Time For A Break

July 8, 2017 — 79 Comments

Well my lovelies with the conclusion of a busy couple of months of work, that was tagged straight onto the end of the All Counties Challenge, I have come to the exhausted conclusion that I haven’t really had a proper break away from it ALL for a few years now so please do forgive me while I pop into hibernation for a couple of weeks and take a time out. 

Unless scheduled in advance, emails and the blog, along with Facebook, Twitter and all of that stuff will fall silent as I take a very long hot scented bath, a walk in the country, a train ride to anywhere, sniff random flowers, go for a shopping trip to a craft shop, grab a coffee with a total stranger or whatever else crosses my mind and basically have a bit of ‘me time’.

You can of course plunder the archives here for all sorts of ramblings as everything that I’ve done in the last three years is still here for your enjoyment. 

Rest assured that I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with more blogging goodness, and random blether. 

There are just some signposts telling me that I should press the reset button and recharge the batteries – you don’t want to know where they get inserted. 

Play nicely and enjoy life and I look forward to seeing you back here in a couple of weeks. :)

In this post I will be sharing some that I have tried out but this list is by no means the end of the road.
