Landslide

I am not trying to predict the result of the general election. At the moment I am snowed under with jobs that I have been putting off and trying to avoid doing - letters to write, phone calls to make, sewing, mending and ironing so that I have some clothes to wear. Then the cottage needs Spring cleaning. Everything in the garden is now staring to grow and needs attention. Also there is the day job. I know that it is only part time, but it can not be ignored. So reluctantly, I have decided that I shall have to have a break from my blog to allow myself to catch up with things.



For now I shall leave you with this recently taken photograph of daffodils in the lane where I live, taken from the opposite direction to the one on my side bar.

Oh, lovely lane, though you must take time away from it all. Hope you'll be back soon.

Lovely time to take a break CW and catch up on those outstanding chores. Gaze out of your window (or down your lane) from time to time and enjoy the view of the daffodils whilst they last. Look forward to hearing from you again soon. A x

Well I shall miss you but you will remain on my sidebar and I'll wait for you to pop to the top with a new post.

In the meantime look after yourself - you're so busy with home, work, life, mum that 'you' probably gets left behind sometimes.

Love the daffodil lane. Feel compelled to walk to the end of it and see whats round the corner.
I am all behind with reading posts too.
Everything gets done in time & look forward to your visit when you can.

Things do pile up, don't they?

For various reasons (having baby, moving house, renovating) I don't think I've done a Spring Clean for about five years. I think it will have to be reinstated from next year!

There are times when real life interferes with blogging. I've just been through one of those times myself.

Take some time, do some things, and have some fun! We'll be here when you get back, waiting for whatever stories you may wish to tell us.

you may not have been referring to the election result - nevertheless I think your headline is a good prediction.

Hi CW - am so sorry I have not been around and visiting for such a long time. Your first paragraph summed up my life exactly too! There simply is not enough time to do it all, is there?

I hope you are managing to catch up with yourself a bit and regain some control. It is such a horrid feeling when you feel it all getting on top of you (I am in the same position right now - and always, it seems!!)

Hope you have been enjoying the lovely weather - and thank you for the pretty photos - I adore the lanes around here in April, daffodils everywhere. Gorgeous, and so uplifting on a sunny day.

cheshire wife said...

Thank you for all your kind comments and good wishes. I apologise for not responding sooner. We have been away twice in the last few weeks. Unfortunately it is taking longer than I had hoped to dig myself out from the landslide, but I hope to return to my blog soon.

Just stopped by to say "hello", I'm sure you are busy taking care of life and all of it's demands, but wanted to say I miss your posts, and come back soon !
Hugs,
