When I first set out on this ‘blogging thing’ in January 2011, I never imagined it would become this addictive or that I would be this faithful to the virtual bunny – dear reader, I get angsty if I don’t post, I post and all is good with the world.
It is the the thrill of instant publication, reading the stats, receiving comments and subscribers that send my fingers to the keyboard and the little arrow to the blue ‘Publish’ button time and again. Without the readers there would be no thrill, so thank you all very much to those who subscribe, comment or just look every now and then. Your support for the spicy bunny is invaluable. A big thank you too to all those food producers, chefs, restaurants, gardeners and general food enthusiasts who have suffered my note-taking in pink pen with such grace.
To send out the old and ring in the new, here is a selection of photos from 2011, the very first Year In The Life Of saffronbunny:
