Just Jot It January 5th – 2016 — January 5, 2016

Just Jot It January 5th – 2016

We have an interesting prompt for Linda’s Just Jot it January today, ‘2016.’ I don’t tend to think too far ahead ass regards to planning out my year, being more the type of person who sees where life takes me.However, there are a few things that I would like to this year. I

However, there are a few things that I would like to this year. I already have the idea for a follow-on novel to the one I wrote for NaNoWriMo, and it would be wonderful if I could manage to write that, bearing in mind, there is still a lot of work left to do on the original one.

I have my 50th birthday coming up next month and still have no clue of how I am going to celebrate that. I aam not one of those dare-devil types that wants to bungee jump or skydive or something. In fact, being terrified of heights, I can think of nothing worse. I would actually like to survive whatever experience I undertake!

I know I need to take more care of my health this year, both physical and mental. I have to face up to the fact that I need to stay on my meds for depression, and not to cut it right down when I think I am feeling better! I also need to keep my blood sugars under control. It still actually hasn’t sunk in properly that I am diabetic, and I really do have to watch what I eat!

I always enjoy new challenges so will continue to join in with whatever bloggy ones take my fancy. I also love taking the little mini courses run by ‘Open University’ to broaden my knowledge. I have an unquenchable thirst for learning new things, and I want to learn a bit about photography so that I can use mostly my own pictures on my blog.

Whatever this year brings, one thing is for sure, you will probably end up reading about it on my blog!

 

2015 in review — December 30, 2015

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

I would just like to say ‘Thank you’ to  everybody that visited my blog in 2015. I appreciate all your likes and comments, and the fact that you stopped by to read one of my posts.

As I am an ‘off the cuff’ kind of a girl, I am not sure whar I will be doing with my blog in 2016! I know that my ‘Free-for-all Friday’ is very popular as they were some of my most viewed posts, so they will be staying. I love taking part in challenges so will be continuing with those, particularly Ronovan’s and TJ’s Haiku challenges that I have become addicted to. I am also going to take part of Linda’s  ‘Just Jot it January’ posts. I will also have a go at anything else that comes along and takes my fancy.

So, in a nutshell, what you can expect from me in 2016 is more randomness, more silliness, a sprinkling of poems – and whatever else comes to mind!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 35,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
