Welcome to day one of my very first blog It’s All New to Me.com, where you will be able to join me on a year of firsts. Each day, I will attempt to do something new for an entire year. Some things will require quite a bit of preparation and forethought; others will be downright crazy! Every now and then, I may even let my readers vote on the following day’s big adventure. Today, I’ve already managed to create this blog. For someone who has spent most of her career on the other side of IT, who knew it could be this easy? Three cheers for LaLa (that’s me), who is now feeling much more exhilarated than overwhelmed! Oh, and kudos to WordPress. Freaking fabulous!
This blog also marks the end of a two-year sojourn in Cork, Ireland, where I am now on day one of a 6 month employment-free plan. I will be making my way home to Canukistan (term coined by a fellow ex-pat) over the next week or so.
Here’s a sneak preview of tomorrow’s exploits: they involve getting my deposit back from my Irish landlord, and a potential day trip to the Gap of Dunloe, which may involve a horse, of course… But more on that later. It’s all good!
