Yes, it's me. It really is. I'm back. I know it's been a while but I am truly back in Blogland once again so I hope you've got time for a sit down and a chat.......
This year has been manic so far. Both my boys have moved to schools 40km+ away from our home so between teaching at my preschool, travelling backwards and forwards to collect them and helping my husband with our bookshop there hasn't been much time for anything, least of all blogging. There have been MANY times over the past two months that I've thought 'I must blog about that....' but then it just hasn't happened.
I also got into a rut with my blog. All the articles I've read about blogging talk about a blog having a purpose and I guess I lost sight of what my purpose was. It started out as a record of our days as a family and of my gardening prowess (which sadly hasn't amounted to anything). I also wanted to record my knitting and crochet projects and any other creative moments that come my way. But then I got overwhelmed by other blogs, more beautiful blogs, blogs that seemed to run off posts like raindrops down a pane of glass. I just didn't seem to have that much to say or maybe I thought what I had to say just wasn't very interesting. I just knew I needed a break, so I took one.
I feel more inspired now. I've sat back and thought about what my blog means to me and I realise now that it's not about other people but about myself and my life. If other people find that interesting to read then GREAT but if not, so be it.
So I'm here and I'll be posting regularly - have designated Saturdays to be my blogging day - so please say you'll stay around and walk this funny old road with me.......
I haven't been idle during my break and my needles and hook have been busy as ever. I'll show you next time but for now I'll leave you with my latest 'look' which resulted from a local charity fundraiser for CANSA.....I shaved my hair off!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and it didn't even involve alcohol!)
