Au revoir

… for a while.

I need to take a break from the blog, discipline myself and knuckle down to some things. I have two essays coming up for uni, another craft stall to sew and knit for, and an order for a cloak (in blue!), not to mention four knitting projects on the needles. It’s out of control round here and that depresses me.

More frighteningly, I must spiff up my curriculum vitae and go sell myself in a vain attempt to bring some money into this family. My usual source of work has dried up, and Mr Soup is starting to jiggle fretfully. (If anyone wants anything written, edited, proofed or otherwise manhandled into some semblance of eloquence, let me know. My rates are reasonable. Particularly when I’m desperate.)

I just ate thee Tim Tams in a row. Literally, without stopping. It’s a sign I’m in a funk and need to take stock. I’m kind of frozen at the moment and using the blog as a distraction.


I shall return anon.

you'll be missed! but go, get it all done so you can come back!!

Jane said...

It has to be the right decision. A blog can be a terrible excuse for time-wasting (but fun, nevertheless, if you are feeling on top of it). I hope you have a good break & can focus on what's really important. And I wish I could offer you work, I really do.

Go sort out your life... I find that time on the comp blogging takes me to another reality where I become most distracted... Take care and I shall look forward to your return...

Best of luck with everything. I'll miss you, as you always cheer up my day.

Kim said...

Thinking of you loads, and know exactly what you mean. You have been in my thoughts fairly constantly these last few days.

And what Blackbird said.

Enjoy the cleared headspace on your break. I only needed a couple of days, but it's nice not to feel the pressure!
If you're comfortable with this, let me know where and when the craft stall will be...

Good luck!

Wish my company would hire you, but they're not much into eloquence. It's time for your best-selling novel!

Will be thinking of you...

Happy trails to you, until we meet again...

(and the other song in my mind is the one they used for the Enjoli perfume back in the 80s)

I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget you're a man, cause I'm a woman, Enjoli.

Ann said...

I know what you mean. I've been on a break from my blog since just after Easter. It's surprising how much time I have. I've also drastically cut back my blog cruising time to only about once a week.
Good luck with your sorting out. I'm sure you'll get a lot of good family and personal time, as well as being refreshed when you return.
I always enjoy your posts.
