The Last Post

Well, the time has come.

After several false starts, and attempts to get back to Vanishing Point, I have decided to call it a day. For good this time. I have loved having this blog, it's meant a lot to me to be able to connect with people in this way over the years, and though it's sort of barely been breathing for a fair while now, in it's heyday, it was a really big part of my life and friendships, and I'm happy to have it all here still. Thanks heaps for reading, for commenting, for guest-posting, for doing my quiz all those years etc etc. I've made some really good mates through this.

I've also bit another bullet and have just joined Facebook, after years of bucking the system. Seems like a way I'll be able to connect with people the way I used to here, but without the pressure of having to write long posts. I'm only ten years late to the party, what's new.

Anyway, I'm brand new, just five minutes ago I set it up, and am so far friendless. But I hope I'll be able to befriend you blog peeps over there. Tell me how to find you and I'll request your comradeship, or whatever the FB protocol is.

Exciting things are on the horizon- we are expecting our forth child in less than two weeks. So I look forward to sharing that news over there when it comes. Take care for now.

Thanks a lot, friends, over and out.

Ben, well done on a great blog mate. Yours was always one of my favourites. Thanks for all your effort with it. I always laughed a lot when I was here.

Hi - would love to send you a friend request on fb but I can't tell which "Ben McLaughlin" you are amongst the heaps of others who show up when searching for your name. Feel free to look up Laetitia Bailey-Mortimer to find me.

Gonna miss ya, Ben! So glad to hear about the new little one on the way. The blogosphere will be the poorer for your exit but I totally understand these things have their time and then their end. It's been so much fun getting to know you. So farewell and God bless!
