Monthly Round-Up: February

Oops, something's gone wrong on Planet Dom

Winter ended with a whimper here on Planet Dom; Storm Emma and the Beast from the East were forecast, but no one took any real notice; spring was teasing us with the promise of warmer days and the garden was awakening from it’s hibernation and besides, since when did the weather forecasters get anything right?


February may be short, but it was certainly sweet. We reached another amazing milestone of 500 followers subscribing to our little blog. Thank you to all the intrepid explorers who have been here from the start, and to all the new pioneers who have recently discovered us. I hope you stick around, I look forward to sharing lots more adventures with you.


We also welcomed a very important visitor to Planet Dom, and rather fittingly it was the  magnificent Sir Brian Blessed of Flash Gordon fame (“Gordon’s Alive!”). Yes, he of the booming voice and bushy beard has recorded a video message wishing Dom good luck on his ascent of Mount Everest. Dom’s face was a picture when he saw it!


I received two nominations this month, one from Girl Friday for the Sunshine Blogger Award, and another from Down to Business Mom for the Versatile Blogger Award. Do go and pay them a visit if you have time, and tell them I said “Hi”.

I have a confession to make; I did receive some other nominations but had to decline as they came just after I’d published the ones above. I did so graciously (at least I hope I did) and later thought, “Hey, wouldn’t it be a great idea to include their names and a link to their blogs”. Well yes, it would have been an awesome idea, apart from the fact that I can’t remember who it was who nominated me, so apologies all round. This I will rectify in my next Monthly Round-Up, providing, of course, that anyone will ever consider nominating me ever again. Doh!


If you’ve replied or commented to me recently and wondered why I’ve not responded, it’s because I’ve managed to turn off my notifications button and I can’t change it back. Normal service will shortly be resumed (with a bit of luck and a strong tail wind).


Every month I’ll list the blog posts I’ve enjoyed the most. No synopsis or explanation, just think of it as a lucky dip. So grab yourself a cuppa (or your favourite tipple) and dive in. I hope you discover something new and exciting, and if you have a favourite blogger, why not give them a name check in the comments box so I can check them out?
