Ten Years of Blogging and the Dawn of a New Era

Today my blog is ten years old.

It is, frankly, a miracle I have kept this blog up for so long. Who would have guessed that this blog which was started on a whim with a glass of wine in my hand would last so long! However, this last year has been my least productive in terms of writing with only 33 blogs posted and no new novels. This is due to a dramatic change in my personal circumstances which is reflected in the subtle change in my blog title. I intend to keep on blogging but it will be a while before I am organised enough to find time to blog frequently or to continue with the novels that lie dormant in my files as I am back working full-time and looking after my boys' welfare in my spare hours takes priority over my creative endeavours.

The last year has been a particularly sad time for me. I am in now in my own changing room. It is one I had not anticipated at my age but there are times in life when you have to make dramatic decisions and when faced with the choice of sinking or swimming, I chose to swim. The door to my past life is closing and the one to my future is opening. I hope happier times lie ahead.

A big thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have supported my creative endeavours over the years. Normal service on this blog will resume when the legal papers have been signed. In the meantime, expect random caustic posts from the newly created The Witty Ways of a Wayward Woman. Hopefully, there will be ten more years of musings and several more novels in me yet.
