Welcome back to the blog. I'm sorry it has been awhile since I updated
you. I'm in the process of moving home and spend most of my time surrounded by packing boxes, duct tape and bubble wrap! When I'm not working on my day job that is.
So what else have I
been doing for the last few weeks? Not much I'm afraid. Packing has taken up a lot of my time and headspace, though occasionally I will have a great idea for one of my drafts that I have to write down before I forget it.
I would be remiss if I didn't comment on the Covid situation, the 2nd lockdown has already caused problems. I was due to move at the end of October and due to a number of issues, I've had to set it back to the
end of this month instead. Not that I mind, I've found that I have gathered a lot more stuff in the decade I've been in my current place than I thought was possible and since I'm sorting as I go along, the whole clearing and packing routine is a monumental
My mental health has taken a few knocks too over the last few weeks, and I don't mind admitting that. To be honest, I'd be querying your sanity if this whole year hadn't given cause
for raised eyebrows and a headache or two. I for one, will be very glad to see the end of 2020. In fact, the only real positives to come from the year is that family members are more inclined to make some form of contact (though for some it is more difficult
than others) and Personal Space is a thing again - I can actually move around in a supermarket or even out for a walk without being goosed accidentally by another's bags or have a trolley (shopping cart to my American friends) run into my ankles. Downfall?
Lack of social contact and the feeling of lonliness that is never too far away.
If you've stuck by me and my brain fogs for a while now, I thank you for all of your support.
I'm promising myself (even as thoughts go to New Year Resolutions to come) that next year will be a new year, a new start, a new life. I'm walking away from the negative, from the pain and hurt. I have my new diary all ready (I get all giddy when it comes
to filling out my details into the front of a new diary) to go and plans are afoot (as Sherlock Holmes has said I believe) in both my personal life and that as a writer. Don't worry, I'll update you as I go.
I must go, things to do, people to skype. Take Care, Look after each other and as always, Keep Reading! x
