How Are Things?

Hi everyone?¬† How are things?¬† It’s been¬†a quite¬†while since I posted here.¬† I originally planned to go away for a couple of weeks but I’ve been away now for well over¬†a month!¬† Things are a bit hectic in my life at the moment, not exactly what I expected, given the plans I had for this blog.¬† But unfortunately I’m going to have to take some more and¬†extended time away from blogging.¬† I’d like to keep up with¬†the blog but the truth is I’m¬†barely managing to deal with things that are happening in my offline life at the moment and blogging just takes too much time right now.¬† I haven’t had much time for reading and haven’t felt¬†like reading much either¬†due to some issues I have with my eyesight recently. ¬†I’ve not been very well which is a big part of why I’m taking a lot of time away ūüė¶

I’m not disappearing completely.¬† You can still stay in touch with me via email or social media if you want to, and while I said I’m not reading much I have been keeping up some of my reading and¬†review writing in this last week.¬† I’ve posted these on amazon and might do so¬†on Goodreads too¬†but putting together blog posts just takes too long for me at the moment, even with a template, though I might put up the odd occasional post or share another’s if I can.

I want to thank everyone for all your support and the lovely messages I’ve received from many of you.¬† I’d like to stay in touch with everyone and I hope you aren’t disappointed if I leave for a while.¬† I’m not sure about when I’m¬†returning, I’m just concentrating on getting through this tough patch and recovering my health at the moment.¬† I hope everyone is well and your blogging as well as personal lives are going well.¬† Take care and let’s stay in touch ‚̧ ūüôā ūüôā

….Oh and I have one left over blog post (it’s been sitting in my drafts for weeks-forgot about it!)¬†I’m going to put up right after this one¬† so you have something to read while I’m away ūüôā


You can find me in these locations¬†if you’d like to chat¬†ūüôā :

It’s been a few days since my last post but the truth is that I’m struggling and haven’t really been around for some time.¬† Many of you might have noticed I’ve been sort of missing on most of my social media accounts.¬† I’ve been putting out automatic posts on the blog and occasionally replying to comments, but I really haven’t been well lately and I’m so sorry for not being around.Read More »

#Photography: A Cool Stream #Photo #Art #MPBooks

It is very hot in the UK at the moment and for many today may well be the hottest day of the year (and even since records began).¬† For those of you affected, like me, stay cool, hydrated and in the shade.¬† I hope you all stay well¬†and just to cheer up anyone who may be feeling a bit miserable from the overly oppressive heat, here’s a¬†photo I took a few weeks ago in London (before¬†the grass began to dry out) of a cool stream…or is it a brook?¬† I don’t know what it is, but the sound of the water trickling in an otherwise¬†quiet location¬†is wonderful.¬† ūüėéūüėéūüėé
