365 days in my shoes Day 365

It’s December 31st 2013. What a year.

On December 19th 2012 I posted my first ever blog post with a simply picture and one of my favourite quotes.

Having received a fab shoe calendar for Christmas I blithely posted that I would include a picture of every day’s unusual shoe with a blog. What did I let myself in for?

Well here we are, 365 days later from January 1st 2013!
1st January 2012 saw this https://highheelsandhighnotes.wordpress.com/2013/01/01/365-days-in-my-shoes-day-1/

I recall hitting day 100 and receiving a comment from a head teacher saying they didn’t think I’d still be going after 100 days. That was 265 days ago. And here we are!

There have many highlights of blogging this year and too many to remember every single one in detail.

I suppose the best highlight has to be making new contacts and ultimately fab friends who have become real through meeting face to face starting with teachmeets and tweet-ups and then just because we can.

Other great highlights include the banter from ORRsome twitterati over the year.

A blog with over 72,000 views in one year and 36,000 tweets – the year has been such fun.

Teachmeet The Opera was bORRn – sort of happened by accident while chatting with a friend on twitter about presenting at my first ever teachmeet. I had an idea about sharing my top ten favourite blogs but really wanted it to be different rather than simply standing up and saying the names. The title of my blog HIGHHEELSANDHIGHNOTES lent itself very easily to solving the problem and the first twitter aria appeared.

Followed by 92 twitterati. If I were to re-write this I’d need to include an awful lot more. There are some amazing people out there to follow on twitter.

If I were to name everyone I’d recommend following and reasons why I’d need an entire opera, never mind one aria.

What is a teachmeet? Strangely proved to be asked for at several teachmeets over the year…..

One of my favourites has to be The Ode to all head teachers. I am in ORR of some of the amazing heads out there. It can be a very lonely job and I have had incredible support and networking with many heads. So once again, this is for you.

I already have at least three new pieces to write for the new year for various teachmeets as well as NORRthern Rocks 2014.

I’ll keep you posted.

So what will today bring?
Really do have to end the year of blogging for 365 days consecutively in my shoes with my own inimitable style of high heels and high notes!

These boots were made for walking…..

I finally got round to counting the footwear and if you include my purple Hunter wellies (often appeared as willies due to predictive text!!! lol), Goretex boots, slippers, tap shoes etc…, I have 114 pairs!

78 were needed to create this.

However, it’s not goodbye!

I have my next shoe calendar at the ready.

    • Thank you, Phil.

      It was a huge undertaking but such fun.

      Moving on to ‘A walk in my shoes’ weekly, perhaps mORR than once a week, but definitely when I choose and feel like it.

      Happy New Year.
