. vivinfrance May 15, 2012 at 13:36 #

    Phe-nom-en-al. What a wonderful number. Well deserved. I visit you at least 3 times a day if not more! My ghast is often flabbered by you.


    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:13 #

      😀 If you are not the only one visiting three times a day, I am a fraud!

      It really was the round number that had me excited; not the total.


  6. laurieanichols May 15, 2012 at 14:11 #

    First congratulations on your impressive number, 180 as a number is important mathematically and now it really is! I often get my flabber ghasted, that will be stuck in my head for a while.


  7. kiwidutch May 15, 2012 at 14:15 #

    You are most welcome and I look forward to seeing the re-vamped website 🙂

    One small suggestion? … maybe make a few screen shots of the site as it is now so that readers can see “before”and “after” views.

    Thanks wonderful and well deserved! Congratulations!


  9. sarsm May 15, 2012 at 15:04 #

  10. SidevieW May 15, 2012 at 16:40 #

    gosh, but your readership is huge!


  11. judithatwood May 15, 2012 at 17:16 #

    180,000 Wah-Hooooo! That is a nice round number — good for you!

    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:29 #

      It is like a full time job, believe me 🙂


      • jamieonline May 16, 2012 at 17:15 #

        I can’t do more blogging than I already do…. I will wear myself out. :))


        • Tilly Bud May 17, 2012 at 11:29 #

          Believe it or not, I reduced my blogging…


          • jamieonline May 19, 2012 at 17:24 #

            Wow – I think I have reduced mine too – but so have the viewers… Oh hell….


  14. jamieonline May 15, 2012 at 19:00 #

    Have now added u onto my blog – in the widgety side bar!


  15. Tom (Aquatom1968) May 15, 2012 at 20:05 #

    Flippin’ ‘eck Tilly… you’ve even got 400 on your stats graph. I’m just bobbing along with 100… well done, by the way! 😀


  16. eof737 May 15, 2012 at 21:21 #

    Way to go Tilly! Keep up the good work and keep us laughing. Haven’t forgotten you as I make the alphabetical rounds. 😉


    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:33 #

      I appreciate that. I should have called this blog ‘A Laughing Housewife’. What was I thinking?! 🙂


  17. terry1954 May 15, 2012 at 22:20 #

    this is wonderful for you. congrats!!!


    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:35 #

      Thanks! But it’s the round number I like 🙂


  18. Viciously Sweet May 15, 2012 at 23:30 #

    Congratulations Tilly! I have never caught a fantastic even number on my blog! Also you make me wish I was in the London area… I’m so far away from the fun!


    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:38 #

      It took three years for it to happen to me, and I check in regularly.


  19. siggiofmaine May 16, 2012 at 05:02 #

    Your 180,000 is fantastic but I was more taken by how kind you are to let the Hub keep using his skull ! It is amazing what kids need for school work these days.
    Peace and love,
    Siggi in Downeast Maine


    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:41 #

      Bizarre, isn’t it? And I bet someone had one she could use 🙂


  20. grannymar May 16, 2012 at 09:38 #

    “my flabber was ghasted” – I am going to steal that! 😉


    • Tilly Bud May 16, 2012 at 09:41 #

      It always amazes me what readers like; it’s never what I think it’s going to be 🙂


  21. bluebee May 16, 2012 at 13:35 #

    Wow – that’s one humongous following that you have there, Tilly Bud. Advertisers, take note!


  22. parentsfriend May 16, 2012 at 16:26 #

    I’d hate you if I didn’t love you sooooo miuch. Grats on your views. I am envious, but trying to hide my green with kindness.


    • Tilly Bud May 17, 2012 at 11:28 #

      I appreciate that 🙂

      There’s no link to your blog; that might explain your problem 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
