Here we are again. After a six week absence, I’m back. And ready to rock n’ write! 😀
The last six weeks have been fun and eventful. Kids out of school for six weeks, our two-week family holiday to France, Scottish family visiting for three weeks, our six week bathroom remodel now well underway (complete with the discovery of asbestos and the need to demolish an extra wall). And, as usual, I’ve been hanging on to the merry-go-round with the help of the Flylady 🙂
But I’ve also had time to think about what I want to do with the blog ‘this time round’. I started it on 1 August 2009 because I wanted to get some things down on paper, have a safe place for all my best ideas and recipes – and all the other random thoughts that pop into my head. My own little world. I managed 333 posts in a row, had a whale of a time and suddenly found myself with some (faithful) followers!
I had an interesting chat recently on twitter with my lovely ‘twister’ Krista. (She has a great blog, I link to her often, go look!) It was about where and who we wanted to be next month, next year etc. I told her that I was constantly striving to be – just like the adverts claim – the “New, improved Diane. Concentrated.” As in ‘not diluted’! ;D
So that’s exactly what I’m aiming to do with the blog this year. Fewer posts. More content. More Me.
I’ve missed writing the blog and humbled that you seem to have missed me too. Thank you all for your lovely blog/facebook comments and tweets… You’ve made me shed a Mum tear or two!
Hope you have a marvelous Monday!
