An Unplanned Break From Blogging

I hadn't realised until yesterday that I had given myself an unplanned break from my blog. I ran out of time to schedule posts over the weekend while I took a quick a trip back home. And this week is the first week of the school holidays so I've been busy working, afternoon napping and indulging in season 5 of Gossip Girl!  

Last weekend I went back to Gunnedah, out in the country where I grew up, for my Nan + Uncle's birthday party. It was really nice getting to see everyone again, and especially those whom I hadn't seen in years. I haven't had the chance to get back for over two years, which hasn't been a big deal because those in my family I am closest to come to visit me and my parents here on the coast. And with things like engagement parties, weddings, surprise birthdays and Mother Daughter Weekends it feels like I see my family a lot. I'm especially excited to see them in three weeks time for a second Mother Daughter Weekend for the year!

I usually like to start my week off by sharing a handful of posts I've enjoyed during the previous week, instead I started it off with a dreadful headache whilst running errands. It was the kind of headache that wouldn't allow me to get excited over a surprise saving  of $100 on my car registration. After a couple of days at work, my working week ended quite nicely and today I had the most delicious blueberry pancake for breakfast with an early morning Gossip Girl session. And I went out for lunch + coffee with my Mum, we did some banking and then she helped me pick out some summer pants. It was an easy breezy sort of day, one I intend to finish off with a book in bed. My unplanned break was just what I needed to get back into the swing of things for next week!

    It has been so long since I've gotten caught up on your blog :)! (I've been on a little hiatus myself so I definitely understand needing a little break!) Looks like you're doing wonderfully! Family time is precious so I"m glad you get to spend some :]

  2. Sometimes we all need a little break :) I honestly feel like the worst blogger ever when I don't post for a couple of days but well, life happens and sometimes it's just too busy! But I don't worry too much about it, I want to enjoy blogging, not rush myself about it :) xo

  3. It's really important to have a break- you can have too much of a good thing!Rx


Thanks for stopping by!
