Hi everyone and Happy Easter!  I hope you are all doing well.  Most of you know the rough road I’ve been on for the last couple of months regarding my health but hopefully the worst is behind me and I’m definitely doing much better than I was last month.  Not a lot has happened to me this last month so I’ll keep this round-up short.

Hello everyone.  I hope you are all well and having a great February.  I’m sure plenty of you know or if you didn’t might have spotted that I’ve been less active than usual.  I’ve reduced my posting schedule to just three a week (going out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday), been slow to reply to comments and I’ve not been around much on everyone else’s blogs.  No it hasn’t been a love of the Winter Olympics that’s kept me away, although I will admit that I am a fan of watching both the summer and winter Olympics.  First I’d like to apologise for being away for quite a bit.  Things have been a bit uphill in my personal life lately.  Apart from planning a move and the stress and complications of that and other things, I’ve had a bit of an accident too which has put me in a bit of a low mood recently.

So the first month of January feels as if it has flown by and I’ve been very busy.  Not only have I managed to post a lot of stuff on my blog and get back to pre-scheduling most posts, but I’ve also been busy in the offline world.  My time with blogging is going to be hampered a little bit though over the next month as I’ll be away for a bit, but I’ll still keep reading (I just can’t help but love reading!) and do my best to not let it look like I’ve disappeared.  To those kind friends who worry, don’t worry, I’m not pushing myself or anything, I have a lot of pre-saved posts all ready to go so you might not even notice I’m gone! lol  In the online world I also have some more exciting news to share but I want to save that until a little later when I’m sure everything’s going well.  So anyway, on to what’s happened in the last month…Read More »
