Turned out that it was all a dream

I keep looking at The Jamjar's calendar (over there in the righthand column) and thinking how lovely it looks all clean and uncluttered by the grey squares that indicate published posts. Nice attitude, Michelle. That calendar would look ah-mazing if it was peppered with grey boxes showing lots of posts you dingbat!

Perspective: I haven’t it.

 The Auckland Botanical Gardens have lots of signs and this one asked people not to cut the harakeke (flax) and I felt the same way.

Welcome to the New Year people! and to the first of my Sunday Updates for the year.

When I wrote Resolve at the end of last year, I was all ready to write this update and let you know how far along I’d got with my moving and eating and reading etc.

Then I did nothing over my holiday break. I’m not even joking.

One Tuesday I spent the entire day in my PJs with the curtains closed, on YouTube watching varieties of “50 Things You Didn’t Know About Harry Potter” or similar. And no, I didn’t just restrict that kind of YouTubing to that Tuesday. Did you know that there are people out there who actually think that Snape is a vampire, or that the entire Harry Potter story is a figment of Harry’s imagination? An imaginary character’s imaginary universe. Elaborate theory but understandable for a boy who lived under the stairs in a house with abusive relatives.

Today I’ve been out for a walk at the Auckland Botanic Gardens and made some pikelets upon my return. One might think that sounds okay until I admit that I was planning on vacuuming and then making scones! Plans? I has them. Stick to them I don’t.

My sleeping habits were terrible over the break too. Drinking too much coffee, staying up late then sleeping in too long into the day just ruins a heck of a lot of feng shui. Best days really do start with an early wake-up call but when I’m on my own and without work for structure, I just turn into a couch potato with an internet connection.

So thank goodness THAT’S over!

Well not really. I do feel like Online Couch Potato is my calling; but instead of following my dreams I will haul myself from my slumber in the morning and go to work like all the other spuds who start back to work tomorrow.

Hope your Christmas break has refreshed and revived you for a bright New Year.
