Happy Blog-Birthday to me, Happy Blog-Birthday to me.... etc etc.
That wasn't how I intended to start this post. I was going to write about the fact that we (as in 'The Potty Family' - or more specifically, Husband and I) are in the Doghouse - note the capital D - as far as the other residents of our building are concerned.
However, I'm so bored by this myself that frankly I've decided not to subject you to tales of neighbourhood bickering over whether 'we' (The Potty Family) do or don't have the right to erect a set of steps - on our own property and meeting all planning regulations - up to the communal garden behind us. (Can you tell I'm cross? Thought not. I am a picture of calm...)
Instead, I will just state that whilst officially my 2nd blog-birthday is not until Sunday date-wise, it was on Thursday 2nd July 2 years ago that I kicked off The Potty Diaries with my first post, and bearing in mind that I hit post number 400 yesterday, today seemed as good a day as any to mark the fact that I have now been wittering away on the internet for such a long time.
Who would have thought my charming, funny, beautiful and entertaining Boys could provide me with so much interesting material? (With - admittedly - a little padding from me about related and unrelated subjects).

Original title, huh? And note the plethora of comments. It took me a while to work out that commenting on other people's blogs might be what it took to get some visitors of my own...
