It’s me, Amanda. Yep, that ‘slightly unhinged one’ with a love for happy dancing, 90’s Lycra and cheap champagne.
Fear Not! I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth. I am still very much alive and kicking…
But before I pull the boombox from out of the attic and pop open that sweet champagne. I’d like to invite you into my new ‘humble’ abode. Come in and make yourselves comfortable. Have a little nose round, if you like. Place your feet into a pair of my sheepskin slippers and pull on a robe. Would you like me to fetch you a cup of tea? Coffee? A mojito with a side of fresh lemon?
… Too much?
I’m sorry. As you can tell, I am pretty darn excited about my ‘brand spanking new’ website. You may have noticed some changes around here. I’ve redecorated a little. Spruced things up. Added some new cheesy selfies. It’s kind of the same, but different. Think “Amanda gets a new haircut”. I hope you like what you see… cause, y’know, I’ve only poured my heart, soul and livelihood into it.
Yep, building my own website has been, let’s just say,
soul destroying “testing”. I developed this love/hate relationship with my computer…
A repetitive wheel of love and hate that carried on for *cough* a month, and then, *guilty face* I just took 3 months off. Y’know… To recover and restore the brain cells that became mushed by a continuous string of computer jargon…
But it wasn’t all “sitting on my arse and twiddling my thumbs” As you know, life has this tendency to pull the rug from our feet. This generally happens when we are least expecting it. It then laughs at our expense as it watches us scramble, hopelessly, back to standing position.
To say the past 4 months have been a rollercoaster would be an understatement. Recently, I have found myself in the same place I was when I first started blogging – lost, confused and surrounded by rubble. But wait! Put those violins back in their cases. Today, as I pull on my spangling new party pants and dust off my boombox, I’ll be forgetting all of that …
I’ll be forgetting, quite frankly, the worst Christmas I have ever experienced… (Yep, rather impressively, topping that time I had a sickness bug, didn’t eat a scrap of Christmas dinner and spent the entire day in bed) But I’ll leave that for my next blog post! (All I Want For Christmas … Is a Divorce!) Okay, that sounds more dramatic than it turned out to be. Now the dust has settled, no divorce papers are needed…
Divorces aside, today is about celebrating my “slightly belated” comeback. It’s about moving onwards and upwards and saying…
“You know what, last year was pretty shit, but this year is going to be better!”
I’ve missed you guys no end and can’t wait to catch up with all your blogs. It’s true when they say “You don’t realise how much something means to you until it’s gone.” A life without blogging was like a balloon without air… I was just one deflated mess yearning for someone to blow life into my being.
Well, here I am. I’M BACK and ready to float to my hearts content.
But hey, I’ve been rambling on for far too long. Let’s crack open that sweet champagne and, yet again, make a fool out of ourselves on the dance floor…
IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK, GUYS!
Anyway, enough about me, what about you?
What have you been up to?
How was your Christmas?
Did Santa bring you anything nice?
Did you burn the turkey?
Are you relieved it’s all over?
What about New Years?
Did you do anything special to celebrate?
Have you made any New Years resolutions?
Okay, I’ll stop now… I’ve just missed you all so much and really want to know what’s been going on in my absence.
Before I stumble off tipsily to fetch myself, yet another, mojito…. I’ll leave you with this club classic!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
