Travellin’ through the Year with Eden Rock today

screen-shot-2013-05-22-at-16-40-48 Eden Rock has posted up an interesting game. See it here.  You go back over 2016 and take the first sentence from the first blog you did each month. You should have 12 sentences that form a bit of an overview of your year if you did a post each month.I just went back and copied each of my first sentences and it has been quite fun. I did so many interesting things during the year that I had actually almost forgotten. All I can say is “Wow, what a year!”

See what I mean? Starting with January-

January:  This was the story I picked at random through the Deal Me In Short Story Card Challenge.
February:  This past week was busy but all I said would happen did, plus more. I did do the 900 km (540 mile) bike ride last weekend.
March:  Loss of my little dog really knocked us around. People who don’t love dogs won’t understand that, others will.
April:  I have done some interesting Penguin things over the past couple of weeks. Our book group is reading A Little Life.
May:  I have just returned from the Opening Address with Kate Tempest at the Sydney Writer’s Festival.

June:  Who would have thought I would find vintage Penguin books from Alice Springs?

July:  I am going to have a bit of a rant here.
August:  I am writing this to you from the local laundromat on my 45th wedding anniversay.
September:   Two days ago we finally got to Hay on Wye again. It has changed since I last saw it.
October:  Goodbye Blogspot- Hello WordPress
November:  This evening I was looking through the 1001 Children’s Books….and the first book recommended is The Little Engine Who Could.
December:  I can’t believe we are so close to Christmas. This year has passed incredibly quickly. However I am ready for 2017. I always enjoy a new year. It is like a clean slate.

I live in Tasmania, Australia. I ride a 350cc Piaggio scooter as I travel the state and sometimes the world searching for vintage Penguin books to add to my archive. My goal is to keep them out of landfill as they are wonderful old books. I travel, socialise, read a lot and have my friend the Travellin' Penguin who accompanies as I traverse through life and books.

  1. I love the virtual scrapbook these little snippets create. It’s so fun to review one’s year (most of the time)! Which brings me to your post above; I have been a terrible reader this year, and a worse blogger. It’s a wonder anyone comes round to comment at all. Talk about needing to breathe new life into a blog! But, I whole heartedly support your Tuesday Trivia idea and am interesting in reading those posts.

    Merry Christmas!

    1. Blogging is always a roller coaster to me. Many posts at once then a long break. It is kind of like a roller coaster during the summer season as compared to winter season. Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2017 and I look forward to more of your posts in the new year.
