And So We Begin Again.....

I cannot believe how infrequently I have posted over the last year!

Well, it is a New Dawn, a New Day and a New Year.

I thought I might recap what has transpired over the past year (especially the last few months).

  • In September I left my awful restaurant management job and started working part time from home for Mr. Shabby's company. 
  • I purchased myself a tablet and cannot tell you how much I love it. I read books and browse the net in the most facile of ways.
  • I gained weight now that I am more sedentary.
  • I got a smart phone  and don't know how I did without one before.
  • We went to Los Angeles (my old home) for Christmas for the first time in nearly ten years. 
  • My son got married (at my old house) on Christmas eve!
  • I gained a new daughter-in-law who is a total joy.
  • My Army son was also with us in LA.
  • I started yoga (albeit very gently as I have back problems).
I am much more content with life!

So there you have it, my synopsis of the last year.

I would love to hear what you have been up to, if anyone still reads this, lol. 

I am so excited to see what 2012 brings since 2011 went out on such a high note.

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year and looking forward to many more posts on my almost defunct blog....

I have a confession to make.........

Hello, yes it's me. You all thought I had disappeared for good, but no, I am still lurking in the shadows. 
Since I have very little time to create anything, or do anything of much interest to you, my dear followers, I have taken to 'pinning' on pinterest. 

Ok,ok, I confess, I am totally addicted. Eye candy galore and a gazillion ideas. 

So my plan all my ideas in one place and when I retire, I will be able to utilize them!

Do try and follow me there so you can see where my latest ideas are taking me. You too may become addicted!

Love and Peace,

Anne "The Shabby One"

Still Alive and Kicking, just......


I am putting in over 50 hours a week at work and craving some time off to create. I feel the artistic urge often but just have to stuff it back in the drawer.
