blogging burnout / Uncategorized

I am not sure how long I have been blogging but it goes back a few years. I am at a turning point with it and not sure which way to turn. I still enjoy being part of the blogging ‘family’ but feel like I would like to tear mine up and start afresh. When I first started my blog I used to wear my heart on my sleeve and share my deepest thoughts. Even […]

Blogging / Meaning of life and that stuff / Photography / pressure to perform / Study / technology

This is my 1000th post! It has taken me a seven years to get here. It has become part of my day-to-day life. I don’t write all that often now but love to read other bloggers’ adventures and do the Photo Challenge most weeks. On 8 May I will be leading (as a volunteer) a University of the Third Age class of eight people (seniors) in Blogging for Beginners. I hope to be able to […]

There are HEAPS of manuals, videos, websites etc […]

I am a little obsessed with my ‘garden’ at present. The weather is warming up and I need to keep it well watered. I am enjoying being outside more, however, my blogging has suffered. This evening I found two frogs who willingly agreed to take part in this blog so I can  have something to write about! I couldn’t resist taking another photo of my colourful new pots and their bright flowers. PS For those […]

My closest friend

beautiful / Blog 2013 / Friends and family / Gratitude / love / Wisdom

Finish this sentence: “My closest friend is…” Someone who accepts me as I am Encourages me when I doubt myself Tells me I can meet my goals even when I am not sure what they are Reminds me I am strong Accepts me when I feel vulnerable Listens to stories from the past and ideas for the future Hugs me when I need love and affection Makes me laugh often Asks me about what is […]
