Long time no see! Time to wish Diary of New Freedom a Happy Birthday! This week is the blogs third Birthday! Going by my reader statistics you’re not sick of me yet! (Even when I disappear for weeks at a time!)
I took a self imposed break. I don’t think I had realised how much the last year had taken out of me, what with the dreaded Troll, pain medication causing a psychotic break, amongst family stresses and pain I needed to cut off, back away from the computer and do... well nothing.
The letter I wrote to my 19 year old self, became my most popular post to date and it made me realise that to continue on into a coloured future to match my rainbow past I needed to look after myself. Although since my “looking after” myself started, I have less energy, more ulcers, spots and have seemed to have got fatter – attractive.... oh well!
Anyway, I’ve had a bloody great few weeks; I read at my best friend’s wedding, ate three afternoon tea’s with the accompanying cakes/sandwiches/cream/jams, I had such a blinding night out that cannot remember anything between 10pm and 8am, visited friends in Richmond where they held their beautiful wedding, went to see my “in law” family for a long weekend of BBQ’s and one of our nieces had her third Birthday!

Now I’ve gotten off my lazy ass I’m getting started on the fundraising I started for Motivation earlier this year... I will be asking for lots of help, you don’t get away that easily people!
Plus I need to get back to writing for my local paper again! If case you missed my last three articles here are the links to the PDF download pages!
