So I’m pretty excited to be attempting to participate in the Blogging 101 challenge.. I’ve written a few blog posts but these have been mainly about our move from the UK to Thailand.. Well, that’s why I decided to write a blog in the first place I suppose, to keep family and friends updated on our new adventure, progress, new life and what we have planned moving forward.. Now, I’d really like to find a subject for my blog that will be classed as useful, enjoyable and I’ll admit it, I’d love to get more followers, comments and interaction in the blog community – I’m aware it takes two to tango so will commit to making time to get to know my fellow bloggers too..

Well, I did it!  I made the Annual Bloggers Bash 2015 in London by the skin of my teeth.

Hubby and I caught the train to Waterloo Station on Saturday morning, then the Underground to Euston Station; a short walk and three hours later, there I was.

Not outside the British Library as planned (family commitments meant I missed that bit unfortunately), but outside the Pizza Express across the road.

I said goodbye to hubby as he left to spend the afternoon bimbling here and there around London as he likes to do, while I took a deep breath and entered the restaurant.

Busy and noisy, I scanned the room for my fellow bloggers.  I noticed a group seated at a long table hoping to recognise someone, not having met any of them in the flesh, so to speak.  Was I at the right place?  Were they still at the…

Hushed whispers of days gone by

Secrets held with  a sigh.

Hush don’t wake  the dead

Words left unsaid

The cat creeps

Her smell seeps

In to

Earth.
