And So The Story Ends

Good Morning World and thanks for tuning in to the penultimate post day here on Planet Magnet. After this post there will be only one more and that won’t be for a couple of weeks as I tell the story of my walk along Britain’s oldest Road.

That means this is post number 499!

Quite an incredible feat but one that I suppose I am quite proud to have achieved.

I have always said that I would share my life with you guys for the next 499 posts, after which I would walk the Ridgeway for the Charity HENRY and make my 500th and final post about that very walk.

It is hard to consider the person I was when I started out on the journey. Some people don’t even recognise me as I have changed so much physically, others don’t recognise me because I have changed so much mentally.

Regardless of which is more significant I think we must all agree that since my surgery and subsequent life change, this person…

With My Mum!

Is no longer anything like this person….

If we consider way back when I started this little blog after advice to do so, I was incredibly unfit, unhappy, lonely, I was letting life pass me by and I was disengaged.

No more though.

What a difference 18mths and the help and support of medical professionals and all of you guys here on Word Press who come to read my words every day. Some of you read quietly and fly under the radar and some of you read and comment and encourage. Regardless of which camp you fall into, I appreciate you all so very very much and I thank you all very much from the bottom of my heart.

You guys have made the incredible challenge of 499 posts a possibility and I am so happy that I have completed what I set out to do I think all I need do now is wish myself Bon Voyage, Bon Chance and Bon Temps for the next week of walking. You will be able to follow my updates on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram…..

So until I write and publish the story of my walk, I shall leave you with these words from T.S Elliots Little Gidding (pointed TO me by Osyth from Half Baked in Paradise but here mixed up by ME) and hopefully they will sum up all I have been trying to say…

“To make an end is to make a beginning so always remember last years thoughts belong to last years language whereas next years words await another voice”

So ’till the last time,

Stay out of the fridge.

Kittens, Magnets, Filming and The You Tube….

Good morning everyone and thanks for taking time to tune into hump day here on the Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet.

Now because it is a hump day and even though I usually say there should be no special dispensation for them, today I will allow a small one in the form of making your day a little easier by not asking you to read anything, in fact, all you need do is sit back and watch.

Relaxation is entirely optional of course…..

As some of you know, a week ago last Saturday we started an experiment where we added the word kitten into the title of that days post in order to see if it actually increased the traffic to the blog. This was proven to be inconclusive so we decided to up the ante a touch and have recorded a new video log which is actually being previewed here on the blog rather than posting straight to You Tube.

The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet Ate My Kitten…Cont…

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to the weekend on here on Planet Magnet. Now I know that you probably have better things to do than sit reading my blog but I reckon you came back today because yesterdays headline really piqued your interest and you just had to find out what I was talking about.

Well, I can now report that mad old ladies with a house full of cats will be pleased but unfortunately their natural enemy the dog may be a little disappointed.

I did not eat any kittens.

To be honest, I did not even see any kittens let alone have any sautéed with some garlic and black pepper and serves on a bed of puppy dogs tails….

BUT!

The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet Ate My Kitten

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. It is Friday and the world is aglow with the hustle and bustle of the upcoming weekend. People are in  good (or at least better) moods as they see the opportunity to rest up or at least concentrate on themselves for the next 48hrs.

It is at this point I must apologise.

I went away from desk and the blog post launched and I wasn’t here to finish it!

Doh!!

So what is the title all about?

The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet Ate My Kitten….?
