I chose a few of the highlights of my first year or two blogging. Whether you were here then or whether you're new to my blog, I send you my heartfelt thanks for such a wonderful time.

My first post.

Remember the Nanny Next Door story? I just heard that Ninny is leaving soon and I shall miss her terribly. You know where she's going? To look after the baby of her very first baby. That's right, the little baby girl she cared for when she first arrived in Australia is expecting her own baby in a couple of months and has asked Ninny to help her. Mary Poppins was right about nannies leaving when the wind changes, but I bet she never dreamt of such a lovely breeze as this.

Remember A Cache of Jewels? Here's the first in the series.

I was prolific back then. Wow.

The first time I ever wrote a poem "on demand".

The best limerick I ever wrote. And I've written a few.

Ellie's poem. With love. The photo of Ellie's castle is still on my screensaver.

Thanks for three years of magic, and here's hoping for many more to come.

Eleanor from your commentbox xxxxxxxx

I've so enjoyed this post.
A voyage of dicovery as I explored those links to past blog posts.
The poetry...hmm, trying to think of the right superlative. Well, take them all.
So glad to have met you recently. To put a face to the writer.
Three years blogging? Cups up to MANY more.
