2 years of Postcard from Gibraltar 


This month, Postcard from Gibraltar celebrates it’s second birthday. I had no idea where it would lead me when I wrote my first post and if I had a crystal ball and could see my life in June 2017 I would have been very pleasantly surprised to see that it is still going!


It’s opened all sorts of doors for me and achieved just what I hoped it would – getting my brain working again after spending over a decade at home with my children. It has led to me being asked to contribute to an online publication and given me the to confidence to apply for a small part-time job which I actually got!


It has given me an excuse to keep taking loads of photos as I wander about, and allowed me to waffle on about all my crafty hobbies!


This past 12 months has seen the launch of another Postcard from Gibraltar series “Creative Gibraltar” to add to my “Stroll around Gibraltar” series and most excitingly I was able to launch the Postcard from Gibraltar Podcast which you can find through the blog as well as on PodOmatic and, wait for it, iTunes! How cool is that?


Blogging has not only helped me build my confidence, I have also met so many lovely people through it both virtually and in real life. Last September I met my crochet heroine Lucy, from Attic 24 at the Yarndale Festival in Skipton, North Yorkshire and through Instagram I met the very talented Marisa, a Gibraltar born crocheter who lives in London and who has now launched her own blog Mariwish.

If you are thinking about taking the plunge and having a go at blogging yourself I can highly recommend it! Do have a go, you never know where it will lead…. 


As Postcard from Gibraltar enters it’s third year, I would like to say a sincere thank you for coming along on my adventure with me!

    1. Thank you very much Ann, I really do enjoy writing it and it’s a thrill to know that there are people like you out there who enjoy reading it too! 😊 And yes it was a treat to meet Lucy, she was lovely (as you can imagine) and I even got the chance, as do all Yarndale attendees, to visit her little crochet den above Coopers Coffee Shop. I felt like I had stepped through the screen of my computer into a woolly wonderland!

  3. Congratulations! Time goes quickly when you are having fun! My blog will also be two years old in September and like you, I have loved the whole writing process, the research and fitting the photographs to the text! It’s a wonderful way to organise your thoughts and memories, as well as use all those photographs!!! It has also been a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow bloggers and enjoy all their wonderful posts! All the Best, Jane xxx

    1. I’m with you on that Denis, there’s so many things I could write about, once you get into the mindset, there’s almost something everyday I could feature in a stand alone post but I need to switch off a bit I think as I head into summer or I may just implode!! I think the secret is slow and steady… I need to keep reminding myself of that and then I can keep plodding on for another year or two… 😊
