Jazzpad Turns Two

... and I can't quite believe it.
Happy Birthday dear blog.
From my very first post about justifying being a bargain hunter (my god I was a waffler back then), 104 weeks and 326 posts later - almost one every other day, wow! - and Jazzpad is still here. It amazes me to think that it has really picked up over the past 4 months, I've gone from 200-550 followers since January alone, mental. It has never been a chore, it has always been a pleasure, and I have always had lots of things I want to write about. I am really grateful to have found this little world where I've met (online and IRL) some truly wonderful, hilarious, empathetic and talented people. All that is to say is a big THANKYOU to you for reading. I would have carried on writing even if you weren't here no doubt, but it is made all the more special by every single one of you who comments, reads and drops by to look at the occasional pretty picture courtesy of my lomo. Love you all 

Some old post Lolz:
- My irrational fear of moving out (which all ended up fine, by the way)
- Some things really don't change; still got a lotta love for the girls
- I miss being a ginger

To celebrate this 2-year-anniversary, I'm arranging a giveaway to coincide with the next follower milestone, and I can guarantee it's going to be a whopper! Stick around, get the kettle on. I'm here all week xox
