Yesterday was my birthday, and I got sick. Last year, on my birthday, I caught the flu. It seems like almost every year, somewhere in the middle of winter, my body decides that it has had enough. So it gives me the flu or a nasty cold, or something in between, in an attempt to force me to slow down and actually rest. This year, I am taking heed. Call it sick leave if you will, but I’ve decided to take at least a week away from the blog. I love this little space of mine, but I think a small break will do me good. Plus, it means I’ll be able to actually just focus on my family during this precious holiday period.
Never fear, though, I’m not leaving you empty-handed. Earlier this week, I finally finished building my thumbnail galleries. Just click on the four tabs above (memory keeping, photography, family & personal, and wardrobe) and you’ll see what I mean. It’s been a work-in-progress for quite some time now, so I’m stoked it’s finally complete. What it means for you is that you can now have some fun poking around my archives, and it’ll be a lot easier to refer to some of the old posts that I’ve written. I won’t lie. I found myself reading some of my old wardrobe posts, and couldn’t stop giggling.
In addition to the thumbnail galleries, here are some of oldies but goodies – posts which I still love to read from time-to-time as a reminder to not take myself too seriously:
Best pants ever
Confessions of a female driver
Fancy mum and angry baby
It had to happen
It had to happen. Again.
The glory & fun of the third trimester
This is my man
This is why I’m unco-ordinated
Will Google cure my muffin top?
Anyway, thanks to every single one of you for always being so understanding and supportive, and for still reading here. I will probably still be updating Instagram and Facebook, so feel free to follow along. But apart from that, I’ll see you all in a week’s time!
Have a wonderful seven days, my friends.
ps. For those of you thinking of taking part in the next linkup for Excerpts from my journal, this will take place on Monday 22 July at 9am EST.
