Britain’s Biggest Blog

Reading time: < 1 minute...

The National Trust is encouraging people to record a diary of their day on a website, as part of what is being called “Britain’s biggest blog”. The blogs will then be stored by the British Library and at other locations.

There are more details HERE at the History Matters website.

So, here is my day….

A very ordinary one!…

Up at 4am to check emails

5.35 am Dropped Ann at the station to pick up the train to London.

8.45 Took the cats (Biscuit and Bon-Bon) to the groomers for their normal six-weekly ‘wash-and-brush up’. Last time was 22 July and we’ve probably left it a bit late this time as Bon-Bon’s coat has become quite notty…

9.30 Worked from home getting ready for the ‘Business Report Writing’ workshop tomorrow in Solihull. Also prepared my Trainer notes for the ‘Leadership’ Workshop running in a few weeks’ time in Daventry

2.00 Unusually, the cats weren’t ready for pick-up at 2, so I twiddled my fingers alittle in the afternoon

5.00 The cats are ready for pick-up! Yippee!!!

5.30 The cats look great – and smell great too! 🙂

6.30 Picked Ann up from the Station

Watched a bit of TV

Went to bed around 8.30. Feel like I’ve got a cold coming!

  1. Hi Steve

    I enjoyed reading your One Day in History post. You managed to
    capture the essence of what the National Archives were trying to do with the History Matters campaign which is why I’d like to invite you to take a look at a new website called “Map My London” which has just been launched by The Museum of London: (

    Map My London hopes to revolutionise the way the history of the city is gathered and displayed. Even though you live in Kettering, it would be great if you could take a look at the site and see if you would be interested in getting involved with uploading your impressions and memories of the capital, to help us create an emotional memory bank.

    You will be able to upload your experiences about the city onto the Map My London site under headings including “Love and Loss”, “Beauty and Horror” and “Fate and Coincidence”.

    The site will support contributions in the form of text, digital photographs, video clips and sound recordings and the best thing is that you will be able to have a link directly to your own personal map to put onto your blog.

    If this is something that you think that you’d like to get involved with, please visit I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on the website.

    Kind regards
    Rax, Museum of London
