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.
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.

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.
