It's funny, this blogging things, isn't it? The chances of ever meeting those whose blogs you read and follow are minimal but, over the days, weeks, comments and replies, you feel a liking, you engage with them, in a way you empathise. There's definitely a friendly relationship going on there. I'm sure some of you will know exactly what I mean.
And then it stops.
Several months ago, Frugal Queen suddenly shut up shop and disappeared. Now, I didn't really feel any sort of 'friendship' with Jane, it isn't something she really encouraged, but I enjoyed her some of her entries and admired the way she pulled her life together and helped others to do the same.
Now someone else has stopped blogging. I don't know why and I'm certainly not nosey enough to ask around; that's her business and I am sure there are clear and important reason, but there's a great sense of loss in me at the moment. S, whatever the reason, thanks for sharing your home and life, for all the advice, info, accounts, recipes, photos and everything else that made your blog such a delight to read each day.
Be happy. Have a good life.
I hope she reads this.
