At 5.16pm today this blog will be a year old.
Thank you, thank you, yes, I know, I've been great, oh you shouldn't have, no, no please, no more, oh, wow, solid gold...
I shall be unable to attend the surprise party you have organised as Jeff has pulled some strings at the Vatican and we're going to have a bit of a 'do' in St Peter's. All the people I have befriended from my year of blogging will be there - Amanda, Yvette, Joey, the worst football team in the world, Ed, Liverpool, Gordon, Paris, Keanu, Watt (What?), Donald, Naomi, Guidale, Pasty, Cannes, Polly and many more. It is knowing how pleased they will be to see me that makes today so special.
As Blake would have written, had he had the technology,
'Blog on, blog on, Voltaire, Rousseau:
Blog on, blog on: 'tis all in vain!
You throw the sand against the wind,
And the wind blows it back again.'
