It was a shock when I returned from holidays, eager to review the posts from Food Blog Desam. It wasn’t there! Food Blog Desam has lived its life and this service that fed thousands of us with daily treats from across the globe is no longer. RIP. And thank you to the two wonderful people, Indira from Mahanandi and Mathy Kandasamy of Virundhu who put it together and maintained it all this time.
I am a bit shocked too, at feeling that summer is going too quickly. December was here, with a bit of warm weather, but I was so busy first with work and then with Xmas, that I didn’t get to appreciate it enough. Then after 2 more weeks of very hectic work, I was overseas holidaying for 5 weeks. Now I find that pumpkins are in the markets, and brussell sprouts. Plums too. Onions. Aaaahhh! Where did my summer go? I feel that I have not had enough long lusciously warm evenings, salads, fruit, beaches and beautiful sunshine.
[Resolution: eat all the summer fruits and make lots of salads from summer greens while they are still available and until only pumpkins and potatoes feature in the markets.]
There were many other shocks too – it is strange how the world can change in 5 weeks. Even the street that I live in had changed. So to help ground me and bring some normality back into my life, let’s check the top posts for February. Did you miss any? Which was your favourite? The top post BY FAR was on The Making of Teas. It has twice as many visits as the next most popular post.
Oh, and the other (great) shock is that I have passed 30,000 visits to my site (Measured by WordPress) and this is my 75th post.
