Time to stop = Time for me!

I have been a little absent from the blog land recently. A combination of things have caused this. First I dropped my phone in the bath (I know pretty stupid!) and now the Internet doesn't work (I do a lot of blogging from my phone) and secondly I have been crazy busy. We have been away lots and had loads of visitors, also just trying to make time for husband and working seems to fill my days without anything else. This means I haven't been overly productive with my knitting and combining that with not much time and limited Internet means very little blogging.

But enough with the complaining and excuses. This weekend has been amazing. I have today off as its a bank holiday and I took Friday off so that I could have a long weekend. It has been the best, we had no visitors and nowhere to go. Just me and the husband in the house for 4 days. Don't get me wrong I love having visitors and going away but some time on your own is so important and it feels like we haven't had that since May!

So what have the husband ad I been doing? Well we have watch loads of movies, gone swimming, ate lots of yummy food, I have knitted loads (so happy), started making my Christmas cards, started reading a new book, husband as played some PlayStation, watched the grand prix and generally just chilled and enjoyed each others company. Perfect!

I now feel totally recharged and ready for the next month which is looking to be as busy as the last few! But now I've had my "me time" not only do I feel ready for it, I'm looking forward to it. So I promise to be a better blogger and have some good stuff to show you!

Do you get like this, where you just need to stop and recharge?

I am posting this as part of anna's much love monday linky party, check it out to see what everyone else is loving today


  1. Time to yourselves is so important! Glad that you had the opprotunity to get some!

  2. I feel your pain. I dropped my phone in my coffee today and now it's sick and not functioning properly. Iam sitting in the dark in my eldest son's room being very quiet, catching up on blogs and email. BOOHOO feel very sorry for myself.

  3. Its nice to re-charge sometimes, I think we need to! Karima :)
