Back From the Dead

I've been having a minor identity crisis. There has been an unhealthy abundance of umm-ing and ahh-ing going on in my life this past year; dark thoughts, life coaching, self-obsession, heart-searching, soul-searching, reflection, rumination, oh, that sort of thing.

I've started several new blogs and given them up because they just weren't ... well ... me, so I've come back here where I started. And very nice it feels too.

The intimate details of my little trip around WhoTheHellAmI? would be as dull to you as waiting for a bus that never comes in the rough end of town on a rainy Sunday afternoon, so I won't bore you with them now.

I will reveal, however, that I now have an A5 sheet of paper with a 5-year life plan on one side and a 20-year plan on the other. It's laminated, and tucked inside the front of my diary. Sad, maybe? But it works for me.


  1. Welcome back to this blog.
    However you have always been who you are and always will be no matter what you call yourself.
    Do enjoy your life and don't worry too much about the future. I have had to learn a bitter lesson in that & reflect about all the time I wasted worrying!

    Nuts in May

  2. absolutely. life plans are good, no matter the vehicle for recording them. welcome back!

  3. Dumdad, lovely to hear from you - thanks for coming back!

    Maggie, you are right about me worrying too much - my new ambition is to enjoy the here and now more :-)

    Laurie, hello again! And thanks.

  4. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
    This blog was never broke (to me).

    Welcome back.

  5. Welcome back!

    So I'm confused now...I seem to remember you were moving last time around so are you still in the South or did you Go Back North?

  6. Thumbelina, thank you - so kind!

    Nappy Valley Girl, we did move, from one rental to another in the south (our house up north has only just gone back on the market again). I am often confused myself, to be honest!
