Five Years

pistachio madeleines© by Haalo

and 1174 posts later Cook (almost) Anything turns 5 and for the second year running I've managed to overshoot my blog birthday but life is like that, it's unpredictable - I did though, bake some lovely pistachio madeleines to mark the occasion.

I'm not sure if anyone has developed a formula to work out how many blog years equal one human year - I googled it but came up with nothing, but over a few lunch time discussions and possibly a few glasses of red, we came up with a rough figure.

Looking at it in a technological sense, 5 years would be a generation which would equate to 25 years so 1 blog year = 5 human years. On a purely subjective measure, it feels like 25 years!

Usually at this time I take the opportunity to change the site layout but I've decided to hold off on that for a few weeks to make sure it all works correctly.

As I say every year - thank you dear readers for your continued support. Whether you email, leave a comment or silently lurk, I appreciate the time you've taken and I look forward to your company in the future.
