It’s My 4th Blogaversary!

1 Jul

Technically, it was yesterday, but I forgot to post about it (this morning’s joke refers).

It’s hard to believe I have been blogging for four years, but I have: 2561 posts’ worth.  You wouldn’t think there was that much nonsense in the world, would you?

Despite the teeth falling out of my mouth and feeling generally unwell and forgetting to do the kind of stuff I do every day, the blogaversary crowns a rather good week:

  • I had a poetry reading
  • I had a poem accepted for publication
  • My son made me burst with pride
  • My other son phoned home, which made me burst with happiness
  • I have a new secondhand couch in the lounge AND we managed to get rid of the old secondhand couch on the same day so it wasn’t lying around the bottom of the stairs blocking access in case of fire
  • My friend sold her house and found a new one so I don’t have to worry about her
  • I had a huge stats bump on Saturday after a ten-month slump
  • I lost another kilo which brings my total loss in one month to five kilos
  • I had my first Have you lost weight? query

Happy Blogaversary to me!

    here is to you from me ….. only thing is that they have named the music wrong – it’s not anniversary song .. it should be anniversary waltz … so just grab Hubby now …. and thanks for being you.

    Congratulations! You’re right, for someone who had an unpleasant week with her teeth and sorry to hear feeling unwell overall, you had an awesome week with everything else of great importance; your writing, your family, your friend, your kilos melting away and your anniversary. I’m with Viv this merits photos. When you feel better of course. Hooray for Tilly!!!

    Happy Blogiversary! It’s hard for me to get through my day without your wit!

    Congratulations and many happy returns. I knew the Brits did stones, but didn’t know about kilos. I am not very metric literate I suppose. Dianne

      Years of living in South Africa. I’ve forgotten Imperial measures. I do know it’s 2.2lbs to a kg, so that’s 10.10lbs.

    Congratulations! 4 years… quite a commitment! And I’m so glad you’re committed. To blogging that is. 😆


  18. Janie Jones July 1, 2013 at 21:36 #

    Lots of congratulations!

    Four wonderful years. What did we do before we blogged? Darned if I can remember. The world is definitely a much richer place with Tilly Budd around. Long may you blog, friend. xx


  20. ruthrawls July 1, 2013 at 23:02 #

    What Kate said ^. And congratulations!


  21. Musings July 2, 2013 at 02:03 #

    Congratulations!!! I’ve been blogging 5 years and only have 1800 posts to my credit. You are making the world a happier, funnier place.

    Happy Blogoversary!! I never celebrate mine. I stopped and started twice…so I don’t really know what mine is. And I don’t need the cake since over a month of steadying working out has seen me lose zero pounds. I’m going camping this week and eating nothing but bugs and rice Survivor style.


  23. Katharine Trauger July 2, 2013 at 07:08 #

    Good job! Way to go!
    You have sure given me a lot of happy moments and I appreciate you! Have a Malteser! 😉


  24. bevchen July 2, 2013 at 07:40 #

    Happy blogaversary… here’s to many more!
    That’s a lot of posts… I only have 752 after 5 years! Probably because I kept neglecting my blog for months on end.


  25. adinparadise July 2, 2013 at 11:45 #

    Wow, you leave me in the dust, Tilly. Congrats to you on your four years of making people laugh, and also on your other listed achievements. Very impressive. 🙂


  26. lanceleuven July 2, 2013 at 13:42 #

    Wow! Congratualtions. Here’s to four more happy years, and more after that! 🙂

    Reblogged this on Kate Shrewsday and commented:
    Tilly. The Laughing Housewife. Visit her laugh and you’ll be joining her before long. For Tilly life is one long guffaw, but she’s also a published poet and all-round good egg.
    If you visit one feel-good site a day, let it be Tilly’s.


  28. theonlycin July 3, 2013 at 17:18 #

    Happy blogaversary, Tilly, here’s to many more. Cheers! xxx


  29. nrhatch July 3, 2013 at 18:44 #

    Congratulations on all counts!
    The suspense with the candle was nailbiting, but she got there!


  35. Madhu July 4, 2013 at 09:35 #

    Ha ha ha, congratulations on all of those achievements 🙂

    I’m sporting a temporary crown at the moment so feel your pain on that front, the dentists chair wasn’t pleasant as it took 3 goes throughout the process to get the local anesthetic to take…
    I’m also on a health kick so trying to loose some kgs that I put on due to inactivity… so hang in there, your 5 kgs in a months is VERY respectable indeed!

    Here’s to the NEXT four years of having fun blogging!!!


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.
