Bad blogging

I dropped into Lane's blog this morning and she is apologising for her absence recently. Everything that she says applies to me too...life has just got in the way. I'm sorry.

Please don't give up on me. I am still here, I will be back and posting more regularly as soon as I can. But I'm feeling a little burnt out. Not just from blogging but writing as a whole. I'm saturated in my current OU course which, though fascinating, is very challenging. I have work to do over the next couple of months, of the boring but paid accountancy variety. I have family challenges. The details of my life right now would not make exciting reading for anyone.

I need to take a little time and get my writing mojo back in time for the OU Advanced Creative Writing course starting in the autumn. I need to spend a little more time on bookersatz, so that it doesn't fade away from neglect. I need to concentrate on life at home. I have to be careful what I write in that respect but things are going very well, it is just that the path forward is not likely to be entirely smooth. I need to look after myself.

I will try to pop in and post here at least once a week if possible. I'm sorry that I am not commenting on other peoples blogs as much right now, but I do read as often as I can.

And I will definitely be back properly soon.

When my head clears.

Three notable things

1. Son 2 has taken to getting up between 5 and 5.30am. Even on the occasional day that he sleeps in to say 6.30, I wake up at 5.15. Urgh.

2. The grass in our garden is as high as my knees. We are trying to bribe son 1 to cut it for us...

3. The right person won The Apprentice, given that Raef had already gone.

You do have a lot on your plate! You could do with finding some quality time to put ya feet up and relax a bit.

Welcome back :)

I just got a box of 14 books from Bluechrome so i should be sending some reviews in soon.

Cathy please don't worry about the blogging thing. I think most of us have google reader or something similar which tells us when you have a new post up.

I got burnt out with it all and didn't blog or comment much. I'm only just coming back. Take care of yourself. x

Cathy, don't worry. Take care of yourself and your family, and come back when you're ready. We'll still be here when you do.

High grass is lovely - all that wildlife. And you take the time you need, babe - we'll all be here when you return!

We won't give up on you Cathy! Life takes precedence so give yourself some space.
My grass is knee high too. I won't even mention the hedges which are sure to bring some complaints soon:-(

I hope you can make the NR meet. I'm trying hard to make it happen. Here's hoping:-)

Good luck with all your projects.

I managed to keep blogging... but had to stop commenting for a while... but now I'm back. And so will you be, when the time is right for you. No rush.

Beth said...

Was fab to meet you yesterday. I had such a good time and came back feeling inspired. Look forward to reading you again when life gives you space to do so :)

You have plenty to contend with right now without putting more 'I should' demands on yourself. 'To everything there is a season...' There's a time for writing coming your way - take care of yourself - hugs
