      I’ve followed your blog for ages, but ever since you switched to partial feed, it’s become extremely annoying to click through. Hence, I won’t be following anymore! Tada.

        Hi there – thanks for your feedback. Sorry you find the truncated emails annoying – that certainly wasn’t my intention. I made the change so that I can gauge Wee Birdy’s correct readership – it shows me how many people are actually reading each post.

        Can you tell me why it’s so annoying? Many blogs I subscribe to have a similar subscription set-up, and the rest of the post is just one click away.

        Other than that it’s a shame that the only time you’ve felt compelled to comment on a blog you’ve followed for so long is one of criticism.

      What impeccable taste you have lovely! I just love the look of all of these things, but mostly the Pashley. I have/love a black Pashley Princess, but seriously contemplating trading it in for a pastel blue or pink Pashley Poppy in Spring.

      Hope you find some delicious presents under your tree!
