Long time, no see

I blame Facebook. And Twitter. And Whatsapp. Not to mention Cooking Fever and Candy Crush, both of which I've installed and deleted from my iPad more times than I can remember.

I blame them for distracting me from the things I actually enjoy. Reading books, reading about books, writing, travel, photography, blogging. Hmmm not quite sure about that last one. Do I really enjoy blogging? Do I enjoy wondering what to post on a dull day because I know I ought to? Do I like having it on my to do list along with cleaning the bathroom and booking a dentist's appointment? Probably not, if I'm honest. There's more to this though. What blogging does achieve is reminding me of all those favourite pastimes. It encourages me to do them. More than that it makes me pay attention to what I'm doing. And that's no bad thing.


  1. Great to read you're back! I couldn't agree more re blogging, but also it keeps me writing on the days when I just don't feel like it. And that alone is worth a lot.

  2. Hello Vee! It's good to be back. Yes, regular writing is the thing. Plus the fact of writing for an audience, however small.

    1. Oh yes... I know that feeling well! I know that on the whole I'm writing my blog for me and not for much of an audience, but it doesn't matter... writing is writing. Keep it up x
