Never forget to look up . . . you may be surprised what you will see
Welcome to September, can you believe it? I have been away from the blog, well most online activities, for a couple of weeks. I think it does you good to step away for a while and have a internet detox! Anyway I thought I'd drop in and update the blog and see what everyone has been up to.
I've been enjoying time with friends, going for some nice walks, reading and mulling over some writing ideas. And best of all, I enjoyed a week away to Majorca. Lots of sunshine and general lazing around. It was great to spend some time with the family as things are about to change around our house . . .
Firstly, our youngest daughter is heading back to university for her final year next weekend. She has been home for about three months, gaining some relevant work experience locally and generally taking a study break.
And then our eldest daughter is flying the nest the following week as she has bought her own home with her boyfriend. It's not too far away so I know I'll still see her lots but it's still a big step on the road to independence. I am so proud of them both and happy for them but I am not quite sure how I'm going to feel for a while. It'll be quiet round here but I guess I'll throw myself into my writing! I'm trying to think of it as the next chapter in my life!
It is also time to go back to the 'day job' next week and I know that will have a few changes in store for me as well.
Flowers in the Spanish sunshine . . . so cheerful
Maybe the stars have just aligned and decided to throw lots of adjustments at me at once! It'll all be fine . . . change is part of life and without it we can't move forward, I just need to take a deep breath and embrace it. But please bear with me . . . it may take me a week or two to settle into some new routines. Who knows, maybe it'll be my time to shine too.
Look ahead . . . you never know what's on the horizon
Thanks to Lexa and her lovely co-hosts
