today bloggers, we are one year old. Yes, a year ago today our aspirant Livi set everything up for us, typed in the first words and we were off. Now we have reached the greand total of 48,108 hits, which we think is good for a small community hidden in rural Staffordshire and almost unknown until we ventured into cyberspace.

    There were times when we got lost and often despaired -especially at the beginning, but with the help of noble bloggers and friends we have forged a way through and managed quite well. Thankyou for all your comments and questions which have been thought provoking, interesting and fun -please keep them coming. Thankyou too for all your support, prayers and interest in the way of life of a very simple and  small English community. 3 cheers for us all. Pax Sr Marie-Therese.
