Don't mind me....

It's just the 1st anniversary - WOOOOOO of the existence this blog...or blawwg as I like to call it.

I have been rather quiet this week after noticing the date of an old post. I spent the last few days traveling over the last year of my life as a blog. I have to say I am really thrilled that I actually started it. I've never managed to keep any sort of journal before due to my gnat like attention span.

I was encouraged to start blogging by my good friend Mrs Neurotic - she wholly believed I should rant in the webworld rather than her ear and I secretly wanted to start my own Agony Aunt column as well as bitch about shit.

I started off talking mainly about my garden and love of all things that grow in the earth, about the renovations I was doing myself due to total lack of budget and employment, my ex partner Scorpio and his constant brushes with the law and the many antics of my son The Cyclone.

Since then, *sigh - I have lost my house and moved in with a friend (The Batchelor). I miss my garden terribly. I miss my Magnolia, my weeping Japanese Maples and my huge vegie patch with the 8 foot celery. I will restart my garden tips as spring gets closer - The Batchelor is frightened of dirt so I can't dig up his pristine, FERTILE lawn and jam in carrots or tomatoes anytime soon...but I'm sure I'll get over it come summer when I am enjoying many a vodka by the POOL. You win some, you lose some.....

I STILL haven't started Roller Derby, I'm very very very close to relaunching my Bach Flower business, and I'm hoping to get the Agony Aunt up and running soon.

It's been a fun year really, lots has happened and I'm just glad I wrote it all down - life moves fast. Thank you to my "old" blog buddies and those who drop a comment on my drivel. This is surely a place for my own stories.........but it's nice to know someone reads the things I sometimes put my little opinionated, potty mouthed heart into.

I leave you with my three four favourite posts of the last year -

Scorpio gets arrested for assault whilst vomiting

The Day the Dog Jumped Through The Window

Scorpio versus Aquaman

Parenting Separately

and a big CHEERS to all my new bloggy friends that have joined recently, and a special mention to NEURI. Thanks for finally coming out of the closet bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Here's one for you, and you, and you and you and you

When life give you lemons baby - REACH FOR THE TEQUILA!!!!!!!!!

What a year a blog makes, eh? I am like you, in that I haven't had the endurance/attention span/care factor to keep a journal more than a few months before. Blogging has been awesome for capturing, almost daily, the past 5 years of my life :)

I'm super-new to your blog/s, but I hope over time to get you know you some more. And I will be hanging out for your spring vegie patch tips! (I'm sorry you lost your garden, that would hurt badly)

Loved it then, loved it now.

You are a brave and highly entertaining chick Luce, even when you whine.

Love your work. xx
