taking a break

Last week was exhausting – for various reasons, not all of which I’ve shared here. It was mostly about the kids strike though and the culmination of six-weeks of build up to it, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m well and truly in need of a break.

My favourite place in the whole world.

My favourite place in the whole world.

As much as I would love to announce that I’m about to skip off to the Swiss Alps for a week spent sipping wine, hiking through flowering pastures and eating my body weight in melted cheese, that’s just not gonna happen right now. I am however, taking a week off the blog and off social media. Yes, tonight I’m deleting all the pesky, pinging apps, logging off and taking some time away from the chatter.

Instead I’m planning to spend more time reading, writing, drawing and seeing family and friends. I may also get some ironing done but don’t hold your breath. I’m kind of hoping it helps me to break my smart phone addiction too – of course, I’ll still be able to get texts and emails and even phone calls (if anyone still makes those) but without the constant humming presence of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram I’ll be less drawn to my little glowing drug. And that can only be a good thing.

On the blog front, I’m putting my weekly ‘What I’m Writing’ linky into the capable hands of Nicola at Nikki Young Writes while I step completely away from the lure of stats and the pressure of posting. Please do link up over there – I’ll look forward to catching up with your posts when I’m back online!

See you soon, my friends.

    Hi Maddy, taking any sort of break is good, although a break in the Swiss Alps sounds the business! Never mind the pile of ironing, it’s a bit like the magic porridge pot and is impossible to empty.

    Have a fab week off.

    xx
