Its been a long time since I last posted. There are many reasons for this absence, but the main cause was work. I ended up working seven days a week to make ends meet for a while. On top of this I was studying and planning my wedding. Time for writing just disappeared, as did time for going out and experiencing new products and places to eat. Even my home cooking suffered as I could not think of new recipes to make or have the time and inclination to go shopping at the larger out of town supermarket to buy the ingredients.
We will all, at some point in our lives, have a time in life where everyday life becomes all consuming. I have seen friends and family go through this. It doesn’t mean it is a bad time, but your focus will get reduced to the things you need to do.
Part of me is disappointed that I was unable to write much during this time. I didn’t even complete my daily journal for four months. The other part of me is at peace and has oven myself permission to do this. There are only so many hours in the day, and me no blogging regularly hasn’t affected the world.
Also during this time there was a lot going on in my head but I wasn’t sure how to get it out. To an extent I was afraid to put pen to paper/fingers to keyboard. I had a combination of fear and a massive writing block. It was almost as though I didn’t know where to start.
I think I am over that now. I have compiled a list of ideas to write about. Daily life has changed on so many levels (not just because of coronavirus), and I now have time to regularly write.
So watch this space and hopefully there will be some posts to make you think/ smile / shake your head at in the near future.
