I can scarcely believe that I've now been doing this blog for a year. I remembered the anniversary only because I was creosoting a footbridge over the river. It's a beautiful spot and I remember waxing lyrical about it when I worked on the same bridge at the same time last year. And I remember I didn't drop anything in the river last time either.
Those of you who are regular visitors will now have a pretty good idea of what a year in my life entails. However I'm very aware of all the things I haven't yet told you about. I guess you'll just have to keep watching this space!
I'd also like to thank you all for your continued support. Those of you 'followers' who are visitors to the estate, I hope we'll be seeing you sometime in the coming weeks. But there are others I'd also like to say a big thank you to.
For example, my 'stats counter' tells me that I have a regular visit from someone in the San Francisco area ? and another looking in from Rio de Janeiro (or thereabouts). The very idea of it blows me away. I'd just like to say 'hi' guys, I hope you've enjoyed it- and continue to do so. And that goes for all of you visitors out there in Wwwebland.
A handful of blogs ago, I mentioned that I'd been offered a column in a magazine. Partly because of these blogs, as it happens.(This blows me even further away!) The magazine is called 'The Scots' and my first piece is in the latest (September) edition.
Now that I've seen it, the reality has struck home. And I'm finding it really rather scary. No, make that terrifying. Now, if I can keep my hands from trembling for long enough, I'll post you some pics of what is turning out to be our best grouse season for over 20 years.
I hope you'll drop in again soon.
