2nd anniversary!

Time flies indeed! Tomorrow marks the 2nd anniversary of my blog! Yeah!! 😀

First, my sincere thanks goes to my friend SweetCandyAndley for her hard work on translating my long story “Love Never Fails” despite being busy with her own fanfic. She sent me chapter 6 yesterday, just in time to celebrate the special day. 🙂 In fact, I drew a fanart for her back in April based on a scene in this chapter. The drawing is nearly done, which needs some polishing.

Thanks to my friend Antlay too, who has provided me rose pictures from her garden. I’ll use one of her roses as the background for the new drawing, so I can publish the new fanart together with SweetCandyAndley’s translation tomorrow.

Antlay has also finished translating a few chapters of “It must have been love” to French, and I’ve promised her that I’ll color one of her new drawings. I’ll get to that 😀 and publish it together with her translations too.

My friend QuevivaCandy has translated one of my posts The person I love to Spanish, and I’ll publish that soon. 🙂

Yes, lots of things are happening, and I owe it to you all! 🙂

As of now, I’m writing chapter 5 of Peculiar Relationship in my spare time. Writing takes lots of energy and focus, so I would like to heartily thank the following people:

Evelyn, QuevivaCandy, Agnès, Reeka, Antlay, Luna

I can’t thank you wonderful ladies enough! You are my current top commenters according to the WordPress stats, and I must say your encouraging words have given me the fuel to keep writing. To show my appreciation, I will give a variation of my new fanart to you as well. Please stay tuned. 😉

To those of you who have written comments on my posts but did not make the list, please accept my humble bow! I hope to continue to see you around. 🙂 Likewise, I would like to sincerely thank those who have liked my posts or left comments on my Facebook page and those who have favorited or retweeted my tweets on Twitter. In addition, I’m fully aware there are silent readers from around the world. All your support has motivated me to keep going. Hence, my deep gratitude to you all! 🙂 Have a marvelous weekend, my friends! 😀

    Ms Puddle, I’ve just noticed this post. Huhuhuhu where have I been ? 🙁

    Happy 2nd Anniversary to MsPuddleHaven! It’s a great pleasure to be your reader, really. Nothing more joyful for us, the avid fans of Candy+Albert, to see a blog so lively and frequently updated like yours. I do really hope there’s many many more years to come for this blog. If I am allowed to ask one thing to you ( am I?), … please, never ever delete this blog. Maybe some years from now, we’re not talking about Candy and Albert as frequent as we are doing now, but please keep this blog alive. It’s my greatest source of information for my most favourite story. If only I can get a copy of all your posts 🙂

    Thank you for starting to write again, for sparing your little free time to entertain us. **kiss**

    And thank you for the friendship. With you, and with other ladies I’ve met here. I’m grateful.

    Cheers!

      Thank you Reeka my friend for your kind wishes and encouraging words!! I honestly don’t know how many more years I can sustain this blog, but I’ll do my best. 🙂 It’s my great honor and pleasure to meet you wonderful people around the world! 😀 I’m grateful too!

      I can hardly believe I have written that many posts!! 😆 But thanks for your enthusiastic support to keep my blog alive, Reeka. 🙂

      Also, thanks for your encouragement. I’m more than thrilled to have started writing again, though I must say it takes effort and self discipline to keep writing. 😛 😉

    Saludos cordiales Ms Puddle
    Me es grato saber que se encuentra mejor de salud, doy gracias a Dios por ello. Y aunque un poco tarde Feliz segundo aniversario, en lo personal sus historias son de mis preferidas, porque tiene Usted una manera de escribir que atrapa al lector y lo adentra en la historia y además son de las pocas historias de fanfiction que respetan la esencia de la novela original de Mizuki. Yo sigo su blog hace un año, pero como soy una persona un poco introvertida, me cuesta un poco de trabajo expresarme sobre todo lo que pienso y mis sentimientos. Pero como usted es una persona de gran calidad humana y eso lo puedo percibir a través de sus historias me decidí a dejar de ser una lectora silenciosa, y agradeciendo por todo el trabajo que se toma para mantener este blog y reiterando mis felicitaciones su lectora y amiga fiel Vera.

    1. Ms Puddle

      Muchas gracias Vera! You’re so kind, and what you said made me blush… 😛 I’m very happy that you decided to stop being silent and talk to me, Vera, so that we can discuss ideas together. You also let others read what you think so that someone might be able to comment too. Once again, gracias!!! I wish I could write in Spanish, but I’m learning simple Spanish phrases five minutes a day. Hopefully, one day I’ll be able to write simple Spanish sentences to you and others. 🙂 😉 😛

    oH, WAO!!! MS. PUDDLE !! 2 YEARS!!!! MY SINCERE CONGRATS FOR YOU.
    IT´S A GREAT PLEASURE READ YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR HISTORIES.
    AND NOW YOU HAVE A NEW ONE, RIGHT?
    AWWWWW… WELL DONE MY DEAR. I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU.

    1. Ms Puddle

      Hola, querida Olenka! Muchas gracias! You’re so kind. 🙂 Hope everything’s going well with you, mi amiga!

    Congratulations on the second anniversary of your blog. I can’t believe it’s been already 2 years. Your posts are very interesting. Although I don’t comment often anymore, every now then I do like to read your thoughts about CC. A lot of your followers also seem to have good insight in CC (CCFS as well as the manga).
    Your drawings are also delightfull!
    I’ve always admired your dedication to your blog (and the followers of your blog). Hopefully you’ll be able to continue for many years to come. Even through I don’t check your blog as much as I used to, you’re still in my thoughts.

    A big hug,
    CKati

    1. Ms Puddle

      Thank you so much dear CKati for your kind words and encouragement! 🙂 Actually, me neither! Time flies, right?

      Don’t worry about not commenting as much as before. Like you said, you’re in my thoughts too. So see you around, my friend! 🙂

    Bonjour dear Ms Puddle,

    First of all many congrats for the second year of your blog! Without you, for my part at least, I could say, many things would be in the dark about CC FS. I have learnt and still learning a lot from you and from the ladies of your blog and this is making me very happy!
    I should also add, since I have been following your blog, I am getting dependent on your stories and believe me, very looking forward for each new one. Importantly, I am dreaming after reading your stories! Do you know how nice it is? This is what I forgot for a very long time! Thank you very much for this and thank you very much also sharing with us your precious works . I really know it is not easy, at least for me, to write down something in a good , a logic way.

    P.S1:Bye the way, since last monday , I’m in London. Always I am feeling very attached here and as you can guess, maybe one of the main raisons of this attachment is Candy Candy Story! (Sometimes I’m seriously thinking that this story, characters were real…or as Hawking said once something about other dimensions, at least this could exist in one of the parallel universes)
    PS2: I wanted write something about chapter 4 , honestly, I was so tired. But I read it with all comments!I like a lot the scene when they were alone in the party. Her hesitations and Albert ‘s fears about her were remarquable! Yes, he is doing many things for her but not in a way of a lover…his actions are very nice, polite but not clear…So Candy is right when she is thinking her feelings are one sided….
    PS last: Get well soon and I hope you’re healthy again.
    Cheers,

    1. Ms Puddle

      Bonjour Luna! Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m so glad you’re looking forward to reading each new post and that you feel attached to my new story. That’s extremely encouraging, and I’m more than touched and motivated! Merci beaucoup! About the new story, what you said really warmed my heart. What can I say? I’ll do my best to keep writing. 😀

      I’m almost recovered today, and thanks for your concerns! You have a wonderful weekend, dear Luna!
