This is a little bit of an apology really. My blog is not getting my attention as much as it should do at the moment. I am feeling it is a little bit hit and miss, as life seems to have thrown our family a couple of curve balls ( I just love this American phrase, we would say 'thrown a spanner in the works' in England.)
I know I have mentioned before that my father in law is very poorly and his health has taken a turn for the worse in the last couple of weeks. Although this does not affect me directly, it does affect my husband deeply and life feels a little bit difficult at the moment. We live two hours away from my father in law and my husband has made four visits back and forth this week, when his father has deteriorated. I am worried for him and for his health as he is absolutely exhausted.
On top of that, my parents have now been offered a place to live near us. This will have a huge impact on my life; a good one, as they have lived two hours away up until now. The only problem with them moving, is their move date is the day we go on holiday. So I am now panicking over our home we may as well call Noah's Ark, due to the amount of animals. My parents are going to try and move in around our holiday, so that they can still look after our zoo.
I have to say my parents are fantastic, they always put other people's needs first and very easy going about the decisions they make. I shall need to help with the move, so the next couple of weeks will be busy.
I find at times like this, sometimes you have to put things on a back burner for awhile. My desire to write is sitting in a pristine new writing pad and folder, waiting for my undivided attention, which at present is wondering around aimlessly, suffering from lack of concentration. My blog posts recently have been hurried and definitely the worst I have written. You all leave such wonderful comments, that I am amazed you are reading the same blog posts that I throw together. I have made no attempt at answering comments, as my mind has been elsewhere, so apologies to all of you who have left messages.
I am still visiting blogs and will do my best to keep up with them. However, if I don't blog everyday, as I normally do, then don't worry too much. I haven't gone AWOL just yet. I just need a day to recoup.
Thanks for being such fantastic blogging friends.
