My 500th Post & Friday Fill Ins

This is the momentous milestone of our 500th blog post. I never realised when I started the blog in 2012 that it would still be going six years later. I’ve always loved writing and journaling, so I see the blog as an online journal where I can share thoughts and moments with whoever cares to read it.

During these 500 posts we’ve shared our travels and days out, and our move from London to the Highlands of Scotland. We’ve said goodbye to cherished friends and welcomed new ones into our lives. Two precious furbies have travelled over the rainbow bridge but we also were lucky enough to adopt two gorgeous (crazy) animals into our family.

I’ve probably driven some of you mad with my soppy posts about my beloved, but he is the silent partner in this blog and I couldn’t keep it up without his support, perfectly made coffees, and him taking on the role of my personal ideas man.

Today is also Friday so it’s time for the Fill Ins which are hosted by Ellen at and Lorianne at Four-Legged Furballs who provide the prompts in bold and the rest is by me.

1. My favorite subject in school was a toss up between English and Music. I’ve always loved reading and writing about things so that’s why English was something I loved – it also helped that for at least two of my highschool years I had a really good teacher who was incredibly encouraging.

2. An extracurricular activity I participated in was the concert band – I played the flute. Then when I went onto secondary college I was in the choir – so all my extracurricular activities were music related.

The high school concert band – I’ve put a pink diamond on me

3. I want to learn so many things but the top two on my list would be to speak another language fluently and to play a new instrument.

4. It takes courage to challenge yourself to do something new, as there is always the risk of failure. One of the quotes that I try to keep in mind when doing something new is: ‘A life lived in fear is a life half lived.’

Do you have anything that you’d really like to learn? Before you go, do hop over to our hosts blogs to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with.

Until next time, be good, stay safe, and try and use less plastic this week.

  1. Happy Blogversary, Pamela! 500 posts are no joke, you've put some blood, sweat and tears into your blog – and you'll get a chance to talk more about it on Thursday ;-)))1. My favorite subject in school were languages. Our regular classes were held in German, so English, French, Italian (and Spanish) were my favorite subjects. I did like geography, too.2. An extracurricular activity I participated in was Badminton and modern dance, think \”Flashdance\” for beginners ;-)3. I want to learn to say no to low priority tasks. I tend to want to get it ALL done, and I never finish…4. It takes courage to leave everything behind and start over.Have a wonderful weekend!


  2. Congrats on 500 posts! And 6 years of blogging- here's to many more. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am sure you could easily learn another instrument being that you can read music. It is never too late. Have a great weekend! XO


  3. Congratulations on 500 posts! That really is a wonderful achievement. And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! English was my favorite subject, for the same reasons you mentioned. I love the quote you shared in #4. How true it is that if we let fear lead the way, we'll miss out on so much. Have a wonderful week!
