300000


And there we have it, I hit 300,000 pageviews before I could make 200 followers. It kind of snuck up on me, I'd been watching it closely and then the new print and play page managed to tip me over the edge. The real shocker is that the last 100,000 views have happened in 6 months, while the first 200,000 took 2.5 years.

Anyway, I thank you all and I would be even more elated and happy for your support, unfortunately I'm struggling what to say at the moment because once again a personal situation is overshadowing things, which is why this post is late. On Friday night my Great Aunt passed away, she was 93 and it wasn't unexpected but it's difficult to get my head around. Auntie indulged my passions my whole life, when my grandparents and parents struggled to connect with the things I was interested in she was the one buying Dwarves from Games Workshop mail order so I had exactly what I wanted on Christmas day. She would listen to me drone on about the games, the painting and then later on future hobbies, past-times, family life, hopes, dreams, work frustrations - she was always there to listen, I'll miss her dearly.

I'll not say any more than that. I want to, I want to leave some testimony like I did for my Dad but I'm not sure this is the same thing and I'm not sure I'm ready yet. I've got a couple of posts to round out the end of the month, not quite the continued push of the Print and Play terrain I'd hoped, but you never know.

Once again thanks for visiting and I guess thanks for 'listening' too I'll try to measure up to the support I've received so far.
