BLOG ANNIVERSARY

Today marks 9 years of me blogging!
Nine years of putting myself 'out there'...and mostly, I've really loved it.

I just took a 'public break' from blogging.  I need to do that sometimes, just to take a break from the haters out there.

And there's a few of them let me assure you!

My new mantra:


A clever Doctor told me this exact same thing years ago... and he was right.  I just have to remember ... this too will pass, and soon enough all will be OK again.

It will be different, but OK.  Learning to let go ... JUST LET GO.

Today I'm going OUT for a walk.  I probably won't feel like it later on... but I know that I will feel better for it once I get out there.
I've spent way to long on me bum the past few days, just had no motivation at all.

Time to pull finger again.  Summer is coming and I would like to think I can be a bit lighter and fitter before the heat hits.

ONWARD...

10.23 am:  no walk.  I'm suffering from an upset tummy... and it's a bit 'risky' to think about going out for a walk.  I might need a bathroom midway!
No idea why my tummy is not happy?
*sigh*

Starting to really miss a lot of stuff we have in storage.  My sewing stuff mostly... Now I want to make a few Christmas things and all my fabric is in storage.  If we are here at Christmas time, we have no tree, no decorations, NOTHING!

And of course I'm paying hundreds of $$'s a month to keep everything in storage too.  So frustrating.

No word from the Estate Agents, which means no buyers yet.  Maybe with better weather coming it will bring some out?  I live in hope.

I'M SO SORRY I UPSET SO MANY PEOPLE BY GOING 'PRIVATE' FOR A WHILE with no warning.
I promise if I ever feel the need to take a break I will just say "TAKING A BREAK" and not go private. 

6.41 pm:   Stew is due home soon, dinner is in the oven.  Chicken Steaks and potato pom poms.  Oh hold on!  He just arrived home.  I better go get the dinner dished up!

End of Day:  well I was going to waffle on about a few other things today ... but kinda ran outta time.  Off to bed shortly.  Not even tired though.  Another night spent waiting to fall asleep for a couple of hours no doubt.  yaaa. Not.
nite nite

  6. Ditto all of the above. So glad I can have my daily fix of your life and times. Don't comment often - re your stored sewing stuff - anyway of accessing your storage and rescuing your fabric and Xmas things? Nothing worse than wanting to sew and you can't.

  8. So glad to see you back. I am hopeless at commenting, sorry. I love my daily fix of the Diet Coke Rocks house. Can you please warn us when you are going offline, because I am sure that I am not the only one who worried about you. In a strange way it feels like you are part of my life (well dammit you are part of my life!)

    1. We won't know if there are puppies DEFINITELY on the way for a while... maybe not until 3/4ers of the way through her 'time'. Dogs don't show for ages. Though it's pretty rare for a dog not to fall pregnant and particularly for such a young dog.

  15. Happy Blogiversary-9 years is amazing when you write every day-and more than once.
    Sorry to hear you are not well-there is a bug going around that you also get stomach cramps with so hope you have not picked that up.

  17. I really LOVE your blog. It is just so simple and real. I really like how you update everyday, sometimes even multiple times. So every time I come - something new is there to read. Keep it up. I would miss it if it stopped. We all have issues and it's comforting to know that we are not the only ones!

  18. Whoa! I'm glad it wasn't just me that was blocked! I had no way of sending a request to you to be on your list! I had Diet Coke withdrawal!!!
    Don't worry about haters~ They are simply miserable people. I am surprised you have any~
    Hope your tummy fills better! Hugs~

    Wow 9 years - congratulations! I can't believe where that time has gone - I still remember reading your first ever post - redirected from Janine's blog if I remember correctly. I have been reading ever since, except for 2 years when I accidentally thought you had stopped blogging! Turned out that my computer had frozen on you blog and wouldn't refresh. It was at a time when so many other bloggers were stopping and though you had too. Then 4 years ago I googled diet coke vs coke zero and your blog came up! I couldn't believe it - I then caught up on the previous two years of your life!!

    What a wonderful record you have of your life for the past nine years - all the pics and the ups and the downs. Not many people could claim to have such a wonderful account to look back on.

    Sorry I don't comment often - I usually read on my phone and the verifier is very hard to prove I'm not a robot on my phone!!

  26. Yeah wow 9 years Chris. It's been an awesome blog. You're a great honest writer! Glad you're back. I missed you.

  27. 9 years is quite a feat. Congrats.
    p.s. i'm only getting close to 8,000 steps a day. it's really hard to achieve 10,000 steps. once the haze clears, i'll do better.
