It seems like only yesterday I was preparing to go back to university for my second year and I decided I might actually post something to a blog for the whole world to read. I was curled up on the sofa with one of my best friends, I remember it clearly. When I look back at that first post now, it feels as though I’m reading another person’s writing. That’s not surprising I suppose seeing as post one, chapter one was written OVER FIVE YEARS AGO!
Honestly? I’ve had a little of the writers’ block recently. I’ve felt like I need a whole new reason to start a whole new chapter, like I need a reason to write at all. I wrote Chapter One simply because I enjoyed writing it and you know what? I think it’s time I got back to that. Back to just writing for fun.
It’s 2018. Dun dun dunnn. I have to admit, it feels like forever and a day ago that I rounded up Chapter Three so if you need to nip back to Until further notice and have another read to refresh your minds then please do, I just did so myself.
Where to start?
I love my job, but going back to work after the Christmas break has been so incredibly difficult. I think it has something to do with the fact the weather is all doom and gloom. That and the fact it’s a whole ‘nother 11 months or so until Christmas comes around again and what else is there to get excited about until then!? The holiday ads are out in force and I’m not surprised. I’m perfectly happy right now, curled up on the sofa with candles lit and music playing, but I still can’t help wishing I were on a beach somewhere sunny.
Despite the current doomy gloomy weather situation, this year’s going to be a good’un. I say it every year, but this time I’m sure of it. I’m hoping for plenty more coffee dates with friends. Plenty more cocktail dates too. I’m hoping for more time spent making music. I’m hoping to read more books than ever. I’m hoping for more adventures abroad. I’m hoping for more adventures full stop. I’m going to spend more time walking and I’m going to join some classes. Fitness classes, dance classes, any classes. Perhaps even cookery classes?
I’m looking forward to this weekend heaps. I’m window shopping with one of my bestest friends on Saturday just like back in the good old days. I’m at a girly sleepover Saturday night with more besties. Sunday is Dave’s day off so I’m hoping we’ll have a wonderfully lazy day together.
It’s January. We’ve a cupboard full of chocolate and a whole year ahead of us and this year’s going to be a good’un. I say it every year, but this time I’m sure of it.
