The Month That Was

The month that was October 2016

October for me, was a bit of a blur. It was also a time for change. Lots and lots of change. Early October, I commenced my new job up in the Central Coast. For two of those weeks, I lived out of a suitcase at a friend’s place. Mid-October, I made the big move from the Shire to the Central Coast. While it was traumatic for the cats, and consequently for me, they have settled and so have I.

Almost a month into my new job, I’m loving it. Two weeks after having moved here, I’m liking it except for my crappy internet. I was forced to sign up with NBN as there was no ADSL 2+ available and guess what? It’s been shit. I’ve called tech support more in this past week than I ever did in seven years with ADSL 2+. So yeah, I’m not a happy chappy about that! Having said that, I also found out it could be a modem/router issue which was supplied by my provider. Sigh.

In October, blogging was sporadic. Ideas were several but time was poor and so I mainly committed to writing my Friday Reflections posts which I co-host. I only wrote nine posts in total and practically nothing on my other blog. It’s hard to get creative juices flowing when you are constantly rushing.

Last month, I mused about how it’s good to have dreams but you really need to live it too. I reflected on what I’d wanted to be as a kid and shared a Halloween story from days gone by. After nine years of blogging, I also thought about lessons I’d learnt from blogging.

I’m hoping November can be better for blogging. I’d signed up for NaNoWriMo but I’m scared I’m going to fail. I guess I can just do my very best and see what happens. I’m hoping internet issues get sorted. November is going to be a busy month with a wedding, a hen’s night and a 35 kilometre walk in store for me. This is of course, in addition to all my other day-to-day stuff. I can’t wait for Christmas when I can finally have a break!

How was October for you?

Do share!

And if you have a post reflecting on the month gone by, why not link up with me for ‘The Month that was’?

***Linking up late thanks to internet issues with Kylie for IBOT this week***

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    Some months just seem to have more life thrown at them in four short weeks then we think was ever possible. Somehow we get through and keep going. I am glad the new job seems to be working for you, and remember Christmas and the break is really not that far away 🙂 Annette for #IBOT
