Thinking Back

Over the last month of April, I have blogged every day, with either an A-Z Challenge post or a Saturday Satire and while I have found it a fun thing to do, I have felt contstrained by the need to have a post and not to be free to choose when to blog and when to have a break.

Having said that, the A-Z challenge was fun and interesting as my background being Welsh but my new home country being Cornwall it was entertaining to look at the Cornish language and compare it to the more established Welsh and Breton forms. I learnt a lot at the same time, that there are no words in Cornish (that I could find) that started with Q, X or Z but that swear words have been converted into Celtic from the Anglo Saxon forms, and thanks to Hogday I was inspired to find this out :-)

On another plus point, the other participants in the A-Z challenge were very supportive and I gained a number of new followers and people to follow as part of the process.

Most of all, I would like to thank my good friend, and blogging colleague, Dickiebo who awarded me a rare and very valuable dickiebouquet which I have proudly put on my sidebar. I can't tell you how much I treasure this award, as Dickiebo would be highly embarrassed but believe me when I tell you that it was a great honour and experience.
