Happy New Year!

I know it's the end of January. It's taken me this long to recover from the B Teach last year, and then a family holiday in Fiji, and then Christmas. Then I played a lot of mindless games for a while. Today the boys went back to school, and I feel a little more inspired, a little more in control and ready to actually implement my word for the year. My word this year, as I mentioned on Twitter, is Community.

After a year of sitting in front of a laptop, I'm keen to get involved with people again. I'll be joining the band committee at my son's school, because the band has been tremendous for him, and I'd like to give something back. I'll be trying to catch up with the people who live close by more often - people I've met through the kids' schools and neighbours. I'll also be trying to reconnect with the online communities I've been involved with in the past. As well as writing some blog posts, I hope to be reading them too! So, if anyone is still reading, say hi, remind me where your blog is if you have one and grab me on Twitter (username Shonias) if I'm not already following you.

No doubt I'll also be getting my ranty pants on - so much fodder recently! I've written dozens of posts in my head, hopefully I can some of them out and onto the page.


  1. I'm reading! And following. And like you I have lots of posts written in my head, but I need to get on with cooking dinner first....

  2. Hi Deborah! I know the feeling, I'm trying to get the red curry kangaroo to the independent stage before I have to go pick up Charlie from school. :)

  3. You're back on the blog! Yay!!!!

    I'm making David cook dinner tonight, I figure seeing as he's the only member of the family with no extra-curricular activities he can step up and help by feeding us once a week.

  4. That sounds like a very sensible policy. :)
