Five in Five

For more years than I care to work our right now blogging has been a rather biggish part of my life. When we embarked on #ouradventureofalifetime blogging was forced to take a back seat. The lack of internet connection in the first few weeks made it impossible.


This was both a good and bad thing.

Good because I suddenly had so much more time on my hands and bad because without regular posts my readership started to die down. Until it happened I didn't realise just how much of an ego boost seeing people stop by to read my words gave me.

While on the one hand I was happy to be blogging for me and creating a schedule that wasn't run around whatever blog linky was on that day I was also desperately missing all the comments and views from being a part of such communities.

Amidst my woes and poor bugger me thoughts I discovered that all was not as I thought it seemed.

Mystery Case


Right when I needed it most I discovered that I had been nominated for this rather cool little award.

So without further ado here are my five in five.

1. How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
My first posts here are date all the way back to January 2008 Essentially I started this blogging capper so I could feel more like a real writer. I had hoped that from blogging I would be discovered as a wonderful writer. That's how it works isn't it?

2. If your wardrobe could talk what would it say about you and tell us about your favourite or most worn item?
At the moment I don't actually have a wardrobe. As wonderful as Edna may be she doesn't exactly extend to closet space so we are all currently living out of suitcases. It is strange feeling not having to worry about what you wear. Given that I am pretty much out in the wilderness all the time at the moment the most important aspects of my clothes are functionality. And by that I mean a collar and sleeves to protect me from the sun.

3. What's your idea of the perfect date night?
Any time alone with Mr Awesome counts as a perfect date night. Most nights of late are spent reclining back in our chairs sipping away at a glass of red, staring at stars. The last full moon may have seen a special little adult rendezvous on the sand as the waves crashed nearby which was all kinds of magical...

4. What's on your Worth Casing list?
Top of my Worth Casing list at the moment is this great land I live in. Hence the whole #ouradventureofalifetime thing.

In terms of bloggers I like to case most it is a bit tricky, I feel quite disconnected from blogging of late on account of just not being in a position to read much online these days. If I do get a chance though this is where I like to head

Snippets and Spirits, an open and honest look at life and motherhood and all that it entails. Written with words so beautiful that even the pains are a pleasure to read.
Essentially Jess, an all round beyond awesome chick who makes me want to be a better person and inspires me to try. She also hosts my most favourite linky ever IBOT (to which this post is linking to because it is Tuesday and I have blogged).
Colours of Sunset, one of my IBOT buddies when I was a member of #teamIBOT before I began galavanting around the countryside. Aside from having an incredibly cool name Aroha also has an interesting take on life that leaves me thinking.
You learn something new everyday. Talented and down to earth this blog is all kinds of awesome including some of the best song rewrites you will ever come across.
The Miss Cinders. A woman full of awesome that would rather you didn't tell her so. Just quietly awesome doesn't even begin to describe just how amazing she is. My heart skips a little at the thought of seeing her on #ouradventureofalifetime

5. If you had a theme song what would it be and why?
Right now I think we're all going on a summer holiday  sums me up best. Only it is much longer than a week or two.
