Ok, I admit I've been milking the 'time off' vibe !
There's been a lot of little jobs to catch up with over the last couple of days but I'm feeling a little more sorted out now with 20 loads of washing and a cupboard clearout under my belt.
We had a superb break. The children enjoyed it so much. Little Maddie was very good and was happy to be pushed around in the buggy for the most part. On day two she just crashed for a 2 hr nap in said buggy, something she never does............it was a case of complete sensory overload poor thing.
Its easier to show you our trip in pictures I think......so here goes..
I couldn't get any wireless signal in the flat and we had no TV. Really a blessing , we just read and fell asleep on the sofa in the evenings...bliss.
It's lovely to be back to this little blog, I missed it but was nervous about returning, heaven knows why. I feel a little out of the groove. I had a think about my blogging habits whilst away....I love, really love, the routine of a daily post. I truly feel that doing this has made me more aware of the sweet moments that happen everyday and to be grateful for them. I get such joy from all the lovely comments and am flattered that anybody reads my meanderings !
But some days it's genuinely hard to find more than scattered 10 minute chunks of time to sit and write, especially now that nap times are few and far between. The process can be quite time consuming as I'm sure you fellow bloggers are aware and I just don't want to be seen as 'on the computer again' by my family, which is a little how it was getting before we went away (sometimes justified, sometimes not !). Maybe I'll slow down a bit.
I suppose any activity that is essentially solitary is going to be seen as, dare I say it, a bit selfish ?
I guess it's like anything else - BALANCE.
I'd be interested to hear if any of you out there have the same feelings, do you experience any rightly or wrongly felt guilt regarding your blogging or blog reading ? How do you fit in posting and keeping up with and commenting on other wonderful blogs ? Lets all spill the beans.....we may pick up some tips....how, when, where and maybe most importanly why !
