Look I know we’ve been here before, I won’t deny it, we’ve all made mistakes, words were forgotten and promises broken. But I swear this time things will be different…I promise?!
So I know, I know, I know I said this time would be different, I’d keep on top of posting and for a little while there it really looked like I was going to. But who knew completing my MA, moving across the globe, and starting a new career would be so tiring! I started writing and editing for Life in the Bay a great expat blog which I am hugely enjoying, as well as starting a new job which actually involves writing and editorial work! It has been a good and busy few months.
But this has all meant of course, less reading, and less writing. I have a million and one half written posts, and even more ideas. So now that I am settling into more of a rhythm in my new life I am going to try to get back to it.
Currently reading: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
This has been an interesting experience. I read these first time round, and only time so far, as they came out. So there is a strange bittersweet nostalgia to re-reading them. It’s not that they have lost any of their magic, but I remember the total love and astonishment and amazement I felt first time around. And whilst I still love them, knowing what is coming, and all the hype which surrounds the now far too vast franchise does take something away from them. I remember enjoying the later entries in the series more anyway, so perhaps when I get there I will find some more of that magic and sparkle.
Don’t get me wrong, I am really enjoying finally giving it a second go, I just guess I wish it was all still new to me.
