We’ve Moved!

Sharon's New Home

After much planning and restructuring, the reservoir has now moved homes. We now have our own domain and we’ve moved to a self hosted site. Searching the web, I discovered that ‘reservoir’ was taken so I tried ‘the reservoir’ and guess what? Yep, you guessed right. Taken! What is even funny is that it was taken after I started this blog. Like I’ll pay more than what a domain name should cost for that. Ish. So anyway, I got my creative juices to work (not that it needed that much juice) and came up with a new name. Click the picture above to visit my new home.

Thank you for keeping up with me as I’ve blogged my way through life. I look forward to ‘seeing’ you all at the other end – that is, the other blog 😉

Moving Homes & Paid Blogging

I have been shamefully neglecting this blog. Coping with the demands of being a mom (and a work-at-home one at that) has been taking its toll on me. I intend to do better though.

First of all, my blog and I are moving homes 😦 Yeah, it’s both sad and exciting. Sad because we have been with for a little over 2 years now and it has been one awesome experience! really is the best free blogging platform on the internet.

But it is also exciting because we are getting our own domain name. By the way, do you have any idea how many reservoirs there are out there? I could barely find a domain name to register. But bloggie and I, we prevailed 🙂

Another reason I’m moving is that I intend to start paid blogging and does not tolerate that. It makes sense since they are giving us this platform for free. Still, it is time to move on. I felt it fair to warn you all in advance so that if you saw a post on, say… Botox for instance or hiring snowmobile drivers in Alaska, you’d know it was a paid post. I will try as much as possible to let you know when it is a paid one though.

So that’s it for now. I’ll start posting more regularly. I hope you all follow me to my new home (I’ll let you know when it’s ready). Thank you for being with me for so long.

My Book Reviews

I have been a busy little bee. I decided that my book reviews were cluttering up this blog, especially as I have so many reviews pending. So I figured the reasonable thing to do would be to open a dedicated blog for book reveiws, right? Anyway, that is what I did.

I have a really eclectic taste in books so if you are the kind that is easily offended, please don’t visit 🙂 Seriously.

I do not have too many books up as of yet, but if you would like to plan your holiday reading, feel free to check it here. Oh, and you could follow on Networked blogs too 😉

If you are an Author or a Publisher or Publicist and would like me to review your books, read this page.

Motherhood – So Ready (Not) (via the reservoir)

I was browsing through some old posts and came across this. Oh the things we wish we knew! Lol. But I was right in a way. Motherhood does take a LOT out of you.

Motherhood - So Ready (Not) My neighbours' 3 year old son is haunting me. For some reason, he decided to fall in love with me and has become my self-appointed shadow. This morning he was at my house as early as 6:30 am and clambered onto my bed with me. I had to listen to his constant chat with semi consciousness. He even followed me to my office! Oh, lest I forget, it's the start of the holiday season here. I had to think of a way to shake him off. Shaking him off does not … Read More

It’s all about HIM – Prov. 31:29 (via Being Mrs. V)

We are doing a study of Proverbs 31 over at and this devotion really spoke to my heart. Living a life of submission to God’s will is what sets one person apart from another.

I didn't intend to do this write-up today, but something happened to me earlier this evening, which I just knew was tied into the verse. Let's look at the verse before I tell the tale : Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all [KJV] My story goes like this –  I was strolling through the streets of the shopping centre at The Hague Centrum, actually I was leaving to go back to my host's as it was already dark. These two youn … Read More
