I’ve been feeling a little reflective over the last couple of days, I’m enjoying writing again and the twists and turns that stories can develop as they take on a life of their own. Yesterday, I opted for a silly quiz as a fun post for my daily blog. Yet that was to distract me from the date (18th January)
Not that it has a negative connection. In fact it is the exact opposite. It is one of my milestone days and a day to silently celebrate to myself. I just didn’t want to write about this little event until the day after. That’s why you got a silly quiz thingy – However, that in it’self has got me thinking and has my whirling mind travelling off on little tangents of their own.
I digress – 18th January 1013 – Five years ago, my life changed for the best and I’ve never looked back. For this is the anniversary of me choosing a floating life and when I moved onto my boat.
Five years have skipped by swiftly and I was startled to figure out just how long it had been! Now I’m not confident in taking her out along the canals and waterways and I know I still have far to go in the way of decorating. This is a personal challenge I face an I have given myself until June to get the outside all painted and shiny.
If I turn that experience into a blog, it might actually give me the kick up the backside I need to get the work done and quit procrastinating – After all, procrastination was what I noted first as one of my worst personality traits. I don’t suppose it would make for interesting reading, but I could include photos in a kinda before/after style.
Writing every day gives me the chance to explore many aspects which surround me, my daily life, my thoughts and musings, adventures and story telling. So there is the fluctuation there in the freedom of expression to include home improvements – I mean after all, it is another adventure…
