There’s always talk in Twittertown and such of blogging (and general) mojo loss. Our dedication:inspiration ratio seems to be in a constant state of flux, with real life often getting in the way of much needed writing time 😉
Today I had a couple of posts planned out in my head and, as I drove the long drive back from Norfolk, I was confident that I could hit the keyboard as soon as I got in (after greeting the OH obv.) and ‘post one/bank one’.
But, what was this? As the journey wore on the words leaked out of my head, I tried repeating them under my breath, trying to force them not to abandon me, but number 3 insisted on me singing “She’ll be coming round the mountain..” and all hope of retention was lost.
Worse still, on a comfort stop (love that phrase), I checked into Twitter and clicked a link to a news site that literally made my jaw drop. I can’t talk about it yet- it deserves more than a glib comment, but I will at some point soon.
Sometimes life decides to slow you down and in doing so forces you to look at what you’ve got around you. I returned home to find a garden filled with blossom and spring flowers, so much had changed in a week. The OH had struggled on with his thankless task….decorating middley’s bedroom and was happy to pass the baton, for a while at least. The kids set about re-settling themselves and generally making it look like they’d never been away and I spent a moment or two in quiet contemplation.
We’re really lucky y’know…
