today we emigrate to new zealand. nearly a year ago i had a conversation which ultimately has lead to us leaving the UK to start a new life in NZ. who would have thought it ?
thanks on behalf of the funkypancake family to everyone we know both on line and off line who has helped and supported us in our big adventure.
i’ll be sure to keep on blogging, although i suspect the next few days on funkypancake are going to be photos of the UK i haven’t got round to posting.
live updates via twitter/facebook/skype etc. you know the details. if not, drop me an email.
jane and i went down to Bath yesterday to watch my panel being assessed for Licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society, which i’m pleased to say i achieved.
afterwards we went and bought me a suite and some decent shoes. first time in about 20 years. it was a very painful experience
a rare day of just one picture to celebrate the 5th anniversary of funkypancake ! During that time i’ve blogged a pile of fresh pictures every day (although occasionally they didn’t show up for technical reasons!).
i’d like to thank everyone who keeps visiting, and especially those who leave comments, to say thanks for encouraging me to keep doing this nonsense.
i’m so glad the comments are back working, although i’ve had to change a few things to bring them back. in particular i’ve had to remove the list of categories and the list of monthly archives over to the right. I may also have to remove the categories from each entry on the front page.
that’ll be a shame as i like categories – they are my attempt to order the world. But the latest version of the blogging software has changed how categories work which lead to the recent server meltdown. So, although i’ll still categorise each entry, it may not show on the front index page. at least for the time being.
whilst i’m doing some typing, i must refer you to two other blogs which are almost exactly the same age as funkypancake and are still going strong (much stronger than funkypancake). i’d consider both of these chaps friends in the online and offline world. They are Russel Davies and Roger Darlington Happy bloggy birthday to you chaps too !
And of course an extra special thanks to mrs funkypancake and the two mini pancakettes for putting up with me generally and specifically.
