Welcome to 417 Days A Year

417 Days a Year


This weekend, in a moment when I should have been doing something far more important instead but didn’t really fancy it, I decided that it was time to write a blog. 
I have attempted to write a blog a couple of times before but like many things, it takes time.  Spare time, of course is something most of us don’t have much of.  While thinking about what to call the blog, it occurred to me, that if we just had more time in the day, or more days in the week, or even more weeks in the month, we could possibly accomplish so much more. From this idea, came the name for my new blog, 417 Days A Year.
In 417 Days A Year I would cook more, knit more, travel more, up-cycle more, do considerably more genealogical research, clean and tidy more (OK I probably wouldn’t) and generally take more time to enjoy doing those things that make life more enjoyable. We only get one life and it isn’t a rehearsal, so this blog will be about some of  the things that I manage to squeeze into my time, as well as the wonderful things that other people manage to squeeze into theirs. It is dedicated to those who never got the chance to make their own dreams come true.
I never knew what I wanted to do when I grew up and to be honest I still don’t. However, I am now in some people’s eyes grown up, that is; I have qualifications, full time employment (and a few sidelines), I have workplace experience, I am married and I am a mother I have left the country of my birth and started a life in a new country and therefore I suppose I must be grown up. I still have no idea what I want to do when I grow up though, so in the meantime I will be posting about things I enjoy and things that happen while I am living the life that I live, while waiting to decide what I will do when I grow up. I feel that I can’t be alone in thinking perhaps this wasn’t the life I ordered but as I am not sure what life I would have ordered instead, I plod on. After all, the life I have is pretty wonderful – its just not the life I thought I would have.
