The very last post

The beginning of a new period, the end of another

Many new projects, plans and work are going to fill this new period and something has to go and I can't get around it, that something is blogging. I had a fantastic time and thank all my blogging friends I met over the last five years as they made it all worth while. I leave my blog here and say
And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've blogged for five years now
I learned a lot and had a  great play
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

 Arohanui and all the best, marja


  1. I will miss your blogs - been lovely to see your window to the world. All the best with the new ventures Marja :)

  2. Well, sometimes real life does get in the way of blogging, but I will certainly miss your posts. Maybe you can come back one day. Be well.

  3. I wish you the very best in your new endeavors, Marja. I’ve enjoyed visiting here over the past many months. You shed important light on NZ after the earthquake as well as provided a touch of inspiration along the way. The good thing about blogging is that you can pick it up at any time in the future. Perhaps you will start it up again one day when time permits. :) Arohanui!

  4. Good luck Marja! I won't say anything else as I'm hoping you'll change your mind and come back at some stage :)

  5. All the best Marja. Sometimes we have to move on, in order to do new things. It's been nice having you as a blog friend.

  6. Dat is jammer, ik heb je net ontdekt en ben je gaan volgen en nu moeten we alweer afscheid nemen. Ik wens je het allerbeste met nieuwe uitdagingen in je leven.
    Groeten, Marianne

  7. Fare thee well my own true love, until we meet again... May you find success and happines wherever you go.

  8. I'm going to miss you a lot, Marja. Hope you will drop in from time to time. Best wishes on your new adventures.

  9. Thanks and miss you all. Thanks dear Bob you and your work has been an inspiration for me.

    I'll hope to meet you all somewhere someday Arohanui

  10. I´m going to miss you,Marja!I am so glad to found you and your blog and I have always enjoyed to read here about you and your life so far away!But nevertheless I hope it isn´t the last and end to hear from you!!!
    Maybe I can write you via snail mail and hope your postal address is still the same I have?!
    All the best to you and your family !


  11. It is a very difficult decision to stop blogging Marja. As you know I stopped in May this year after 4 years blogging but even though I don't write anymore I still feel the urge to visit some of my blog friends from time to time.

    I am sooooo pleased we met in real life Marja and look forward to seeing you again next time I visit Christchurch or whenever you want to come over to Sydney.

    Take care my very special friend.
    As always big heart hugs.
