Following Your Instincts

The last couple of days I’ve been feeling tired.

Very tired.

It’s nearly the end of term.

Almost Christmas!

Most loose ends are tied up.

I’m SO ready for the break.

To not have to be up! and out! so damn early.

To maybe, depending on the weather, even have a few child-free days.

When I’m tired, I get very can’t be bothered.

It’s times like this when the not so important things fall to the wayside.

Like blogging, for example.

The last couple of days I’ve been struggling to find things to write about.

And you know what?

That’s ok!

So I’m going to have a wee bloggy holiday.

I’m not going to worry about not posting every day, or even every other day.

It’s Christmas, and everyone needs a break.

So, I’m following my instincts here…

My bloggy holiday starts now!

I will no doubt still post, I don’t think I could completely go without – that’d be madness (for me at least!).

I’m just going to sit back, listen to some Christmas music, sort out the decorations, and enjoy time with my family, and chatting to friends.

Once the kids go back to school in January, I’ll be back to normal here though, you’re not getting rid of me that easily!

Merry Christmas everyone!

    A very Happy Bloggy holiday to you Marilyn… and a Merry Christmas too!

    A Bloggy holiday is a good idea, helps recharge your batteries. My max is two posts a week so I’m in awe of anyone who can do it everyday!

    xx Jazzy

    Happy Holidays my dear. Hope you have a lovely Christmas. I’m taking it easy on the bloggy front too, we get so caught up don’t we.

  35. December 20, 2010 / 9:04 pm

    I usually do 5-6 a week, sometimes a bit less if I’m in a bloggy rut, but I enjoy it, so it’s not too tough. 🙂
    Merry Christmas! xx

  36. December 20, 2010 / 9:04 pm

    And to you sweety! It’s *far* too easy to get caught up in it all, isn’t it? x
