Well given that 2014 started with a bang…especially in terms of this blog and has then had a few bumps and hiccups…both life and this blog it is time I think to get back into the swing of things.
So here’s what my crazy, somewhat hectic 2014 looked like.
In a nutshell I moved from Country Town at the end of 2013 and moved to Country Town 2.0 during January. Before that though I managed to meet my favourite footballer as well as a great chef or two and sweat at the Australian Open.
I learnt about the drought and what life is like for farmers and had the luck of getting bogged after not a huge amount of rain…it’s all the drought’s fault and I experienced all the animals that the bush provides, even when they’re inside your house or right outside your front door, and managed to only flatten a couple, including a massive lizard.
I travelled around Australia a bit, up and down the eastern states with the drive from Melbourne to Country Town 2.0 and then holidays in the Gold Coast for the AFL and then on to Cairns flying over a cyclone to get there…well that was a slightly bumpy ride, then the Gold Coast and Brisbane for the next one to catch up with friends and then to go to the rugby union and Sydney for the next one to see The King and I at the Sydney Opera House and see Strictly Ballroom as well as to go to the Robbie Williams concert as well as the Justin Timberlake concert before coming to Melbourne for Christmas, as well as a trip to Sydney for a night to go to the rugby union…as one does.
I went back into the classroom full-time with a class of my own and they taught me plenty. I learnt about pigging, I learnt about bulls and poddy calves and bull-riding and they gave me plenty of laughs as the year went on. I also learnt that when I’m told “Miss he said the K word” that they actually meant the C word…but hey, who am I to argue with that???
I worked, I studied, I watched a bit of tv…and blogged about it, who knew that me writing my views on reality tv would be so popular, but hey…people seem to like reading about Masterchef, MKR, When Love Comes to Town and all that sort of stuff…not that I’m complaining at all.
But now it is time to bring on 2015, thanks for the memories 2014.
