It would appear that some where along the line I have stopped blogging. I have always loved that if you look back at my blog you can see the ebb and fall of posting and being present. But recently it makes me sad that I don’t seem to write much or share much in this space. I think part of the problem is that I don’t know why I blog any more. I like to write about things I have made, but that in itself is something as I have a new creative outlet in sewing and so perhaps that takes away from having the time and inclination to blog. I do have free time though so that shouldn’t be an issue. Part of the problem I think is perfection. I don’t like sharing a post without a photograph in it, and then it needs to be the right photo and perhaps there is some editing to do and then that all seems like too much work and so I don’t do it.
The other contributing factor is perhaps that life is actually quite good. I used to pour my heart out on here about feeling so depressed and struggling so much. These days my day to day life is manageable. I am busy and happy that I am busy. There are things that I think about blogging about but sometimes just don’t know where to start and maybe part of me thinks that no one is interested in hearing me carry on about just stuff. Maybe I just don’t think that day to day life is bloggable.
That makes me sad though and so I have decided to set myself a challenge to sit and write for 15 minutes about nothing. And something. Whatever I have been doing, reading, thinking, talking about, watching. Just fifteen minutes of writing. If I have a photo that is relevant I will pop it in but only that, no fiddling, no editing. I will set my timer and off I will go. Really I just want to see some words on the page. (I also have a post from drafts and a review to do today so sorry if you are bombarded)
I cannot believe that it is the last week before school finishes. In fact today is Kate’s last day at nursery before Christmas. Thankfully I am properly prepared this year. Last year was a panicked disaster! Cards written, presents made or bought, wrapped and sent or squirreled away. I am excited because when Piran breaks up on Friday so does Mr C and he is off for the whole two weeks that the kids are. This makes me very happy. He has been away so much in this past year that I am really looking forward to having him home and all of us being together. We are having Christmas at home and will be visiting my family at some point too. I love Cornwall in the winter, I am hoping for some sunny days for beach walks. Fingers crossed. Mr C always seems so much happier and a lot less stressed when he is walking on a beach so I definitely prescribe some of that for him. He has worked so hard this year and is very tired and run down as a result. The fresh air will definitely do us all some good.
And that is my time for today. Happy Monday everyone.
