Bring on the Trumpets!! #350

14 Sep

Today marks a special occasion, its my 350th post! OK, not so exciting to the rest of you, but for someone that rarely sticks at anything when the going gets tough (and the brain gets mushy) its an achievement.

Since my first post I have gathered over three hundred subscribers, nearly one hundred followers on Twitter (@lillyheart999… come on people, tip me over the edge!) and a right little Facebook following. I have also made some friends that I would never have met otherwise in countries across the world (America, Italy, Australia… you name it!) and have shamelessly bared my heart about funny, painful and emotional and downright embarrassing experiences.

And im not planning on stopping any time soon!

When I thought of a celebration I was reminded of this advert, on the TV in the UK a year or so ago that always made me laugh. Sure, its a bit weird, but who isnt? Hope it makes you smile too. Bring on the trumpets!

    Bring on the trumpets!! What a fantastic achievement! I don’t have a great track record for sticking with things either – currently up to 19 posts on my blog. Your 350 milestone is inspirational! Well done.

    You’re awesome! WTG on 350 posts… eeeps! That’s a lot of thought and a lot of typing 🙂 but worth every minute!

    Bring on the crumpets…er trumpets! Congratulations. Impressive achievement indeed! And the commercial was cute, funny and aggravating 😛 (btw, just as a point of clarification…it doesn’t have anything to do with anything…isn’t “crumpet” an English slang term for “girl”?)

    • tinkerbelle86 September 15, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

      crumpets in England are now commonly little starchy circles of goodness that you toast and cover in butter. drips all over the place when you eat them. delicious! but i think posh people call girls crumpet. i am not posh, and therefore not familiar!!

    Your blog really is an impressive one. Have you been freshly pressed? I think you should, even if they back date. No wonder I immediately follow your blog and put you on my blogroll. 😀

    350!!! o_O I’ve been blogging for years now as well but kept switching blog source.

    Keep it up. 😀

    • tinkerbelle86 September 21, 2011 at 8:08 am #

      Ah thanks! nope, never been freshly pressed, I wish!! thanks for the kind words though. i see you are from San Diego, and right now im super jealous and wishing i was you! my family live there and when its raining and bleak in the UK I wish I had Dorothy’s shoes ….

      • rommel September 23, 2011 at 4:32 am #

        Oh no, Ventura, still south of california though. How about we trade places? I can bare the weather just to travel UK, and catch a lot of musicians there :D.
