29 Dec 2013


      Can you believe that this Tuesday sees the end of 2013? That's another 12 months of posts on Pen and Paper which can only mean one thing .......

A walk down memory lane.

It's interesting and fun and all you have to do is .........
"Take the first line of each month's first post over the past year and see what it tells you about your blogging year"
  • JANUARY: Wishing You All The Best: An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.
  • FEBRUARY: Prom Nights From Hell: The first book read for ....
  • MARCH:Author Catch-UP: Lisa Becker: Perhaps the biggest bookish surprise of last year for me was Click: An Online Love Story
  • APRIL:When Two Out Of Five Aren't True: No, I'm not going to bake a napkin in your pancake, stick a buzzer in your handshake or any of these other things but what I am going to do is share with you five stories about myself only three of which will be true, the other two being April Fool's Day tall-tales.
  • MAY: The Cottage Tales Of Beatrix Potter: The Tale Of Hill Top Farm: With many thanks to Kelly for sending this ..... Husband dearest was right you can make good friends on-line.
  • JUNE:A New Science Of Navigation: LONDON: a network of living symbols threatened by the digital tentacles of an alien power spreading throughout the capital.
  • JULY: Beyond Hairy Stockings: As if last week's 'hairy stocking weren't enough now we have the limited edition £2,499 fur coat made entirely from ..... male chest hair.
  • AUGUST:TaleSpins: Meet Creepy and discover the truth behind the Snow White story you thought you knew.
  • SEPTEMBER: A Skydiving Teddy And A Chocolate Castle ..... It's All Happening In Brighton: A cat owner has apologised to neighbours after her cat, Nibbles, was found to have pinched items including dishcloths, sports bras, gravy paste and even a bath mat.
  • OCTOBER:Sorry ... Sorry ... Sorry: Husband writing…. Sorry for the interruption to beloveds blog.
  • NOVEMBER: Stormbringers: Luca Vero is a member of the secret Order of Darkness, tasked with searching out and reporting signs of the end of the world. 
  • DECEMBER: Of Ducks, Sprouts And Paper Clips: Children from Stoke have been banned from feeding the ducks at their local park after the County council claimed it was encouraging 'intimidating' wildlife.
Hmm, I wonder what 2014 will bring.

Hard to believe that another year has gone by! It's always fun to take a look back. Here's to a great 2014! :)

This is a fun way to look back over the year. Fun seeing my name, too. :)

I'll be posting my annual book wrap-up to end the year.

What a fun post! I hope 2014 is a wonderful year for you.

This is a fun idea for a meme.

I just had a crazy thought. Maybe next year someone can plan their posts so that at the end of the year they have created a coherent message using these rules.
