At the start of this year, I wasn’t entirely sure if I’d get hooked on the whole blogging thing. But, 8 and a half months later, with 162 blog posts written, it would seem I have an answer to that question, as I have averaged 2 posts every 3 days, a figure which really astonishes me. I would never have done it without the wonderful support from all of you amazing people who take the time to read and comment on my posts, so thank you all so much.
But with a looming trip to England, I must announce a temporary hiatus for the next month, until about halfway through October when I return back to this silly hot country most people know as Australia. I don’t actually leave for my holiday for another week, but I have been flat out busy already this last week, and with the next week even busier, and having just been in a (relatively minor, though still painful) car crash yesterday, it’s just made me realise I need to start this break from my blog now.
I am incredibly excited about this trip, though, of course. For those of you who haven’t been following me long, or read my About page (and if you haven’t read that you really must, people keep telling me it’s rather excellent and/or entertaining), I was born in England, but have not visited it since I left as a four year old, back in 1990. I will be spending the first half of my trip running around seeing family, many of whom I haven’t seen in all this time, and then spending the second half of my trip in London with a special someone (and that is all the information I am going to divulge on this second half, for now). So it will be a busy three weeks, but I am looking forward to it immensely – this is a trip that has been decades in the making, in many ways. I think the enormity of this trip, and all that it means, has only really sunk in these last few days.
So I won’t be posting much now for about 4 or so weeks, though for the next week at least I will be checking and replying to any comments you leave, as I always love and appreciate your comments. Also, I will attempt to stay active on my twitter account – @abritishperson – so you can always follow me on that if you don’t already, to hear about my latest shenanigans. And when I return, I shall have many stories to tell (and some book reviews to write, considering the length of those flights…)
Oh right, so I promised a bad joke didn’t I? Okay, here goes, a travel themed joke. “I’ll tell you what I love doing more than anything: trying to pack myself into a small suitcase. I can hardly contain myself.”
Happy reading and writing my awesome readers, I’ll be back soon!
