The title is an ode to one of my favourite Sesame Street characters, Grover, he has such a happy and cute personality, I’d like to think I was like that too, but I’m not…first of all I’m female and thanks to our New Zealand summer I’m a nice shade of tan right now.
Well that’s two snippets of info about me another is I have the attention span of a gnat…hence the short and sweet posts, though I’m hoping that will improve with the blogging course I’m taking.
I really enjoy the new year…the madness of Christmas is over and there’s time to breathe, rest and relax. I spent the day with family and friends, enjoying a BBQ, chatting, laughing and talking about all the possibilities the new year can bring…
I was distracted by the fireworks exhibition at New Brighton Pier last night so today is a ‘twofor’ post…I’m not sure if that’s areal world but I think it’s a great description for two posts in one.
Now I know dandelions aren’t strictly flowers but I really like their ethereal qualities they remind me of the way the fireworks fall from the sky. One good breeze and those fluffy little seed heads will be scattered to the four winds.
Most Kiwi’s and Aussies know what the first Tuesday in November means it’s Melbourne Cup Day, the race that ‘stops the nation’. Synonymous with the race are the roses which are at their peak at Flemington Racecourse and in an omage to the day I’ve picked a rose growing in my friends garden. The scent is divine and the colour strong and bold
With the arrival of the royal baby I’ve been really annoyed with headlines which refer to his Mama as Kate Middleton. That’s who she used to be, her name and title have taken on a whole lot grander tone these days and I think the least the media could do is actually get it right.
Well hello there, so much has happened in the past 12 months I’m really not sure were to begin so I will start with why I have been absent from my blog for so long.
At the beginning of 2012 I had decided that I would start posting on a regular basis, however when I discovered a lump in my breast in February last year, I had no idea the direction my life would take. By March I had been diagnosed with breast cancer and had undergone a mastectomy followed by five months of chemotherapy and finally 25 sessions of radiotherapy. Ironically it was treatment for breast cancer
which caused me to feel unwell prior to my diagnosis I was well and now that I have finished treatment I am feeling fantastic. I truly believe that treatment has been successful!
So long for now and we’ll catch up again real soon okay!
Well HELlo, been way too loooong since I was here (had to reset my password loooong)!
Do I catch up on the past 12 months, the good, the bad and the ugly, or just start from this moment on? Honestly, I prefer option 2, the New Year seems like a time of renewal and new hope. Yes that feels right so this is the beginning once again!
So Welcome to my blog. I am looking forward to the footprints I may make this year, anything is possible and the future is unknown so I am looking forward to a few surprises. I have a major decision to make, get a new job or commit to studying full-time??? What to do?? Who knows, lets find out together.
