Minutes pass and suddenly they’ve become hours. Hours pass and then the day is gone. Likewise, days turn rapidly into weeks. And before you know it, the month has gone by. I didn’t plan on taking time off; it just happened.
I knew that it would be challenging to try to blog during July but I had not suspected it would be so hard during June as well. This has been the summer of “big trips” – first, two weeks or so in England and Wales, and then three weeks in Italy and Eastern Europe. I had hoped to be able at least to blog from the UK. But no. It seems you get better mobile coverage on a farm, two kilometres off-road in Tuscany than you do in the UK. The week we had back between the two holidays hardly gave me enough time to catch up on what had been going on in June, let alone start making plans for blogging in July.
I decided instead to opt for taking time off from blogging. And it has helped. I read a lot of other posts during the time and thought about what I want from blogging and what my goals are. I have a lot of ideas running through my head. And like a jigsaw, once I piece them all together, I know a plan will form. I am interested in seeing where this journey takes me.
And for now, I have some post ideas and I’ve already started on our holiday photos, totalling more than a thousand – editing them and putting them onto Instagram. And I’m enjoying exploring Snapchat, although I am still just a lurker on there.
But it feels good to be back.
