As the week is rolling by I am starting to panic. I haven’t done my post because I wanted to thank all those people who commented on my blog, read all their blogs and get down their details to share with others. All the jobs I have put off for a month are crying out to be attended to and suddenly I have no time.
The original plan was to use the A to Z as a motivation to write. The purpose of the writing was to make a record for my family of my DNA discovery with as much detail as possible. I didn’t dream that so many people would follow my posts and comment on them. It encouraged me enormously so thank you one and all. I tried to comment in return and read all your blogs but ran out of time. My posts were semi prepared at the beginning of April but still required a lot of last minute changes and additions. In the middle of April we went on a road trip with our caravan for ten days which didn’t help.
My task now is to put the 26 posts into a book. I am using Photobookclub for this. I have had a number of photo albums made through them and thought that I could get five copies made for family and new relatives. All the names have to be changed back to the real ones and now I am putting in photos of the people who had to remain anonymous.
My biggest problem is my mind is continually planning A to Zs. One minute I am thinking “Travels in our Caravan” with A for Abrolhos Islands, B for Bourke, C for Carnarvon Gorge. Then, inspired by “Retirement Reflections” I am thinking A for Aqua Jogging, B for Book Club, C for Cycling.
I want to thank the organisers of the A to Z this year. I can’t imagine what it was like for them to manage this huge, ungainly beast. It was a lot of fun and next year I resolve as others have done to:
1) Have all posts written before April.
2) Reply to all comments on my blog.
3) Comment on as many other people’s blogs as possible.
4) Mention all the blogs I enjoyed in “Reflection 2019”.
