I seem to be saying this more and more often, if not every post I write lately. This year is going so fast, at times I feel like I just can’t keep up. There is so much I want to write and I just don’t know where to start. Do people wan to read it? Would that grab there attention? Is this too personal? There is so much that is stopping me from actually getting the words written down.
When I first started blogging I was writing a post every day sometimes two. Now I have gone back to work I am lucky to write 3 a week. I just can’t seem to find the time to write. I get easily distracted, plus Christmas is just around the corner so I have been spending a lot of my time Christmas shopping. So much so my hubby has forbidden me from buying any more Christmas presents. ooopps.
I love writing this little blog but at times I wonder if it is even readable/likeable. I enjoy creating the content and will continue to do so but the doubt is still there. Anyway I am rambling a little bit. This post is supposed to be about what we have been up to so far during the half term.
This week has been a little strange one, BG1 & LM went to the cinema with nanny Monday afternoon to watch Trolls and didn’t return home again until Wednesday evening. Don’t you just love sleepovers at Nannies. This meant for a couple of days it was just me, the Hubby & BG2.
I wasn’t complaining. On Tuesday we caught the bus and went shopping. We took a long stroll through town and all we bought was warm pyjamas for the kids from Primark and a couple of fishing poles. Just before we got on the bus to go home we ended up going to Curry’s and picking up a filter coffee machine (That should keep the Hubby happy for a while).
On the Wednesday me and the Hubby spent the day cleaning. Man I hate cleaning and can’t think of anything worse to spend my day, but it had to be done. Sometimes I don’t know why we bother because the kids came home and today the living room is a mess again. The Hubby was super helpful and cleaned the kitchen and living room including mopping the floors while I cleaned upstairs.
Today we took the kids fishing. They had been going on about going fishing since the Summer. The Hubby didn’t have any holiday during the Summer so didn’t have time to take them, however he has had all half term holiday of so we decided to go fishing today. We got up early, packed a picnic and headed for the lake to catch some fish.
The kids were excited for all of an hour, then all they wanted to do was eat. And eat they did, constantly as we continued fishing.
We were there for five hours and didn’t catch a blooming thing. Not a sausage. We left disappointed, we just wanted one little fish, they were taunting us all day jumping out of the water but still they didn’t bite.
I had gone not to fish but to write. I was going to write a chapter of the story I’m in the middle of, maybe a couple of blog posts. I sat in the chair pen and paper in hand and… nothing. No words. My mind was blank and it was so frustrating. What a time to get writers block, when you don’t have phone signal, internet access or the TV to distract you yet no words flow from your brain. I was gutted, I had planned to write loads but when it came to it I wrote nothing.
I was more than happy to go home.
