SPECIAL: Reflection

City Hippy launched in late Feb 2005 and the past six months have just flown by.

I started the site on my own but have had help from, and great conversations with, people from all over the world. Contributors, tipsters, commenters, fellow-blogs, friends and family etc. You know who you are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. In fact if you are reading this then you are part of the collective. Thankyou! Travelling with you all on this greener path is a pleasure.

Well, not only is the City Hippy site six months old but today marks my 33rd year on this beautiful and delicate planet and so I have much planned for this weekend with family coming to visit and stay with us in our new house culminating with a big party with lots of family and friends on Sunday. Plus this is a holiday weekend in the UK with a day off on Monday so I will therefore have less time to devote to the site until next week.

It has been a wild ride and I have learnt so much.

In approximately three months time our first child will be healthily born, hopefully. I guess we are about to learn a hell of a lot more. Missus Hippy and I are just so excited and alive and the next six months promises to be an even wilder ride...and you have the best online seat in the house.

I am so proud of what we have achieved and I am really looking forward to a greener future.
