Another Year, Another Post

17 Oct

A year of blogging with WordPress has slipped quietly by. I can’t quite believe it. This has been the first time that I have ever recorded what goes on in my life and it’s been really good to be able to record and remember.


It has been a big year for us…the infamous first year of marriage and a new job. It’s been tough at times, but awesome all the same.

It’s also good to remember those funny moments which are so easy to forget over time too, like the day Josh lost his wedding ring, or when we chased a prize cockerel around the church grounds for an entire afternoon. See, it’s brought a smile to my face already!


As for living green, that has been great fun too! This time last year we were just getting our veg box for the first time. Since then we have been through various stages of loving organic food, hating it, giving up and shopping in supermarkets, and finally coming full circle and ordering our veg box again.

We’ve gradually found a balance of simple living that isn’t necessarily text book, but it works for us.


I wonder what I will be able to look back on next October? By that time we will have left Aberystwyth and could be anywhere(!). I look forward to finding out!

    I first started writing what would later become known as a blog back in 1994. It’s quite strange to look back at the material I wrote then and over the subsequent years. It’s also interesting to see how the underlying technology has developed and how the interface has changed over time.

    But what has proved to be strangest thing of all is that I finally got around to use Facebook and rediscovered a swag of old friends and work colleagues. Why is that strange? Because my life has changed regularly and interestingly over the years, while they’re still doing the same things as they were then. I find that really, really unsettling.

    Hmm yeah – I’ve done the same thing with people I knew 10 years ago.

    It seems funny to me too that some of the people I knew a while ago aren’t seeming to do much with their lives.
    However some of my old university friends probably think the same about me, doing a fill-in job in my university town – whereas I feel like I have moved on alot in the last year!

    As long as you’re content in your own life I suppose it doesn’t matter what you’re doing and where you are!
