A Blogging Challenge Day One

After my return to Blogville yesterday I also spent some time catching up with other blogs that I follow. In a mad, crazy, creative moment I decided to sign up for the ‘Blog Every Day in November’ challenge from Rosalilium #BEDN. Now I am not promising to blog every day (though I will try) but I thought that having prompts would inspire me and give me some new ideas. It might even give my blog a bit of direction!

So, the first prompt is ‘Something New About Yourself’ and I thought oh bugger. The 3 people that read my blog already know me and I try to keep my crazy hidden from everyone else! But, hey, new people might happen along and it’s a chance to reinvent myself :) (it also showed how woefully out of date my ‘About Me’ page was!)

So, who am I? Directionally challenged, easily distracted, random collector, history lover, occasional cusser, underdog supporter, in-my-dreams yogini, creative crafter, book slut (I’ll read anything!), painfully introverted, mother of 3, wife, sister, daughter.

I love Reiki, Autumn and taxidermy. I don’t love crowds, rude people or peppers.

I’ve often wondered what it must be like to do something totally mad and follow your dreams – but then I’ve also dreamed about what it would be like to build a time machine and travel back to Elizabethan times with a Polaroid camera (probably I’d get burnt for sorcery).

Mostly I live an ordinary life, work, home, The Walking Dead and just sometimes I let the quirky out. I am constantly learning new things about myself - sometimes they even surprise me (I had no idea I knew all the words to 'What's New Pussycat'!).

If this hasn’t frightened you off yet then welcome! Looking forward to the challenge and discovering some new friends through the power of blogging!


  1. Good luck with the challenge!! How are you liking the new season of The Walking Dead?? I'm loving it but OMG GLENN!! >_<
    Have added you to my bloglovin feed. :)

  2. Thank you Marylin :)
    Yes - loving TWD and totally didn't see that coming, though I see there are lots of theories about where that might go in future episodes... Loved last nights episode too, am having to get used to watching all on my own since #2 son has gone off to Army camp :(

  3. Glad to see you are back! I enjoy your blog! I am sure that you have way more followers than you think!
