Lusting for Limelight

 I got quite a shock yesterday, when I realized I have surpassed this astoundingly large number of hits.  

This does call for some kind of celebration, as I think I must admit to not only the desire to blog, but also to having  tatters feel that my ramblings were worth following.  There.  I said it.  I was going for the applause.

Well, you have certainly granted me my secret wish. I thank you so much for the privilege.

It has been inspiring, invigorating and often entertaining to read all the comments and suggestions and to have the marvellous support of Tat-land.  You have been there in happy times  -  the arrival of Mini-Boss -  and  when things were not not going so well in the 'other world'.

This blog has been a lifesaver and I am grateful to each and every one of you who stopped by and had a peek at my progress and left a message.  This blog has survived because of YOU!

Maebh has decreed that I host a give-away to commemorate this milestone.  She is, right now as I write, pondering the logistics and the contents of the package...



  1. I'll celebrate with you by sitting down with a LARGE cup of tea!!! WELL DONE, dear Fox. Love your blog as it's always interesting.

  2. I have been visiting you through yarnplayertats is out and I am getting ready to open my own blog page. In the meantime....I love your site and as always will visit often!

  3. I enjoy your blog very much. Congrats on 50,000!!

  4. 50,000!!! Congratulations, and here's to 50,000 more... and more...

    It's always fun to see what you are up to. You have inspired me to try harder and no matter what, just keep creating. You have also expanded my vocabulary!

    Maebh has such personality and is so photogenic. LOVE that saucy little tilt to her head as she ponders a puzzlement!

    Limelight suits you, Fox!
    :) Ann
