Bless me blog world for I have sinned.
Its been two months since my last blogpost.
These are my excuses….
OK, so there is a small chance that the first communion preparation for Number Two is rubbing off on me a bit. But nonetheless it has been a full two months since I last wote on here. No Advent Craft Swap roundup, no Merry Christmas post or 18 from 18*, no new year’s resolutions or turning 40 posts. I mean I had it all planned out in my head. When it came down to it though, there always seemed to be something else going on. For a while I was wondering had I actually really stopped blogging, the way I stopped learning Spanish after several years. But hey, look, I’m back. Hello!
We’ve kind of gone past the point of it making sense for me to wish you a happy Christmas or all the best for the new year, haven’t we? All the last-weeks-of-my-30s angst and hype has passed now, so I’ll not bore you with that. I think that whole situation can be summed up as follows. I wasn’t 40 and didn’t want to be 40 but now I am and it is grand, nice in fact. So there you go.
To be honest, I had a bit of a list of things I wanted to do before I turned 40. Some I managed (reading OMG What A Complete Aisling), others I didn’t (getting a will and pension sorted). So there’s my goals for this year right there – sort out the morbid kind of stuff you don’t want to be bothered with when you are young and sprightly.
Joking aside, I had fully intended to re-read Sinead’s brilliant list of adulty (her word, not mine) things to do and get cracking on the ones I hadn’t done yet. Just now I took a break from writing this to look up the list. I thought I might have one or two of the 17 items done. It turns out I have done 10 without even knowing! Only seven to go! I can tell you right now that there is a very slim chance of me getting the hang of
sleeping enough (13)
drinking enough water (8)
starting a makeup routine (12)
So really there are only 4 for me to concentrate on. I’ll do them now for my penance.
