You know I hate to big myself up (whatever THAT means!), but I'd just like to say that I recently discovered that, for the very first time, I've been BlogRolled by someone whos isn't a friend, acquaintance or member of my family.
So - many thanks to the lovely Mary B - who surely can't be old enough to have a 22 year-old daughter.
I also urge you to check out her Wildgoose Chase - the story of an 'ordinary' British soldier through the First and Second World Wars. I've only had a chance to dip in so far; but I'm sure that I'm going to have to spend one Saturday (or a quiet day in the office) reading the whole lot from the beginning.
Update: Oh, Lordy. I think I've started an international incident! Please, please do visit the punky, funky, spunky (in an American way) Mel Joy who was definitely my first international reader, even if she hadn't sorted out her BlogRoll before today (due to Mr Bush's evil foreign policies)...
