Wow! I really didn’t realise how long it had been since I last looked at or posted on “Hayleyslilworld”, for those of you who used to regularly visit my little place on the internet I guess you know why it all fizzled out. Yesterday I posted a comment on a very good friends heartfelt blog post and up came “Hayleyslilworld”. Sandra’s post can be found here!
So in being supportive for a friend I then started re-reading a number of my posts. Some of which gave me great pleasure some were a little random or not what I would have posted these days. But we live and learn and this little place is a part of my progression so I won’t be deleting or changing too much at least. In looking through all the stuff that has been sat here I found the quote below, which I personally think was very apt.
So I won’t be making any promises on what I will post and how often but it is nice to have this back. I am still on/off writing book reviews and also started a blog that was originally aimed at volunteering before I changed jobs to work for Cancer Research if you are interested in that it can be found here!
Until next time… 🙂
By leaving behind your old self & taking a leap of faith into the unknown, you find out what you are truly capable of becoming.
Many thanks to all the wonderful people who told me to carry on. Blogging can be awesome but sometimes as Michael Owen stated the Keyboard Warriors can make life difficult. Whatever you are doing to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another do it in style. I believe that 2014 can and will be the year of change. Have a good one and I shall hopefully see some of you lovely lot next year. Thanks for spurring me on to continue you know who you are.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.

I just adore all of acuriousgal’s piccies and I thought I would share this gem with my faithful followers. Make A Wish now!!!!
So on Saturday 14th December 2014 I shall be giving up some of my time to wrap presents in a local shopping centre for Make A Wish Foundation. I decided that I want to raise some extra money for this amazing charity. So I have set up a Just Giving page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1
so my friends, family, colleagues and followers can help me support the charity. I would love to wrap all of your presents for you but I just won’t see all of you, seeing as we all live in different places.
I am sorry for my silence again…I have been a busy bee but I hope to check in with you all whenever I can. Thanks again to all the wonderful and supportive friends I have made just on WordPress. It’s been a testing time but I won’t be beaten by negativity and pure cruelness. I really do appreciate whatever you can spare I have set myself a target of £100 without whatever I get on the day and I already have £15.00.
Anyway I shall love you and leave you with a quote that I believe we should all be saying to ourselves.
Start every day with a new hope, leave bad memories behind and have faith for a better tomorrow.
I have been wanting to post all day. But I did not know what to say. Today has been one of those days that just drags, I guess because I’m off to the Emerald Isle tomorrow. Although London Transport sure did ruin my evening tonight, what a nightmare. Trains cancelled, buses packed and next to no info.
Anyway, I didn’t know what to say and wanted to try and have some relevance and meaning to my blog entry and then I found this…..
Instead of putting people down all of your life, inspire someone, change someone’s life for the better, make someone smile.
