I’m in a terrific mood today, because not only is it one of those rare Saturdays where I have no plans (this is good news for introverts like myself) but it’s also the start of my two week long Easter holidays. This means I now have lots of time to engage in my favourite hobbies-reading, writing and blogging-and this makes me very happy indeed. The lovely, long lie-ins also help 🙂
Anyway, I’ve spent most of today trawling through the list of blogs that signed up for the A-Z Challenge theme reveal, bookmarking ones that seemed interesting or had a theme that appealed to me. I didn’t manage to get to all the blogs (there are 544 on the list), but I did have a look at about 250 of them, so that’s not bad! I’m sorry I didn’t have a chance to leave any comments, but I do plan on visiting some of those blogs during the challenge to say ‘Hi’.
