Copenhagen Calling...Open for business!

Here we are again. After a six week absence, I'm back. And ready to rock n' write! :D

The last six weeks have been fun and eventful. Kids out of school for six weeks, our two-week family holiday to France, Scottish family visiting for three weeks, our six week bathroom remodel now well underway (complete with the discovery of asbestos and the need to demolish an extra wall). And, as usual, I've been hanging on to the merry-go-round with the help of the Flylady :)

But I've also had time to think about what I want to do with the blog 'this time round'. I started it on 1 August 2009 because I wanted to get some things down on paper, have a safe place for all my best ideas and recipes - and all the other random thoughts that pop into my head. My own little world. I managed 333 posts in a row, had a whale of a time and suddenly found myself with some (faithful) followers!

I had an interesting chat recently on twitter with my lovely 'twister' Krista. (She has a great blog, I link to her often, go look!) It was about where and who we wanted to be next month, next year etc. I told her that I was constantly striving to be - just like the adverts claim - the "New, improved Diane. Concentrated." As in 'not diluted'! ;D

So that's exactly what I'm aiming to do with the blog this year. Fewer posts. More content. More Me.

And to put my money where my mouth is, let's start with the name of the blog, shall we? In Flylady fashion, let's get rid of the clutter! From now on you can call me...  www.DianeDenmark.com  :)

I've missed writing the blog and humbled that you seem to have missed me too. Thank you all for your lovely blog/facebook comments and tweets... You've made me shed a Mum tear or two!


Hope you have a marvelous Monday!
xoxo

YAY! You're back! I can't wait to read more, although I'm not sure I'm ready for an undiluted concentrated "ultra" you. I may get a rash.

I'm happy you're back, Diane! I certainly missed your blogs and am looking forward to seeing what you have in store for your faithful readers!

Glad your back though I have to be honest I have been very scarce for the last 3 months or so myself.

I enjoy twitting with you and look forward to following your blog more consistently this next year to see what you are up too.

Have a great day.

A BIG WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!!
Yay! Missed you so much! Congrats on the new domain name - the clutter free url suits you! Go you on the new boots - I got some too, you and I lead parallel lives!! Mine are Cowgirl style, Yee Ha! I wore them so much in the first 2 weeks that I just had to get them re-soled! So now they are slip-resistant too in preparation for the winter. Now how's that for planning ahead Hee hee :o) Wishing you all the best for the new concentrated new "you" on your blog :o) Have you thought about having your own YouTube channel? You could have a "dear Diane" day where we write in (on a postcard or email hehe) with our dilemmas and you give us your tips and advice! :o) I am thinking about doing a YouTube channel too for something or other, but it might have to go on the scaredy-cat challenge list cos I'm a bit shy. Let's see how it goes! :o)
