It’s funny, the things you can find an affiliation with.
My mobile phone is currently (and, in truth, has been doing so for several weeks. Oops.) displaying a notice that says the above title of this post and, the more I look at it, the more I nod in agreement and think ‘Yup… I totally get what you’re saying my friend… Me too.’
I’m referring to the hard drive that is my mind. It may have been noticed by some of you that I took a little break from blogging over the festive period/beginning of this month. I say it may have been noticed because I do not deign to think for a moment that any of you have spent your time hanging on for a post or wondering where I am or have been for the past however many weeks.
But, for continuity, I thought it best to write and catch up exactly what has been going on. And the answer is.. not a lot. Well, that’s a complete lie because a lot has been happening. But nothing that really calls for much attention or alarm. I’ve just been busy. Overwhelmingly busy at times.
So much so, that storage systems in my brain have been very full and therefore some system functions have, indeed, not been working. Hence the break from the blog. Which really bugs me because I love to write and maintain my little corner of the blogosphere. But sometimes a rest is needed.
Not that I have been doing much resting but I have been using my evenings to just switch off a bit. I’ve put our Netflix and Amazon prime accounts to very good use and regressed back to being a teenager by watching really crappy rom coms whilst nestled beneath a blanket with a cat nearby. Maybe less teenager… more old lady spinster type of vibe. Especially with my cardi/bed socks combo. Very chic.
Taking it ‘Easy’… ish.
I usually start a new year with renewed motivation and a thousand aspirations listed out that aim to improve life and it’s day to day runnings. But, this year, I simply couldn’t be arsed. I decided to adopt a completely different tact and just chill out a bit. Ease myself into 2018 slowly and really think about what I need to do as opposed to what I want to do. Mainly because 2017 kicked my arse a little bit.
I’ll be doing a whole post about my musings related to what I have decided are priorities for this year. Mostly it consists of looking after myself physically and just going with the flow a little more. Not sweating about deadlines and looking over the fence at greener grass sort of thing. I’m tending to my own lawn basically…. the fact I hate gardening need not apply, thankfully.
So; I am tentatively back on the blogging wheel and making space in my brain storage. Just as well as there is a whole lot ahead of our little family this year so systems need to actually function and get into gear!
And this post has been a nice way to start. Here’s to another year of mummy mayhem! Am now off to delete the 500 blurry images of the kids off of my phone, wade through apps I don’t need and sort through the old email inbox. Systems shall be back to full function in no time! Hurrah!
