And hello to you, from my new home which is freshly hooked up to the internets, thus allowing me to be blogging once again! Oh how I have missed you all!
So much has happened since I last wrote.
I left you all after sharing the first part of the recent road trip my beloved and I embarked on, up to Byron Bay and surrounds to see family, friends and attend the Writers Festival. When I last wrote, I had two more posts to write about that particular road trip. You see, I hadn’t told you about my car breaking down in Macksville:
My beloved and I ended up spending a night in a seedy little motel room with questionable plumbing. We got the room with dodgey plumbing because as my car was being pushed across the road, three buses full of pensioners pulled into the motel car park. The car was patched up by morning, and we got home safely. However, the car hasn’t survived and is now back at the mechanics. We are seeking quotes for a suitable funeral.
I had also wanted to tell you about the things with faces that I spotted in my travels! Meet Birdy Fan Switch, and Smug the Bus!
And of course, I had a wrap-up of the Byron Bay Writers Festival to offer you!
But I didn’t get to do any of these things, because when we returned from our adventures, we had to get straight into packing. Yes! The Naughty Corner moved again! Did you know that a sudden and ferocious bout of gastro is the only acceptable reason to stop packing boxes? Or, that when your bestie comes to visit from interstate, she will absolutely help you pack and unpack and deliver and pick up and do it all without a word of complaint?
All of that brings us to now.
I have words to say about the passing of Robin Williams, but I am going to write them properly over the coming days. I also have stories of stuff for you, and a tale of red candles.
But what I also missed out on writing about, was the second birthday of this blog.
I had hoped to do some fandangled post relating to the birth of the blog, and I even collected topic suggestions on the Facebook page. But you know what?
The fact that I really missed writing the blog, and that I have really missed my awesome Naughty Corner fans on Facebook – that’s enough of a statement for me.
In two years, the blog has grown. Words and sentences and statements and quotes. Photos and stories and goals and dreams. Hearts on sleeves and tears in eyes. Laughter. Tears. Honesty. Realness.
Two years on, and I have no real niche. I have no idea of what genre my blog is, and apparently it is very important to have both a niche and a genre.
But I do have a passion for writing this blog. And I think it’s important to thank you guys for reading. I really appreciate it. I honestly, really do.
Thanks for humouring me.
Sleep well, and rest your eyes – because my god have I got some stories for you.
