  1. Woah, I just followed your link on Chip-Chan. How Bizarre. Like an internet based urban myth! I too am feeling ‘hopeful’ these days. and i don’t even know hopeful of what, just generally optimistic. You’ve inspired me to do another one of these ‘Taking Stock’ posts, seems to make sense after the operation.

    • Having read quite a lot about her and watching her live stream, I believe that she’s really mentally unwell so it’s sad really. Still, it’s compellingly fascinating. I’m so glad to hear it! :) I have this general feeling of hopefulness but not for anything specific either. Maybe we can sense that spring is on its way? Although, now I’m terribly excited about visiting you. Yay, I can’t wait to read it! I love writing these posts. It’s such a lovely way to check in with yourself. X

      • Yes, It is sad ;-( And i’m sure its about Spring coming, the weather here has been lovely the last couple of days and it really does lift one’s mood! I’m excited to see you too. Looking forwards to getting that sorted! And I agree, it’s a nice way to check in with yourself, definitely. I like to do them just whenever it feels right ;-)

        • It does lift one’s mood. Despite the fact that I can’t deal with direct sunlight. I will look at flights tonight to see when it’s cheaper and I’ll run the dates past you before I book tickets. Me too. :)
