Well hello there from Mezzie at Back in G Town. This sounds a bit like confession but my last post here was on the 28th of July 2013. That's nearly 6 months and the longest I have ever gone since starting this blog in May 2011. Truth be told I am not sure whether to keep it going or perhaps start a new one. I kinda lost my blogging mojo there for a while. Life pretty much took over (not a bad thing) and a lot has happened in the last 18 months or so. I was retrenched from my job of 18 years, moved into a new house, went back to uni and became a primary school teacher! Yay! I think I have just needed a break from thinking too much and from the constant state of being out of my comfort zone!
I am happy to report that I have even secured myself a full time teaching job for this year which I am amazed, a bit overwhelmed and very excited about. I have exactly 2 weeks left of holidays before I start! Woo Hoo!! I am LOVING the holidays this year, given that this time last year I was studying all through the summer break. This is awesome!! We just got back from a week on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and there is NOTHING that I can complain about there!
Be Enthusiastic (rather than scared)
Celebrate (as much as possible)
Balance (try to have some)
Perspective (try to keep it)
Exercise and eat well
Socialise (many more catch ups with friends and family!)
Sleep (have a better bed time routine i.e bed by 11pm, not midnight and beyond!)
Read (at least one book but more would be good)
So that 's where I'm at...about to launch into a new career in teaching while my baby starts her education too. It's definitely a new chapter for me. I am grateful for Back in G Town for helping me reconnect with my creative side, for inspiring my love of photography, for the ability to have documented so many fabulous memories, for helping me to deal with grief, for the new friends that I've made and for helping me to grow to love my old home town again.
I do feel like I am finally home.
* A huge thank you especially to Miss Mandy from A little Space Like Home for being my blogging buddy, graphic artist, helpline and for inspiring me along the way. I am grateful for the friendship and inspiration.
