After such a dramatic title, I feel I should write the rest of this in an epic narrative style. But I am somewhat jetlagged, and have gone from beautiful 10 degrees (celcius) England to 35 degrees Australia, so my body is a little befuddled to say the least.
But yes, I am back in Australia, home from home you could say, after what was quite an amazing and life changing trip overseas. I spent a week and a half travelling between the Midlands and Northern England visiting various relatives and several historic sites, before heading down to London for a week and a half to meet up with a very special person (who knows who she is, when she reads this (perhaps one day I shall tell the rest of you about that part of my life, as it is shaping up to be quite the story in itself…but for now it is a tale staying under wraps)).
I have never done so much in such a short space of time, so that it kind of felt like I had been over there for months, even though now I am shocked to suddenly be back in Australia. But it felt great to reconnect with my birth country, as well as many of the other things that happened on the trip. And some of those things (again, can’t really explain right now) have helped set some new directions in my life, including visiting that side of the world again early next year (you must all be thinking “stop all this secretive half-telling rubbish”).
But for now, I need to get my head down, work hard to save up lots of money, and also get through the remaining two and a bit months of the year, which are shaping up to be as hectic as always.
Also, I am officially returning to my blog. I don’t know how often I will post, as I will be busy, but I have a lot to write about – several books to review, quite a lot of music to discuss, I might do a few photo posts from my England trip, and of course in just over two weeks NaNoWriMo is starting, and I am bracing myself to attempt and win my fourth NaNoWriMo in a row.
I hope you have all kept well in my absence – I have genuinely missed the blogging community, and am looking forward to returning!
Happy reading and writing!
