Welcome to my blog!

I am a lefty. I write vertically, cannot use can-openers and was recently foiled by a right handed ladle (I will have my vengeance...) but more than this, I generally seem to approach life from a different angle. I appreciate that this may have nothing to do with being a lefty and may just be my own dysfunctionallity, but after earning the nickname 'Lefty-Flip' after a frustrating game of Guitar Hero, it seemed an appropriate title for this blog.

Happy Birthday!

This weekend marked this blog’s first birthday! Hurrah!

Have cake.

Due to an accidental spike in popularity I have now passed 3000 hits! Hurrah again!

Which prompted me to have a look through the rest of my stats…

Most popular posts have been…

And in the number one spot?

1)  2000 Hits This is simultaneously funny and tragic! Seriously, a fluke takes the top spot? Gah! I have got to sort this blog out!!!

Top searches that cause google to spit out this blog are:

2000, Post-its (ha ha ha!) Hogwarts (but of course) and my personal favourite ‘Giant Ursula’

Outside of the bloggersphere, other things that have happened in the past year include me moving house, losing a cat, and doubling the number of tattoos I have (four new ones this year! Four! And all of them literary references… hmmm, I think I have a theme for my next post…)

And more importantly, after various mishaps, re-writes, playlists, paintings, mud pies and writing in the bath... I am about to start on my fourth (how near is this to being the final?) draft of this blasted book! Which I love really, and am very excited to finish.

So there you have it. What I did this year!

More soon...

Popular-lar, la, la, la, la, la!

Weird things have happened to this blog. In the last two weeks (ie the two weeks I have posted nothing) I have had a 250% increase in visitors!

Only I didn’t post nothing did I – I posted my little ‘2000 hits’ thank you.
Turns out ‘2000’ is a very popular google search!  
So if you’ve come here by mistake, I hope you enjoyed your visit anyway!

PS Weirdly the same thing happened on twitter; I spent a week with no wi-fi, and gained 8 followers! Does that mean you all prefer it when I just shut up? Will try not to take this personally!

I'm going on holiday!

And in true Brit Holiday fashion, I am going camping for a week in Somerset, by the looks of things, in the rain! Yay! Wellies and rain-mac at the ready.

I can't wait!

The best thing about not flying anywhere (apart from the actual 'not-flying' part, which in itself is a winner!) is the fact that I have no weight restriction on my luggage, other than my own brute strength. I think 50/50 clothes and books should see me through the week right!

Catch up with you in a week or so!
