Hurry up and get here 2014!

I’m not sure I know where to start: it has been a while. I think I have forgotten how to think, type and construct sentences so bear with me reader: if I still have any…

Ramblings, Spoken, Rara and Panda, to name but a few, I have missed sharing your ramblings (Rambly’s ramblings- nice!) and posting my own. I have forgotten how to write, but I remember that there is a lovely community on here: if it was a thing in the real world, this blogosphere, I imagine it would be a rather bohemian cafe, Β lined with books of every kind. Oooo, can I have waiters on skates delivering delicious cakes and cups of tea? I’d like a comfy seat in the corner please, where I can watch all the comings and goings of you beautiful people unobtrusively. It really has been 6 months or more since I posted: a really stressful time in which work took over my life and my health started to deteriorate. During this time, I let go, one by one, of all the things which made me, me, including writing, and become a sort of robot, shuffling through the days fizzing with stress, holding on to just enough energy to come home and be a mum. It doesn’t help that I am an all or nothing sort of person: if I can’t blog daily, I lose impetus; if I get a job which is overwhelmingly difficult, I throw myself into it determined to conquer until I fall flat on my back.

However, all that is about to change- fingers crossed- I found a new job, which I start in Jan of 2014. It promises to be much less stressful and I am determined to start as I mean to go on, by being good enough at it, and letting myself grow into the role slowly, instead of throwing myself into it with an unsustainable gusto. I am also going to start blogging again and accepting that I won’t be able to do it every day, so once a week or fortnight is enough! I’m learning you see….

So, Happy Christmas to all: I look forward to catching up with your year and sharing some of the year to come albeit in bite sized chunks. It’s good to be back.Β

  1. You have returned!!!! I am SO happy to see you back and if it’s once a week or month – what does it matter ~ smiles. You have gone through a rough patch, evaluating your life, your job. Stress bubbles under skin like a volcano and then it erupts and we get taken to places where we haven’t been before. I am thrilled about the new job – though at first I did read it as Japan and not Jan (yes half asleep) CONGRATULATIONS! Now I think you have rested, you will tackle things differently. I am here if you want to email to vent/scream/rant away from the public forum – you know that πŸ™‚
    You have not lost the ability to write ~ you never will. Merry Christmas honey to you and your family. I am so so happy to see you back πŸ™‚ xxxxx

    • Thank you darling…I am thrilled to be back…I’ve just been mooching through my reader- so much to catch up on! Yes, I am going to do things a little differently: it’s been one hell of a year but like I said, I’m learning…loved the Christmas poem rambles: I could see it all unravelling in my head….hope you haven’t overdosed on the eggnog! Big hugs and blessings to you and yours xxx

  2. Yay, welcome back quiet-one πŸ˜€
    Good luck with the job Face… If ever you’re looking for work again, and if you’d consider full-frontal nudity… There’s a Panda here with your name on it… if that even makes sense πŸ™‚

  3. Nice to see your face, Face.
    Here’s to ’14 instead of ’13, the unknown instead of the known.

  4. I hope this isn’t a double post. I lost the first, I think.

    Welcome back to the world of the writing. Writing is good for the heart and soul.
    My last six months have been a tiny bit complicated. I moved with my family to France. Well. Perhaps it’s been ENORMOUSLY complicated. πŸ˜‰

    Love and hugs. Best for New Year.

    • Writing is good for the soul Alice, and we all need to polish the soul where we can. So lovely to read about your adventures in France….it sounds divinely restful and understated, despite the stress in getting there. Happy New Year when it finally arrives… πŸ™‚

  5. It’s the beautiful, fabulous Ace! So lovely to see you back. Congrats on the new job and happy Christmas!!

    • Aww rara, thank you. It’s good to be back. Happy festivities to you too! I see your readership has, quite rightly, grown and GROWN! Fantastic stuff! Next stop, running a small South American country? Tee hee…keep up the good work. You have a rare charm. Hope life is all dandy in the real world too πŸ™‚

  6. Welcome back – missed your Face, Face! A new job – congratulations! Looking forward to your posts. πŸ™‚
