Normal Blogging Will Resume Soon

Yikes where does the time go?  July was my last post !  All I can say is sorry!  Thank you to some of my followers who emailed me this week asking if everything was okay - I am very grateful to you and you've prompted me in a nice way :)

The truth is real life got in the way!!  Nothing dramatic but work stress.  As some of you know I've been unhappy for a while and it's taken it's toll on me.  I admit I had to go to the Doctors as have been quite tearful and 'down in the dumps' but stayed at work and I've allowed work to overshadow everything else in my life.  We are so busy and constantly bullied to do more that I'm too tired for anything else and everything started to become neglected including work to our real size house.  I was staying back every night and doing lots of unpaid and paid overtime! So real life was put on hold BUT I WANT THAT REAL LIFE BACK AND MY MINIATURE INSPIRATION BACK!!!  

I have missed lots on blogland and need to spend some time catching up so all bear with me (there's only so much tea I can drink!).  I haven't been on the Dolls House Emporium Forum which I also enjoy so maybe it's time to get my backside into gear :)

I lost some inspiration for my miniatures and Lake View !!!! WHAT - how did that happen?? I even contemplated selling Lake View ! OMG!   I am not sure I like what we did to the fireplaces in Lake View but can't seem to find a solution.
Holiday:   I bought a new bike which I absolutely love just before Mr C & I went on holiday and we had a fantastic time.    We cycled almost everywhere (never done that before) and some of the views were stunning.   Went back to work for two days (still feeling the wonderful after effects of the holiday) and then last Tuesday got the 'orrible flu bug and spent two days in bed but on the mend now - hacking cough and no voice (Mr C likes that bit) so back to work tomorrow :(  

And just to bore you even more some holiday snaps:

  1. It's easy to say don't let work overwhelm you but I know from experience that it can and does. It's no good if it makes you feel so low. At the end of the day, your health and family are far more important. For me, inspiration tends to disappear when I'm stressed. I think you need to get a better balance between work and home. Is there a boss with a sympathetic ear you can talk to?

    Hope you feel brighter soon =0)

  2. Seguro que todo ira a mejor y podras dedicarte a lo que mas te gusta.
    Gracias por compartir las fotografias de tus vacaciones.

  3. Hi there! I am sorry to hear that you have so much pressure at work and it is no wonder that your mind and inspiration are just too tired to be creative. I keep my fingers crossed that you will find a way that makes real life easier again!
    Good luck! Hugs, Sandra

  4. Hey mate, hope you get some balance going in RL soon! It's bad when you feel like giving up the miniatures hobby.

  5. It's good to see you back again and hope things get a bit easier for you.

  6. I have something on my blog for you. :-D
