My faves of 2010

Being in holiday mode, I have decided to be like the telly in non-ratings period and give you a little re-hash of the past 12 months. It's kind of like those 'flashback' episodes of a sit-com where they sit around and remember when. A cheap filler really.

So here are my favourite, most commented on and controversial posts of 2010.

This month I was pondering what the hell I was going to do with my life. Trying to find a passion and a reason, aside from my family, to jump out of bed each morning. It seemed like I wasn't alone in this boat.
When I grow up I wanna be....

Tripping over toys in my small semi-detached house, I was looking at the good points of living under the flight path and not being able to swing a cat in my back garden.
City limits

As we headed into autumn, I was pondering how to be a good mother when you feel completely flawed.

April was a bit of a weird and freaky month for me. So it's seems appropriate that I won the Blog This challenge for my post on Weird & Freaky coincidences.
Weird and freaky coincidences 

I wrote a lot in May. Must have been feeling a bit reflective. So I have chosen two posts:
First was a popular post about looking for happiness in the here and now, instead of wishing away your life.
The Dangling Carrot

The second, is about being enslaved by technology. How technology has not made our work lives easier but in fact made has made us more enslaved to our employers.
Modern Slaves

I reflect on the close bond Lil-lil and Goosey share.
Sister Madly

This was the month of my birthday, going away with my brothers and their families and Goosey's birthday. It was also the month Lil-lil started ballet.

Lil-lil had her first haircut.
I go shopping for race frocks. Racing retro

This month I reflected on my weight battles in Slim Pickings.
I also talked about how shyness has affected my life. Shy low.

In October I wrote probably my most controversial post ever about urban versus suburban life. The Great Australia Dream

I contemplated about why I blog. Why Blog?

I found peace in a bookshop. Booked out
I finally saw U2 but it wasn't the day I had hoped for. It's a beautiful day... or is it?

So that was the year that was in The Daze of my Life. I wonder what 2011 has in store for this little soap opera....

Normal programming will resume shortly. x
