I am in trouble

It seems that I am in trouble.

Yesterday, and the day before yesterday, S. told me off for not writing lately, and he’s not been happy about the fact that I have been neglecting my blog. I have been doing so, yes I have neglected writing and blogging a lot lately. I have tried to read some other blogs, but I have been bad on the commenting side of things, but hopefully now I will be back with all my might.

Initially, I had planned to take a 2 week break from blogging. S. had a total of 2 weeks off from work, and we’ve been to the South of France on a great holiday for 10 days (more on that soon, I hope). During that time I had planned not to do much blogging, I did some reading (I read a book by a fellow blogger, review will be up soon).

But things came differently than I had originally planned, I spend 3 weeks away from blogging!! 3 whole weeks, I tried to comment and read other blogs during that time, but I didn’t manage to write anything myself. Life happened, and sometimes life changes around one’s priorities, and in my case the news I received prior to my holiday suffocated my inspiration and slowed my creative flow. But not only life happened, in the last two weeks of May I was quite busy with my German teaching, but in my case work cannot be an excuse for not blogging and not even writing a single line in my notebook…

So I am in trouble. And that mostly with myself, because not blogging is one thing, but not writing at all is another. S. has told me to get back to writing as he sees that I am more balanced when I do write, and that it does a lot of good for me. I think he is right, the days I write are genuinely good days, on which I am happy with myself, they are the days that have endless horizons and are full of future possibilities and projects, especially if I have received positive feedback from my readers.

Today is a strange day, for two weeks I have spend everyday with S. and little one, and today S. is back to work. He’s working his 10 hour day of the week from 9am to 8pm today, so we will not be seeing him much. I have no lessons scheduled for today, or for this week, and my parent’s aren’t around either. Which leaves me a whole day to write, write and guess what? Write! Besides writing I’ll buy onions, check my parent’s mail and water their plants, go for a walk with little one and visit and comment on other blogs. But today’s priority is writing.

Thanks for stopping by, Solveig

    1. Oh that is so lovely. I am sorry for the quietness, and not saying bye properly before leaving on my break. Things are better now, vacation helps …
      I hope that I’ll manage to be active in he weeks to come.

    1. Thanks for the support, I have the feeling that the rising temperatures have dried many of our pens, whoops here on the internet we don’t really use ink, now do we? 😉

    1. When I look around on the blogs I follow I see that many people are in the same situation at the moment. Maybe writing a post about your irregular blogging and lack of inspiration will get you back on track and get your creative juices flowing again. A sort of therapy post thing 😉


      1. I’ve noticed the same thing with blogs I follow but I think we all need a break once in awhile. I really am looking forward to posting since I have some nominations to reply to so that’s something to look forward to 🙂

  3. I have had the same thing happen. Routines change, summer sets in, life gets a little busier… but it is nice to know that it is there and once we return, it just feels better.

    1. I am so happy that I am back to blogging a bit more regularly now, but my blog visiting sprees keep me from writing on mine and replying to comments. Today I wanted to write but could not find the time, and my phone is good for reading and commenting but not that good for writing posts.

I won't bite, seriously!
