Heya. How goes it?

I've been pretty quiet here of late. Busy in real life (what else is new) and I don't really know why, but for some reason, I feel very much like retreating into my little virtual cave.

I don't feel like sharing my every thought on Facebook.

I don't want to put pics of my family up on Instagram.

I don't want to be giving advice to people.

Where before I wanted to share my ideas, now I feel as if writing posts is just one more thing I "have" to get done.

It's all a bit too much at the moment.

I just want to be present with my kids when I am at home.

I want to be able to go to work, earn a bit of pocket money, and come home.

I want to look after my family, cook, learn, help with our business.

I need to cocoon myself away for a bit.

I think that's probably normal and natural - going through cycles of feeling excited about the world and wanting to share that with others and then feeling like that's enough sharing for the moment. Quite possibly it's a very nasty case of PMS and in a week or so I'll get around to finishing off a couple of posts and be back to oversharing with the world.

But for now...just for a bit longer...I'm off to have a little nap.


  1. Do what you need to, girl, but know that we love you, and we'll be here when you're ready to come back.

    1. Aww - see that made me cry. I cry at the drop of a hat at the moment, I tell you!

  2. Absolutely, do what you need to do as Jeanne has said. Hope you are well :)

    1. Thank you! I think I'm well - just very tired, worn out and overstretched. At least I hope that's all it is.

    1. I could so do a real "retreat" right now - massage, meditation, sleeping - lots and lots of sleeping...

  4. Oh yes quiet. Enjoy mama!

    1. If only my brain would hush up, all would be good with the world...


Bloggers LOVE comments! We are pretty needy that way, so go on, leave some love :-)

52 Ancestors - Unusual Name

In this week's post, we have been asked to look behind an "unusual name" and I've chosen my great-aunt's husband, Fred...
