  1. Thanks for the hat-tip my dear! I am flattered to be among your recommended blogs 🙂 I haven’t thought about my fave blog of the year, but Suger’s “Vulnerable” one would definitely be up there. I also love Jack Monroe’s stuff about austerity, poverty and food banks in Britain, she has a way of bringing you into the room to share the plight of those suffering. I also love the PBEvent posts, but only because I was there 🙂 Bookmarking this for later reading!
