The Bed Day 7 & Blogging
Wed 2nd, Sep, 2009
Well girls, it is Day 7 of the confined to bed regime, thanks sooo much for all the comments, suggestions and your lovely well-wishing emails. Love that.
If you visit here much you’ll know for someone like me, being in bed like this is pure torture, I have been pretty much in my pj’s for a week in the bedroom, on the sofa or outside on the lounger.
It’s never felt right to me to lollup around ill, I rather cope with life by keeping busy, doing silly things like hauling old furniture into my car and painting it white and making videos of dressing tables.
I have however had a big old lot of time to think prompted by a conversation on my one outing this week to the beach, with lg. Mostly, very self-indulgently about me and where I’m going.
All I came up with with all that thinking is I know that I feel a whole lot of change in the air.
You know, I have always been one for not sticking at anything much in my life, as I get closer to 40 I see that characteristic more and more, whether it’s decorating styles, hobbies, food, houses. I looked at the blog as someone who might read it (normally I tend to post, read the comments and move on) and wondered how on earth, someone like me who with most things is very much take it or leave it and has a massive flurry of enthusiasm at the start of something and then zaps the whole thing to oblivion, has kept this little place to let off steam for over a year?
But less of that, (don’t want you thinking I might poof away in one quick hit of the delete button) and onto change that you might be interested in – well for one we are moving onto Stage II of renovations very soon – we will be starting with the front of the house which will be clad with boarding, the roof which will be either replaced or re-finished, a fence to the front which will most probably be white picket and a new deck to replace the small skinny steps to the front. This will all, tradies and budget permitting start in the next few months.
And secondly, changes to this blog will occur, firstly just about communicating, it’s been on my mind for some time – if you leave a question in the comments, which thank you many do, from now on I’ll answer it in the comments section (though you can of course continue to email me privately and I will as before answer in double-quick time *wink right back to your inbox). For a while I have felt too guilty that those who take the time to comment and leave a question who I have very much intended to personally email but never have the time, so from now you’ll see me too in there in the comments…
I’m also cooking up some other stuff for the blog…
So I leave you with those plans whirling round my head as I skit between the bed and the outdoor bed, sorry I don’t think there’ll be any DIY, paint, projects or makeovers this week.
If I see another bowl of chicken soup, another drip of tea tree oil, another slice of garlic or watch another Dr. Phil you might just hear a loud bang from Down Under…
