A year of blogging and Sting

A year of blogging - I sat with my finger poised over the 'publish' button for so long on that first blog that the little hacker took pity on me and pushed it for me.

Since then, what fun I've had, knowledge gained, shared and new friends made.

I know a lot more about plants, although still no Latin names, along with inspiration for delicious meals and of course strange foraged foods like that mushroom from Marie, I marvel at Lily's beautiful prose, photographs and her ability to find such great music, the flower arrangements over at Jane's are achingly beautiful, I know where to get the best vodka- very important-  along with food and inspiring photos from Donovan....I could go on and on, but the point being that everything shared is something gained and for that I am very grateful.

Not forgetting when our eldest, over the seas and far away gets lonely, she knows where to go.

The Romanian beauty got us tickets for Sting last night- what a great guy, an intimate concert......let me add that he's looking better than ever in his 61st year.

So with that in mind dear friends and fellow bloggers, in an totally not creepy sort of way, I offer you one of Stings best.......... I'll be watching you.


  1. That's a hot-looking man :-)

    Congratulations on your year of blogging, Karen. I was hooked first by a long table under your trees, with lunch, and friends...

  2. Okay really? The stalker song? When it that one not creepy? But beautiful. Beautifully creepy.

    Has it only been a year?

    Your photos are so enticing, your life seems so rich and interesting and everyone so damn beautiful, I don't know where you sprung from.

    But I'm glad you did.

  3. I agree with you on the blogging. It's been just over a year for me too and I never imagined I'd know someone in South Africa, my world is so much bigger and I've learned so much. Here's to many more.

    I also agree with you re Sting. Damn what a hottie!

  4. Awesome :) I hope you continue Karen, I love your adventures, meals and stories x

  5. Thanks so much everyone- my heart is full with your generosity :) xx

  6. It really is wonderful to find an extended virtual community of similarly minded people who one probably never meet otherwise, and even better, who offer up these unbelievable tidbits from their lives.

    That song is creepy though, it's part of what makes it so good, but I appreciate the broader sentiment, and echo your appreciation :-)
