A little thankyou giveaway..

As a little token of my appreciation, I have decided to do a little giveaway to celebrate hitting 70,000 views.. Don’t get too excited, it’s nothing amazing like a free flight to Turkey…. I wish!!

70,000 views!

Yesterday this blog hit 70,000 views, I’m sure there are blogs out there that achieve this in days, or hours, but for little old me to get 70,000 views it is a big achievement. I’m amazed that so many people are interested in what I have to say. Anyone who knows me knows I am […]
