Well, hello there!
oh. You’ve all gone home. Well that I can understand. After all, it’s been 6 months of radio silence.
I feel as though there is so much to tell (ohsomuch), but then it could take me days to unravel it all into comprehensible sentences.
So t’other day, I sent out a wee newsletter, which explains a few things and also where I’m at.
Including where I’m at in the blogosphere (with a trail of breadcrumbs through the forest). As well as where I’m at in the chop wood, carry water life-world.
Because I’m writing elsewhere now. Although I reckon that Broom will always be here, as I have a soft spot for the creaky, lop-sided old place.
in fact, I’ve been blogging on the Dark Side for a smidgen over a decade now. My word.
And so much has changed since then. Back in 2007, when Broom was in its blogger incarnation, I was a full-time academic on the edge of sanity, with a tiny daughter just starting school.
Now I’m no longer an academic (thank the gods). I’m still on the edge of sanity (but quite happy to be there); because I think it’s generally a healthy response to a world gone mad.
It’s also because I am a Lady with Cats.
And I now have a teenage daughter who is going to go trekking off to Bolivia next year, and who regularly gigs about town as a muso.
And despite all the challenges, things are pretty good overall. The best stuff about my life being the people. That’s been the biggest transformation over the past decade – the who, not just the what and the how.
And my home too – dear old Rapunzel’s. She’s in desperate need of a new kitchen, but there are few fairytales that I know of that contain swish kitchens.
I love me a kitchen like Nell’s in Legend – do you remember?
Anyway luvs, if you’d like to catch up – and I would so love that, (if anyone’s about), then maybe sign up for my not-particularly-newsy-newsletter, grab a cuppa, and we can take it from there.
Warmest wishes to you, and remember to dance like no one is watching. Because someone always is watching, but who cares?
