If we were having coffee today, I’d invite you to a local cafe. I’ve been stuck in the house for way too long. First, my dental surgery last Monday made me look like a victim of domestic violence, and then my son got ill and was off nursery for a whole week. Now, it may not seem a long time but when you watch CBeebies non-stop for several days in a row, a week may feel like an eternity. Thankfully, my son is much better today. My face is getting back to normal too. I’d much rather go for a walk, but the weather is very autumnal today. It’s raining and yellow leaves are flying by my windows: perfect day to share a cuppa.
So, tell me, how have you been? I’ve missed you dear reader. Holding a poorly boy on my lap and tending to a teething baby haven’t left me any space to write this week, so I had few opportunities to engage with you.
Except, I had to do a celebratory post yesterday. It was the first anniversary of my blogging. Here is a brief reflection on my blogging journey. To celebrate, I’m launching a new series The Story Behind The Story next week. Keep your eye on my blog and please cheer the women who will share the big why behind their writing journey or project. If you have an inspiring and heartful story to tell, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s all from me today. I know this is a bit brief (just grabbing a moment while the baby is asleep and my son is banging something downstairs under his dad’s supervision). If you’d like to read more inspiring posts, you could visit Diana’s website. She hosts week-end coffee shares every week.
P.S. I’m probably going to drop out of coffee shares for a while. I’ll keep blogging though so you can always come by and say hello at http://gularavincent.com.
