I even asked my dear husband to give me a makeover…
Whilst on the Christmas break, I came to the conclusion that I do miss blogging, BUT I don't want to carry on as I was before. I won't lie, blogging every day had become a bit of a strain, and although I was never under any obligation to blog, I put pressure on myself to come up something, no matter how meagre everyday.
So going forward, I have decided that I will not be blogging on weekends. Five times a week, most weeks, will be more than enough, and will give me the chance to step away, and maybe even have the time to comment on others people's! As of late I have been reading on my iPad, late at night, and rarely commenting. This makes me feel bad, so I want to fix that too.
I will no longer spend each and every evening agonising about having something to blog, nor feel the pressure to have a never-ending pile of finishes to show, it will be what it will be.
I do not have major work-home stresses, I am so lucky to have my part-time, part-year permanent job, but there is room for improvement in how time is spent at home. We have lived here for 4 years and things need doing, clearing, sorting, arranging, a concerted effort is needed. The kids are less demanding, and can be trusted to entertain themselves now, so we have no excuse for not getting on with things. And get on, this year, we will!
I want to continue to take on commissions too, but also have time to finish some of my long-standing projects, ahem; I want to have time to ponder and doodle and come up with some original-to-me ideas and use up lots and lots of fabric.
Let's see how it goes!
Next week I will be joining in the Around The World Blog Hop and re-visiting my poor show of finishes for FAL Q4. I already have Bee blocks made for January, and a few other bits sewn over the holidays, so the pressure is off for next week already. Good job, as I have ice-skating and going back to work to look forward to.
Have a great weekend xxx
