Scarf Number 14

Today I woke up feeling kind of blue, a somewhat empty sensation in my tummy (no, not hunger) and a sudden wave of sadness. I’ve said this many a time in various posts, but I will get to it; it’s a new, recent “it” though, so please, don’t rush me.

Anyway, the reason I’m able to post and feel like writing today, is because I threw on a scarf today and suddenly smiled to myself when I remembered that I have a challenge to complete. I believe that this was scarf number 14 and not only did it bring a little something to an outfit of mainly black, but it made me happy knowing that the world of blogging could distract me for a short while; that a photo would be taken and that words were ready to come out. Sometimes it’s nice to just think about something totally different for a few moments, and although some of you may not think it too interesting, I think this small challenge that I’ve set myself could be the start of some more exciting events and moments.

Bla bla bla, I could ramble on forever! For now though, I’ll just show you what I found for today!

Look at that face!

Where Did That Week go?

This is evening my words will be brief                                                                         Not so easy to type as my heart’s filled with grief

The days have passed quickly, just ever so fast                                                          I had my trip to Spain, and although it won’t be my last

It was slightly tainted, when the news reached my ears                                        Something I heard that reduced me to tears…

Not wanting to share right now, but wishing to carry on                                       So many posts I’d like to share, lots, not just one

Please bare with me while I catch up over the next few days                               Just loads of emotions; thoughts going so many ways

I intend to end my challenge, that I will do                                                                Then continue my tales; stories for both me and you

For now I wish you a very goodnight                                                                            Say kind words, share amor and hold your loved ones tight.

Calling Pause!

Today I must let you know that I have to take a little break on the Scarf Challenge; with only three more to go, I need to wear just one and only one scarf for the next few days. The reason being, is that I am off to Spain! I’m only taking hand luggage with me and although scarves don’t take up much space, I just don’t have the room for 3 more going in there. Whenever I travel over to Murcia, I always take gifts with me because I go to visit friends and students whom I taught when I was living there. Therefore, I have to be strict with myself when it comes to shoes and clothes that go with me.

The other reason behind my pause on blogging is because I really just want to switch off and enjoy myself. However, I will be sure to get back to you and catch up on here as soon as I’m home; I’m sure I will have loads to write about. Actually, there are already so many stories I could tell you about my time in Spain…I must get going with those memories…

Still going…

On to day 17 now of my little challenge and these last two days have been taken up with work, jobs around the house and my third assignment (I’m doing a Teaching Assistant course). So apologies for no post yesterday!

Writing honestly, as much as fun as I’m having here in the blogging world, I am finding it hard to sit in front of the computer everyday and update my posts. Although I’m enjoying my current challenge, I must admit that the words aren’t always just rolling out on to the page; a bit worried I’m boring you all and that someone is going to stumble across “The Scarf Challenge” and the posts that follow, then tell me I’m ridiculous. Who writes about random scarves? Well, I promised myself I would get through them all, so that is what I shall do.
