A Moment of Whatever You Call It

Full of cold, full of other stuff in my head, full of a desire to do something else means the blog is suffering in silence. I don’t think I’ll be away for long but I need to focus on me at the moment. Work on a plan of action to get going again. How, what, where, why I want to get going again.

I told someone I write a blog today, with a little pang of guilt in my head. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written. My head is not in the game, I can’t decide what to write next. It’s not that I don’t have ideas, I’ve just lost sight of the something I started with.

For 3 years now I’ve been writing this blog and I don’t think I’ve hit a wall of silence like this. Other times it’s been intended, I knew I needed the break. This time it’s just sort of happened. I’ve had a bout of guilty pleasure while I’ve deliberately missed writing my weekend round up post. I’ve made countless little things and thought I could blog this, but I haven’t.

My kids, my beautiful, time zapping life revolving kids who mean the world to me. Who I write about, tell stories of our adventures, suddenly I want to keep them to myself. It’s my time with them and the desire to blog it is low. I can’t help it.

Believe it or not I’m quite a private person and the fact I’ve chosen to share so much of myself online is something I’ve not really analysed before. I’m laying here now thinking I can’t quite believe it.

But I told someone I blog today. I knew that I had to write something, anything. Writing has been the creative outlet I needed to get me through the early years of being a Mum helping me find my feet. Become established as Mum of two. I never want to let my this go, even if I do feel a little lost for now.

When I write like this I always tentatively waver my thumb over the post blog button. Wondering do I, should I, is it enough, then I do and it a sense of relief washes over me. So of course I hit publish and put it, this, out there…


  1. Oh Karen – I have been very neglectful of my blog of late too… I think you were very wise just to get this down and ‘out there’ as you say. It looks like you’re busy with your quilting as another creative outlet (over on IG) anyway and you’re certainly busy with the kids too. I popped by to see if Family Fun was on. I was thinking of doing a couple of linkies this week to try and get back into the zone! XX

      Yes the sewing has taken over my world and hopefully I will start to bring it in to the blog too. We’re putting family Fun on ice for a bit to concentrate on things. Hope you’re ok x
