Going private

I’m going private. Not sure for how long or if I will go public again in the future. For now though my blog will be private. If you want to read me, go in to request access. I do still want to have people read, but I want to know whose reading, it feels safer that way for now.
I hope some of you will continue to read me. I think a few of you will have access since the last time, but if you need it just go in and request it.
If you can see my blog then you already are able to access it, if not you’ll get a request access notification when you click on my blog.
I hope that makes sense. As soon as I hit publish on this I will be privatising it.
If you want to email me about it my email addy is

Milestone. 3000 followers!

So I did it! I reached 3000 followers on this blog! I am beyond thrilled! 😀 this is great news!

This blog means so much to me. You all mean the world to me. I am so so proud to know each and every one of you. You are all so loyal, and you give me such incredible support.

Thank you guys! You have been amazing!

This community is so amazing. My blog has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. I only have all of you to thank for this. I am in awe of how far I’ve come.

Thank you all for sticking with me. I hope my posts inspire you or make you think. I hope my journey isn’t in vein. I don’t think it is though. So many of you have either written me privately, commented on here, liked my posts, etc. I am so grateful for that.

I hope this blog continues to grow over the next 12 months. I will do all I can to grow it, and make it a success. I hope you’ll all come along for the ride.

Thanks again,

Carol anne

Love myself, day 8

I took a little break from this challenge over the last day or so. But I’m back to it today.

Today, I’m happy to say I’ve been able once again to come up with something good that I love about myself without too much trouble.

What I love about myself today is, my willingness to help others. I always try to help others where possible. I enjoy it. I enjoy the feelings it brings up in me.

Its a really good feeling to know you’ve made a difference in someone else’s day. Or life.

I’m really glad I am able to do that for others.

Privatising my blog

hi guys
i will be setting my blog to private for a while possibly for good.
if you’d like to keep following along with me, please leave me a comment here.
And I will send you an invitation to follow along.
Leave your email address where I can reach you too ok?
Make sure it is one where you can be reached, and where I can send an invitation so you can follow me
You’ll have to accept the invite, to be approved.
I feel if I go private and only allow certain people to follow I can be more open, more free, free to discuss things that I cant discuss while the blog is public.
Im happy for anyone to request to follow me.
I hope some of my long time readers friends will follow, and if you havent ever commented but would still like to follow me then please let me know below or else if you dont feel comfy giving out your email address please email me at
and let me know you’d like to keep following me.
put private blog in the subject line of the email.

eurovision song contest

spent th e last hour watching a show on tv about the Eurovision
they showed a lot of comical moments
it seems nowadays the Eurovision is not what it used to me

it used to be that the songs were great
however nowadays its all about block voting and gimics

Ireland had won the Eurovision 7 times

actually I think we’ve won the most times out of all the countries that have entered

here is one of our winning entries, 1992’s entry

I really like that song a log

its really good. they certainly don’t make them like this nowadays.

do you watch the Eurovision? its on next week. semi finals are this week and the competition is on Saturday.

for those who don’t know Eurovision is a European song contest where countries enter a song and try to win and then whoever wins hosts the competition the next year

Walking wishes: whatif prompt for april 28th

walking in nature
always brings calm
its where
all my hopes, and wishes come true
where i can be
simply be
breathe in the fresh air
fresh spring air
where i can sit for a while
listen to the sounds
of bird song
the sounds of nature
as i ponder
wish and dream
and hope
that all of my
wishes will come true
some day soon.
