Where did that week go?????

OMG - I don't know what happened, but I think I lost a whole week. Perhaps I time travelled a week into the future as I really couldn't tell you where the week went. I can only apologise for my absence again. I really hope it will be business as usual from now on, as long as everyone ignores my two week absence which will occur during August - apart from that I should be around.

The problem was we had a fabulous weekend away and I came back to a really busy week. I have been out every day picking up birthday presents and checking off things needed for a forthcoming camping trip as well as our trip to the Canary Islands. Then I decided that certain cupboards in my house needed organisation and once I started with one cupboard, I just couldn't stop. We also decided to replant our front garden which took us two days - one day to dig it all up and another day to replant it. My evenings were busy too, as the girls had a dance show, and we also had to visit my brother, who moved into his new house this week. I didn't even pick up a book to read between Thursday the week before last and yesterday. That is ten days without reading. Aarggh - am I going to reach my monthly reading target - I think not!

I just didn't have time to sit down and work on my blog, so I just abandoned it. In fact, I have barely had my computer on at all during the last week, which is like having my throat cut!

The forthcoming week will still be busy, as the girls have one last week left at school, before the holidays begin. However, I hope to be more on top of things and keep up with my blogging and reading.

I am going to have to press Mark as Read on my google reader, but please let me know if there are any posts that I have missed that you know I would love. I hope to get around and visit as many of you as possible as I have missed you all.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  6. It boggles my mind that your girls are still in school. The boys have been out for about 6 weeks now and we have about a month until we start up again. I'm counting down the days!

    I think I could a use a week with no computer - I would probably accomplish a whole lot more!

  9. You have been busy and I'm with Molly, if I had a week without a computer I'd probably accomplish a lot more :) Granted, I'll be constantly wondering what I'm missing out on! haha....

    Hang in there and hope you find some relaxing time in there so you can catch up with your reading.

  13. I think everyone has been having a summer like that! It's great that you're getting so much accomplished though, and sometimes taking a break from the computer is a very good thing (I say that even though I go through withdrawals myself). I hope this week and your upcoming vacation are much more easygoing for you.

  16. Hey Vivienne...It's summer and you need to have fun and do the things that bring you joy. I totally understand. Replanting the garden...wow that's impressive. I am so happy for you about your upcoming Canary Island trip. Please take pics. I would love to see them.

  17. Sometimes things just get busy. I've had that happening to me so often as of late. Hope things start to slow down soon.
