On Sunday afternoon, whilst hubs took a nap, I tried to catch up on my favourite blogs. All of a sudden I was wondering what I have posted the previous year and the year before on that specific date.
I came to realize that my blog changed quite a lot. I the beginning years of my blog I used to post some jokes and other funnies. I also posted pics of my table settings quite often – can anyone still remembers that?

On 19 June 2010 I posted this recipe for Roghan Josh
On 19 June 2009 I posted this funny about a dog!
So what did you post on this day in previous years?
