2013 has been an unusual year for me in that I have not left the shores of the UK once! That doesn’t mean that I have stayed at home all year – no I have travelled to the south-east, the south-west, right across the Midlands to the east coast and to the west into Wales. The only direction I haven’t been in this year is North! And in between all this to-ing and fro-ing I even managed to have a few local trips, all of which have made me grateful that I have my health to enjoy such travels.
So here are some of my favourite memories of this year, enjoy them and I wish a Happy New Year to all my WordPress blogging friends 😀
This post links well with a couple of the end of year challenges, notably Sue’s ‘A Word in Your Ear’ Reflect, and the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge showing Joy.
January – Blakeney Quay
February – South Shropshire Hills
March – Hill Halton Farm
April – Fowey, Cornwall
May – Berrington Hall
June – Lower Slaughter
July – Large White and Lavender
August – Cley Windmill
September – Tenby, Wales
October – Mousehole Harbour
November – Autumn Tree in RHS Wisley Gardens
December – Net Shops Hastings
If you haven’t read about these trips then now’s the time to catch up:
- RHS Wisley Gardens
STOP PRESS: Friday 19th July well it appears that the problem has been fixed for all my UK buddies, but there are a few glitches such as my receiving multiple notifications by email if you comment on one of my posts, and I can’t comment on individual photos in a gallery, but I do have a voice again – so thank you Akismet support for getting this very irritating problem fixed. I do think the communication from WordPress could have been handled better, but all’s well that ends well. I hope 🙂

The problem appears to be fixed now. If you’re in the UK, and you’re still experiencing the issue, please let us know, especially if you’re a BT or Sky customer: http://akismet.com/contact/ We’re still investigating the underlying cause. It seems to be a network-related issue specific to some UK broadband networks and affecting only WordPress.com. If we can publish more details than that then we will. If you’re not in the UK then your problem is not the one being discussed in this thread.
