1000th Blog Post!!! (by )

Yes that's right this is our 1000th blog post on this blog!

Imagine streamers and balloons and glasses of fizzy stuff and cake!

To the first 10 people to comment on the this post there will be a 1000th blog post limited edition Wiggly Pet! The only condition is that you actually have to come and visit us to pick the Wiggly Pet up though there is no time limit on this 😉

The Wiggly Pet will of course be glittery!

(@ndy you still need to claim the Wiggly Pet you won from me ages ago over Percival the mouse)

The blog is of course 5 years old as well so there will be a further 5 purple and blue sparkly Wiggly Pets with 5yrs of Snell-Pym on them 🙂 (tacky I know but hey its me!)

We origonally started this blog up as a notice board to say how the wedding went as we got frustrated having to keep typing the same stuff over and over again in emails then Al made it so it was easy for me to add photos and from here my blog empire has arisen! 🙂

I hope we are still an interesting read - it was actually a bit of a shock to us when we found that lots of random people read the blog but they do and it has provided useful information for them and sometimes they give us useful information about a problem or crisis we are having which is all good.

I at least am now addicted to blogging so will no doubt continue to bore you all with family events and Jean cuteness and musings and ramblings on philosophy, society, science and art, and I'm pretty sure Alaric will continue with all his technical posts.

I have the other blogs out of nessecity as I found I was creating too much content which could be split into various catagories plus I love setting up blogs and making/fiddling with themes making each blog look like its subject matter 🙂

As a chronic diary writer (thanks to Aunty Lizzy and a Christmas presant when I was like 12!) blogs are the perfect medium for me to whitter in and as for Al it is an over spill of his note books - somewhere he can share his ideas and the like 🙂

We hope to continue boring you for the fore seeable future.

    ooooooooooooooooh Wiggly Pet! Yes please! Can I ask for a special edition one with spikes along the back like a dragon? 😛

    Congratulations on 1000 posts! 😀

    Excellent! Can we have some graphs? Maybe even pie charts? Number of posts by author; posts by category; a histogram of posting distribution over time; most read posts; most commented posts; map of read locations, etc, etc.

    Thanks for reminding me about the other wiggly pet: I need a couple more to keep my current one company. 🙂

    I don't think I'm going to be able to make it on the bank holiday but have suggested to Al that we get together for another "work at home week" or something soon.

    Hey Sarah. Ok so I'm shallow. The offer of a free wiggly pet has made me finally get in touch with you... it was too good to miss out on! 😀 Here's hoping I'm in the 10. I still have my fire bearing wiggly pet who sits on my shelf at home. He is very happy with life. I've been reading your blog from time to time and kept thinking I should contact you but I am rubbish, sorry 🙁 Do you ever swing by London? Could maybe meet up sometime. I think the last time I saw you, Al and Jean was at the wedding, oopsie. Will email you so we can catch up. BTW a really weird thing happened. I found out that Ceri my roommate from BSH was taught maths by my mother in law. Scary coincidence! Speak to you soon xx

    Congratulations on your blogversary or whatever it should be called. We've booked sleeping space with Barbara, and look forward to seeing you for Jean's party, and hopefully a few days earlier.

    I like these blogs, feels like you're chatting to me without me being directly there - which is useful considering i haven't seen you in what? 4 years? Not sure! Is it longer than that? We are coming for a visit be warned! lol. Just let me know when it's a convenient time for you - maybe in Oct?? I'm curious about the wonderful world of Snell-Pym, would be great to meet the man that snatched you from singleton x x

    Do I get bonus points for replying from your own house?

    I'm one of the ten I think. Can I have my one for my 60th at the same time please. Congratulations.
