Day 80 – Around my blog in 80 days
I can’t believe I’ve managed 80 days of talking to or about myself, and the things that interest me. In the beginning, it was a great way of charting the new year’s resolutions, the pain and the glory, and keeping track of my diet recipes. I was quite surprised how many I managed to clock up in the first month. Then life’s little ups and down’s crept in, and it became more of a diary, somewhere to express myself, but where I had to think first, write and reread carefully. I’ve also dreamed a bit, and done some reporting.
It’s been fun, hard at times (to find both the time and the inspiration), but a great self taught lesson on how to write again. Because after 13 years as an expat, I realised how much language I had lost. I can’t promise I don’t make spelling mistakes (or hit the publish button too early at times), but I think I’ve learnt to use a few more words and expressions again over the past couple of months. I hope I made a few people laugh, and nobody cry, and that I can manage another 80 days without running aground ……. here goes!
