But before we get to the pictures I want to tell my friends in Twitterland a bit about some of my new friends in Bloggerland. Over the course of the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing a bit about each one of the wacky inhabitants of Bloggerland that I've come to know with the wacky people in Twitterland. Today I'm going to introduce people from what I'm going to call The Irish Contingent.
First off there's a gent that goes by the name of The Angry Lurker at http://theangrylurker.blogspot.com/. Angry's page is devoted to the art of wargaming. The artwork Angry does on his pieces is spectacular and the amount of knowledge of history that is required to play these games is impressive. I know there are a lot of you in Twitterland that love history and I feel certain that if you visit Angry's page, you'll become as addicted to his blog as I've become.
Next up is a young man from Northern Ireland whose name is Matthew and his blog can be found at http://yeamiewaffles.blogspot.com/. I'm so glad I met Matthew. It is of great benefit to me to know a young person from up North and to see Ireland through his eyes. Matthew is so completely honest about himself that he gives me courage to be more open myself. And for all of us who have forgotten about how hard it is to be young, Matthew's page serves as a great reminder.
Now how to describe Mich over at SickB*tch http://s1ckb1tch.blogspot.com/ ? She's so many things wrapped up into one, she defies a single label. First off she's a professional writer and has a published a novel Underwood (available for purchase at Amazon). Mich is also obsessive compulsive about exercising and is always worrying about her weight. Can I hear an Amen ladies? You can find brilliantly funny stories about her life on her blog accompanied by her own animations.
I'm going to include my dear friend from Twitterland, Michelle in The Irish Contingent. Now Michelle is an American, but I've come to think of her as a sister, so I'm counting her as Irish. You can find Michelle at The Best Me That I Can Be http://grrlysquirrelheartsgavin.blogspot.com/. Like most of us women, Michelle is hard on herself about her weight. But unlike a lot of us Michelle has found a healthy and consistent way of losing weight and maintaining it. She is a member of Weight Watchers and it works because she uses it. Michelle also shares stories about herself on her blog and she is worth getting to know. You know her on Twitter as @grrlysquirrel and I suggest that you get to know her better by reading her blog.
And if you're reading this in Twitterland Deb, you'll love Mich and Michelle. I've read your tweets Deb and I think you should consider writing your own blog. Me, you Mich and Michelle could combine our forces and rule the Blogosphere. Between the four of us we could figure out how to lose the weight in our arses and keep our boobs while doing it.
And finally here are some of my attempts at black and white photography.
Now I know that was a lot for one blog. For those of you who stuck with it this far, I say Thank You. And so does my daughter, you've spared her the inconvenience of being troubled by her mum for one more day.
