'Tis the Season for a Birthday

Hello scrumptious ones

As my post title has reliably informed you, the very busy Birthday season is just about to descend upon Tenacious Towers.  

Next week, I will be cyberbrating none other than this little Blog's 2nd Birthday, ah, and what a fantabulous two years it has been!  I'll be stocking up on a right nice selection of cakes and pastries for next Friday, so please feel free to pop by for a cuppa, gin & tonic and a nibble when the fancy takes you. I was hoping to have clocked up 10k hits by the official day (19th) but I guess I will have to be happy with nearly 9,000, and when you consider the total drivel that makes up the majority of content on this blog, that is pretty much a miracle in itself.  I know some sites get 9k hits a day, but I am quite happy with my figure, thank you.

So, I am thinking if it's the Blog's 2nd birthday, that means it is also two years since the Bloomsbury Bloggers met en masse and formulated individual - but intricately connected - global screen domination plans.  The rest is, as they should say, literary history.  How far we have all travelled in two years.  Super stuff.

I must say I am very happy and excited to be part of such a posse of particularly talented people. It's a group that grows steadily by the month and offers a sense of 'you are not alone' in The Great Quest for Ultimate Artistic Satisfaction - or even just a hint of where the colour of money is glistening, of course...

So, Blog Birthday aside, it is also my *very own* Birthday tomorrow.  It's going to be a bit of a strange one as I'll be on my total lonesome due to one reason or another - but fear not for the Tenacious One, for I shall have a trusty bottle of something sparkly, a draft shot list and a step outline nearby to keep me company. Strangely enough, in an odd twist of Fate, I only just realised I am actually going to be a year younger than I thought I was ! How very funny!

Staying on the positive side of life is my short, "Perfect", which I understand has now gone to Lifesize/UKFC for comment. It's not long until final D-Day when the green light button is pushed or not - but I do hope and pray that little green glimmer shimmies in my direction. Only time will tell. This week also saw a lot of voiceover work come in for me and the design completion on my site, Brave Soldier Films, which, as with all these things, is a work in progress being updated as and when.

Right, I'm off to select my vintage from the cellars to make sure it is thoroughly chilled for midnight. I bid you a wonderful weekend when it arrives at your door.  Shall catch up with you soon.



  1. Have great day. You must tell me the secret of losing a year as the buggers are hastening me towards my personal Ragnarok.

    Exit, followed by beer.

  2. Secret? Amnesia. And you are..? :)

  3. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday for tomorrow, Lara!

    Btw, the website looks cool.

    Good luck with the films!

  4. Nice website Missus! And Happy Birthday for tomorrow!

    Fingers crossed for Lifesize!!!


  5. Thank you, Sir Sheiky - for the wishes, comps and luck! x

    Ms Pots - I thank you for crossing those little porcelain digits of yours, plus the celebratory wishes and the web nod! We shall, of course, 'cheers' lots to all these next week. x

  6. Hope you had a good yesterday - March birthdays kick bottom (he said in unbiased fashion) as the days grow longer and the sun shines. What better time to be born, I ask?

  7. Helen - thank you, my lovely!

    John - we totally rock. There is no other choice in the matter. It is what it is, we are what we are, and it rocks. End of ;) x
