And this is how I spent much of it – freezing my noo-noos off on the side of a windswept pitch watching Sasha play football.
Time for a hot bath and birthday cake!
So the school holidays are over, we’re back from our wonderful holiday in Italy and I’m back in blogging-action. Horrah! I missed you all.
This blog is now officially 1 years old! Sing along now:
Happy birthday to you
Squashed tomatoes and stew
You look like a bunch-of-words
And you really are that too.
(You might have to be of Bristish descent to get that!)
I love this time of year because, for me, it’s my New Year – complete with resolutions and fresh new starts. Last year I created this blog out of a commitment to turning around my relationship with happiness and abundance. I feel I’ve come a long way on that journey and by way of completion with my year here’s a list of the top 5 things I’d say I’ve learnt:
1) Writing blogs is fun
2) There’s a whole world of wonderful bloggers out there.
3) Writing about happiness is a great way of staying alert for it
4) Lists in blogs are de-rigueur
5) Summarising a whole years-worth of posts is impossible!
I love to spice things up for myself at this time of year, so from today I’m going to change my tagline from “How happy do I dare to be?” to “How concious do I dare to be?” I’ll talk about this more in my next post – it deserves it’s own platform, megaphone and green room, I feel – but basically my commitment and challenge this year is to have my dream world and my “real” world meet. Being with reality has never been a strong point of mine – in fact I’ve deliberately shied away from it but as I get longer in the tooth I’m realising lasting change and transformation can only happen when I use my dreams to fuel a concious interaction with the “what’s so” of things.
Intrigued? I hope so! As I say, I’ll tell you more in my next blog. In the meantime may I just say how lovely it is to be back.
Now, time for virtual birthday cake – (much fewer calories).
