Um....Hi there......

I've been putting it off, putting it off, putting it off (hey, that sounds like the beginnings of a kick arse dance track, don't you think ?), but I can't really explain why or how I sort of fell in to a blogging void. Things have been a changing around Casa Del Waffler and my little routine was thrown on its head. I've been busy re-adjusting and finding my new groove...slowly I'm getting there. Thank goodness for that.

And how apt, I have made my return on Anzac Day, a day that resonates quite strongly with me. It's a day when we remember those who have fallen and those who have left our shores to take up posts overseas. I get teary every. Single. Year. Just can't help myself. As I listen to the services my mind wonders off to battle fields long since overgrown. I try to imagine what the men and women of our armed services went through, and I feel overwhelmed with emotion.

Lest We Forget

I apologise for the incredibly dis-jointed nature of this post, guess it's not like riding a bike after all. Really I just wanted to swing by and say I'm still here and I will be back. And since you are here, I wanted to say thank-you for being so patient and waiting around for me to get my act together.

And in another completely unrelated matter, here is a collection of treasures that I stumbled upon at one of our small mountain book shops last weekend and was simply unable to resist. Made me think of a certain well known blogger who has had a soft spot for the Moomin Family for as long as I can remember. Horray for unexpected finds at little book shops I say.


  1. Good to know you're still around. Take care.

  2. Well, thank goodness you're back! Looking forward to more posts soon!


  3. Good to see you back. There, that wasn't as hard as you thought, was it.

  4. hello again. been wondering where the waffler was!

    I well up every year too. It is emotional and I think it is the reverence of it all that is so powerful.

    Have a happy rest of your day.
    xx Amy

  5. Hello again
