There comes a time when even I must admit that I am not Super Woman, Super Mum or even Super. It has been a very long winter and with most of us, especially Elise, ill – I feel emotionally, mentally and phyically drained.
So after a lot of thought, discussion with Mum and Ashley and prayer I have decided to take a break from blogging for a while.
I started blogging with so much enthusiasm and joy and have of late found much of that lacking. Many of you may have seen that in my posts. While I know there is no pressure on me to blog each day or even each week, I have felt that there was a need to do so. I am not so egotistical to think that many of you suffer withdrawal symptons if I haven’t posted for a while – it was more my ego that said “Blog – dammit, Blog. There must be something of interest in your life you can write about”. Well I’m sorry to say – that there isn’t anything remotely interesting happening lately. Probably because I’m too tired to do anything and the creative drive is on extended holiday.
So for a while I will take a little holiday. I don’t want to delete my blog – there are too many happy memories and comments from friends that I cherish, but posting will be far and few between for a while. No doubt tomorrow I will find items of such interest that the world will have to be told about them but they will have to wait for a while. If they are still of interest in a few weeks time then you shall hear of them.
Don’t worry about me please. I haven’t had another meltdown and while at times I feel like sitting in the corner sucking my thumb, it hasn’t come to that – yet! I do feel the need to take a step back and discover myself again before I really do fall apart. My health at this time in my life, both mental and physical, has to be my priority.
I will still be emailling and rest assured I will be keeping up with your blogs (Big Calidore is watching you….hehehehe….good grief that sounds scary…lol) and on occassion I will be commenting.
As for what I will be doing while on this extended discovery of myself….well there are all those clothes to make for myself, plus Elise and Nicola have put in some orders. There is the little matter of 13 Get together crazy quilted blocks to be made and embellished. Having cleaned and resorted my fabric stash there are quite a number of quilts that are just begging to be made as well, not to mention all those that need quilting and binding. Some baking would be nice. Milly needs some serious training and we have started walking together. Now I just have to convince her that every car that drives past is not out to get her . The garden needs a a serious overhaul and redesigning in certain areas, not to mention weeds to be mulched, trees to be planted, watering systems to be laid and more cuttings taken. The family need me most of all – as I’m an sure that they have only received half of Mum for a while. Plus Ashley and I really want to take a weekend trip away together – just the two of us – for a break. We have been Mum and Dad for so long, that we have nearly forgotton how to be Catherine and Ashley.
Please take care of yourselves. I will be keeping up with all you are doing and as always I am only an email away. Just because I’m not blogging doesn’t mean I’m avoiding you all.
