Yes, I’ve been listening to Macy Gray. Sorry. Once I get lyrics in to my head, they won’t disappear until I weave them in to a blog post. But ‘games, changes and fears’ seems apt as today, I want to talk about resolutions and goals for the year.
So, the time has come. For a break. Yes, this is my last post for 2018. And it’s also my last post before I start something new. When I started this blog back in 2014, it was without much of a plan or an intended direction. It was simply a way to keep writing, to keep learning, and to keep my brain ticking over until the boys started school and I could possibly think about returning to work.
In just over a week, I will have been writing this blog for four years. Four whole years of putting fingers to keyboard and sharing stories, situations, interests and interiors. Go back further than that and I used to write the occasional post on another blog about the highs and lows of living abroad - it doesn't exist any more so I can't point you in its direction, sorry.
And way before that, in my pre-baby days, I worked on setting up blogs and writing posts for one of the biggest companies in the world (my speciality was penning encouraging words of wisdom on behalf of male Vice Presidents, mostly German but sometimes American, and often in their mid 50s ... niche, right?).
