Timey Wimey Stuff

I was feeling a bit anxious coming back to this platform after taking a long (REALLY long) break. Not because I have nothing to say, but because there are so many of you I want to catch up with and it keeps building up. I read, a LOT. I’m following over 600 of you and can you imagine how many posts that adds up for the 3 weeks I was away?



I did manage to write Guest Posts for my blogger friends WillieSun and Kevin – One is about my Christmas traditions and the other is about my experiences with English Literature. Read Happy Merry to You and The Magic of a Story by clicking on those links.

Anyway, I decided to follow the one lesson I learnt in 2013 that made it such a good year for me – Baby Steps! It helped me be healthy again, helped me find an amazing job, helped me meet, fall in love and manage a nurturing long distance relationship, helped me stay sane when my baby sister got married, helped me travel in the UK for 2 months. 2013 also helped me get back into writing. Sure there were downs and many overwhelming situations but I got through it.

Talking about baby steps, we’ve had the first baby coming from my generation. My cousin is now the proud father of a little princess and that has got everyone emotional and nostalgic and full of hope. Which brings me to this crazy thing we call time. It’s so mind blowing how one little date on a calendar can have such a huge impact. We go through the year whining and being depressed and feeling down about all the things we should accomplish but never do. And then New Years comes along and everyone is full of hope and dreams and the motivation to make and stick to resolutions.

If this magical number January 1st is a feeling that we make up in our heads, then if we really put our minds to it, how many do overs can we give ourselves? How many things can we tick off our lists just because we tell ourselves – TODAY IS A NEW YEAR!

And so, that is my resolution – I will not let things overwhelm me, because babysteps will take me to the podium and when I feel stuck, I will create a new year for myself and just go for it.

I hope your 2014 has been good so far. Looking forward to the coming year, travelling by your side.

        1. Those look like really exciting travel plans. Is there room in your suitcase for one more? πŸ˜‰ Exciting times and yes, I’m pretty much in the job I’m in now for the same reasons!


              1. Furthest ive ever been if busselton to adelaide, four day drive with maybe a pop. density of 10 per square km in the middle their. First time outta the country. You know what they say? Go hard then go home.


                  1. Nah I’m going with some really cool people, and they are; my girlfriend of 6 years ASTEROID, her sister SAMMY, her girlfriend HAYLES, as well as our mates POTATOMAN and FIREMAN CLAM… yes we all have weird names its not just me.


  1. Great to have you back. Darling and I were talking of your absence only earlier today. May 2014 bring you everything you wish for and even better than that, everything you deserve.

    Happy 2014



    1. Thank you so much Darling and you, dear Sir. Hope you’ve had a good 2014 so far. May this year bring you closer together (physically. I doubt you can be closer in any other dimension). Hugs to both of you xx


      1. We were very much a part of each other’s holidays – as much as we could be. It was nice. A far cry from the past 14 years, no?

        Sir makes me all gooey – like the inside of a warm chocolate, double chocolate chip, fudge brownie. Heehee.

        ~ Darling


        1. I know what you mean. I’m in an LDR as well and managing that should be a skill to be acknowledged in resumes. And damn it. I’m craving chocolate now πŸ˜€ I mean, thank you πŸ™‚


  2. I don’t have a clue how you keep up with 600 books, sounds way too many for me. Happy new year though and welcome back even though I had no fear you wouldn’t be.


    1. You’re the voice in my head that tells me to write when I’m slacking off. This is a fantastic thing. It’s 600 blogs I follow. I can’t cut them down cause they’re all so great!


      1. I like the idea of being the voice in someone’s head, haha. Well obviously you can’t cut them down but I really don’t know how you do it πŸ™‚


  3. Nicely written , and congrats on finding love, and congrats to your cousin for the new baby. I wonder what Matt Smith dancing like crazy has to do with your post though. The other two pics of course made sense. Especially ‘Calvin & Hobbs’.


  4. It has been a while. πŸ™‚ I love how you mention that you will create a new year for yourself when you feel stuck. I guess that is exactly what I need to start doing. Thanks for the heads-up!
    And Happy New Year to you!! May 2014 be your best year so far! πŸ™‚
