Get ready 2017 I’m coming to get you 🤗



My psychic side tells me that 2017 is going to be an important year for me. I have pushed back the cobwebs, brushed myself down and I am now spiritually healed enough to move forward in to the next chapter of my life. This is the chapter where I cannot afford to procrastinate. 2016 taught me a lot of lessons including a shake up of that life is precious especially when I had the scares that my life was going to end prematurely. Which actually did me a huge favour! Every cloud and all that 🌦

Although I have found my direction with my lovely husband John my personal direction was unclear. I was playing at writing . When we got married two years ago in February I was not working, I was however getting paid for writing articles/ blogs for the online dating site on which I actually met John. So when I was asked my profession for our marriage certificate John said say, writer !

Now don’t get me wrong, I am under no illusions that I am this big professional writer but surely if you have been paid for something you have written you would be allowed to say that one is a writer.

Anyway now I am a blogger/writer/comedian, whatever the mood takes me and I am going to make 2017 count. I feel such an excitement inside me that I have not felt for years. Can you remember as a small child waking up feeling excitement in your belly for the day ahead? well that’s how I feel now and it feels so refreshing. It has taken me a long time to settle down after lots of upheaval and even if I did not realise at the time I was unsettled.

Another milestone for me is that in January I will reach the grand age of 60 Eek, I remember being 20, 30, 40, 50 which hurt a bit but the thought of 60! well its strange I don’t feel older, so no doubt there will be a post about reaching 60 and how I feel on that particular day!

It is also important to me that I continue to read and comment on all the people that I follow otherwise what is the point of following someone. I will continue to keep adding others to my list. I have a following which balances with the posts, likes and the comments, to me blogging/writing is not just a number’s game I genuinely would like to gain more followers who enjoy reading what I write.

Having said that I would like to grow my blog not necessarily to gain money from it but perhaps to open other doors in which I can expand. I toy with the idea of writing a book but what about?  Spiritual prose comes the easiest, I enjoy writing comedy, or perhaps a book about  someone who has just begun online dating ? ? ?

Your thoughts would be most welcome and I am hopeful that someone will take the time to advise. 🤔

Here’s to a great 2017 and I hope that you all find what you desire. 😉

  1. A friend of many many years tried online dating. She had several dates with total geeks then found the love of her life. age 63! Go for that online dating book…it may not be great for kids (anyone under 40) but it sure does seem to work well for us codgers.

  4. Your spiritual side is very strong, if you wrote about a spiritual journey, and include comedy (whether from an amusing encounter say on a dating site) or an amusing moment with say (mom) or you’ve encountered along the way, I’m sure it would be a hit. Comedy sells more than anything else now as everyone requires humour. It lifts you up on darkest days, fills you up when happy to overflowing and is a positive when sick. The world’s your oyster my friend, go for it!
