Happy Blog-Day To Me

My blog, Hannahhotcakes, is 1 year old today so mojitos all round!

Twelve months ago, I sat nervously typing away as I put my thoughts and ideas into words and sent them out to be read by both friends and strangers.

170 posts later, I have documented a house move, our engagement, holidays, a new job, celebrations and lots of food!

In that time, I have pushed both my cooking and photography skills to try new and different things, found a new and creative outlet, had some rather lovely freebies and had lots of really encouraging comments and messages from people all over the world.

I have loved doing this and am happy to say that it still doesn’t feel like a chore. I am constantly thinking of new things to try, to eat, to taste, new places to visit and write about, and most importantly I’m really excited about what is to come.

I know I am not perfect, my pictures are sometimes a bit blurry and every now and again a spelling mistake creeps into my writing, but I keep trying to improve and move forward.

I have never really kept a proper diary before and often wish I had so I was able to look back on what I was thinking and feeling at different parts of my life. This blog feels like a picture book version of a diary and I do love looking back to remember events that I may otherwise have forgotten.

So, here is a heartfelt thank you/ gracias/ merci/ danke/ grazie to everyone who has visited my little corner of the internet and I hope you have enjoyed reading hannahhotcakes as much as I have loved writing it!


About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
