I know that Christmas Eve is a little early for the whole ‘best of’ shenanigans, but I’m taking some time off the blog over the next few weeks so that I can have a short break, and then finalise the manuscript for book three in The Mapmaker Chronicles series. (The January 15 deadline for the edits seemed like a good idea at the time…)
I’m also looking forward to a few minutes to think about what I’m going to do next year. I might try the whole mindmap thing again – it worked pretty well for me last year!
In the meantime, I’m madly wrapping the last few Christmas presents, soaking the fruit for my world-famous* mini Christmas puds, and realising that in my zealous pursuit of the best-ever Christmas lunch, I may have forgotten some essential items. Like milk. And bread. And toothpaste. (Do you do this? Tell me that you do.)
But I will have roses for my Christmas table, as the garden is delivering some absolute beauties, right on cue.
To finish up for 2014, I’ve put together a few lists. You know how I love a good list. I hope you enjoy!
10 most popular blog posts for 2014
When book one of The Mapmaker Chronicles came out in October, the blogging community responded with enthusiasm, and my sister Maxabella put together one of the best blogging book tours I have ever seen. Every single one of those posts is a winner (and heartfelt thanks to all my blogging friends for all their support).
Finally, the fifth anniversary of this blog is looming. That’s right. In January, I will have been blogging for five years, first at Life In A Pink Fibro (yes, I still miss the Fibro) and now here. So I thought I would share my five favourite blog posts of all time.
And that’s probably enough lists for today. No wonder my To Do list has turned into my life’s work.
I hope you have a lovely, restful festive break – see you in the New Year!
