Oops something has gone right- An amazing 1st year with WordPress

It has truly been an amazing year of writing, blogging, having fun, sharing, entertaining and making new friends.  I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well.  Just before I retired I had an episode of ill health, the only way forward was to get strengthened in Christ, get good nutrition and exercise going for total recovery and make each day special.  I wasn’t doing much in way of writing and from feedback of what i wrote was I needed to improve.  Then I found WordPress, a platform that gave me a boost of energy to further develop myself and the things I want to do.  I owe a lot to sharing with you and learning from you, I have written more, got involved in more activities and initiated my personal projects to fruition than I ever did.  I am glad I am able to write this without my laptop going, “Oops, something has gone wrong.” because of storage problems   I have been trying to catch up with liking and commenting on your blog posts, on writing the Daily Prompt and by God’s Grace one day hope to bring back ‘Top of the Elevenses/Brunch’.

Thanks to you all, from my first Follower to the most recent one, to all at Admin and Blogging Fundamentals, to Mr Ngobesing Romanus and all at Success Inspirers’ World, Viewers and Readers.  There are so many names to mention and I don’t want to miss any, so just believe I send you my love and thanks too.

Blessings of Palm Sunday to you all, His love is for everyone of us because we are all SPECIAL.

Top of the Elevenses/Brunch #8

I am having problems today with publishing this post, so I’m going to copy the title on to Word, paste the completed writing and hope it works.  Be blessed where ever you are and we are thankful

for our food and drink today.

I am having Natural Yogurt with Pumpkin seeds, dried Dates, Wholemeal Pitta bread with Flora and a glass of water.  I am thinking of the many things I need to do, apart from the writing, those I have started and need to be finished, start the autumn cleaning.

Having read a post on Reader ‘Blackout’ by Brendon, he had a Motor Vehicle Accident and do take a look at how he was feeling before and after it happened.  I am happy he is well but should get some rest.  I am sure I speak for all to wish you good health.

I am aware of listening to our intuition, our body and not pushing ourselves over the max when we don’t feel well.

100 Follows!


Hello everyone, how is your 11 o’clock sit down with your hot or cold drink and snack or meal going? For me it’s a cold dish of a piece of Roast Chicken Drumstick , Grapes, a sneaky piece of the last cake from the pan I rescued from the oven  and Green Tea and  a posh Gently Sparkling bottled water that tastes like tonic.  The latter a gift given to my daughter and  she is sharing it with me.

I just finished sorting out the refuse for recycling and reflecting on yesterday’s Red Velvet cake, it was a matter of “To add beetroot or Not to add Beetroot. That is the question.”   This means because I started with a beetroot recipe, I ended up doing another cake with one.  Last week was the first time I heard my son didn’t like beetroot, no one in the family likes it except me but I thought, baked in a cake should be alright.  Not sure  if like or allergy was in play, when I was reminded of this I decided on the mammoth task of more cakes, enough cake to share out and add to your elevensys.  In the end a 3 tier Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese/Butter/Cream Icing accompanied by Fresh Cherries won the day.  The rest, enough to make another cake is wrapped in the freezer.

It was a busy evening and a quick look at Blog revealed some stats, it was very late and my Publish click was failing so I thought it would be just as good to write it on Top of the Elevensys/Brunch. With the help of all of you dear friends, I have attained some success including that interesting number, 1337,  I keep reading about.  Thanks to all readers of my posts, Grace in Housekeeping, now has 100 follows, and 1337 likes go with Success Inspires’ World and Yipee WordPress staff.  Mr Ngobesing Romanus, if you’re reading this on your little holiday, “Thanks a bunch too.”

Now that the Bank holiday and  is over today I can carry on with my job search and contact offices that I need to sort out various invoices and bills I query.  Lastly, do your occasions bring out the best of memories and the worst of family verbal argy-bargy?   I think I am going to declare Free argy-bargy zone from now on. Have a grand day.
