I know, I know; it’s only been a month since I last did a ‘taking stock’ post. I just thought that seeing as Ive been pretty down lately, it might be a nice idea to take some time out to think about the things going on around me, in the hopes that it might give me some perspective.
I am going to try my best to avoid being sarcastic and flippant and to answer each question as honestly as possible. I’ve recently realised that I used humour as a shield when I’m feeling vulnerable, but instead of sounding funny, I end up looking like a huge bitch… Continue reading →
It’s been a while since I posted here last. Not because I haven’t had anything to share with you guys (I’m always been jotting down ideas of things I think will be neat to write about); it’s just that I’ve been pretty down lately and haven’t felt like doing much aside from curling into a ball and watching TV when I get home from work most nights.
Today, I decided that I had moped around for too long, and that really needed to shake off this bad mood and just write something; anything. I was a bit stuck about where to start, and I figured a Taking Stock post (huge thanks Laura Laura for the idea) would be a good starting point.
I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year already (there’s even less time until Christmas; only three whole days to go); I feel I say that every time I make a Monthly Summary post, or update you on how things are going, but it’s true. The older I get, the faster time flies.
Seeing as it’s almost the end of the year, I figured now would be a good time to go over the goals I set myself at the beginning of the year and see how I got on (I made a mid-year recap, which you can read here). Continue reading →
Lately, I’ve been feeling as if I haven’t let you guys see much of the real me. I’ve been blogging regularly, but I haven’t really shared too much of what’s happening in my life. So I decided it might be nice to do a life update of sorts, and share a bit of what’s currently going on.
At the moment we’re painting/doing up our apartment, we painted my office a while ago and started on the bedroom in the weekend. I absolutely LOVE the feature wall (it’s the wall behind the bed, I don’t know what it is but the colour makes me so happy; I could stay in here forever if I could), so far, we’ve only painted the one wall (and a bit of the ceiling) but hopefully we’ll get more done this weekend and I’ll have some more photos to share with you.
I’m not sure how long it will take to paint/fix things around the apartment – we’re going painting every room, and will be fixing a few things around the place as well (bathroom tiles, sealing the bath again fixing the kitchen cupboards etc). Continue reading →
Today I bit the bullet and started a Facebook page for my blog. I have been thinking of starting one for a while but kept on putting it off – I don’t have many followers so didn’t see the point and I’m really bad at self promoting (I think it’s a New Zealand thing, tall poppy syndrome and all that).
Recently, I have been blogging quite a bit and decided that an ‘official‘ page might clear up the news feed of people who don’t really care too much about my blog and would skip over it anyway.
As much as I hate promoting myself. I thought I may as well shamelessly plug my page, because, why not? So, please, like my page; it would mean a lot.
