Catch Up x

I just reached 100 followers. Eek! πŸ˜€

I cannot believe 100 people actually care about what I have to say. It is as humbling as it is exciting! I’m not gonna lie it’s definitely a confidence boost and I can’t wait to tell my loved ones how I reached the big one hundred. It actually makes me feel like i’m good at this. I enjoy writing so much and it makes me feel proud to know that i’m inspiring or at least entertaining others, especially since I gain so much motivation and inspiration from other blogs.

I also feel connected. Connected in the sense that 100 other people share, at least similar, interests with me. 100 other people around the world can make sense of my erratic and incoherent mind and honestly it’s nice, it’s like I have 100 new acquaintances. I know this blog needs refining to appeal to many people but I just wouldn’t enjoy writing any other way. My writing is strange, I veer off topic and the title will never relate to everything in the post. How anyone keeps up with me I don’t know. But you do. You guys get me.

You are all welcome for tea anytime. Promise.

Since we are here I may as well update you on things and stuff. As you know we are moving cross country and whilst clearing out some things I found a mystery box. Not as exciting as it sounds however. It was full of clothes i’d put away during project 333 (for those that don’t know project 333 involves having 33 items of clothing and putting the rest in storage) well this was that storage. I had literally forgotten all about it. I don’t even know how long they’ve been in this corner of the spare room. So they went to charity, I didn’t even look in the bag. Go me. πŸ˜€

I also donated a ton of other bits I didn’t want. It always surprises me when just as I think i’ve pared down everything possible I emerge with more bags and boxes. Where does it all come from?! And why can I never pare everything down in one go? Why do I keep things and then donate them next week? I think some of it is to do with impulses.

Sometimes I get so frustrated with the amount of stuff I own I just want to donate it all! But I can’t. Because i’m too attached. But sometimes I can be ruthless and it’s when I get that impulse of frustration that turns me into Marie Kondo on speed. If it’s not beautiful or useless then it leaves the house. Immediately! Or at least as quickly as I can…

Another thing that irritates me is the big things. The big, expensive pieces like art, furniture and gym equipment. These are harder to get rid of because you can’t post them as easily and they are too expensive to simply “get rid of”. I would recommend to just promote things like this, post them on eBay and then advertise on sites such as Gumtree and Craiglist.

I literally feel like I haven’t stopped for days. I have so many loose ends to tie up before I leave. I need to get my hair done, omg I forgot to tell you! I went blonde! Well Blorange. Hence the salon visit. I’ll show you when it looks nice. :’)

I promise we will have a proper catch up soon! I also have a book review lined up. πŸ™‚

  1. Congratulations on your first 100! That is too cool, and so well deserved. I love the real-ness of your blog! Especially your last post on Privacy. I think you’re wise to do what you’re doing. Yeah, it’s tough unplugging completely. The concept of digitally detoxing as much as possible is an excellent one πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜ŠπŸ’—

      1. Amen, sister πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ. We’ve given a lot of thought to going off-grid, too. Right now it’s not feasible for us, but at least we’ve given serious thought and we have a few plans laid out 😊. Like you, we’re clean-nosed, law-abiding, hard-working honest people; it’s just that we don’t want the whole world all up in our lives, you know? It’s pretty scary how much data can be collected and by whom and for what purposes these days! 🌺🌟🌷

        1. Yes just being mindful of living more sustainably will make a difference πŸ˜€ I’m so glad it isn’t just me! It is scary isn’t it?! When I posted this I was thinking ahh I sound like a loon. :’) xx

          1. It is scary indeed! Nope, you’re not alone πŸ’™. I’m very weary of Big Bro; I don’t think Orwell’s “1984” was without merit! And according to many of my friends, I’m not weary or careful enough (!) 😊. Anyone who thinks you sound like a loon simply isn’t paying attention πŸ‘πŸΌπŸŒΊπŸ’“
