It has been a while since I popped in to see you. I hope that you are okay and not feeling too neglected. This summer I haven’t really paid you as much attention as usual and then I decided to take a break; a whole week off, eight days in fact. You haven’t done anything wrong, don’t worry, I still love you. It’s not you, it’s me. I needed some time, space and distance. A time to enjoy real life and my family. This was a significant summer for me with the children leaving, starting, changing school and way back in July when I went to the Britmums blogging conference, I came away feeling a little lacklustre. I wasn’t sure where we were going, whether I still liked the direction we had followed over recent months. I did even begin to wonder if I wanted to carry on. I realised that I needed to step away and give it all some time and thought.
