14 October 2009


the truth of the matter is that i just can't seem to blog lately. pretty obvious if you stop by here with any frequency. so this is hardly a comeback post...more of an i'm not sure why i can't post kind of post.

and as much as i delighted in the arrival of october and all things autumnal i'm not embracing it in quite the way i'd hoped. inspiration seems to be all around me...tapping me on the shoulder...but i just can't grab a hold and go with it. and sometimes it worries me...i could do with getting into first gear folks!

i have been reading blogs and books and magazines and almost feeling overwhelmed with all the good things out there. then i start to write up a post and i feel weirdly self-conscious...what's that all about? see...i'm on the verge of deleting this one because who wants to read about my doubts? but i suppose the reason i'm going with this one is it's really for me to be able to draw a kind of virtual line under them.

and more important than any niggles tonight is that i am managing to grow our little baby with success...and that keeps me more than very happy. especially as i can play the kick me over here now game! just one week left in my job at the post office and then i'll be home full time...and that may just be the green light i'm waiting on to move forward.


  1. A really thoughtful and lovely post to read. Glad you stuck with it and wrote how you feel.
