So it’s been nearly two weeks since I’ve sat at the computer and written a post. Oh how I have missed it. This little blog that started as ‘oh I’ll give it a go and see what happens’ has opened up my mind – I want to write daily, I NEED to write daily now.
I have been away from internet access for the last week (gasp!) while on holiday at the boys’ grandparents’ farm. It was a great time away. I’m loving school holidays, more so now that I’m working – I only work school hours so holidays are a break for me from the work routines and time pressures, plus precious extra time with kids.
This holiday break brought a lot of time and visiting with different parts of our extended family, catch ups for our kids with friends and cousins, and while quite busy, a busy that was relaxing and recreational. Nobody was stressed about the return to Term Three today.
A milestone for me, I did schedule a post for while we were away which I also linked on my Facebook page. So now the people in my real world know about my blog. That was nerve-wracking but I’m glad I’ve done it. I don’t know if anyone is following now, it doesn’t matter, but I felt like this blog, which has so quickly become a part of me was something I couldn’t talk about in the real world. Now it’s all in the open. I shall continue as I have been, I am here to be me, I’m not asking anyone to read who doesn’t want to.
While away I had a lot of time to think and have a journal full of notes so for those of you who do have me popping up in your feed reader, there could be a couple a day over the next few weeks while I get it all out!
In the meantime, the attached image is straight from my journal (in the absence of a computer while away). I spent a lot of time pondering this and no doubt there will be more to follow. Count this is my Thankful Thursday for last week.
