I’m not sure I know where to start: it has been a while. I think I have forgotten how to think, type and construct sentences so bear with me reader: if I still have any…
Ramblings, Spoken, Rara and Panda, to name but a few, I have missed sharing your ramblings (Rambly’s ramblings- nice!) and posting my own. I have forgotten how to write, but I remember that there is a lovely community on here: if it was a thing in the real world, this blogosphere, I imagine it would be a rather bohemian cafe, lined with books of every kind. Oooo, can I have waiters on skates delivering delicious cakes and cups of tea? I’d like a comfy seat in the corner please, where I can watch all the comings and goings of you beautiful people unobtrusively. It really has been 6 months or more since I posted: a really stressful time in which work took over my life and my health started to deteriorate. During this time, I let go, one by one, of all the things which made me, me, including writing, and become a sort of robot, shuffling through the days fizzing with stress, holding on to just enough energy to come home and be a mum. It doesn’t help that I am an all or nothing sort of person: if I can’t blog daily, I lose impetus; if I get a job which is overwhelmingly difficult, I throw myself into it determined to conquer until I fall flat on my back.
However, all that is about to change- fingers crossed- I found a new job, which I start in Jan of 2014. It promises to be much less stressful and I am determined to start as I mean to go on, by being good enough at it, and letting myself grow into the role slowly, instead of throwing myself into it with an unsustainable gusto. I am also going to start blogging again and accepting that I won’t be able to do it every day, so once a week or fortnight is enough! I’m learning you see….
So, Happy Christmas to all: I look forward to catching up with your year and sharing some of the year to come albeit in bite sized chunks. It’s good to be back.
