It’s time to dust off those party pants, drag those speakers from out of the attic, and release those helium balloons. It’s a cause for double celebrations, that’s right, I said DOUBLE! It has been long anticipated but I can confirm, with a Cheshire Cat smile and a sparkle in my eye, my neighbours from hell have…

Drum roll, please….

…OFFICIALLY moved out!

 

I cannot contain my excitement! I have popped open that champagne and I am guzzling it down like a…

I’m doing my happy dance…

And so are the police…

I’ve FINALLY got my life back…

No more terrible music playing into the early hours! No more sleepless nights! No more pacing up and down in a delirious manner, muttering profanities and shaking my tiresome fist! No more fearing for my life as the police drive away and the neighbours begin to screech death threats into the street!

They have GONE. *Poof* …Never to be seen again!

Can I have a…

So, as one could imagine, I wasn’t best pleased when my peace was abruptly broken with a…

*Insert loud shouting*

*Insert loud music*

Nope, that last bang was actually the sound of my head against a brick wall…

Not to panic, the NFH (That’s neighbour’s from hell for those who don’t know!) hadn’t come back to live, they were just picking up a few things, you know, a crack pipe here and there. I was crying in my tea to say the least! But as they jumped onto their ‘heap of junk’ moped, a blood-stained mattress strapped to the back (Keeping it classy, as always!) I did one more victory dance for the road…

Nuisance neighbours aside, I want to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to every one of my 4000 followers! That’s right, I said 4000 followers! I say this every time, but what the heck…Never in my ‘wildest blogging dreams’ did I envisage reaching this milestone! *And cue the eye roll*. I am so flattered and grateful to EVERY one of you. A special mention to my blogging family. As Tina Turner once screeched, “You’re simply the best!” 


On a serious note…

A little time for reflection

 

I originally posted this on Monday the 11th, but quickly took it down when I learned Robin Williams had died. Suddenly, celebrating ‘followers’ felt trivial and unnecessary. Like many, Robins’ death put me in a reflective mood. I spent the majority of the week in disbelief and wrapped up in my thoughts.

More sad news came, when I heard my blogger friend, Ajay Mody (also known as Ajaytao) blogger of  http://ajaytao2010.wordpress.com/ had also passed away. Ajay was one of the few bloggers I read daily. Although I hadn’t known him for long (only 8 months!) it was clear just how loved and well-respected he was in the blogging community. I too, was touched by his kindness and warmth. He inspired me in many ways, and despite his personal struggles, he always brought positivity and light into peoples lives. I will miss reading his beautiful blog, and I know I am not alone when I say, blogging won’t be the same without him. I say this with deep sadness, Rest In Peace, Dear Ajay.

Gone, but never forgotten. 

 


Let’s clink our imaginary glasses and celebrate this beautiful blogging community. A blogging community which saved me in many ways, lent me a listening ear, made me feel less alone in this big crazy world, and inspired me more than I could ever imagine.

Thank you, thank you and thank you!

 

Now, let’s put on our disco shoes and hit the dance-floor to this old classic…

 

This one is for you, party people! Enjoy… xxx
