…blogtober day 3 :: a me made road trip…

Back when we were making the final decision to homeschool, we had a discussion about excursions and the bigger things schools can offer than homeschoolers generally can’t. I knew, once we committed, that part of my job as the homeschool facilitator of the family would be to find alternatives, and make them happen. In the early days, we did lots […]

…blogtober 2022…

Much like blogging itself, the once popular Blogtoberfest has fallen by the wayside in the shift to instagram based microblogging. And yet, every year, I still find myself drawn to the familiar rhythm of daily blogging that is Blogtober. It takes me back to what feels like the “good old days” of blogging, somewhere in the depths of 2012, a […]

…blogtober wrap…

It has been a strange month. It both dragged, and flew by – much like the rest of 2021. After the three century long year that was 2020, 2021 has been weird flux of time. Blogtober has similar been a mixed bag. Some days the ideas and the words flowed. Other days I sat down at 8.30pm and realised I […]

…blogtober 2018…

Almost every year, going all the way back to 2012 (2013 I missed due to having a four week old baby, 2016, I’m not really sure why I didn,t do it), I have done a daily posting challenge in October, that back in the heyday of blogging and linky parties, used to be known as Blogtoberfest. It’s a great way, […]

…blogtober wrap up…

  Oh October, what a month you were! I ended up missing a week or so of my blog-every-day goal, after my computer died and mucked up my rhythm and my to-do list. BUT it was fun, nonetheless. It was lovely to be back in this space like the good old days. It’s given me momentum to keep up with […]

…blogtober 2017…

Back in 2012 and also 2014, I completed Blogtoberfest (plus a partial attempt in 2015), and it was such fun. Posting daily, meeting new bloggy friends, getting immersed in the community. As far as I can find on google, there isn’t an official Blogtoberfest this year, but that’s not going to stop me!! For the next 31 days, I aim […]

plans {fiction} {Blogtoberfest day 31}

Jo’s┬ánervous declaration of love still echoed around the kitchen, keeping Steve rooted to the spot. He knew he needed┬áto say something, the way she was peering at him, expectantly, then bashfully, the silence drawing out to the point of almost too long. Shit. This wasn’t part of the plan. She wasn’t supposed to love him back. He was in love […]

Birthday season 2015 {blogtoberfest day 9}

Tomorrow, my tiny girl turns five. FIVE! She is full of chatter and so excited to be going to big school, that yesterday we made her a calendar to cross off each day until February and her first day. I am about to hit the kitchen to bake her cake, when it struck me, I hadn’t yet shared the boy’s […]
