Note Three



 Bondi Beach, Sydney

Life has been really busy lately, and I have missed my blog so very very much. With 2011 drawing to a close, and growing yet another year older, I have had a lot on my mind. 

Work currently takes up a lot of energy, both physically and mentally, and I sometimes find myself struggling to smile. But once I drag my weary body home, and see Bunny and Lulu, I find some of the weight lift off, and the love and laughter I encounter at home recharges me for yet another day. 

Parties and events seem to accumulate in the last quarter of this year, and despite being rather socialable, the small talk seems to take so much from me. I guess I am really missing my quiet time. :|

Hehe, and I know I sound really gloomy, but I really am still the same Happy Addie, just a bit more bedragged and crumpled around the edges. I am looking forward to my silver lining - my company's upcoming Christmas shutdown. 10 days to do with as I'd like is a real luxury to me. :) 

Hope you are having a fantastic ending to the year, sweethearts. ♥ I can't wait to hear you tell me all about it.

xoxo

  1. I miss you too Addie!! =( Hardly see you posting anymore lately..In fact, I find that I'm secretly waiting and wondering whether you will be posting something like, everyday! LOL!! Ok..I don't want to sound like a crazy stalker but I just wanted to tell you I miss your blog and hoping all is good with you and be positive and staying around positive people helps too *smiles to you*

  8. The end of the year is always a whirlwind of activity! Gosh, Bondi sure looks inviting. I spent a Christmas there a long time ago and thought it was pretty cool to have a beach picnic for Christmas instead of snow. =0)

  9. I know whatcha mean - this time of year seems to pull so much energy out and I'm excited about being able to relax over Christmas. :)

  10. WOW!
    10 days, that is unheard of here.
    That is a luxury to cherish.
    I wish your work wasn't so draining for you.
    Especially with the holidays too, it is hard on the body.
    Glad to see you will get a break and I bet you and your bunny and kitty will have something amazing planned to recharge you.
    Take care Addie.
    and Merry Christmas

    My year ending always comes with a lot of birthdays. never thought I may say it, but too much of parties in just one month is rather stressing.

  30. Lucky you for getting a break! I wish I had the same time off but I'm always working. It's that time of the year where I wish I had a twin body so I can do everything I want.

    Have a good break and relax :)

  36. I know what you mean by getting dragged down with the small talk. sometimes I wish I can do away with all the social events but that would make me a party pooper... which I absolutely am NOT!!! (i swear... =P)

  38. i know what you mean, there are times when all I want to do is stay locked in my room, sleep, and not talk to anybody. Life takes a toll on us every now and then but just know thins funk goes away, eventually. Hope you start smiling soon!

  39. My darling friend. I was so excited to visit you today, and I want you to know that you make me smile! It's a pleasure to know you on blogland. I can completely understand why you are feeling down! I have been there many many times in my life and especially from work! It seems that work sometimes has a way of killing our inspiration and our joy. I often don't think it's fair how often we are a slave to it, but I suppose that is life. In the meantime, we can daydream...and oftentimes our daydreams can be turned into a reality! So keep your chin up gorgeous lady because you never know what might be around the corner. In answer to your question, the closing of 2011 is a closing to what has been an extremely challenging and somewhat rough year for me. Although there have been many adventures, there have been many challenges too. Let's toast together to the new year and for high hopes of a bright 2012. Oh and btw I just adore your outfit in the post below. That skirt is beautiful on you!

  59. I can totally understand about work being that tiresome both physically and mentally. I've been in a tough phase with it myself and only the thought of upcoming holidays kept me going, it seemed. We also get 10 days off here, so I can also understand your joy :) Hope you have a great time enjoying your time off and refill your energies, so to say.

  60. Hey Addie :)

    I hope you, your family and your friends have a wonderful, amazing Christmas and New Year!
