Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 300 – Tercentenary!

Thank you for sticking with Spidey and me for the last 300 (ish) weeks!

Ritu Bhathal

Wow!

Spidey. You and me for 300 weekly posts. That is kind of mind blowing, isn’t it?

I thought, this week, we would just go back to the origins of Spidey’s Serene Sundays, especially for all you newer followers!

Way back when… 300 ish weeks ago, I was relatively new to blogging. I had fallen into this blogisphere, to be honest, and I had no clue about what to write. I used to post randomly. There was an awful lot of stream of consciousness posts, though I wasn’t aware that was their name. And I’d post random stuff. Silly pics, anecdotes, my thoughts.

No rhyme, nor reason.

One Sunday morning, I went to visit the bathroom, as you do, and I was greeted with the sight of Spidey, as above, sitting on the bathroom window sill, in deep meditation.

My son, Lil Man, was obsessed with all things Spidey, at that age. It was a fixation that lasted for a good few years. It meant that pretty much every place in our house had something Spidey-themed. From plates and cups in the kitchen, to Spiderman toothbrushes and flannels in the bathroom, duvet covers in the bedroom, to a wardrobe filled with Spidey tops, tracksuits and even undies! (These were all my son’s, one anyone else’s I hasten to add.

Even my in-law’s house wasn’t missed. There were toys, and even a dress up outfit there, too.

In fact, Spidey was even there in his learning, with Spidey Learn to Write and Learn to Count books, and even special reading books!

So, that morning, I didn’t bat an eyelid at Spidey sitting there, as I performed my morning ablutions.

Then, as I went about my day, an idea hatched in my mind. Spidey was looking so serene, and full of wisdom, why not incorporate him into a regular post?

And so, Spidey’s Serene Sundays was born.

300 (ish) posts, (ish, because I may have missed a week, here or there, and misnumbered in the past – come on. I am human, after all!) and here we still are. It has been wonderful, discussing inspirational quotes with Spidey, and filtering our thoughts here, every week, and I have some of you diehard readers, who don’t miss a single Spidey post, ever!

Here’s to another 300, eh!

So… tell me, how long have you been a reader of Spidey’s?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week!

    Watching family together is a heartwarming feeling in itself. 💙 The joy, the excitement, the timeless moments.

    Thank you sooo much for this post, Ritu. I am a latecomer to Spidey. When I started following you (lucky me) I thought your Spidey posts were for a select group. Thank you for opening Spidey to me, too. This backstory was a pleasure to read!

    Congratulations, Sis! Definitely a milestone, with Spidey’s wonderful quote. If you are asking me for how long i have read Spidey i have to say only a few years. Then i admediatly started only reading court complaints, and the Bible. Lol
    In the UK you are blessed, because after your ending of the lockdown, here we are starting another one, on Wednesday. Have a beautiful evening, Michael

    Just over half would be my guess, but it’s probably more. Time flies in the blogosphere.
